Do to reasons beyond Gttalk's control LAGT Magazine will NO LONGER be publishing GTtalks "Feature Tractor Of The Month" Winners articles. GTtalk wishes LAGT the Best of Luck in their endeavors in the future and enjoyed seeing Our Winners story in the Magazine.

Well, too bad!  Now that they have "improved" the mag, maybe it will become the same junk as rest of them??  I hope not. I do see some odd ads for Viagra and othe non-related stuff in them and other  tractor mags. Not sure why they would allow such things, even tho they are a Paying advertiser.  One odd thing about the articles was how much later they were than the issue date. Not sure what problem was, but we must move on!

That was because I had to stay 3 months behind to have 2 articles to submit at a time and they had to be submitted almost 2 months before we would see that issue.

Despite what the news is telling us, the financial health of most individuals and small businesses is tentitive at best. We are all having to make uncomfortable choices. LAGT made a decision that they hope will help them financially. I can only wish them good luck because I have enjoyed the magazine and the monthly contests.

That's too bad.  I think it was a plus for all of us here to see the site and our members featured in the magazine.  

 

I also have a confession.  I let my subscription lapse a while ago.  Usually you are bombarded with reminders.  When nothing came, I took it as a sign.  I haven't seen the new magazine.  I hope Kate and the gang are still ok.

I have been a staunch supporter of the magazine since subscribing, BTW, I only found out about the mag from its ties to the site. The mutual support the mag and site gave each other was kind of like the family report we have here... I will have to study that mindset and also study the renewal form very closely when it comes.

Brian, thanks or your efforts in getting as many of our tractors in there as possible, I know it was a lot of work.

Brian, I too thank you for your efforts of getting the articles into the magazine. I let my subscription run out last Dec. as I didn't think it was something I wanted.

Real shame, as both the parties involved made a pretty good team. I too, have left my subscription run out, not due to any fault of the magazine, but because I really didn't enjoy it enough to pay the subscription fee for only getting the magazine six times a year. I wish Kate and Brandon continued success with the magazine, and don't hold any type of grudge towards anybody involved with the separation.

I don't see any reason the monthly contest can't continue.  Clean slate.  New categories perhaps?  All for bragging rights.  I mean, it's about fun, right?

Well that's a bummer...It was one of the reasons I asked for a subscription as a Christmas gift this year!  I do get the VGTCOA publication, and enjoy that.  It's simple, and has a personal feel to it, with contributing local 'directors' who represent the club, that almost any reader can bump into at local shows.

Yes, this is a shame. I keep my copies on the coffee table, and glance through them regularly.

As do others. There's just something about being in print, and it was nice to see GTT members

there. Well, to those of you that made it into print, hang on to your copies. They are going to be

Rare. Brian, thanks for all the effort you put into this. It was a good thing while it lasted.

We had the contest before this and I'm sure we'll still continue it!

So I should expect another useless ad in the upcoming issue.

I wanted to let my subscription expire, but my wife talked me into renewing.

 

Next time it comes due, I will probably let is expire
