EDGE&TA Vice President 2292 Lake Morena Drive Campo, California 91906 619-478-5500 Fax 619-478-5502

I hope you are all starting to warm up and thaw out from the cold winter. I would like to correct some information that was printed in my last article. There was a misprint in the Director's assignments for EDGE&TA. Gus Peterson is the Director for the Northwest. His phone number is 541-934-2601. Floyd Schmall and I are directors in the Southwest. Also, the dates for the Southwest Regional that were printed on the back of the February issue were wrong. The correct dates are April 20, 21, and 22. This will be the first Regional show for 2001. Early set-up will be on Friday, April 20 and the EDGE&TA meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening. Show hours on Saturday are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This show is being held in conjunction with the Tulare Antique Farm and Equipment Show. This is probably one of the biggest shows on the West Coast. For more information, you can call Granger Glenn at 559-787-2464 or e-mail:

The National EDGE&TA show will be hosted by Branch 32 on June 21, 22, and 23 in Ozark, Arkansas. This should be a great show, and I hope to see many EDGE&TA members from across the U. S. there. The vice president of Branch 32 and National Meeting Committee chairman is Mike Collins. He can be reached for further information at 501-890-4802 or e-mail: or Betty Bocksnick at 501-331-2619 or e-mail: You may check out information on the National and all Regional shows at

With the show season starting up, don't forget that safety is the first order of business. Each show has a safety person, but remember, we are all responsible for safety and should be looking out for each other. When you attend shows, don't forget to bring stanchions, safety ropes, and fire extinguishers. Remember to follow the rules pertaining to distances between ropes and engines and other specifications that you will find in your safety guidelines. If you have questions, I'm sure the designated safety person can assist you.

In closing, the Directors and Advisors of EDGE&TA are here to assist you in any way we can. Please feel free to call on any of us if the need arises.
