Ob ject of the field meet was to show the boys the art of competition ridin g, particularly as a family affair. Among the riders displaying their skill were such top desert men as Mike Patrick, Lee Stumpenhaus, Bob McLaughlin and Gene Smith . Th e boys were thrilled by the morning's show which included a drag event, spin and ride and a wheeli e contest. And the fun continued after lun ch with a motocross and a relay. Th e clubs also took up a donation of one dollar per rider, and pre sented th is to Mr. Bromwich , the Director of the Ranch, for use in their Med ical Fund. Th e happy atmosphere was. made even more pleasant when the Ranch doled out an excellent dinner for the visitors, and the boys handed over their own handmade trophy to the winner of the Wh eelie battIe. Delighted recip ient of this was Steve Howland. No doubt about it, he won it the hard way!
