Puget Sound Antique Tractor & Machinery Assoc.

| March/April 1974

1388 Pangborn, Lynden, Washington 98264

The Second Annual Threshing Bee of the Puget Sound Antique Tractor & Machinery Assoc. went over real big. Our little town of Lynden, WA was buzzing with excitement last August 24th & 25th.

Most of the Machinery was hauled in on Thursday night so that made it pretty late before everything was in.

We had 4 steam traction engines there including the miniature of Bill Moldenhauer. Howard Blankenforth had his little Advance all steamed up for the 2 day show. Bill also had his Aultman Taylor there and ran the clubs McCormick-Deering Threshing Machine both days. A real surprise was when Bob Sorenson pulled in the field with his Rumley Steamer. It was Bob's 89th Birthday that Saturday and he drove around the field proud as a peacock. We had a party that afternoon for him.

There were 6 threshing machines at the show but we only used 4 of them. There were 2 McCormick-Deering's, 2 Wood Bros., 1 John Deere, and 1 Minneapolis.

We had about 30 acres of oats to thresh but the weather was dry and we had no trouble running it all through in the 2 days.
