Tlell Fall Fair Catalogues are now out!

  • Jul. 14, 2008 6:00 a.m.

Submitted by Linda Louis-The Tlell Fall Fair catalogues have been mailed to everyone who entered last year. For those looking for a catalogue they can be found at Sandspit Inn, Isabel Creek Store, Ranch Feeds, Gas Plus, and Home Hardware. They are no fees to enter. Entries must be at the Fair Grounds on Saturday Aug. 2 between 2-6 pm. (Except animals and challenges which come on Sunday Aug. 3 by 10 am.) For those who cannot get to the fair grounds on the Saturday, please contact Linda at 559-8975 by July 31.Due to the rising cost of just about everything, the fair committee had to make a hard decision to raise the admission price so please note the new admission prices are $10 for 16 and older, $1 for 5-15 and under 5 free. As in previous years your admission makes you eligible for all the gate prizes. One new thing this year, there is a gate prize for 5-15 year olds.To help us celebrate the fairground’s new permanent stage we have asked a favourite of fair-goers, Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard, aka The Contenders, to perform. For the child in everyone you’ll be consumed by laughter when Al Simmons lets his zany comedy loose.Those who plan to enter even a single category are urged to mail, fax or email their entry forms by July 28. This way your tags will be ready, without long line-ups, when you bring in the entries.A little about the challenges: this year’s craft challenge is to decorate an old shovel (don’t forget the theme: “a bloomin’ good thyme”). Another challenge is the “duct tape challenge”! Create something using duct tape. Anything goes – the only rule is that the item must be 75 percent duct tape. The other interesting challenge is the “brown bag”. Gladys has made up bags, one for adults and one for children. This one you have to pre-register by calling either Linda at 559-8975 or Gladys at 559-4624 and we’ll get the bags to you. An all island work party to set up the fair will happen on July 27 at noon at the fairgrounds. All willing hands welcome.There are still some booth spaces available. If you or your organization would like to set up a booth or table call Linda.
