Antique Power Association Show

27 Loon Lake Road Bigfork, Montana 59911

In the real estate business that tells it all when you want people to come and see what you have to show. And that is exactly what happened at the sixth Northwest Antique Power Association Show held on September 11-12, 1999, in Columbia Falls, Montana.

This year we had spectators register for a door prize at the entrance gate, so we could get an idea of where the people were from. We came up with a total of twenty states and five Canadian provinces represented by spectators.

It was a very good crowd both days with beautiful weather. All the planned events went well-plowing, threshing with steam tractors, slow tractor race and egg breaking contest. I must thank Don Lake for having his 'barrel train' running both days, giving rides to the 'little people.'

Our exhibitors made for a great show. We had 65 tractors of all makes and sizes-that was a sight to see. A total of 137 engines that ranged from ? HP up to 35 HP were shown. If all the owners could get their engines going I would bet that, at one time or another, all 137 engines were up and running.

Our year 2000 show will be held on September 9-10 at our show grounds in Columbia Falls, Montana. Contact me, John Edgerton, or Norm Myers, 225 Pheasant Drive, Kalispell, Montana 59901 for further information.
