THE WICHITA COUNTY LIVE STOCK SHOW WILL BE HELD ON JANUARY 12, 2017-JANUARY 14, 2017.
We hope the new year finds you all well! The 2017 show is quickly approaching. We would like to remind you of a few things.
1.) Please remember that each exhibitor is responsible for his/her own shavings. There will be no shavings provided or available at the show. 1 bag is allowed per entry for swine, sheep, goats, and cattle. We will pay the clean-up on the 1st bag. Any extra shavings cleanup will be charged to the exhibitor.
2.) We will have County Show 101 again this year. We were pleased with last year’s turnout. I know David has emailed the info on it. Just a friendly reminder it will be Monday, January 9th beginning at 6pm. Get the scoop on the county show. Get tips you won’t find in the rules or in a book. Q/A with Show officials.
3.) SET-UP: We will set things up Wednesday the 11th beginning at 1pm. We will be there all afternoon/evening, so any and all help is appreciated. That is a also good time to come spread shavings and let us get a count on bags you bring in.
4.) We will be providing lunch for all exhibitors on Thursday at noon. If you are available to provide a crockpot of chili or a soup please call the office. Thanks in advance for your help!!!
5.) BUYERS DINNER: Serving will begin at 5pm and end at 6:30. The food will be served by the cooking team preparing it. We still need all exhibitors to bring a dessert by 5pm. Also we would like all clubs to participate in the dinner. We are asking that each club please send at least 5 exhibitors(7th grade and up please) to help keep desserts on plates, tea refilled, and tables cleared. We will leave it up to you if you would like to rotate your kids in and out or have the same ones the entire time. Please just have them wear their club shirts so that each of the 6 clubs are represented.
