The annual Arizona Fly wheelers Engine Show was held in Cottonwood, Arizona, February 13-14, 1993, hosted by Betty and Graydon Gaudy, at their home near the banks of the Verde River. A pot luck dinner was held Saturday night at the Gaudy's, and was attended by over 60 members and guests. It was a festive affair with local members renewing friendships with out-of-towners, discussing new acquisitions, future shows and trips.

Attending the two-day show were over 600 guests from 23 states, plus Canada and Australia. Saturday weather was in the 50s but sunny and dry Sunday was overcast with occasional light drizzle but that did not dampen enthusiasm nor attendance.

All day Friday engines of all sizes and types arrived from throughout the country, and continued coming until the start of the show on Saturday morning. There were a total of 48 exhibitors participating.

On display were 110 engines fully restored and operational, with an estimated total of 1,073.032 HP. Included were three 60 HP engines and one 80 HP three cylinder engine, one stationary steam engine, two model steam engines, a steam tractor, and various novelty type engines.

I here were several working exhibits powered by 1 to 5 HP gas engines. A display of a grain grinder turning corn from coarse to a fine meal was operating both days. An antique wooden dowel maker delighted the crowds, including some very young, by changing the shape of a inch wood square to a inch round rod in less than a minute. Several water pumps were busy
