Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association Inc.

| January/February 1993

3510 Brooklake Rd., N.E. Brooks, Oregon 97303

It has come to our attention that in the past few months several clubs that are not affiliated with our organization are using our name in conjunction with their clubs. I am hereby putting you clubs on notice that this is illegal. Our name, the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, Inc., and the logo EDGE&TA, are federally registered. They were registered in 1959 at the time of our incorporation. If your clubs or group would like to continue to use this name, we would welcome you to come in with us and become a branch. If you desire to continue using this name without our permission, we are prepared to assess your group a fee of $2000.00 per year for this right. We take this matter very seriously and do not feel that it should be ignored. If you don't feel that we are serious about this matter, just ignore it and we will take the necessary steps to correct it. We are prepared to take legal action on this matter, and if you feel that your group has the funds to defend it self in court, just give us a try.

We feel that the best way to handle this matter is for your group to become a branch or just change your name. If there are any questions on this matter I will be glad to discuss it with you.

Now on to other things. We just recently formed another branch. It is Branch 42 and is located in the state of Michigan. They are a very active group and will be beneficial to the National.

At our recent National, a new director for the Eastern Region was elected. He is Ed Longhenry, president of Branch 1 in the state of Minnesota. Ed has been a club officer and member for a good number of years and we feel that he will be a definite asset to the National.

I have been informed that Branch 13, which is hosting the 1993 National in Grass Valley, California, is coming along very well with their preparations for the show and meeting. This should be a very fine event as it is located in the Sierra Mountains among the tall trees and historic logging and mining country. We are looking forward to this event.
