Tractor show in Canton Texas

Postby Mike in Louisiana » Sat Apr 07, 2012 9:44 pm

Just made it back home from the big tractor tractor show in Canton Texas. Got to see Jim Becker, Terry Foster and wife Christine, Thomas Mays and wife Darcy and Skeet. Lots of cubs there, Had a great time. I even made a pineapple upside cake to them.. Billy Ray I saved you a piece of cake. Come up here (Louisiana) and get it or I can save it till the cub tug. :D :D :D
1975 cub (LouAnn) serial # 245946, 1941 John Deere Model H

I made it back, got unloaded etc. It was a good weekend. Official count of tractors for the whole show was 235. The 2 pavilions are each roughly the length of 4 football fields. All space was used. I didn't get around to doing a Cub count but several others did. The highest count anyone mentioned to me, I think was 27, with others' counts close to the same. If anything, the actual number was probably slightly higher than anyone counted.

I really had a good time here this weekend. Had a good visit with Mr Mike and Mr Jim. Even got to look at a few tractors while we were there! :lol:

Here are just a few of the cubs that were there. It was by far the most of any model tractor there I do believe

It is kind of tough trying to get good pictures under the pavilion because of the light. Thomas did well with the picture he posted.

Here is a sequence of photos that tell the most important story of the show.
