Third Annual Dublin Gas Engine Meet

| January/February 1975

Hancock, New Hampshire 03449

The weatherman tried to scare us this year with very miserable weather the day before our meet, but on Sept. 29, the rains held off for most of the day. This dampness didn't stop too many people from coming. We had people from all over New England, many of the familiar faces who helped us get started two years ago. There were about 115 engines displayed by 65 exhibitors. Many of these engines had never been to Dublin before, although their owners had.

There were 25 antique autos at the meet, the oldest being a 1903 Model A Ford owned by Mike Worcester, who also had many engines on display and is one of the organizers of the meet.

Due to our growth, we will have to move to a larger field next year. This will allow more room for each exhibitor- thus giving more safety. It is hoped that we can have some more tractors next year. There was just one, a 1938 English Fordson. We also hope that the steam group will feel welcome even though we call it a gas engine meet.

Again this year, the Dublin Fire Department provided a delicious bean-hole bean dinner.

Gas engine meets are quite popular in this area. Dave Dearborn of Campton, N. H., has been hosting a spring meet that has been growing by leaps and bounds.
