On August 7th and 8th, 1976, the Scott Carver Old Thresher's Association held their threshing show and steam festival at Jordon, Minnesota. Fair weather prevailed this year with no sign of rain to bother activity, or to keep people from coming. In fact, most shows in Minnesota this year were held during what has been stated as the worst drought in the history of the state. It began in early April and lasted throughout the growing season.

I saw the show on Saturday, but Sunday is always the biggest day at all of the shows as more people attend. However, Saturday's crowd was average, and activity was very progressive.

Willard Bill Olander's 22 HP Advance engine and his 32 x 54 Case separator with wing feeder were in operation. Jim Molenhauer was the engineer and Bill Sobiech was the separator man.

Ermin Morrell's 16 HP Advance engine operated by Florian C. Karl was belted to a Gopher thresher, doing perfect work threshing oats.
