A note from the President

As I sit down to write this, the calendar says it is the first of October, where has the year gone?  The old saying “Time flies when you are having fun” must be true. We as a club have had a lot of opportunities to have fun this year!!  It has been a year full of shows, the tractor drive, and garden tractor pulls. Thanks to everyone who has helped make this 60th year of the Old Steam and Gas Club a success.

Plans are already being made for 2020 and I encourage each and every member to come to the monthly meetings with ideas of activities that you would like to see happen in the club.  We will meet in October, no meeting in November and the Christmas/Awards dinner in December. I hope you make plans to join fellow club members in the remaining activities for 2019.


A note from the Garden Tractor Pullers

The 2019 Old Steam and Gas Club Pulling season has had a total of 12 very successful pulls, with the final pull being on October 13, 2019 at Gaumer Park. Each pull has averaged between 80-100 hooks. The homecoming was another great pull for the club. Two big pulls for the year were the Guernsey County Fair and the Pataskala Antique Tractor Show, between both pulls there was 245 hooks. Throughout the season there has been several reoccurring pullers and new pullers. With the last pull approaching we have a close points race in each class. So make sure to come out and support the last pull of the year for the Old Steam and Gas Club. The club is looking forward to the 2020 pulling season
