Back in April 2022, the 7th Cornfield Free-Mo Meet was held in McLean, IL. Organized loosely by Tom Ludlam, these meets happen in the gym of a local school. I’d heard of them happening, which they generally do in the spring and fall, but this was my first visit. UPDATE: The fall 2022 Cornfield Free-Mo meet will be October 7th to 9th. I brought back a bunch of pics of the April meet and meant to post these some time back, then our cat died and it took some catching up to get back around to this. Enjoy!
Like many social functions, there has been some uncertainty due to the pandemic, but the Cornfield Free-Mo meet will most like happen next this fall in late September/early October. For further info, check in with the Facebook group or contact Tom at McLean Depot:
Ernie Noa traveled a little further west to meet up with a number of other Midwest Live Steamers at his friend Al’s place recently. Ernie passed along a couple of Youtube videos to share with everyone.
The first is composed of various still images and available at:
Here’s video featuring lots of cool pacing shots by Ernie:
