I look forward to this weekend every year. My only wish is that I could have been there a little longer.

Thanks for another great cubfest!

Despite my best intentions..... a small bout of something kept me from making the Fest. I am some disappointed :cry: to miss the world famous NE Cubfest, always a great group and a load of fun.

Was hoping someone took over the photographer duty??

Sue and I would like to thank Cecil and Pris for a great weekend too. We got home late last night after our flight was delayed out of Dulles. 35* this morning, fall is definitely in the air. It was great to see old friends again and to offer what little help I could on several projects.

Thanks again, Bob and Sue

I can't add to what's already been said but....what a great weekend!

but we might have to rename it the through out bearing fest. it seemed every tractor to come in the door was getting a new one!
I believe we've sucessfully moved EVERY tool in Cecil's shop to somewhere that it doesn't belong!

Thanks to Cecil and Pris, and everyone who helped feed us!

Art, while cleaning up, we found 2 or 3 tools that were in their right place-unused, or accidently replaced, I'm not sure. Ed Hey Art, did Cecil teach you his "weather dance"? I saw him practicing it, while he was feeding his bee hives, without his gloves!

It seems like every one of Cecil's fests takes on that character. If I recall, one of the fests was "transmissionfest" wasn't it?

Mike it was a busy weekend.
At least (3) carbs got a "tune-up" that I'm aware of, possibly more.
New front seals on (3) engines and rear seals on (2).
(4) TOB.
(2) Clutch/Pressure Plate Assemblies.
(1) Governor replacement.
(2) Oil Changes.
(1) K241 Complete re-assembly and initial startup.
...and lots of donuts!

I was considering uploading the video of a Power Unit being loaded on a trailer, but it is 5 minutes long...
And it might not be rated PG. :roll:

Thanks again for a great weekend. :applause: :applause:
