Nothing is excluded. We are going to have fun with it this year. Farmall C, Allis Chalmers C, cultivators and so on. Besides, don't most tractors start with gas?

Dates for the Western Michigan Cub Fest are June 7th, 8th & 9th, 2018. This will be in conjunction with the 27th annual Antique Farm Power Club tractor and engine show. This year we are featuring anything that starts with a "C". Case, Cletrac, Cockshutt, Co-Op, Craftsman, Catwerpillar, C&G Cooper, C.L. Best, Cameco, Cameron, Cayuga, CDHL, Centaur, Century, Certified, Champion, Chase, Cobey, Coleman, Colt, Common sense, Consolidated, Continental, Corbit, Corliss, Cultor & Custom. These are just the US companies and some of these I have never seen. So Cub, Farmall C, Allis C and so on all fit into that category. I like to see implements also. look at our website at www.antiquefarmpowerclub.biz for last years info. There will be all of that going on plus this year we are having a doodlebug pull. I want to add a cub Tug to this as well. Free camping with electric for exhibitors, Restrooms with showers and a dump station. Food on the grounds. Potluck Thursday night, blacksmith, kids games and on and on.
Questions, call me at (616) 293-1961

Will there be an equipped shop where we can work on our Cubs?
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

There is no shop. We hold our show at the Muskegon County Fairgrounds. I live 22 miles away and I have a fully equipped shop. That means big hammers.

Okay, thanks. I thought this was a CubFest as we know it in the traditional manner. Sounds more like a Cub Show similar to Cubarama.

Mark,
When I hosted ConnectiCubFest at the Zagray Farm Spring Show, we didn't have a shop either. Art Chester set us up with some large work tables where we were able to do carb rebuilds, distributor tuneups, etc.
We also had a couple of 10' x 20' Shelters that we would work under. We could check timing, adjust valves, things of that nature...so there is always something to do.

Throw in a pretty good Swap Meet/Vendor area as well as several hundred tractors...as long as the weather cooperated, we had a great time.

The only reason I asked is because I like to bring a project tractor. If there is no place to work on them, then I figure out a different plan.

We have buildings but the lighting is marginal. And no tools whatsoever. You could work on stuff but you would have to think ahead about what you'd need.
I also wouldn't want any oil spills since there is livestock when the fair comes in July.

At the meeting last Wednesday night, i announced the idea of a CubFest. They all loved the idea. I'll work out the details about a place to work on projects. I know of 5 cubs in our club, and they all raised their eyebrows when I mentioned the idea.
