Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association

| October/November 1995

Vice President, Rt 2, Box 167A, Republic, Missouri 65738

We would like to welcome Branch 67 into the National. Bill Bracht, 2454 SW 2nd Ave, Ontario, Or 97914, serves as secretary-treasurer.

Jerry Wymore, Director East, and I had the privilege of representing the EDGE&TA at the Ageless Iron Expo held at Ankeny, Iowa, July 1-4. This was a show hosted by Successful Farming magazine. A very large show with over 1,000 antique tractors, gas engines and steam engines. There was also a large display of scale models. Jerry and I, along with our wives, were able to meet several members from various branches of EDGE&TA and also pass out literature and make contacts that may result in more new branches for the National. We would like to say a big thanks to Successful Farming for inviting us.

Our sympathy is extended to Jack Versteeg, National President, on the death of his father. Also our sympathy to the family of Bill Neatherlin. Bill passed away April 18, 1995. He was a very active member of Branch 13, where he served as president for four years and editor of their newsletter for two years. Bill also served one term as National President 1988-1989.

Hope your summer didn't go by as fast as mine did. So many shows to make, so little time. As one fellow once told me, my work interferes with my loafing!
