The 12th Annual Fly-In and Threshers Reunion, July 2, 3, 4 1982,
Denton, North Carolina, was a success with a record number of both
exhibitors and spectators. There were approximately 500 exhibitors
of gas, steam and antique tractors for the three-day event. The
demonstrations of threshing with horse-power, steam power and oil
power along with sawmilling, shingle mill, rock crushing and
combining with a 1928 Caterpillar Combine with a 12′ header,
along with other demonstrations are done on schedule. There are
continuous operations of the ‘Moonshine Still’, gas
engines, and the display of steam engines in the exhibition
building. A veneer lathe with a 80HP Fairbanks Morse Diesel for
power will be added to the list of demonstrations this year. Mso,
another day will be added to the event this year.
The newest attraction for the ’82 show was the Handy Dandy
Railroad. It was in continuous operation during the show.
We would like to say ‘Thanks’ to all the exhibitors and
the folks that help with the activities during the show and invite
everybody to come join us for 4 big days, July 1, 2, 3, 4, 1983 at
