Yes, it was a little damp, but spirits were not! We had a great turn-out on a rainy day. The show and shine brought out a fantastic selection of classic cars, the chili cook-off provided plenty of heat and the business expo did exactly what it was supposed to. Lot's of businesses were able to exchange information about each other, offer samples and give out special deals. Good job to Feather Publishing for organizing a great show. The Footloose Dance studio dancers put on a wonderful show and the Cub Scout Bike Rodeo was well attended. A special thanks to Kent and the Quincy Chamber for gathering an all-star line-up of chili makers. Everyone who went through Old Town to check it out, enjoyed the competition. I can't tell you who won right now, but I'm sure it will be in the paper this Wednesday. I also want to say, the citizens of Plumas County have a great staff here at the fairgrounds. My thanks to the whole crew for pitching in with limited resources and putting together a great event.
