The show was originally held at the home of Graydon Gaudy, but in the last couple of years, the show has become so popular that it outgrew that location and it was moved to the County Fairgrounds.

The purpose of this club is to promote, preserve, and maintain early examples of gas engines, tractors and miscellaneous related farm and mining equipment of ancient age and historical value, as well as models, devices, toys, or other unusual equipment, and to serve as an accurate and technical source of information concerning such items for the benefit of the members and the general public.

The club president is Jim Mager and the show chairman is Gene DeCamp.

The Cottonwood, Arizona show, put on by the Arizona Flywheelers, has a reputation throughout the west as being a nice event. This year (2001), in conjunction with their Sixteenth Annual Show, the Flywheelers will be host to the First Southwest Regional Hot Air Engine Meet. The hot air section is being organized by Buster Brown and Lowell Wagner.

These boys have been hard at work lining up exhibitors and at this time are saying that this will probably be the largest gathering of hot air engines that the world has ever seen. There will be exhibitors from all over the U.S. and from the U.K. It's also been rumored that there might be some engines from one or two impressive collections for sale.

Contacts are Buster Brown (520) 376-6823 and Lowell Wagner (505) 281-1624. Buster has set up a web page for more info:
