Letters and Miscellanies
Here are photos and information on a local show the members of
Branch 13 and 111 enjoy every year. I want to start off thanking
everyone who took the time to make the Gold Country Fair in Auburn,
Calif., a huge success this year. Jim Clayton, Bill Sommers, my
dad, Sonny Crockett, and I showed our favorite engines. Jim
Chamberlin showed two beautiful Cletrac tractors (top). Don
Dougherty brought his IHC High Wheeler (above center). Bill Santos
Sr. and Bill Santos Jr. showed a Samuel Morey engine (above).
Also, every year Bob Currie invites members of Branch 13 and 111
to a nice little one-day event called Founders Day in Georgetown,
Calif. We set up next to the 10-stamp stamp mill. We’ll see
everyone next year.
