Northwest Antique Power Association Only Two Years Old But Very Busy

| August/September 1996

603 Loon Lake Road, Bigfork, Montana 59911

The Northwest Antique Power Association was formed February 21, 1994 and on March 21, 1994, we were accepted into the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, and we are Branch 47. The club, located in Columbia Falls, Montana, meets every third Monday of the month (except for December), at 7:30 p.m. at the LaSalle Grange Hall, on Highway 2.

In 1994, Jim Matson was president; Steve Skyberg, vice president; Dan Tombrink, secretary; and Donn Thurston, treasurer. We had fifty-one charter members. These officers held their offices two years.

The newly elected officers for 1996 are Nick Poncelet, president; Clyde Pederson, vice president; John Edgerton, secretary; and Cliff Sedivy, treasurer.

In 1994 we had a Spring Crank-Up and a Fall Threshing Bee. Again in 1995 we had a Spring Crank-Up and a Fall Threshing Bee.

The 1996 Spring Crank-Up was a complete wash-out! The show grounds were under water so we postponed it until June 22, 1996, with the hope that things would be dry by then.
