3007 Twin Creeks Lane, Rocklin, California 95677

Another great showing at the fair again this year, September 9 through 12, at Auburn, California. The big hit was the beautiful Yuba Ball. Don and Patti Dougherty and their crew from STL TIKN machinery had her all shined up and running great. Bill Santos had his latest Best 25 running like new, along with his Galloway hit and miss. Bill Jr. brought a rear seat Cat 30. Jason Ludford showed up with his Cat 10, 22, 30. Jack Garrison cut firewood with his 7 HP Economy saw rig. Bill Sommers and his 1? HP Fairbanks and a 2? HP Economy never stopped.

My dad and I brought out our 6 HP Weber for the first time and it never missed a beat all four days. Gary and Gail Nored's 12 HP Samson never stopped. Shows how good California built engines are! Ron Ludford's 10 HP Fairbanks ran a blower that kept a beach ball floating and the kids loved it. His 2 HP Fairbanks H ran a smaller blower that helped keep us cool. Craig Barton's eight cycle aermotor drew a crowd and Jim Chamberlin had a Cletrac with a few minor changes.

Thanks to everyone for taking time to show. Stop by my web page at and say HI!!!
