Due to the rain, we did not get HQ setup Friday afternoon, but was able to mark our spot, that is the same as the last 5+ Years.
We have the T-shirts in our possession and will be sorting and giving them out today.

Friday night at the Alderson's was a great time and we had probably the biggest turnout ever.
It was probably because it was a Friday evening instead of on Thursday.
We had several first timers there and of course Wayne gave a tour of their collection after a great meal.
Vicki's cookies were a big hit, over three dozen were devoured.

As an added highlight for the Aldersons, Bill Aldersons high school track coach showed up (83 years young) and talked to Patty and Wayne a lot about Bill and his brothers.
And as an added surprize, there were a couple young Alderson girls that intern in the assisted living facility that the Coach lives in, that also knew him.

I got a lot of pictures and it will be next week before I can load them up somewhere. Forgot the camera cable at home.

Had a couple cold ones with Rusty Rod, back at the hotel and got back to the room about 11 pm.

We would like to hear other thoughts of the Alderson open house.
So post up!

Due to me having too many irons in the fire, I was only able to attend for the day, but what a great time I had!

Don and Vicky, Mike and Pat and Jeff did a fantastic job making sure that all was under control at the Stovebolt booth. After the photo shoot, the annual meeting and giveaway went smooth as silk. It was a pleasure chatting with the usual bunch and meeting some new members for the very first time. Overall, attendance was down most likely due to the predicted wet weather, but it actually turned out to be a pretty nice day. It started out overcast and a little drizzly, but it didn't last long and wasn't enough to get you wet. By mid afternoon the sun was shining down on all of the vintage iron that was on display.

Special thanks to Mongo and crew for running a top notch event and like always we (us Stovebolters) were treated like royalty. Gaylene stopped by to thank us for attending and also announced that next year will be their 20th year hosting the show. It would be really cool if next year we could help them break their all time attendance record (weather permitting of course).

6:15 am Sunday and the hotel fire alarm goes off.
False alarm.
Got to look at a late model pumper and thank the Fire fighters.
They looked like it got them out of bed also

Think I'll go back to bed.

It was great to see all the gang again yesterday. The weather cooperated and the turnout was good in spite of the recent rains. A special thanks to Pat & Mike and John &Theresa. and Don & Vickie. Don is now a veteran ring-leader and we could hear his wheels turning for next year already. Thanks to John and Peggy for being there in spirit.
