    This display was a great addition to the show. The painters (Klaviks, I think) did an excellent job! I heard several guest comment on how well the person at the exhibit explained boiler operation and how their understanding of boiler operations improved.

    Hats off to a group that did an excellent job!

    I agree with Jerry, Bob. The entire display is a great addition. Great place for it too! Lots of people go by there!

    Is it possible to get a copy of the elevations at Rollog , we have had several discussions on this subject over the campfire and this would end some of the arguments

    There is likely to be some drainage work done by Kyle W this next season. I think he has access to all of that kind of information through his business for all over Clay county. Perhaps if he sees this thread, or someone points him to it, he could post a map.
