Compliments & Thank You

By Staff

We want to compliment and thank Sam Yewusiak, our Western
Montana Fair manager.

Sam has a lot of engines and is very interested in antique
engines and tractors. As the Missoula County Fair manager, he has
arranged space for our engine/tractor exhibits and, boy, do we have
a great time! The show has grown every year since it started in
1991. We have exhibitors from Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, Nebraska,
the Dakotas, Canada and Montana.

There are upwards of 200 engines, 100,000 spectators, maybe 40
tractors, along with model displays, saw mill, diesel generator and
steam tractors. And there’s everything else that you find at a
large county fair: carnival, Ferris wheel, blacksmiths, horse
racing, 4-H projects, all kinds of animals, home displays, along
with a rip-roaring rodeo and ending with a stem-winding demolition
derby!

Everybody has a great time and, of course we all get some good
leads from the folks that stop and talk about the displays. Thanks
again, Sam.

7-11).
