Several hundred people came out last Friday to watch the Mudslingers bout in Serpilio Hall. The crowd got into it from the first time around the track when a couple of girls ripped the fire extinguisher off the wall! Three 20 minute periods provided HARD hits and fast skating. The girls put on a great show; from the uniforms to the theatrics. I don't know when they will do it again, but when you hear about it, plan on coming. We will add ALOT more seats.
I just had someone call me to see about entering their child's artwork at the Fair. I proudly pointed her towards our website and our on-line exhibit guide. Only problem was, no entry forms. Ooops. Anyway, we got it fixed. Fair entry forms are available under Exhibit Guide above.
Want to try something different? Come to the fairgrounds this Friday night and watch the first roller derby bout for our local team, The Mudslingers. This is a ton of fun. Forget what you used to see on Sacramento television when you were a kid. These girls skate hard and fast. I watched them practice briefly and was thoroughly entertained. This could be one more thing that helps out our community by entertaining us and contributing to our economy. It's cheap. Only $4 at the door, kids 10 and under are free. Buy tickets ahead of time at Epilog Books, Indian Creek Veterinarian, Body and Soul, Sierra Promotions or the Fair Office for only $2! These girls have worked hard, come on down around 6:30pm and have a good time. There will be an after bout party at the Plumas Club. Their flyer says drink specials and rough derby girls. Good times!
Just wanted you to know... you can't pick specific seats for the Friday night concert of Trailer Choir. You can only pick the section you want; Stage Seating (which is right down on the field in front of the stage), Grandstand Seating and Bleacher Seating. We are giving the "best" seats out first. That means the seats closest to the center of the stage. So, if you want to sit closest to the stage, or with the best view in the grandstands or bleachers, you better buy your tickets as soon as possible! Go to the entertainment page on the menu above to order on line. We take major credit cards.
Just think, in a week or two, we will be able to make an announcement down at the horse arena from the Fair office. What's even better, is the fact that if that announcement is only for the horse arena, the whol fairgrounds doesn't have to hear it! In fact, we've set up the fairgrounds into different zones so we can make announcements to each zone, or to the whole fairgrounds. Expect to hear music and announcements at events from here on out. All this with grant money from our friends at the California Department of Fairs and Expositions.
We've wanted this for awhile, not just for promotional reasons, but for safety as well. Your fairgrounds are the "go to" place in an evacuation of people and animals. Depending on the size of the evacuation, people could be strewn out all over our 62 acres. This tool allows us to get out information to better coordinate emergency situations. "Attention Plumas Sierra County Fair shoppers, there will be blue light specials all season!"
