| December/January 1989

As we write this letter, fall is in full swing and beautiful foliage is everywhere to be seen and enjoyed. Our Directory mailing has gone out for the 1990 edition, and we're already getting a good response. Remember that December 15 is the deadline, and don't let your show lose out on the free listing opportunity which comes only once a year!

And speaking of missed opportunities, don't lose out on advertising by sending your ads in late! Our deadline is the 7th of every month, and it is wise to get your ads in before that day, since the traveling time in the mail is not always as prompt as you may expect.

We are hard at work on our new book on garden tractors written by Dave Baas, and hope to see it out in a couple of months. And for those of you interested in joining the new edition of our Collectors' Network, see the ad in this issue-deadline there is February 15.

This is the last issue of the first 24 years of G.E.M., the brainchild of the late Elmer Ritzman. We are constantly trying to improve G.E.M., and to see that our readers get what they want, so don't hesitate to let us know how we're doing. Next month we'll begin a regular column from Jack Versteeg, president of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, which we hope you'll enjoy.

We wish all of our subscribers and advertisers, friends and competitors, a joyful holiday season and a bright new year!
