We just finished our Branch #9 EDGE&TA 6th Father's Day Gas-Up. It was a great show. We had a lot of outside clubs join us in the fun. I want to thank each one. Also two car clubs joined in Sunday. Sure was great. I didn't count all the engines and tractors. There were a lot of them.

We had a good church service. I have been in charge of the services for six years, but they didn't tell me it was changed from 8 to 9 o'clock. But we went with it and rang the old church and school bell. It brought them in. We had over thirty people.

There was one display with four Thermoil engines; a 3 HP-6HP, 8 HP and a 9 HP. All the engines were started with a crank. The Thermoils belong to Jim B. McMullen of Portland and Bill Wallner of Cave Junction. A 6 HP Davenport was belted to a feed grinder. It ran two days and used about three gallons of kerosene.
