We had great weather for our show and had a big crowd. We ended up with 11 steam engines and a big host of antique tractors. There was something going on all the time. I want to thank all that attended.

Hey Larry,

What engines came out to play? I would have considered it, but was already committed to Wellington.

Craig is correct, if it had been on the calendar, the attendance could have been boosted. Make sure to get the dates submitted for 2009!

HBurk,

Come on up to "Yankee" country.....to quote a good friend from the Pasture Party..."We'll take good care of you!"
