A big thanks to all at the Barnyard Bash!

Postby Barnyard » Mon Jun 01, 2015 10:27 am

Wow, where can I begin! Another great Bash is in the books and it is all because of many of you. Rosanne and I want to thank you all for your attendance and support. We had counts of 55, 58, and 60 people at lunch time Friday and about 55 on Saturday. Some left Friday and some new folks came in Saturday so all in all we had about seventy different Cub fans at some point. I cannot say enough about how well the projects went. Everybody was helping everybody. We had seller trailers with parts for sale as well as Cub express items everywhere. Countless items went from trailer to trailer as always happens at a CubFest.

I have to make some special thank yous. As many know, the new shop was behind schedule due to construction problems with the builder. By Tuesday morning I only had 1 100 watt light and one outlet on the wall. Thanks to Bob McCarty’s help Tuesday night and Wednesday morning we were able to get the lights done. Doug Spaur (Thackery) rolled in Wednesday night and spent the rest of the day helping Bob get the temporary electric on the wall so we could use our power tools. Both guys then moved many of the tools from the old shop to the new with the help of others who arrived early. Of course Mike O’Rourke jumped on the tractor and finished the mowing I had started.
I cannot express my thanks enough for all the help the ladies provided Rosanne. One person cannot feed 60 people without a little help from her friends. They selfishly pitched in with all the prep and cooking, as well as made sure the snack bowls were always full.

Speaking of snacks, I can never forget David Grapes for his efforts in getting a nice donation of bread, buns, cookies, chips, nut, etc, etc. David, it did not go unnoticed. Thank you for all the support you provided.

Then of course we needed a place to eat. We needed to set up the 20x40 canopy along with 60+ chairs and several Tables. Mikki simply went into the shop and rounded up several people to get the canopy and tables up and Clint followed up with the chairs. There were so many people helping there I can’t remember them all. Sorry I can’t think of names guys, but your help was appreciated too.

When the storm came up and took a canopy for a ride two people leapt into action, literally. Bonny Miller and Clint Mo ran to the canopy and held it away from Rosie’s truck to prevent damage while they stood in the driving rain. When it was over, both were soaked completely through to their skin. I have to give them great big thanks for doing something that was totally above and beyond. There was only a small scratch but the windshield remained intact.

There was a lot of action all weekend, so if I left you out on the thanks, please forgive me. Believe me, your support for this event is appreciated year after year.
Thank you all! Rosanne and I look forward to doing it all over again in 2016.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Your, and Rosie's, dedication and support of this forum, CubFests, and people does not go unnoticed. All you do, seen and unseen, is a testament to how much you care. It is appreciated.

This photo is not very clear, but shows the awning being dismantled after the "blow"!

And I don't know if he ever realized it, but we waited...and waited...and waited to take a photo of Denny coming out of the Port-a-Potty when he got trapped in it when the storm hit. Not sure, but is he still in there, Bill??!!

Bill, I know there were several things you wanted to get done to the new barn before the Bash, but quite honestly it worked out very well as it was. Yes, we made several trips to the old shop for tools & hardware but we all need more exercise anyway. Thanks for all the hard work from you and all those who pitched in to help. A big thanks to ladies in the kitchen for all the great food. It looked like everyone was having a great time!

This was the first Bash for Sarah and the kids. They all had a great time. The kids were asking on the way home when they could come back. Thanks again Bill and Rosie.
