Fall Fair fast approaching

  • Jul. 18, 2011 7:00 a.m.

Submitted by Linda Louis–Where did the time go? The Tlell Fall Fair is only one week away, July 31. There is no charge to enter items into the fair. How to enter: Get a catalogue from one of the locations around the island or go to our web site at www.tlellfallfair.com and download the entry pages you need. Then mail, drop off or fax those pages to me at 559-8975 (Box 497 Queen Charlotte). Your entry cards will be waiting at the info booth when you bring in your items. Shorter waiting time in line up! Bring your entered items to the fair grounds on July 30 between 3-6 pm. If this is a problem give me a shout by Thursday and other arrangements can be made. In Masset give Jeanette Corry a call at 626-3220.Please don’t bring challenges or animals until the day of the fair but before 10 am please. If you wish to enter the brown bag challenge give call Gladys Noddin at 559-4624 before July 28 at 4 pm and she will get you a bag. It should be interesting to see what is in it this year. The challenge is different every year and there is one for adults and one for children.There was an “oops!” in the catalogue this year. I forgot the decorated cake challenge. It’s still happening. Decorate a cake to our theme, Agriculture – Grow with it! Bring it by 10 am fair day and the public chooses the winner.Master Gardener! Who will get it this year! Last year was Jason Shafto and Christine Pansino from Tlell. Congratulations! Anyone who enters houseplants, garden flowers, fruit and vegetables is entered into the master gardener category. How does it work? The numbers of points given by the judges for each item entered in the four categories are totalled and the overall score when combined gives us the master gardener for that year. This year’s prize is a wheelbarrow/hand truck mule donated by Home Hardware in Masset. It also comes with your name on the trophy and bragging rights. Can’t wait to see who gets it this year!Come, grab a bite to eat, listen to music and see what other islanders young and young at heart are doing. Hope to see you at the fair on July 31. Gates open at 10 am. Admission is $10 for 16 and up, $1 for 5 to 15 year olds. Under 5 free.
