Well, the Fourth Annual Great Western Binder Bee is in the bag. A great time was had by all, we had 74 registrations and near 100 vehicles. There was no official count as all the official people were busy doing other things and kinda forgot!! Oh well, numbers don't matter, just the smiles on everyone's faces and we had plenty of those. I am beat, as I know the rest of the commitee members are, so give us a few days to recoup and we'll post up our experiences.....and pictures!

We truly enjoyed coming this year, we had to head down to Eugene to look at some cattle (They looked good, and Kathy is heading down with Checks today) so we could not stay as long as we wanted. We have had a hard time getting away from the homestead this year, and the break was real good for us. I am looking for a trailer so I can come next time with the tractors and some implements for folks to look at.

Amber picked the music. (His name really is 'Banjo' Willy I used to work with him, he gave me a CD....).
Amber put it all together on Animoto.com...

Outstanding job Chris. I can't begin to match that, but here are a few people photos from the GWBB. I should have the rest of them uploaded to my albums by the end of the week.

Love the photo's.I think from looking at the photo's that I would rather go to this event than Nationals.Looking at all of the scouts and trucks,ect...There is alot more going on here than at Nationals.I like to see the daily drivers and trail rigs more than the trailer queens.Nationals seems to be the same trucks over and over year after year.I might just skip out my trip to Ohio next year for Binder Bee.My hats off to all of you guy's and gal's that put this show on.Look's to me to be top class event in the IH world.

That is a very nice compliment. And though I have never been to Nationals I think it's also very true. I know that will make a few people grin :tt1: To bad you couldn't have routed your travelall trip a few hundred miles more to the west before you drove home.

Russ & Drew: thanks a ton to you both for jumping in and lending some hands to help things run smooth at the Bee! It amazes me to see how much effort goes in to putting on a show like this, and we couldn't have done it without team-playing hard workers like you guys. And Russ, we didn't even need a hammer... :tt2:

ihfarms: thanks for the kind words. I was thrilled with the participation - both exhibitors and attendees. From what I saw everyone had a great time, from young children all the way up. So many cool binders to see. So many great people to talk to, whether it was watching Mike Mayben play all weekend with his engine analyzer toy (which always seemed to have a crowd around it), or getting to jaw with Jeff Ismail & Chad Maycroft from IH Only North, or hearing Dave "The Gear Man" Wimsett regale us with detailed information on anything from Dana axle components to IH Light Line factory details to NASCAR racing, or watching the venerable Ernie Bisio putt around the show on his Cub Cadet beaming with pride at all the shiny IH iron... it was all a blast!

Though I've attended past Binder Bees this was my first year on the show committee, and now that I've had that experience I am deeply impressed with the folks who pulled this thing off. Especially Mike and his wife Kathy who co-chaired the whole shin-dig, and Lyle and Linda Weise who seemed to handle pieces of almost everything (Lyle, what exactly WAS your assigned job!?!? You seemed to be everywhere!). Add Carl's superb artwork, Dan's expert trail bossin', Richard's support & printing, and more, and it all adds up to a fantastic weekend.
