Sam: Bunkers look good, but I'm waiting for first person to ask you about the 2 injector plumbing & valve cluster.

Paging Mike McKnight.......per Harold Stark, he is getting the little Gaar out next week and you are supposed to bring your banjo to entertain at the SmokStak dinner on Saturday night....

Mike,

I was just passing the message along....you'll have to deal with Harold (actually Joan sent the message for him-perhaps YOUR wife needs to talk to HIS wife)

We'll miss you, but I'm sure other characters will step up for the amusement factor.....

Lots of Gaar interest, but still waiting on commitments.

Beth

Yes my 40 Gaar Scott will be headed to Ohio next month. Planning to arrive on or before Wednesday June 22. The Big 40 crew is looking forward to show. My wife Eileen is planning to bring her 1/3 scale Gaar Scott and Lawrence will be bringing his half size Gaar Scott as well.

Jerred,

Thank you for the confirmation of the 40 and the 2 scale engines. We've talked about how interesting it will be to have the largest remaining traction and portable Gaar Scotts as well as the smallest and potentially oldest traction and portables in the same spot! Perhaps the 40 can pull the smallest portable and the 10 hp Gaar can pull the 150 portable through the parade? Great photo event! ...Brenda????

...and then we have all of the "in between" Gaars and at least 3 Gaar scale engines.

Beth

Glad to hear the big 40 is coming. What is the latest on the Tiger Pull from Western Minnesota Steam Threshers? Is it coming?

Brad,

You'll have to check with Mark Pederson. He indicated that the Tiger Pull wasn't reliable enough to bring. The 60-90 was well tuned.

That's too bad. It would have been nice to have brought those two giants together.

Will the Tigers allow a Banner Boy to park next to them??? Or will he stick with the Advance Rumely crowd???

Beth,

It's your show...your rules! Personally, I'd love to have that engine parked next to us. Regardless where Dan's engine is parked, I'm sure it will be drawing a good size crowd...and it should...nice job Dan!
