We'd like to welcome Branch 56 into the National. Branch 56 secretary/treasurer is Lynn Acord, P.O. Box 385, Encampment, Wyoming 82323.

We just returned from Salt Lake City, Utah, where this year's National Meeting was held. A big thanks to Bruce Rodgers and all the members of Branch 14 for an outstanding show! This was the 10th annual show for Branch 14.

The feature tractor of the National Meeting was Power Horse. The Power Horse is a tractor that was developed and built in Utah. Albert W. Bonham (Bert) had an idea of how to build a tractor that would take the place of a team of horses. A tractor of this design would allow the farmer to use his horse-drawn equipment. I didn't count the Power Horse tractors on display, but they had some nicely restored tractors. A lot of the gas engines that were on display were West Coast engines. We also enjoyed the tractor pull! Thanks again to Branch 14 for hosting this year's National!

Plan ahead for the 1995 National which will be hosted by Branch 15. The dates are July 28-30, 1995, at Antique Power land, Brooks, Oregon.

We have a new director for the East Region. He is Jerry Wymore from Branch 40. He replaces Ed Longhenry. Ed has served as Director of East Region for two years and we would like to say thanks to Ed for a job well done. More from the National in the next issue.
