Default Zolfo Springs Show 2015

Who will be at the Zolfo show this year? I've got my Hercules log saw here in FL, and Billy tells me that he has logs waiting! Who else will be there? How about Stacker pictures at noon on both Friday and Saturday at EX 6? Sure hope to see lots of you guys-- and how about you, Harry? Haven't seen you and that young woman you live with for some time now!

Dave:

Up to three weeks ago, I was planning on going. Then, I got a finger too close to a sideshaft gear and snatched the tip off of it.

That may not have been the killer but the Docs are whispering sweet atrial stenoses and mitral valve prolapses in my ear and I have medical "Social Occasions" to attend that week so they can figure out what to do, if anything.

Because of that, I must place the entire burden of keeping the show orderly firmly upon your shoulders.

Try not to disappoint us and say Hello for me to anybody who gives a damn.

Hi

I will not be able to attend Fly wheelers or Zolfo this year because I will be busy at the Live Steam event in Ellenton and Dundee Florida.

However my partner is supposed to attend both of them with the Jones Sucked rod and possibly the Bessemer engines.

Hi Dave,
I would love to go but due to cercumstances beyond my control and goofy bastards that run the show, I won't be able to attend. Didn't loose anything there therefore won't need to find anything. If you will, give em my regards.
Thanks, Chuck

One of my favorite shows every winter, but it doesn't look like I'll make it this year. Still in Central New York with lots of snow and very cold weather. My better half had hip surgery so I'm the "chief cook and bottle washer" till she recovers. Hopefully next year. Have a good show.

I had loaded up my trailer to go to the Florida Flywheelers show , but as soon as my Significant other seen the weather Forecast with overnight lows in the thirties , she decided That freezing her butt off would not be a enjoyable way to spend The week. Maybe I can talk her into the Zolfo show this year. It is a little closer to home anyway.

I think that Friday would be the best day if you can only spend one day. The flea market has LOTS of everything, including Chinese crap, garage clean out, and ENGINE PARTS. If you need a place to sit I'm in EX 6. I'm near the registration building and the FLUSH toilets! Pepsi (and some say adult beverages) in my cooler(but you need to tell me you are a Stacker)!

"I'll be there. Haven't decided if I will show or just go to visit??"

If you just don't set up Fred, consider my place at EX6 your "home away from home"! Chairs and Pepsi/other are "on the house", as is the canopy in case of rain and/or sun.
The Hercules log saw (1923) started and ran well yesterday (Sun.). Billy had a very nice log for me and the saw cut it well! Billy "delivered" Lou's log about 3:30, but I did not wait around long enough to know if he took the first cut. I think John Crowfoot has arrived by now.
I should get back to the show by 9:30 on Wed. Hope to see a lot of STACKERS there this week!

I will be there Friday and maybe Saturday . I usually go to the Flywheelers show but could not make it last week.
I have never been to Zolfo before so did not know what to expect. It sounds like a good show, I am looking forward to it.
