SHOW & REUNION REPORTS

SHOW REPORT


| September/October 1973


R.D. 1, Claysville, PENNSYLVANIA 15323.

The 16th Annual Reunion of the Tri-State Historical Steam Engine Association was held on September 22 and 23, 1972 at the Hookstown Grange Fair Grounds in Hookstown, Pennsylvania.

The reunion was once again a huge success. The weather was good and the equipment and spectators were there in abundance. Well over 4000 people were present to watch the activities during the two day reunion. Although many of the people in attendance were from Pennsylvania and nearby Ohio, some came from as far away as Illinois.

The daily activities at the reunion included threshing, baling, sawing, feed grinding, shingle making, clover hulling and a professional wood chopping demonstration. Evening activities included a garden tractor pull under the nippy September sky and a large indoor square dance.



Equipment in operation at the reunion included nearly 100 gas engines ranging in size from small models to a large combination gas or steam engine from an oil well. Steam equipment included nearly 20 traction engines, a steam electric plant, a Keystone steam driller and many small but beautifully made steam models.

Also in operation was a 110 HP Case engine. In addition, there were about a dozen gas tractors ranging in size from a Farmall F-12 to a Cat 60 and a 20-40 HP Oil Pull. Other equipment present included several antique cars and trucks, a dog-powered churn and many implements and items from back on the farm. All of the tractors and engines were in operation and participated in the two daily parades.
