Cub A Rama

Sun Sep 26, 2004 5:08 pm

Wow: what a great time Dee and I had with all of you. Some one said to me and I agree it is like a family reunion. Makes it nice to put names with faces of our fellow forum members. Actually it is impossible to thank you all, Big Dog, CubBud, Lurker, and so many more than I can list so I guess the best thing to do is to really thank them who makes it possible, J P Tractors and most of all, Thanks JAMIE we love ya!

Amen to that Chuck. I just rolled in after 9 1/2 hours on the road. Parked the cub and all the goodies in the barn and have sat down to rest a while (at least this seat ain't movin' down the interstate @ 65 mph.) I think this year was the best ever. We had more fun with old and new friends than ever before. For those of you who didn't make it there - well, you missed it! :(

DITTO :!: :!: Dad and I left Fredericktown this morning at 7:00A.M. and arrived home at 12:30P.M.

I, too, think that was the best show yet. They will only get bigger and better in the years to come. I enjoyed meeting all the new faces and visiting with old friends. :D I can't wait until next year. I made reservations for 2005 and 2006 before I left. :wink:

Thanks Jamie, John Jr., JP and gang.....another perfect job :!:

I also had a GREAT TIME. My tractors are still on the trailer and could be there for a week or so until I can get the time to put all 4 of them away and all of the implements. Plus some more stuff I bought.

DITTO! What a great show. Thanks Jamie and the rest. :D

I too had a great time. There were several things present that I had never seen before. There was less time pressure on the return trip, since I didn't have to allow time to check in to the motel or unload the same night. So I hung around after breakfast and didn't hit the road until about 8:30. Return travel went well and I got home after 7.

My wife and I also enjoyed this one, and enjoyed getting to see some distant (miles wise), friends again. Got home about 7:30 Sunday after stopping in Illinois to pick up an "A" flail mower for a friend in CT. This is one show that we look forward to attending.

THANKS JAMIE, for all your hard work.

Greetings all,

Glad to see everyone arriving home OK. I got home about 4PM (Monday), uneventful driving but saw 3 things that struck me as noteworthy. The trees putting on the fall colors in the highest elevations of Pennsylvania's Laurel Highlands. Farmers harvesting their soybeans along I-70 with the sun at just the right angles - looked like scenes from calendars and equipment brochures. Folks taking their Cubs and Cadets home after a GREAT weekend of fun and fellowship. Absolutely beautiful.

It's great to actually meet the people participating in this forum, y'all are a great bunch of folks! Dennis, you have done an outstanding job creating and maintaining this forum. Many, many thanks to Jim Becker and Mike Schmudlack for making room (literally) at the Madison Inn for Cathy and me for 2 nights. Kudos, again, to the Hargis family for a job well done. Fredericktown did an outstanding job of supporting this event. The attitude and spirit of the attendees, vendors and spectators makes Cub-arama a very special event.

Thanks everybody!

Hi Chuck..Enjoyed meeting you. As usual, I'm the last to get home and the last to say THANKS.

It was a spectacle. All the pictures are excellent, but you just have to be there and experience everything 8) 8)

As usual I was the last one to get to Sitzes Saturday evening. What a sight seeing all of those Cubs loaded on trailers at the restaurant and at the Madison Inn. As I was straightening up my parking and getting out of the truck at Sitzes, a middle aged couple in a pick up next to me was smiling ear to ear. The gentleman rolled down his window and said, "This must be tractor country!" I greeted them and said, "Well sir if you folks are not from around here, you will soon find out that this IS tractor country." The gentleman then asked if I could tell them the directions how to get to Marquand. I said I had no idea where Marquand was cause I'm from Arizona and he and his wife about died laughing :lol: :lol: :lol:

Looking forward to next year already

Hey Mike,

563 looks great with the rocky hills in the background. 8) Was that picture taken at your place on on the road :?:

Do you have any trouble cultivating on the hill behind you?????? I looks kind of rocky.

When you say 563 is that serial number 563???

Thu Sep 30, 2004 6:21 am

IO - yes that's serial number 563. The 63rd cub built. Quite a treasure. And it purrs like a kitten.

WOW!!! That is a low number. Is that the lowest one known to be still running??

According to Mike Schmudlak 501 is still running and not to far from him.
