The dude in the green shirt just revealed a truth so powerful that the 2 scratchers were overwhelmed with the awesomeness of the truth... Actually... dude in green shirt was having issues from some beans from the day before and the scratchers were trying not to tear theyre noses off... 😐😐

Craig, the guy scratching his chin in the last picture is me, I was contemplating which fan I would try and trade one of my fans I brought along to the meet for.

George, The guy in the green tee ate beans when he KNEW he would be surrounded by innocent people at Fandango the next day?????????? Hopefully, they all recovered without long term injury ........ probably only possible because the bean bomb was dropped outside!

Hi Graig!

Eating massive amounts of beans the day before a fan event is a strategy... As the cars and trucks full of fans pull in a well placed bean stealth bisquit will thin out the pretenders and leave it up to the pro's... Nothing will intimidate the pro's though... So it will be all out war after that...

Chris Harding, the window fan loves it's new home. I now need to build a stand to be able to use it as a floor fan out on the patio. It's going to get alot of use just so I can hear those torrington blades singing. lol  Was great see you and the whole midwest gang at Mike's. When a guy walks into the garage on that Friday night with 20 fans blowing in all directions ( Thanks for that Larry ) you know your in fan country. Fandango has grown so much, and an event I plan on every year. Thanks to the Mirins for doing this event. They showed me how really strong a couple, family, can be. I heard Mike already talking about next year. LOL  Mike, we need to get some shirts made up for next year??

Those later Poweraires are underrated fans. Very powerful.

I agree, And with me being the proud owner of a 1948 vintage 16PA2 PowerAire fan I know for a fact those later PowerAires mean business and are also nice and quiet at the same time, not very often you come across a fan that has both great power and is not too noisy at the same time, you either have lots of power and lots of noise, or little power little noise, but Westinghouse got the right comination with their PowerAire Fans just enough power to move lots of air, but at the same time without all of the noise that comes with a super powerful fan (referring to wind noise and motor noise).
