In the issue that I listed the locations and dates of the 1995
Regional Meets, I did not have the dates for the Northwest
Regional. The dates will be September 2-3, 1995, and it will be
hosted near Klamath Falls, Oregon, by Branch 21. Contact Otto
Mueller at 503-798-1058 for more information.

I enjoy receiving newsletters from all of the branches. They are
all very informative of the news in the local branches. This lets
the National know what is going on at the local level. One thing in
common with all the newsletters is the fact that the editors are
begging for more news items. If you have been thinking about doing
an article about your favorite engine or tractor or an experience
you had as you were growing up, share it with your Editor. You
might even want to send it in to GEM!

Another feature of the newsletters deals with safety. This is a
very important part of our shows. It takes everyone’s
involvement. H. R. Shoemaker, Safety Officer for Branch 16, gave a
very good talk on safety at our April meeting. One good point that
he made was to know your neighbor at the show. The exhibitor next
to you may be someone from out-of-town who’s not aware of your
safety requirements. So, help each other and know their equipment
so that you can stop an engine or tractor if needed. We have a good
track record but we need to work hard to keep it. By working
together and watching out for each other, we can all enjoy a safe
season of shows.

Hope to see you at some of the shows this summer!
