West Virginia Oil and Gas Festival

We were blessed with beautiful weather for the 12 th annual Show of the Niagara Antique Power Association held at Wilfred Learn's Farm at Sherksto, Ontario, Canada on Canada Day weekend June 30, July 1, and 2, 1984. Our club members are always glad to see our friends and exhibitors from other clubs in Canada and this year was no exception. The theme throughout this province of Ontario's Bicentennial was in evidence-the display this year was Gilson gasoline engines. Our plans for 1985 will 'zero in' on Gibson tractors.

A goodly number of logs plus the steamers kept the boys on the sawmill busy. Erection of a pavilion has commenced. Displays by the ladies in the log cabin and the blacksmith plying his trade in our original and restored Blacksmith Shop provided varying and interesting displays for those in attendance.

The Antique Stock Tractor pull always draws onlookers.

Registration figures showed approximately 150 gas engines, 75 tractors, four steamers, 25 Antique cars, 50 models in the model tent and numberous corn shellers, grain grinders, water pumps, drag saws, etc. All operating, also many members bring displays of early farm flea markets round out the show for those needing a bite to eat or parts for their engines or tractors.
