That is great news Steve!

Holiday Inn says Morton, IL is about 20 miles from Roanoke. Is that as good a choice as any nearby?.

Jay, you have all summer to find one and get it set up!!
They are not that hard to come by.
Does one of you Cubs have a 3-point setup?
If so, all you will need is a sleeve hitch and a plow.
What part of the country are you located in?

I have no idea if I’ll be able to make it, but I have a hotel room already by redeeming hotel points. If anyone has 782 parts/implements they may want to trade for lodging, I have tons more hotel points.

My 1650 has the rear lift for the tiller. I've been eye balling the cat 0 3 point kit from xtreme, and converting one of my tillers to 3 point as well. That would open up a bunch more possibilities for attachments and usefulness of that tractor.
I'm located in the central upper peninsula of Michigan. About 3 hours north of green bay Wisconsin.

Hmm... I've never been to a plow day, nor do I have a plow for my little cubs. But I may have to come and watch, and learn more about these amazing little tractors.

I just asked my wife if I could contact this guy and head down this weekend to look at this plow. She thinks a 17 hour round trip is ridiculous, when it's not for a tractor. But what does she know, I've sent this guy a message, now to wait for his reply. The hardest part is gonna be get my bride to let me take her focus svt, because between my two ford trucks, neither one gets over 12mpg!

Haha, I just checked my email and I never sent the message, had it all typed, and never clicked send! I didn't know it was yours. I can't make the plow day, I have a couple brothers from the navy coming up that weekend for our annual bird hunt. I have they plow saved, so when it works out, I'll get ahold of you.

Thanks!
Looks like you had a little rain down there lately?
Nary a drop to speak of here in my yard, ground is like concrete.
