Well, Cubfest has come & gone. We all had a great time and I just wanted to make a couple of comments and also take time to thank "Farmer" Robinson and his lovely wife Diana for their gracious hospitality and all the preparation they put into Cubfest. The weather was beautiful as you can see from the pictures. Also wanted to thank Mike Tiemann for opening the technical seminars with his practical demonstration on fuel supply issues vs. poor starting. Next time, he'll be sure the gas is turned on.
Just kidding Mike.
We did not have a tightly scheduled program to follow which allowed for a lot of informal discussion to take place which I know can be very informative and enlightening. We were able to troubleshoot a couple of problems and share some hints. Barb Dotson even said she learned something so I know it was a good program.
The field time was great as well. It has been a long time since I turned a furrow and it was very enjoyable to me. Thanks again to Steve B. for the use of his cub and plow.
I can't overlook the social time either. We had good food and good times together. The Dotson Inferno (campfire) was welcome Saturday night as the temperatures dropped a little. And the pizza party was fun as well.
There are rumors floating around that say Cubfest will be held here in the heart of Ohio next year. I promise I will endeavor to put together something for next year. Besides, it gives me a whole year to clean my shop and I may be able to reach the back wall by then. If anyone has suggestions as to what kind of demonstrations or discussions they would like to see, please post your suggestions so we can put something together something that will be useful and interesting.
I'm sure some of the others will have input as well but I just want to close by saying that those who feel I had an unfair weight advantage in the pull will just have to learn to live with it!
Thanks again to all who made this year's Cubfest a success!
