    'Even if you can’t afford to haul your big oil field engine, such as this 20 HP Bessemer on display at the Tri-State show in Portland, Ind., last year, it’s still well worth it to haul yourself to a show this summer. '

The latest from OFES

As the saying goes "time flies when you're having fun" and that's just my thought as we come into August and September; late summer but as with each year a busy time in my area for the oil field engine enthusiast.

In my position as secretary/caretaker or whatever it's called, of the Oil Field Engine Society (OFES), I always try as best I can either via this column or the Internet, to promote shows that want to feature oil field engines. I am happy to report that there already have been several this year and more yet to come.

The Wheels of Yesteryear show in Bluffton, Ind., is Aug. 8-10, featuring lesser known tractors and of course oil field engines. For information on this show, contact Dave Park, (260) 824-4743.

The West Virginia Oil & Gas Festival at Sistersville, W.Va., will be Sept. 12-13.

The Northern Indiana Historical Power Association Antique Equipment Show is Sept. 26-28 and features oil field engines along with Cockshutt tractors. Visit www.nihpa.org for info.

Also, the directors of "Northern Indiana Power From the Past" have already contacted us to have an oil field engine feature at their show, which will be the third weekend of July 2009. For information on that show contact Robert Smith, (800) 572-3651.
