The 9th annual Blanchard Millpond Steam and Gas Engine Show, which was held August 25,26,27,1995, is now history. The weather was great, and so was the turnout.

The show is now under new management, and as 'green horns,' I think we did a super jobs. The group consisted of Stan and Steve Delo, Jarot Karcher, Greg Allen, Preston Miller and me. I would also like to thank Ed Kinch of West Branch, for the pointers and advice on how to get started.

Now about the show. There were five steam engines buzzing up logs, thrashing oats, etc. There was a good turnout for the tractor pulls on Saturday and Sunday, with the Powder Puff on Saturday morning. Terry Foote put on the horse pull, which was a great crowd pleaser. Ten teams of pullers from around the area were present.

There was a great showing of gas engine enthusiasts, along with their families, which is why this is an enjoyable family hobby. Also, the tractor display area was full, with all brands being present, along with Stan Delo's 1947 'Love' tractor (very sharp).

The petting zoo kept the 'little people' busy with the baby farm animals. The children's games were under the watchful eye of Barb Allen.
