On September 19-20, 1992 the LaGrange Engine Club had its annual show at a new location, Lorain County Fairgrounds, Wellington, Ohio. Everyone enjoyed having so much more space to display in.

Saturday morning started out very wet, as most shows did in 1992, but by noon things were drying out, and many units were moving about the grounds. By 2 P.M. the demonstrations were in full swing, which included threshing wheat with a 16 HP Minneapolis traction and a Case separator. Straw was baled with an Ohio baler powered by a John Deere GP tractor. The saw mill was in operation both days sawing basswood and oak for lumber to build a barn. Various steamers were belted to the sawmill, and at times two Bakers were hooked in tandem on the mill. After minor governor adjustments, the two units barked out in unison.

Gas engine row was larger than ever; there were lots of different makes displayed, and most were running. On Sunday afternoon an exhibitors' antique tractor pull was run, and as everyone seemed to enjoy it, it will be an annual event at our show. Also on Sunday P.M. a machinery parade was held. The spectators enjoyed it very much.

Many thanks to all who displayed equipment, and to vendors and spectators who attended. Hope to see you all September 18 and 19, 1993 at Lorain County Fairgrounds for a bigger and better LaGrange Engine Club Show.
