After a very successful and fun filled weekend at the North Thompson Fall Fair, the Yellowhead 4-H members are getting ready to participate at the Provincial Winter Fair on Sept. 21 – 25, 2012. The Fair will once again being held at the North Thompson Fair Grounds and Agriplex, and the community is urged to attend. Provincial Winter Fair kicks off with opening ceremonies at 12:45 on Friday, Sept. 21. This is followed by three days of competition in team fitting, showmanship and market classes in beef, lamb, horse, rabbit and photography. Admission is free on Friday, and only $2.00 on Saturday and Sunday. Children 12 and under are free.
Don’t miss the group competitions on Saturday night in the beef show ring, which finishes up with the Fred Nichol Beef event ant the Twenlow Sheep event. 4-H members compete to win either a steer or a lamb in these events.
If the Beef, Lamb and Horse Show rings are not busy, you may want to catch the Top Hand competition in the Rodeo arena on Saturday and Sunday.
The Provincial Winter Fair winds up with a live auction starting at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 24. Some of the best beef, lamb and framed photographs to be had are to be offered up for sale to the highest bidder. This sale provides the 4-H members the funds needed for the next year’s project.
If you have any questions about the Fair or buying at the auction, please do not hesitate to ask a Yellowhead 4-H member. They are easy to spot in their bright blue shirts. Hope to see you at the Fair.
