1982 STUMPTOWN STEAM THRESHERS SHOW REPORT


| May/June 1983


Secretary Rte. 2, Box 332, Adena, Ohio 43901

The good Lord again smiled on the Stumptown Gang! Beautiful weather prevailed both days for our 20th annual reunion. A large crowd was on hand for both days.

Saturday morning got off to a good start at 9:00 a.m. with prayer led by one of our members, Lester Nabb, followed by sawing, threshing, shingle making, corn meal grinding, etc. The steam table was full of small steam engines and models. Ray Covault and Gary Arnold showed their 1/4-scale engines and equipment. Gas Engine Alley featured around 300 gas engines doing their 'thing'. Several antique cars and trucks arrived to bolster our show.

The tractor count was 57 tractors, with the 'Green Line' being the most numerous. This year we were fortunate to have two model railroads, a 15-gauge Cli-Shay locomotive on its own track and a 15-gauge Cagney running on an oval track taking children for a steam ride.

At noon, all the whistles signalled that it was time to eat at our two eating stands where corn bread and beans were a favorite.

The antique and 1/2-scale model slow engine race began at 1:00 p.m. Joe Harrison won again on his grandfather's 20 HP Russell in the antique division and Bill Arnold won in the 1/2-scale class. The block race followed with Earl Hamilton taking the 1/2-scale class and Glenn Krofft winning the antique class.
