| May/June 1978

Well, the gas engine show season is about over. I like to look back and sort of review what has gone on.

Last March, while attending the show at Zolfo Springs, Florida, I ran into a friend from Indiana. He told us that with his son, Don Bole from Hartford City, they were planning a get-together at Roll, Indiana, a small town seven or eight miles north of Hartford City, Indiana, and would I bring some engines and attend?

The show was to start on Friday, but to help in getting things set, we went over on Tuesday. Starting on Tuesday, the hospitality, good times, and fellowship began. Each evening there seemed to be something interesting to do. Everything was well organized. Nothing was left out or forgotten.

There was entertainment, flea markets, engines, tractors, and plenty of good food and refreshments on the grounds.

There was a talent contest on Friday evening, followed by an exhibition of skill and daring mini-car driving by Kokomo Shriners Club. At 9:30 local square dancing clubs performed western style dancing for the audience. Saturday was filled with fun and contests for all ages-hoola-hoops, kite flying and horseshoe pitching were among the activities of the day. Don Bole is the leader of a well-known musical band. To watch them practice their music for the Saturday night show, for me, the guest, was well worth the time.
