| January/February 1976

Reaveley Road, Hancock, New Hampshire 03449

On September 21, 1975, engine and tractor collectors from all over the northeastern United States converged on Dublin, N.H. We were very pleased to see friends from the Schoharie, N.Y. and Kinzers, Pa. meets come to participate.

There were approximately 300 engines and 3 tractors. One man combined work with pleasure. He brought an old wood splitter and a pickup truck loaded with wood which he split and then loaded back onto the pickup and took on home. We also had an operating cider mill with freshly pressed cider for sale. Many people were demonstrating items such as water rams, early garden tractors, and lawn mowers. On display also was a very nice model steam railroad engine and tender.

There were about 50 antique autos including a beautiful 1901 Lane Steamer, the owner of which was busy giving rides.

Once again the Dublin Fire Department provided a very good ham and bean dinner and the Ladies Auxiliary sold soft drinks and cotton candy, the profits of which go to the fire department for new equipment. We still charge NO admission or exhibitors fee but we do sell souvenir buttons to cover costs. This year the local Jaycees raffled off a restored gas engine which was won by a local man just getting into the gas engine hobby.

This was the first year that the Dublin meet was sponsored by the Granite State Gas and Steam Engine Assoc., Inc. which was organized in the spring. The club held its first meet in June at Dave Dearborn's home in West Camp-ton, N. H. His meet is also growing fast. If all goes well, the Dublin, N. H. meet will be a 2 day meet in 1976. The date will be September 18 and 19, 1976. The general public's acceptance of the gas and steam engine meets in New Hampshire is overwhelming.
