    Let's try this a second time.... NO MORE RAIN NEEDED!!:cool:...


    On Saturday - August 3rd, 2019 @ 8:00 am there will be a woodcutting & splitting day for the upcoming expo. It will also be general grounds clean up for people that may not be able to split or cut wood.

    If you need hours to be active this year, this is for you!

    With the amount of wood that will be consumed during the show by not only steam engines but also campfires, we need to cut and split all we can BEFORE the show so that during the show it is not as dire as it was in past record breaking years.

    Anyone that can bring chainsaws,wood splitters' and trailers and/or skid steers to haul/load wood is asked to please bring them. This is also a great time to rake leaves and clean up sticks from all over showgrounds... so maybe rakes and wheelbarrows? A few weeks ago some members started cutting the dead ( and board approved and marked trees) down behind the Admin and over by the miniatures so wood is stacked neatly but needs to get moved down to Steamer Row to get split to dry... leaves needs to be picked up and branches hauled to be burned. Lot's to do before show yet!

    Work day will start at 8 am and go ALL day or until the work is done.... ( and that IS possible if we have ample help). For all members working - a light meal at noon will be provided for a free will donation - all funds going to the SOS ( Save Our Steamers ) fund. If you would like to bring a dish to add to the meal - you sure can!

    Many hands and able bodies make for light work!

    Hope to see lots of you on August 3rd!
