The Georgian Bay Steam Club held their annual show on the August 1st holiday weekend at Cookstown, Ontario. The trophy winner for the best restored tractor prior to 1930 went to Bruce Goss of R.R. #3, Coldwater, Ontario for his glistening grey 1929 Rumely-Model Y -30 50 HP, serial number 210, engine RPM 625-635. This Oil Pull was used in a saw mill for 20 years and subsequently provided belt power for a threshing outfit at Elmvale, Ontario for 15 years. Only 245 of the Model Y Oil Pulls were originally made by the Advance Rumely Company.

Another trophy winner was Ralph Mertz with his John Deere, Model R engine, RPM - 1000. The picture enclosed is of the flywheel side.

The 18-36 Hart Parr, a crowd favorite, belongs to Albert Fife of Miiton, Ontario. The interesting 12 HP Fairbanks Morse engine is owned by Harry Fraser.
