Route 4, Millersburg, Ohio 44654

The Weather Man blessed us with lots of sunshine on Saturday, July 7, 1973 which was the day we had our Second Annual Gas Meet at Mt. Hope, Ohio.

We are not a Club. The Gas Meets expenses are shared by the following: Eli H. Bowman, Levi S. Mast and Myself (Roy). We had a good many engines at this year's

show, for all over the State. We had a few very interesting engines such as a Hot Tube Engine shown and operated by Glen Hotyl; a Domestic side shaft shown by Andy C. Weaver; also had wooden washing machine. Buzz saw owned and operated by Roman A. Troyer (known as Big Roman). Ha! Baker Fan, fanning mill, spark plug collection.

My thanks to everyone who helped make this Gas Meet possible. I attended quite a few shows last summer. Hope to make the Rounds again this summer if we can get fuel. Ha!

I want you to know I enjoy G.E.M. Smoke Rings and all. Keep up the good work.
