The sun was bright and clear all three days for our 16th annual show. And what a great show we had, thanks to all the exhibitors, flea market people, and all the visitors. Thanks, and hope you come again to our next show.

The fairgrounds were filled by noon Saturday. We had 102 tractors, 246 gas engines, five steam engines of various sizes, 36 antique cars and trucks, and a nice display of restored Cushman motor scooters. The name Cushman is well known in gas engine land, as they make a lot of gas engines used on sprayers, cement mixers, and a lot of other machinery, including grain binders.

We had a pedal tractor pull again this year, and 75 children pedaled their little hearts out to try and win a prize. We give all the children a prize, not just the ones who win. We held a Sunday morning church service, and would like to thank Pastor Dave Burkeet.

We, the club's members, would like to thank our president, Brian Oldenburg, and all the officers for the fine job they did again this year. They spend many, many hours putting the show, together. Thanks also to our ladies' auxiliary for all the time they put into taking care of the flea market people and all the help they gave to the club this past year.

I don't like to start naming names of exhibitors, but there are some who bring displays that we need to thank for helping our show. So I will stick my neck out now and name a few: Brian Oldenburg, Saginaw, Michigan for bringing his Puffer Maker fan; David Babcock, Cass City, Michigan for bringing his 12 HP Economy engine, and his Ann Arbor stationary baler to bale the wheat straw. The wheat was threshed with the club's 28' grain separator, a Red River Special. Mic Deering and Jim Albrecht used their 30 x 50 Oil Pull to run the separator, and we also used some other tractors on the grain separator.
