1999 Riverbend Steam and Gas Show

| May/June 2000

2222 92nd Street, Byron Center, Michigan 49315

The 31st annual Riverbend Steam and Gas Association Show was held July 16-17, 1999, in Allendale, Michigan. The show keeps growing every year and was a great success. Spectator and exhibitor turnout was also great despite Saturday morning's hard rain that did help settle the dust.

Our feature for 1999 was the Oliver Hart-Parr line of tractors and farm equipment. Kevin Cooke, of Hudsonville, brought two Hart-Parrs, a 1927 model 18-36 and a 1928 model 28-50. Kevin took the time to demonstrate both of these tractors on the club's Baker fan.

The following people brought Oliver tractors: Jim Packer-Oliver 77 Standard; John Heuvelman-a beautifully restored Oliver HG that was pictured on our 1999 show flyer; Harold Walters-Oliver 66 row crop; Dale Spoelman-Oliver Super 77; Rodney Woolf-1951 Oliver 88; and club member A1 Weaver-1942 Oliver 70. The club thanks these guys for bringing in the featured tractor for 1999.
