at Zolfo Springs Held March 5, 6, 7, 1976

| July/August 1976

I was given the task of reporting the big 3-Day Show at Zolfo Springs, Florida but since I was there only two days and spent my evenings with my wife, Ethel, at a motel, I thought you might like to hear about the show from one who 'lived' on the grounds the entire time.

Our Flywheeler Club editor, Norma Austin, gave such a nice account of the show in our club paper I feel she has done a far better job than I could have done. So here's Norma:

Flywheeler Bob Brennan kicked the show off on Friday morning at 5:20 A.M. by starting the first engine. Shortly thereafter, WOW! Everyone got in the act.

It was a super big show, the best yet, with so many things to see and do that I am sure I missed something. The weather was great, real hot one day, but otherwise bright and cheerful.

Flea markets were extensive and interesting. A variety of food was offered for sale at popular prices, really good too, and mostly for worthy causes. Well planned in an area that somebody dubbed as 'food alley.'

The special events were interesting and very worthwhile. The Bicentennial Fashion Show displaying women's wear through the years was really great. A good deal of thought and planning went into the entire Pioneer Park event, and I feel it was a huge success.
