at 32 years old i think i would be the youngest person there, lol. in order to keep the tradition of the old cubs alive we need more younger people such as myself. i have a 2 year old son who just loves my cub, lol. i take him for rides occasionally but not when i am doing something with the tractor..... never with the PTO engaged. he is obsessed with the tractor, literally. take him outside and its like gravity, he goes right for the tractor, it's kind of funny actually. i hope to keep the interest alive in him as he grows older.... then we will have an excuse to get a 2nd cub, lol. maybe 14 or 15 years from now, lol.

Trust me on this one, at 32 you will not even be close to the youngest.

This young lady has grown up a bit, but still attends and still likes to plow. :)

Note the young fellow in green, hands greasy and he still comes and gets them greasy:

These pics are examples of young people taking an active part. CubFests are family affairs -- for kids of all ages. :)

Don't forget you can have a Mini Fest. Just invite some of the people close to you for a one day get together.

You should try to get to Cecil's Northeast Cubfest. Well worth the trip.
Spaceghost and I have traveled to Ohio, and VA, to cubfests. Went with Joe Malinowski and Buzzardwing, to Va, this year. Been to some, with Cecil, too. Warning, they can be addictive! Ed

You forgot Billy Ray! If I didn't know any better, I'd guess he was only in his early twenties! :lol:

What's the cutoff for that there list, Mr. Roy? Ron L is only three years younger than me and you're making me feel kind of old right now... :?

No matter, at least two of my family members are on the list and they try to make me feel old too... :)
