This year the Blue Ridge Steam and Gas Association will
celebrate its fifth year as a chartered non-profit
organization.

Our 1991 show was very successful due to enthusiastic community
support that included the Weyers Cave Volunteer Fire
Department.

In addition to the antique tractor pull and 186 gas engines, the
kiddie tractor pull proved to be a big event.

Our exhibitors and displays were up 25% over last year. There
were six other steam and gas organizations participating with our
show from as far away as Florida.

The steam engine folks again this past year did an excellent job
with their five big engines and 26 steam models.

The weather was ideal for the corn shucker/sheller, oats roller
and working exhibits. The working exhibits included: blacksmith,
grist mill, sawmill, and thrashing/baling.

We have found that a little help to unload and load up
exhibitors’ stuff gives you a good reputation.

Come give us a try June 24-27, 1992.
