Default Thanks from the Coolspring Power Museum

On behalf of the Coolspring Power Museum Board, thanks to all who participated, brought exhibits, toured the museum or took part in any of the other activities during the summer show.

There were some fantastic oil engines there and they sang some sweet music with their good rhythm.

A special thanks go to the volunteers that make it happen. The Snow project, those that have done such a tremendous amount of work on projects and efforts of the past and those that will be putting forth effort in the future....THANKS! You make the CPM great!

The talk on Oil Engines by Prof. Michael Murphy was great on Friday evening. For those that have not attended one of the Friday evening lectures, you should make an attempt to do it in the future. Great info learned and shared.

Visit the CPM website to keep up on happenings. Some great events and features are coming up in the future.

I echo the thanks to all the volunteers and participants involved! The engines at Coolspring are fantastic, but it's the people that make it a truly great show. Everywhere you look, there are volunteers running engines, willing to talk and explain things, helping people load/unload/transfer items in the field, etc, etc. And I enjoyed visiting with collectors from California to Minnesota to Florida to Canada and New England. I can't tell you how many offered a seat, or a drink, and even some very delicious food. Thanks again and I'm already looking forward to the next show!

There is not enough words to tell how great this show is, the engines are out of this world, but not for all of the super guys. and gals working together to restore and run these engineering marvels it would not happen. Thanks to all of you that make this happen. Greg, one of the Fla. gang

I brought my twin brother to Coolsprings. He is from NJ and is an instructor for marine diesel engines. He said "I'll come with you but I don't really need another day with engines."

His parting words were " when is the next Coolspring's show"

Thank you to all that worked so hard.

I would also like to personally thank all of the volunteers both on and off site and especially the founders of the Coolspring Power Museum for the foresight to produce such a place and an event. I've been going for over 15 years and can say that there's no other place like it on this continent! See you in October!

I am gratefull I was not run off property for stinking out the annex!!! The one thing I always like about CPM is the constant improvement and care and detail taken on projects. The amount of work to do these things is mind blowing.

I was absolutely amazed! This was my first trip and it was better than I imagined. I took my Brantford Hvid to run but was so busy looking at other peoples engines I didn't get to play with it much. I left it in the capable hands of Kyle K and so many people got to see it run. Still can't believe we got to run the Hvids in the building.
My thanks go to all the CPM members and volunteers who put on a fantastic show and rolled out the red carpet for us.

Thanks again,
Dwayne

Our first trip there and you guys do a great job! It's not hard to figure out why your show has become THE show. We will dig back in the shed and find another oil burner to bring next year.

We could not make it for the show but I had the opportunity to get a personal tour of the collection from Paul Harvey last Saturday. It was an amazing experience! The engines there are great but my favorite part was hearing Paul’s stories about many of the engines, how they were found and were they were found. Many of them have the history with them which is simply amazing... Thanks to Paul and all involved a CPM. I will defiantly be visiting again.

I had that feeling! We've certainly had more than enough rain here in WI, too. It's the third wettest year on record. Coolspring will be in our thoughts.

you would be standing in water where you had you engines running at the show. just started into that building. about 4" to 6" in the municipal building. some of the buildings in the lower field got more. stewart had 2 of his smaller engines under. most of the bigger engines are doing fine. I don't know about Aarons buildings south of the road up the hill to the snow engine.
