BRAD DEVEIAUX PHOTO Big Horn County Fair Ranch versatility contest added to fair lineup BY BRAD DEVEREAUX With just months be- fore the Big Horn County Fair Aug. 2-8, organizers are working in high gear to finalize events and prepare the fair book for publishing. The Big Horn County Fair Board met Monday, April 12, at Big Horn Federal in Lovell to discuss several items in preparation of the 2010 county fair. The ranch versatil- ity contest will be a new event for 2010. The board discussed adding the event that would award ribbons and prizes to the top horse- men for a combined score in the events of cow horse, trail, halter, reining and roping. Because cow horse, trail, halter and reining are already events, the only event to be added is roping. Roping would con- sist of a stationary dum- my calf that competitors would rope from horseback, while young competitors would be allowed to stand. Dale Clark previously noti- fied the board that he was willing to organize the new event and supply prizes. Willie Bridges report- ed on the status of funding for a new covered show are- na. Bridges said because of competition and decreased funding of the State Loan and Investment Board, it is a tough time to get grants from the State. He said he is in the process of apply- ing for a grant through the Daniels Fund and looking for other funding sources to fund the project. "I'd rather go another year and get what we want than to band-aid this up," Bridges said in response to a question about rehabili- tating existing facilities. "I know it seems like we've waited a long time, but why not wait a little lon- ger?" Matty Moody agreed. "People are excited .a,bout thin, project, " Bridges said. "cdn't want to give up on it. We're moving for- ward, just slower than be- fore." The board talked about changes to the lease agree- ment that renters sign for the fairgrounds, hall and arena. The board discussed a new rental agreement drafted by County Attorney Georgia Antley Hunt. The board decided to instruct secretary Vangi Hackney to add a few other items to the lease agreement and send it back to Hunt. The board agreed that there could be a flat fee for renting the hall, but not for the arena and fairgrounds, which would vary depend- ing on the type of event. Dallen Smith comment- ed that he would like to see more details about expecta- tions of cleaning rented fa- cilities in the future. Bridg- es said responsibilities of renters would be spelled out in the new contract. The board made a mo- tion to allow the county gov- ernment to use fair build- ings for no charge except a refundable cleaning depos- it. The county government would be required to sign a lease agreement like any other renter. In other board happen- ings Monday: *The board discussed vendor fees for the 2010 county fair, but did not make a motion to set fees. *The board decided on black and white tri-fold bro- chures for the fair. *The board set fees for campaigning at the fair. Politicians will pay $100 for a table and $250 for a sign for the week. oMitch Shelhamer re- ported that the Bulls and Barrels event is planned for Friday, May 28, at the fairgrounds. The event will consist of bull riding and barrels, with two or three sections and a short go for each event. He said the event will "pay pretty well" and will be fast-paced with loud rock music. *The board discussed the possibility of having go-kart races at the fair- grounds. Howard Gernant said representatives of a go- kart company in Powell are coming in May to talk about what type of event would be possible. i ;# ....... FOUND! Found dogs are usually lost dogs.
