The Pioneers club of Indiana Inc. held their annual three day show August 5-6-7 1966 on the grounds of the Rush County conservation Club.

To say it was a good show would be saying it mildly. It was much better than we had for many years. Our equipment was in better condition, the engines were in first class shape, all repaired and a bright paint job. Separators, gas engines, gas tractors were all in good condition in all respects.

Our weather was perfect, no rain to spoil the show. Our attendance was very good. We had visitors from far away states, and also quite a few from foreign countries.

The smallest traction engine shown this year was a six horsepower Russell, and the largest was a 22 H. P. Peerless double cylinder, so there was quite a contrast.

Quite a few separators were on the grounds all ready to go.
