The weather was hot as usual for Kansas in August. We want to thank all of you exhibitors who helped make our twenty-eighth show bigger and better. The show is put on by our local organization, The Wheat Heritage Engine and Threshing Company, Goessel, Kansas, always on the first weekend in August.

There are approximately 80 gas engines, 125 tractors, several large prairie gas tractors, a couple of steam engines, several large gas engines including a 200 HP De La Vergne sideshaft, an 80 HP Miller sideshaft. There is a seven building museum dedicated to the coming of the Mennonites to central Kansas in 1874, and with them Turkey Red, hard, winter wheat. A flea market, a sawmill, and an antique tractor pull as well as a garden tractor pull are all part of the weekend activities. A complete range of agricultural exhibits and activities are planned.

Goessel is located in the central part of Kansas, about 35 miles north of Wichita. Come and join us August 3, 4, and 5, 2001, for a great weekend that the whole family will enjoy.
