This show opened with a pledge of allegiance to our flag as it was being raised.

Although we sometimes attend several shows in a season this was the first time we arrived on 'set up day' and we found this day to be almost as interesting as the other days of this show near Springfield, Missouri.

Much effort goes into administering a successful reunion. The president, Mr. Charley Stark and all others were busy assisting new arrivals get situated and unloaded. Charley, I'm sure was tired physically and mentally when night came; but he always made the final rounds to see that all was well with everyone.

In our case, my wife, Wanda, had driven our camper almost 700 miles which attests to the fact that she also expected a good time and was not disappointed.

Wanda and I were busy showing our own model 'hit and miss' gas engines and taking the pictures which are included as part of this article.
