Tuscarawas Valley Pioneer Power Association


| July/August 1994

Our 30th anniversary show, held August 20-22, 1993 at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds, was blessed with three days of perfect weather and an increase in attendance. An increase in number of both gas engine exhibitors and antique tractors was also realized.

An abundance of engines was on display and running. This year the antique tractor population was in the high 200s. Not to be outdone in the steam area, we fielded 30 steam engines ranging from traction to portable and the ever popular scale steam engines. This year marked the return of the Erie steam shovel which had missed the previous year while the wood in the boom was replaced. It seems that early steam shovel booms were made of white oak with 5/16 plate bolted to the outside.

Both steam and antique tractors kept the infield abuzz with activity. At the sawmill the stack of sawed lumber was only surpassed by the height of the sawdust pile. With the Dynamometer for the tractors and the Power Eater for the steam engines, there was a constant and interesting display of power from various antique sources.

Being that it was our 30th show, it was a time to reflect on past shows and count our many blessings. Of our 48 original charter members, we still are blessed with the guiding presence of 12 of our founding fathers.

If you missed our 30th show, please allow me to invite you and your family to our 31st show, to be held at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds at Dover, Ohio, just off Interstate 77. The dates are August 19, 20, and 21, 1994.
