The 1st Annual Carolina Crank-Up was held September 24-25-26 at Frontier Village, Blowing Rock, North Carolina.



Although rain plagued all three days of our show we still had a good turn out. Plans are now being made for the 2nd Annual Carolina Crank-Up, to be held September 1-2-3-4 1972.

Between rains nine acres of wheat were threshed. The McCormick Deering separator was powered by a 20 H. P. Advance Rumely and fired by Bob Powell of N. C. The straw was baled, with the help of Raymond Corothers of Tenn., by a hand tie Ann Arbor Baler. Power for the baler was supplied with a 10 H. P. Frick, Bobby Miller of N. C. at the throttle.
