Glynn and I plan to be there early Thursday and will be bringing the clutch for the 75 Holt that Ben Roth fixed also the new water tank that we had made. Lots to do so come whenever you can and we will all work to put a good hands on show and reunion. I see Montana Slim will be there, this could help as being a Chief he should be good help as he should be used to hard work and organizing things. Also if have enough help would be nice to get the heads off the 25-50 Avery as think one is cracked as is getting water in a cylinder. If that is the case we would get the heads fixed over the winter ready for next year. Rumor has it that it was run without water years ago, that could crack a head. John Tysse Jr

Here are a few pictures from this years show. The Clutch in the Holt got fixed. The heads off of the Avery to be repaired. They had two of the steam engines in operation. They did a little plowing but was very dry. It was a good show! Thank You to Charlotte and Mardell for the hospitality!

It was a long hot weekend, but very worth while. Good food and stories shared. Montana slim shared some knowledge but I tried to flush that out of the brain b4 I hit the north dakota border. Thx everyone that helped.

Luke -- thanks for the mention and thanks for coming up with the new moniker for me: Slim- the Wonder Worker or Slim - the Worker of Wonders! Even the rotund gray haired Chief agreed that it is an apt title although he has a little different take on the meaning than you do. Spread the news at Rollag and remember: Out with the old and in with the new!

we got a good number of other tractors running over the weekend.
2 twin city tractors. 3 wheeled 10-20 case. cat 60....I don't think we had that running last year. 20-35 rumely we got it to run enough to know that it will run, and then we took the carb off for a thorough overhaul of the carb and pumps. so yes we did pretty well, on top of everything that we had operating last year.

I would also like to echo the same, GREAT WEEKEND! Luke - yes cat 60 ran last year and some this year though it has problems with the crank-rod bearings. So I didn't run it very much. Worked some more bugs out of the 20-40 Case and brought some more parts home to fix over winter. Also new tractors running were Hart-Parr 16-30, Allis K crawler and Cat 20. Thank you to the Mehmke's for their hospitality and great suppers.

I too would like to thank the Mehmke's for a great weekend. I am sure that some of you also suffer from being so efficient and proficient that even the simplest things, you can make look difficult. Ooops I don't think that came out right! Remember the new moniker: Slim-the Wonder Worker!!
