Rain and rainbows come natural to the Oklahoma Steam Threshers and Gas Engine Show. The 1997 Reunion was held over the weekend of May 2, 3, and 4, at Pawnee, Oklahoma. The slightly muddy show grounds were hardly noticed during the opening ceremonies on Friday.

With no time to waste, the Reunion activities soon began. Traction engines, gas tractors and threshers all were part of the weekend parade of power. Amos Rixmann ran the prony brake almost non-stop. A fine threshing display was held with blacksmithing, saw milling, shingle mill, a farm toy show, corn grinding and more.

All this was second to many of the local friends that help put on the weekend events: Dana Hicks, president of the club, John and Dot Fry, Shane Fry, Chady Atteberry and his two daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Larson, Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan, Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, L. Woods, Mr. and Mrs. Cletus Beurs, Henry and Paul Martens, just to name a few.



All were pleased with the weather and equipment at the show this year, though many will soon forget. In forty-two years the weather may not have always been the best; friends still came to hear those old stories.
