The Stumptown Steam Threshers annual show, September 8-9, 1990, wasn't blessed with perfect weather this year. The show started with prayer by Lester Nabb and the raising of 'Old Glory' by the Cadiz Boy Scouts, followed by the usual activity of sawing, shingle making, threshing, cornmeal grinding, and the popping of many gas engines.

Ralph Jones was chosen Thresherman and Rose Chini was crowned Queen.

In the slow engine race, antique class, it was close. Dennis Hudock on Glenn Krofft's 40 HP Case was the winner. In the scale model class, Russ Dye won on the Arnold family's Goat engine. In the garden tractor class, only one contestant registered, so Glenn Krofft raced Dennis Jackowski with his three-wheeler. Dennis was the winner.

Winners in the kiddie tractor pull were as follows: Class I- Novella Trushell, first, Tiffany Rowles, second; Class II - Kristen Conrad, first, Dustin Dowell, second; Class III-Matthew Modra, first, Tim Conrad, second; Class IV- Mike Martin, first, Jimmy Bethel, second; Class V-Samantha Quick, first, Brad Sell, second.

We had 10 contestants in the fiddling contest. Winners, 60 and older class, were: first place, Jim Addy, Woodsfield; second place, Bill Burris, Shippingport, Pa.; third place, Clifford Hardesty, West Lafayette, Oh. Winners in the under 60 class were: first place, Larry Stahl, Bakersfield; second place, Carrie Dillon, Woodsfield; third place, Clarence Miller, Brilliant. After the contest, fiddlers and accompanists played the Round Robin.
