Warm up your pitching arm for the bean bag toss
or a game of wiffle ball on the lawn

and their mascot "Cubby!"

Cubby Bear will throw out the opening pitch
(popcorn balls) at our opening ceremonies.
He will be visiting with our exhibitors and llamas
and will be available for photo-ops

We are hoping to have one or more of the

Saturday and Sunday for pictures and autographs.
There will also be Iowa Cubs baseball caps
available for autographs from Cubby and the players.


Don't forget your BANNERS for the arena fence and your STALL DISPLAYS
