|EARLY IRON FESTIVAL
|The Club ventured down to the San Luis Valley for the 27th Annual Early Iron Festival. The show is
held in a park in Alamosa Colorado. A tree lined green grass park was the setting for over 350 cars
at this show.
Gary Smith headed the caravan down on Friday for the 220 mile trip. We had 7 cars on the trip as
well as 2 other couples along for the show. Friday we had the free dinner for everyone. Then
Saturday was the show and banquet. See below for a special award that was presented to our club.

one, there wasn't a single pump that was empty.
