Entries are due to the Chamber Office by Saturday, July 31. There are new rules for drivers in the demoli- tion derby on Sunday, Aug. 8. New rules mean zero tolerance for drivers run- ning fuel with a higher oc- tane rating than 91. Fuel will be tested and violators banned for a minimum of two years. '%Ve need to make sure we're not dealing with jet fuel, which has been a prob- lem," board member Karen Sylvester said at a recent meeting. Any vehicle spilling gas or catching on fire will be disqualified. Driver's safe- ty is encouraged through the use of roll cages, dash bars, and door-to-door rein- forcement bars. Under the new guidelines, fenders cut for wheel clearance may be bolted or welded back to- gether, but the use of extra Basin Town Office and the fair office.

The entry fee is more driver-friendly also. The fair board voted to return the fee to $50 and keep a $2,000 guaranteed purse. A full set of rules is post- ed on the Web site at http:// bighorncountyfair.org. A pick-up category is now included in the Sunday afternoon demolition derby lineup.

Dog show Saturday features adoptable dog The Big Horn County Fair Week is set for Aug. 2-8, but three events actually oc- cur prior to Monday. First up is the 4-H Fabric and Fash- ion judging at 9 a.m. today (Thursday) at the Greybull High School Auditorium. In a change from previous years, the Fashion Revue will be held during Fair Week, at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 5. On Saturday 4-H members will be showcasing a variety of dog breeds in many different classes in the Dog Show that be- gins at 9 a.m. According to 4-H dog leader Christine Bullinger, in showmanship, the handlers are judged on how well they groom and prepare their dog for show and on how well they present their pooch to the judge. In conformation classes, the dogs are judged as to how well they meet breed standards. Unlike traditional AKC shows, 4-H even has conformation classes for mixed breeds. In obedience, handlers and their dogs perform one-on-one in front of the judge ex- ecuting commands and then in a group set- ting and demonstrating the dog's ability to remain in a sit/stay and a down/stay while away from the handler. In another fun event called rally, dogs and their handlers move through a series of stations performing the required task at each station. It's a timed event, but the times are only used in the case of a tie as points are awarded at each station. The most exciting event to watch is the agility course. In it, dogs race through an obstacle course including items like bar- rels, tunnels, jumps, A-frames and a dog walk. The dog show typically runs through lunchtime and concessions will be avail- able to purchase during the show thanks to the 4-H junior leaders. This year's dog show will feature a special dog that will be available for adop- tion. Big Horn County 4-H member Rachel Bullinger will be competing in the dog show with Sampson, a male dog from the Cody animal shelter. "I am fostering Sampson for the sum- mer and training him so he is more likely COURTESY PHOTO Rachel Bullinger works with Sampson on the agility course. Sampson will be available for adoption after Saturday's dog show. to be adopted," Bullinger said. "Sampson is a mixed breed but no one is sure which breeds. He was picked up as a stray about a year ago and has been in the shelter ever since. He is shy toward strangers but a re- ally great dog once you get to know him. He is a very loyal dog and follows me any- where. He even sleeps in the window well of my bedroom. He loves to retrieve balls, gets along very well with kids and other animals and has never chased a car. "His calm and eager to please person- ality has made it a lot of fun to work and train with him." Rachel Bullinger said after the dog show Saturday, Sampson will be up for adoption. If no one takes him, though, he will end up back at the shelter. "Sampson, a little over 2 years old, would make a great pet for a special lucky person," she said.

Monday and Tuesday will feature the Horse Halter Show and Horse Perfor- mance shows, both beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday is education art, open class knitting, crocheting and sewing, open class hay, open class floriculture and 4-H general and foods.
