OFES members pose at last year's Portland show. Russell Farmer is third from left, front row.

Greetings, Oilfield Engine enthusiasts! This month we have the
OFES group photo taken at the 2001 Portland show. I am so thrilled
that the society has grown so much in such a short time. I have met
so many wonderful folks – it makes me feel as though we all are a
family of sorts. I would like to once again thank Brother Matt
Flanigan for all his work on the OFES pork chop dinner at Portland.
On the subject of dinner, we will again have an OFES winter dinner
meeting for our members in the Midwest at Hagerstown, Ind. We will
set a date and send a mailing with details as the time

For those Oaf’s in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, Brother
Bill Tremel has indicated he’d like to try and start a similar
‘Appalachian Region’ mid-winter dinner. Bill’s contact
information is listed at the end of his interesting article on the
D.C. & U convertible steam and gas engine, which appears on
page 29, following his and Joe Prinzinger’s fascinating article
on the history of the Tillinghast Machine Shop, which starts on
page 25. I hope you enjoy reading these articles as much as I did,
and as always, please contact me if you’d like a free
membership in the Oil Field Engine Society.
