SO, YOU WANT TO MOVE A STEAM & GAS ENGINE SHOW? THE RIGHT CLUB CAN MAKE IT LOOK EASY!

New show grounds, new traditions. When you leave a show site where club members exhibited for over 30 years, things change. Members who always had their favorite spaces are going to have to break the habit and start at square one.

Just a little strange? What if the people near me are strangers? How will people find where I'm set up? When will the show site be ready? Can I reserve a space in the shade ?

Do not worry, we have 40 acres of shade! I'm not sure about finding your friends' exhibits--I guess we will all have to look around until we find each other.



When all the club's property has to move to a new home, teamwork takes on a special meaning. Moving old engines, old iron, old memories. At one point, most members doing the moving did agree that stamp collectors have an advantage. You will not find a stamp collector using a tandem trailer to haul one piece of the collection. I had no idea that the club owned a half ton of rusty pipe fittings, boxes of valve packing, and an unbelievable assortment of unusable, unsorted hardware.

Working as a club to build buildings is another education. We have members of all skill levels. We have machinists who work to the smallest measurements. We also have members who build fence gates that are not quite square! So when the levels of skill merge to build buildings the comments are sometimes very enlightening and colorful. One man with a Skil saw, the next with a chain saw, one with a 16 ounce carpenter hammer, and the man beside him with a sledge, you get the picture.
