LaPorte, Sedalia, Bloomsburg, Union Grove, Des Moines, Huron, DuQuoin, Lima.  Maybe more but don't ask me to put them in order except LaPorte was the first one.  That was a rainy mess as I recall.

'03 Bloomsburg Pa

'06 Mansfield Ohio

'07 Bloomsburg Pa

'08 Colombia Mo- first long trip- there were some red power friends I wanted to meet in person in that area- the 2003 Chevy pickup stranded Mike, my daughter, and I in Wentzville, Mo for 3+ days on the way home

'09 Madison, Wis- helped with the Regular restoration

'10 Laporte, In- Mike hauled his '29 and my '26 Regulars all the way out there

'12 Duquoin, Il- took corn planter parts to a guy on the way

'13 Lima, Oh

'15 Sedalia, Mo- visited my Uncle and Aunt and went to Branson beforehand

'16 Union Grove, Wi- helped with the F12 restoration

'18 Montgomery, Al- stayed with some Alabama friends going to and coming back

'19 Bloomsburg, Pa- started IH fenders on their way to a guy in Mich.

so 12 RPRUs so far. the Cub Loboy has been to 8 of them. It has been great to make friends and contacts all over the country.

Been to every one except for 2015. The reason we missed was we were packing for 6 week trip to Australia.

'03, '07 and '19 were Roundups. . '14 at Bloomsburg was just a showdown show ( not the national Roundup)

I think I was only at Union Grove in '16 and Bloomsburg in '19. I was to The Showdown in 2014 at Bloomsburg I don't think I made it to the 2007 show I don't remember..... but I know I didn't make it to the 2003 show because it was a couple weeks before I got married........ trying to get the farm work done........ so I could go on a honeymoon :)

The tractor pull was in '03.......That is still talked about around here, I came home every day for chores and missed it, cultivated corn every even too.  I was at '07, the deal in '14, but didn't stay long at either one.  Only reason I was at this last one for more than one day was to hear Bud Youle speak and couldn't do so the first day because I had my nephew and he was looking for powershifts and he had no luck.

RPRU is the abbreviation for Red Power Roundup.

Ch. 35 is only chapter. It is on life support. The Bellona club is much more active but not a chapter. They have a big IH auction coming up in November.

 I went to the Bloomsburg one this year, it was my first round up and it sure won’t be my last! 

 I wanted to go to the one in Wisconsin three years ago but I was behind in my work because of the weather and it was a nice week here when the Roundup was on so I could not go! 

 I was very impressed with my first round up, I got to meet a bunch of the forum members and they were all very nice people to chat with… Even MTO is a really nice guy!!   (but you didn’t hear that from me)

 Here is a picture of the goodies I bought, The only thing missing in the picture is the weight bracket for the 86 or 88 series tractors that I bought from Pete1468

All 3 in Bloomsburg, Mansfield Oh, Lebanon Tn, Mt Pleasant Ia.

Mansfield was the most memorable.  Wife's Taurus left us set literally pulling out of the fairgrounds.  Left it sit and 6 people climbed in mom and dad's 05 chevy with tractors in tow and we got home at 2am.  Got up at 6am and headed 7 hours back to Mansfield and loaded up the car on the gooseneck and drove another 7 hours home again.  Got home a little before 9pm Sunday and we were all BEAT!!!  But it was one to remember.
