As the weather cools down, the shows in the Northwest are winding down and you're putting your engines and tractors away. Hope you all had a great season.

Out here in Sunny Arizona, we wait for it to cool down enough so we can touch our old iron. We just held our 10th annual show, October 3rd and 4th, at the Bob Sheppard Farm in Goodyear, Arizona.

We were very happy to have 126 engines and displays and 117 tractors. There was a parade at 1:00. The lead tractor carrying the U. S. and Arizona flags belongs to Dawn and Henry Miller. It's a 22-44 Oliver.

There was a tractor pull both days. Our very special announcer and score keeper, Larry Stafford and Nancy Genepper, and a well organized tractor committee, pulled 79 tractors in three hours on both days.

The engines ran early each day, and we had a great crowd watching and asking questions. Ray Webb brought his four-sided molding planes manufactured by David N. Brown, St. Louis, Missouri. Powered by a 1914 two-cylinder, 8 HP Cushman, this unit was last used in 1929 at Miame, Arizona. John C. Phillips had a 25 HP Foos mine-hoist engine. Buster Brown, of Welton, Arizona, brought his steam tractor engine and a hot air engine. Jim Blain of Tucson brought his hot air engine. There were too many to mention every one.
