Good luck! Wow your fair is early!!! My fair is the earliest around in my area and its not for another 2 weeks. I only have 16 birds entered but I'm at my max allowed then my sisters showing 4 for me and my friend has 11 of my birds entered
Our fair always starts the first Friday in July. It's one of the earlier ones in Indiana. I'd like more time for the kids to work on projects, but it is what it is. We had poultry check in on the 4th this year. The show will be on the 4th next year. State Fair starts in August, but school here now starts August 5th. I have to pull kids out of school to show at the state fair but don't mind doing it since the school board decided to change the calendar to such an early start.
Wow! Your schools start really early doubleoakfarm! What a bummer for the kids when its still summer weather. =( Ours won't start until Labor Day here in Upper Michigan. Colleges start last week of August which is when school used to start too.
They tried to pass a law at the state level requiring schools to start after Labor Day unless a district was on a year round calendar. Our district decided to adopt a "balanced" calendar. They get off two weeks in October, two in December and two in March with the beginning of August start date. The state law didn't pass but we are stuck with this schedule.
