Message from NTFFRA president

Jill Hayward "I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words, but of deeds - in achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have Jill Hayward, president come to us from the struggles of former years." Impressive words written by E.M. Tiffany for the opening paragraph of the FFA Creed, and adopted by the National FFA Convention in 1930. Words that ring especially true in today's world as people are once again embracing the importance of agriculture, food safety, and food sustainability. In this modern and technological era, it is easy to blissfully go on our merry way, finding all we need to clothe and feed our families at stores, shops, and department chain giants. But unless you live on a farm, how many of us really know where all of those items we wear, utilize, or put on the table actually come from? How are they made, how are they grown? Part of the mission statement for the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association is, "To encourage, develop and promote the advancement of agriculture...". In a nutshell that means our annual Fall Fair is about education – teaching the visiting public the value of agriculture; providing a venue where visitors can meet the families who grow the food, raise the stock, and help us to raise healthy and happy children. To achieve this goal we annually put together a unique class on agriculture that fills three whole days with first class fun for the whole family – from the smallest to the oldest. In fact, you'll be having such a great time enjoying entertainment, music, magic, laughter and thrills, that the learning part will just sneak up on you – and the great memories will last a lifetime! We're very proud of our old time country fair, and we are especially proud of our membership, volunteers, exhibitors, and performers who bring what agriculture is really about to our fairgoers. Most importantly though we need to say a big thank you to the people who still work the earth, raise the stock, and feed the world. Without you, we'd all be lost. Come on down to our fair, and join us in celebrating AGRICULTURE AT ITS FINEST! Jill Hayward, President 2011-2012 North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo

Mayor Bill Humphreys Cathy McLeod, MP Welcome to you all! 'Bulls, Boots and Broncs' says it all as the theme for the 2012 North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo! The 63rd edition of the Fair is packed with fun for everyone. Lots of exhibits, farm animals of all kinds, horse shows, entertainment, great food and a top flight rodeo. Mayor Bill Humphreys Every year the Fair puts on a first class show with learning about agriculture tossed in for free. It is all old time fun at its very best. Through the years the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association has guided the growth and improvements to the Fair. This dedicated group of individuals and a host of volunteers have made it possible for all of us to have a 'true to its' roots agriculture experience. The brand new, and ever expanding Agriplex is testament to the hard work and generosity of all those involved. It is nothing short of amazing what can be done when people with common goals and passions work together. On behalf of the residents of Barriere and the District Council I say thanks to you all for your efforts and dedication that make this wonderful event possible. Make sure to have fun everyone. I guarantee you will go home with memories to last a lifetime, but be sure to come back soon. The welcome mat is always out here in Barriere. Bill Humphreys Mayor, The District of Barriere

Remembering pony chariot racer Dave Price The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association will be presenting a dedication to the memory of Dave Price in the rodeo arena on Saturday, Sept. 1, after the parade. In 1994 Dave Price took his pony chariot team to Chilliwack to race in the B.C. Chariot and Chuckwagon Association provincial championships. And race they did, taking second in their class for 52 inch teams. It was also at this event that Dave received the association's Sportsman of the Year Award. Dave Price was 76-years-old at the time. That same year Dave received a plaque at the Williams Lake event honouring him for the oldest driver on the pony racing circuit. "Dad was kind of proud that he was able to hang in there with the younger ones," says his daughter Sharon; who was the one who got Dave into the sport of chariot racing. "I started racing around big tracks behind small horses in a little chariot in 1977," notes Sharon, who received many awards herself. Dave supported her in the sport, as well as mom Jessie who was the timer. "Dad, got the bug a few years later when my team ran away with him in the chariot," tells Sharon, "He stayed on and came back smiling. He loved the speed; and that was it – he was hooked." Dave was born in Kamloops Sept. 19, 1917, and spent his entire life in the Barriere area. He grew up with a love of the farm life, especially horses. In his younger days Dave loved the challenge of riding unbroke or spoiled horses, then when they weren’t any fun anymore (wouldn’t buck anymore) he would sell them and get a new one. His love of horses lasted a lifetime, and his taking up of the sport of chariot racing at the age of 60 just added to his list of equine accomplishments. Twice Dave was named sportsman of the year by his fellow drivers. Dave, Sharon and Jessie, participated in racing circuits that included Clinton, Williams Lake, Chilliwack, Prince George, the Okanagan, and of course Barriere for the annual North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo. Dave was a major supporter of the pony racing at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, not just as a driver and competitor, but also as an advocate for the sport, and for its growth at the event. He was very proud of his hometown chariot and chuckwagon races, and worked tirelessly with his family to improve the track, build barns, and support the event in any way he could. Sharon notes that there isn't much money in the sport; mostly it's a lifestyle, and the camaraderie and friendships that were made, make it all worthwhile. Sponsors help to keep the cost of racing manageable for the drivers, and Dave's chariot raced under the banner of the North

