| November/December 1977

Route 1, Box 122, Bunker Hill, West Virginia 25413.

The Shenandoah Valley Steam and Gas Engine Association held its seventeenth annual steam and gas show on July 29, 30 and 31, 1977 at the Clarke County Ruritan Club Grounds on Route 7, one mile west of Berryville, Virginia. The weatherman sided with us again this year bringing three beautiful sunny days. The crowds were the largest in the history of the club, as were the number of exhibitors, totaling nearly three hundred with over 400 exhibits.

The flea market areas were the largest ever expanding to around 75 booths.

The steam engine display consisted of Frick, Peerless, Russell, and Case. We had four engines with us for the first time this year a Frick owned by Sidney Ridnour of Smithsburg, Maryland; a Peerless owned by Harvey McIntyre of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania; a Case belonging to Tom Gingell of Emittsburg, Maryland; and a Peerless owned by Chris Sell of Duncansville, Pennsylvania. We'll be looking for them again next year.

Ernest Cornett's Frick portable powered the sawmill this year. The other engines took their rounds with the thresher and rock crusher.

Our tractor display consisted of Massey-Harris, Farmall, Fordson, Case, John Deere, Quincey, Waterloo Boy, Oil Pull, Oliver, International, and McCormick-Deering, along with many others.
