Photo Turnersburg Show

What a great show-- gets better every year. Ron Gooden and that bunch of good ole boys, ( Jim Case, Dale Haynes, George Niblock, Hal whose last name I don't remember, and some others that I don't remember their names) have worked hard to build the show grounds out of the wild country.

Break out the chain saws and bushogs fellas, gonna need more room next year.

Here are some pics: 1. Ernie Jones and Jo Anne, FM 3 and Myers Bull Dozer pump/water wheel on a restored RR depot cart. 2. My 2HP FM vert and 3HP IHC Famous vert. 3. FM 10HP and some kind of grinding mill, (help me out here) 4. A trailer load of IHCs

There were many very good exibits there and I would like to include all, but I only know how to post four.

Was a nice show. But it was too warm for us from the high country, was nice to drive the 60 some odd miles home to temps 13 - 15 degrees lower. Need bigger roads there, was a little hard to move around in the truck and trailer that I was driving for our friends. But a real nice turn out, and some really nice displays. And Ralph's Famous and Fairbanks look a lot better in person, pics don't do them justice. Very nice job Ralph.