Dave Price, racing under the North Thompson Indian Band banner, competed at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo until his 84th year.

Jessie, Sharon, and Dave Price, after returning victorious from the B.C. Chariot and Chuckwagon Association Provincial Championships in 1994. Thompson Indian Band, now called Simpcw First Nation. Dave was an avid competitor, and as he advanced in age so did the numbers of his fan base. The grandstand at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo would rock with the cheers of the crowd whenever Dave raced his ponies; he was a spectator favourite and they let him know it! Sharon says she raced a 62 inch team, while her Dad raced with "slightly faster 54s". The racing Prices did run against each other on some circuits, but she says they enjoyed the Barriere event more because they were in separate categories. The father-daughter "grudge matches" never created animosity though, as Dave would jokingly say, "I had to let her beat me!" Sharon says Dave was always telling her to "plant her seat" in the chariot, not to" pop up like toast" and fall out! Dave continued to race his team at the North Thompson Fall Fair under the North Thompson Indian Band banner until 2001, just days before his 84th birthday. Dave was known for his love of horses, his inspiring “can do” example as a very senior chariot racer, his love of auctions, rodeo and dancing. And who can forget his sense of humour, caring and pride? Dave passed away at home on the farm on May 5, 2003; leaving a legacy of good sportsmanship, horsemanship, and fast hooves at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo.

NORTH THOMPSON FALL FAIR & RODEO ~ PROGRAM

A lifetime of volunteerism at the Fall Fair By Elli Kohnert For 63 years the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo has been presented by dedicated and hard working volunteers. One such volunteer is Jane Milburn, a constant supporter of the organization almost from it's inception, and a passionate advocate for agriculture and healthy living. Jane Millburn’s memories of the North Thompson Fall Fair go back to the times when it took place on land in Louis Creek at the Native Sons Hall. Her first contact with the Fair was before she was old enough to become a member, even to be a member of the 4H Club, she was only six. Jane recalls that she and her brother Alcide each entered a lamb; and says, "We did not know anything about sheep – so we washed them just before showing them – of course they were soaking wet and dripping all over the place; but I did win first and Alcide second." This was just the beginning of Jane’s enthusiasm and involvement with the Fair. Jane was 11-years-old when she joined the Boulder Mountain 4H Dairy Club in the early 1950’s, showing her calves at every Fair. She spoke about how attached she was to her calf saying, “I would never leave it alone, not even for ice-cream." Since Jane showed dairy calves, she did not worry about them being auctioned off for beef. Then there was the time when Jane learned the hard way to pay attention. She recalled, “ When the calf I was showing was getting close to the top of the class and the judge called me to go up, I didn't notice. Of course that put me out of the competition and I never forgot that." Those early years of showing at the Fair led up to the period when Jane became a volunteer, working in a number of different areas of the fair. Jane was leader of the 4H Dairy Section for many years, and said that she enjoyed it very much. “I carried on until we ran out of kids, which was really disappointing." A Fall Fair member since she was old enough to join, Jane was ready to volunteer for the Fall Fair in one of the sections. At that time, a treasurer position was vacant, but that was not for her. She told the directors that she would take the Dairy section instead. Jane carried on with the Dairy section for many years, but when Don Piper retired from the Field Crop section, she took it and helped Karl Rainer with the Dairy section. The Fall Fair was almost like family to her, said Jane, “I don’t think I ever missed a Fall Fair. There was not only the volunteer work, but also the events that I enjoyed, especially those that took place in earlier times. There was the Old Timers Flat Race. It was a horse race, not practiced or for awards, speed was all that counted; it was such fun to watch. The Ball Games were great too; the players were all from around the area.” When asked what she thought about the changes that have

