The lure of steam gets big attention in this South Dakota 1979 Calendar of Events, as you can see in upper right corner.
Both steam and gas are featured in the listings, with a show at DeSmet and a threshing bee at Sturgis. No doubt the engines are highly visible at many other events playing up farm and pioneer spirit.
Rallies, meets, shows and thresherees are getting more and more notice as their numbers increase and the crowds get bigger. We are trying to publicize these events nationally, through our annual Steam and Gas Show Directory, as well as through IRON-MEN ALBUM and GAS ENGINE MAGAZINE.
