Default High Country Crank-Up

We want to THANK everyone that came out to support our club at the show. It was a little wet on Friday, but Saturday was real nice untill late in the evening. The show grounds were the best we have had in a long time. The turn out was a little low, but we think that was because of the weather and the price of gas. We will be adding the show pictures to the website sometime soon. There were some real nice engines there. THANK YOU to all the exhibitors and spectators!

We had a GREAT time. Was a very nice loaction. Hope it is there again next year and would like at least one more day. There were some really nice exhibits. Was nice to see and talk to Ralph Leonard. Hope you got the carb figured out. By the way, very nice Fairbanks. The turn out was a little low this year, but the bottom of the mountain got rain and I guess people didn't want to take a chance on it being rained out at the show. Hope that everyone there had a good time and enjoyed themselves as much as we did. We only bought one engine there and it was just a small Briggs, but got a new toy on Sunday. Will post a pic of it later.

I didn't think the weather was all that bad. Sure, we ducked under awnings a couple times Friday, but it was so nice to get out of the low land 100+ heat and humidity. Didn't hear any complaints.

The no shows missed a good one. Lots of nice engines there as well as working displays. And that location is awesome, plenty of room, lots of grass, no leveling blocks needed, did I say lots of grass

Mike Murphy broke out his Briggs parts book and showed me what I needed to do to modify my Z carb Very helpful.

Sure hope you folks can get that site for future shows.

BTW, the yellow sign for camper parking? Put it in the dumpster. Works well on the drawing board but not in that big open field

Here is our "new" toy. It is a 1969 John Deere 140 H1 "Patio" tractor. It needs work, but it is a Patio tractor.
