The August meeting was sheduled for this Saturday, July 18, 9:00 AM, at the Ed Wood T & I Center, room 503, but an unexpected change for renewing the meeting room contract with STI has put the location for a meeting in question. We may have to find another locatation for our monthly meetings.

See you at the fair!

Sioux Empire Fair Woodcarving Exposition

Entries for the Sioux Empire Fair Woodcarving Expo are already being mailed in, and Bill Huntimer has contracted with a carver from Brookings to judge this year's competition. Judging will begin Sunday, Aug. 9 at 1:00 PM, and all entries should be delivered to the Arts Building by 4:00 PM Saturday, Aug. 8th.
A copy of the Rules and Regulations and Entry Form can be printed from pages 85 and 86 of the Fair premium book, located under "Registration Forms "at www.siouxempirefair.com

Since 1991, when we had our first "exposition" at the Sioux Empire Fair and only a dozen or so entries submitted, a number of changes have occurred in the way judging and presentation of awards were conducted.

What has not changed is the need for volunteers to help on Saturday with receiving and recording entries and setting up the display area. Whoever is interested can do final setting up and arranging the exhibit for as long as it takes on Monday. Then the usual shifts (AM, PM, Evening) for security duty during the six days of fun at the fair need to be filled.

The master duty schedule will be available at the meeting this Saturday for anyone there who wants to sign up…otherwise call Pres. Hansen (334-5978) to get on the schedule.
