    We rounded up some CubCrafters Cubs and went to Willis for a little friendly competition,Plane and car show.
    It was a team event. We had 2 Carbon Cubs ,1 S2 and newly restored CC PA18
    Spot landing contest 1st place 1'
    Flower drop 2nd place 10'
    Balloon Pop tied for second 1 balloon. I Had never did this before that was fun but tough I hit 2 and they didn't pop🤔
    Team CubCrafters Taxing OUT
    XCUB Showed up in FL so I called GLICKLE and asked if he would go get it and bring it to me. He jumped right on that😄
    Then Gary and I went and rung it out for a couple hours.(SWEET)
    Guy came up and asked he thought the little wheel in the back was suppose to be on the ground when taxing. Told him no that's just a training wheel 🤔
    Great Event

    Sebring Expo was this weekend. Got to meet are new NE sale rep Mark. Hes from NY told him as long as he doesn't move down here I would try not to hold it against him. Took him for a quick tour to the east coast at 200'. (Hey Glenn I think he flew back at 100' so there is hope for him)Showed him some of my local strips I play around on.
    Hes alright for a Yankee😄
    Had a few Friends GA,SC,come down. We snuck the XCUB out when Chip wasn't looking gave the keys to some lucky sole and took it and my Carbon Cub looking for some sand bars and Alligators we found plenty of both. Then early next morning happened to be a pancake breakfast 30 miles away so we took a couple Carbon Cubs and a XCUB across the bombing range at or below 100' dodging buzzards and hopping over powerlines to have breakfast. There ended up being 1 S2,3 carbon Cubs,1 Stolen(TERRY) XCUB, 2 CubCrafters PA 18 rebuilds. Great time. The XCUB departed to the N to go check out a island full of exotics creatures and back to Sebring before Chip knew it was missing. 1 Carbon Cub (BILL)went to the south to Lake O he reported 2 white tails,2Gobblers,11 hogs,78 Gators. I think this was his first time at cross country altitude 100-200' he was having fun. Some how I figure he is going to see a lot on his way back to SC. I think everybody had a good time I did!

    Well after 20+ years of waiting (story almost as long as the wait) the FAA has assigned my little farm strip an identifier. 66VT (Symon) Was told it will be on the next published NY Sectional. In the mean time I'm waiting to see when it hits the GPS data system. 1000'+- all usable. Back door is open bathroom to the right, lab is mouthy until you open the door then lovable. Cub types are all welcome.
