Default Benner's Fall Flywheel get together..

Travis and Terri had another wonderful show this last weekend. The weather didn't cooperate, with strong winds and occasional sprinkles, but that didn't seem to dampen people's spirits. Once again, wonderful food, curteous people and awesome engines were plentiful. Thanks!

I was there with the trailer that had the galloway on it. What engines did you bring bob? It would have been nice to put faces with the people on here. I had a very good time and would like to thank travis and terri and who ever brought all the awesome food. Looking foward to the next show.

Thanks to all who came and braved the weather. It was great to share with friends in the food and some fine engines. Hopefully we can find some pics of the people reclining in the old shop next to the wood stoves.

Thanks Justin and Kristy for the yummy ice-cream, which still tastes wonderful on a cold day. Thanks to Lloyd for the warm popcorn, and thanks also to those who travelled from near and so far to make the day so great.

We do this because of our love of engines and because we enjoy the fine fellowship. Counting down until Bill's show next spring!
