Cubfest was really fun. The boys were likes kids in a candy store, in fact, they were having so much fun, they wore me out.

Thanks everyone for the tips. My 11 year old and I rebuilt the spare carb last night. Timing the mag is next.

I look forward to seeing everyone again.

Peter, Art and all who helped organize and execute ConnectiCubfest #1....a job well done :!:

My BIL and I had a fantastic time. It was great meeting all those that I hadn't met before and seeing old friends. I wish I could have stayed longer, but Colin has a lot of health problems and was tiring quickly. Hope to see all of you in Ohio in June.

Just put pictures from day 1 in the ConnectiCubFest 2007 Album that ConnectiKIT took. They are really good!
Don, you'll really appreciate these of the carb off CTdave's 1959 roadside vegetable stand landmark. I'm not sure you had the opportunity to see it.

Rudi, here's one for you, the grille off CTdave's '59;


I'm sure ConnectiKIT will have more pictures for me to post, plus I have quite a few of my own and I'm sure Larry has some more.

For Jim Becker, Bill Hudson, Ken Updike, Cecil, and any others that have guided me in learning how to plow with my Cub. Art Chester gave me the job of plowing the house garden at Zagray Farm during ConnectiCubFest.

Other than one rock that brought me to a dead stop, it was a lot of fun.

For everyone who asked where I got my IH Flag, here's the link to Aldermans in Lennon, MI. They have three (3) different sizes.

peter we dug out the rock in the lower part of the garden last week.... well it was more of a boulder... needed the Hough utility to lift it out with it's 5 ton lift capability.

so i thought you were ok in there. just where is the latest 'potato'???

Hi Guys. I had a blast this weekend. I can not wait for CecilFest and couple more shows down by me. It was great to put some Face's to names. Really a great group. I loved being up there at the farm and Joined the QVEA within a hour of being there. Best of all being able to Strech the Legs on "Casper" and "Demi". Really the first time I really have been able to ride them since I got them. So thanks guys for putting it on and making a great and memorable day. I plan on spending the weekend next year. Also bought tractor number 8 so it was a super day. (1964 Cub Cadet 70) :) -Stick-

My thanks to the people at the Zagray Farm Museum for hosting our cub fest.......

Sorry i couldn't make it back on saturday/sunday. This weekend was a busy one my mom is back in the hospital again and lied to the doctor she told him she was 87 but she is almost 90 in a few months. The doctor was upset. But she is still on this side of the green so i guess thats good. I'd rather be looking down at the green rather than laying down looking up at it i guess. Seeing her living at 90 does that mean i'll make it to 90 too? So i have many more years ahead to play with my cubs and stuff that sounds good equals many more years of seat time right?

There's a great bunch of guys there and everyone made me feel welcome too.

The power supply frame was a fun project and i think Kit had fun too. I was happy to be a part of it thanks. I have to thank Kit for his help too and the unseen helper is my oldest son he put the frame in my subaru outback so i could transport it up there. My truck gets 15 mpg and the subie gets 30+ mpg thats a no brainer on which one to use right, if the frame fits.

I think we need to discuss job description with our photographer! :wink:


Actually, he's taking a well deserved break.

Peter, i believe at that moment, Buzzard Wing was functioning in a supervisory capacity. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry I didn't get to meet you Bill, but I do understand priorities! We will meet one day soon. Very nice job on the stand. I think it is rugged enough to support the corner of a barn or whatever use QVEA will put the engine to on it's own. Knowing those folks they will have it running something interesting

As for my poses in various photos.... Can't explain the first one, but the second one I was showing off the back of my treasured 'CubFest 06' shirt from Gene's last summer..... I also have the pin on my hat too. Hey at least my eyes were open!
