Frostbite Crank Up

11 December

Northboro, MA

Slide Show HERE and video HERE

Another year winds to a close with the pancake breakfast at the East Boyleston Fire House and the Frost Bite Crank Up.  And a fine year it has been!  I visited many fine shows and took lots of photos and videos.  Had lots of good fellowship with friends and members of the model/antique engine fraternity and learned many new things along the way.

After an absence of one year the Frostbite Crank Up resumed at a new location just a few miles from its' old place with renewed vigor and interest.
