Art are these from the FD fund raiser? 

I will be really surprised if I even make it to 79, let alone still get to run one like that.    8) 8)

Yes these are from the fundraiser. Gordie drove for 2 1/2 hours to get here. He is coming again on the 21 for another one at the Fire Dept in the next village. He has done all the timbersports for the last 30 plus years. He did the single buck in 10x10 a few months ago. In the last 5 years he beat lung cancer, bone cancer and a 4 wheeler crash.

The 930, 630 and 490 he has are all MVP originals.

He was not feeling well today. He had trouble starting a few saws. He got the 930 running and did a 3.97 run.
Probably the last time I will get to compete with him. Asked him the best run he ever made with the 930. In 1988 he made a 4.47 cold start run.

This may be Gordies last run.

Did not know the gentleman, but it is always sad to hear of friends that have passed on.

Sorry to hear of this. That was an awesome running saw in the hands of a good operator at his age.
