Hopefully it will thaw more today but that stuff was solid ice with a coating of snow then some freezing rain on top of all of it! UGH!! Sorry we didn't make it--next year for sure!! Steve


You call that "clobbered"? We get frosts, heavier than that!

We'll I was planning on being there Saturday, but a bad case of bacterial bronchitis has said no way. Sucks, but don't really need to be outside in this weather. Hope y'all have fun and stay warm.

It was another great one this year! I wish I would have brought a project tractor, because everything that went in the shop, came out much better. One tractor that hadn't run in 15 years was purring like a kitten by the time it left. The food was off the chart, once again, and if I had to judge.......the banana pudding would have took the blue ribbon. :lol: Look forward to next year!

I have to thank Buddy and Hope for all their fine southern hospitality. The food was outstanding. Was a great event and I look forward to next year.

Another outstanding CubFest. On Thursday the weather forecast looked a little bleak. Friday morning dawned cold but Buddy had room for 5 or 6 Cubs inside his heated shop and it wasn't long before jackets were coming off. By noon the weather had warmed up and it was a great southern winter day. Saturday was even better. I don't know how many Cubs were repaired but there seemed to be a steady stream going out the door. I don't believe there are any shops that could repair this many tractors in 2 days and I know they wouldn't do it for free and also provide 3 meals a day. Thanks to Buddy and Hope and the crew of tractor and food experts they assembled for this event. Another interesting thing was the large number of young people who were working on tractors. I am glad to see this interest by people who were born after their cub was manufactured. If you missed the LA CubFest this year my advice is to find a way to be there next year. You won't regret it.

Been very busy since I got back from the Bogalusa Cubfest but did want to thank everyone and let you all know my wife Peggy and I really enjoyed it. Thank you Mr. Buddy and Ms. Hope for hosting it and your gracious hospitality. We met and made friends with some very fine Christian folks and hope to be back next year. Just goes to show that “Yankees” and “Rednecks” can get along and play together! The weather was also perfect. Thank you Bob for helping with my carburetor problems and Mike, Bill and Art from Oklahoma and the rest that helped get us tuned up a little. Hope you all made it home safely. The tractor is running much better. Hope to see you all again in the near future.

Harold R…I agree the banana pudding was the bomb!
Larry G…. I am interested in hearing about the car museum that I have never heard of in my neck of the woods. Was it really there?
