  • Jul. 2, 2007 5:00 p.m.

“Kids day at a Fair “is fast approaching!The Tlell Fall Fair catalogs have been printed and one has been mailed to each person who entered last year. Extra copies can be found in Sandspit, Isabel Creek Store in Queen Charlotte, Ranch Feeds in Tlell, Gas Plus in Port and Home Hardware in Masset. You can also get one from our website ( www.tlellfallfair.com ) Some of the 16 classes have been revamped this year, so check out what is new.The judging is still blind – that is the judges do not know who has submitted the entries. Judges are local residents (not professionals) but they apply provincial standards set by the association of fairs. Their decisions are final.The Challenge Category (class 16) is voted on by the fair-goers. These include Floral Arrangement, Decorated Cake, Veggie Sculptures ,Building a planter, Decorating a cupcake (Children 12 and under) , the Brown Bag ( must be pre-registered , so you get it in time ) and the Craft Challenge- Decorate a pair of jeans or overalls. This year we have added a scrapbook page, a shadow box and a Christmas tree ornament. The winning entry from these three will be taken to the provincial choice awards.Those who plan to enter are urged to mail, fax or drop off their entry forms by July 28. This way the entry tags will be ready, without long lineups, when the entries are brought in.Entries (except animals) will be received at the fairgrounds only from 3 pm to 6 pm on Saturday Aug.4. Entries brought in after this time period will not be judged and placed as display. Animals and challenges are due the following day (Sun Aug. 5) by 10 am. If there’s a problem getting your entries to the fair grounds, please contact us by no later than Aug.1 and arrangements may be made.Booth spots are still available but are going fast. For more info call Linda Louis at 559-8975.
