HEAR YE, HEAR YE!!! In accordance with the mission of the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion (WMSTR) and the cause so desired by the University of Rollag associated with, but not directly tied to, the College of Steam Traction Engineering in conjunction with the Long Range Planning Committee, the Education Subcommittee of the WMSTR Board of Directors announces the formation of the Rollag Institute of Past Technology, aka, RIPT, majoring in “Rollagology” (the study of all things Rollag)!!
What in the world does that mean??

On a first come first served basis 45 students will be able to attend, three, four-hour classes in areas related to WMSTR.
