2021 Sandwich Engine Show Update

Thanks to everyone that attended our 50th annual club show. The weather was a bit challenging at times, except for Larry’s ducks. But all in all we had a real nice two day show with over 140 engines mainly Sandwich engines and many tractors on display to look at. There was a working Sandwich hay press bailing hay, that was from South Dakota, very nice job by Dave T. We had our two hole corn sheller running by a nice 6hp sandwich engine. More to come soon.
