This year the Blue Ridge Steam and Gas Association will celebrate its fifth year as a chartered non-profit organization.

Our show this past year was very successful due to enthusiastic community support that included the Weyers Cave Volunteer Fire Department.

In addition to the antique tractor pull and 186 gas engines, the kiddie tractor pull proved to be a big event. A cross-cut sawing contest resulted in lots of sawdust, sweat, and aching muscles. Paul Bunyan would have been proud of us.

Our exhibitors and displays were up 25% over last year. Also participating were community businesses, civic organizations, schools and other steam and gas organizations. There were six other steam and gas organizations participating with our show from as far away as Florida.

The steam engine folks again this past year did an excellent job with their five big engines and 26 steam models. 'Lotsa air was available.'
