Scantic Valley Antique Engine Club

Somers CT

16 May 2009

This was my first visit to this show which is held at the Four Town Fair Grounds in Somers CT.  Rich Hubbard, Russ Steeves and Norm Jones had their display set up and we were happy to see them.  The weather was overcast with rain in the forecast but while we were there the rain held off and we had a nice visit.

Video clip note:  The WMV clips load much faster but the MPG clips have much greater clarity.