occurred to the Fall Fair over the years? Jane thought for awhile, and then commented, "We just have to keep up with the times. We have a great Fair that is well known and enjoyed by people from the valley and beyond.” Jane was then asked if she ever considered not volunteering at the Fair? Quickly she answered with only one word “NO”!

Fun at the Fall Fair If you like rodeo you'll know what bull riding is. Ever wondered if you could stay on the back of a bull for eight seconds? Now's your chance to try – find Diablo, the mechanical bull across from the Fall Fair Office and the beer garden. Diablo can be a gentleman with the youngsters, but give him a chance and he'll really show his stuff for the cowboys. Tickets can be purchased at the Information Booth or the Amusement Ticket Booth close to the Climbing Wall. Youngsters will find oodles of fun on the super slide, the bouncy castle, or other amusements before they head over to the Interior Savings Children's Educational Activity Tent – a place where they can have piles of fun learning about agriculture. You'll find the Children's Educational Activity Tent across from the Information Booth, and in the vicinity of the Outdoor Entertainment Stage. This year, one lucky youngster can win a five foot tall teddy bear each day of the fair at the Activity tent, and on Monday they can have their picture taken on a lifesized wooden horse and go home with a cowboy hat. While the kids play, mom and dad can sit back in the shade and enjoy the great lineup of entertainment on the outdoor stage. You'll find non stop entertainment with something for everyone, from adults to kids. Also find BINGO on Friday, at 6:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Fall Fair Hall just south of the food court area.

NTFFRA Ambassador Program 2012 Another year of the North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo Ambassador Program (previously called the Pageant) will soon be at another turning point as our reigning 2011/2012 Royalty hand down their crowns to the 2012/2013 winners. This year's Ambassador Committee was kept busy, both with attending functions with the current Royalty, and working with our six new candidates for 2013. Since early spring the candidates have been attending classes in dancing, speech, basic car maintenance, time management, agricultural, self-defence, Fall Fair and area history, horsemanship skills, and so much more. The Candidates and reigning Royalty have also attended numerous community functions, and travelled to several Pageants or Coronations held in other communities. As this program goes to press the Candidates are now preparing for their final appearance where we will be crowning the next North Thompson Fall Fair & Rodeo Royalty. It will be held on the Labour Day weekend, Thursday, Aug. 30, at the District of Barriere Municipal Hall (The Ridge) at 6:30 p.m. The Pageant committee would like thank everyone that has helped in this program for both past and current years. Without these dedicated volunteer’s and supporters we would not have this program. Thank you so much.

NORTH THOMPSON FALL FAIR & RODEO ~ PROGRAM

Celebrate rodeo at this year's Fair:

Bareback riding involves the horse carrying rigging with a suitcase style handle only, and no head gear.

MEDIA ESTEEM

Rodeo, or stampedes, began as friendly competitions between cowboys when ranchers and ranch hands gathered for picnics and race meets. The competitions were almost all based on the day to day work of the cowboy, which involved roping, riding wild horses, handling rough stock, and understanding cattle and horses. The British Columbia Rodeo Association (BCRA) was formed in 1988 when three associations within the province, the Interior Rodeo Association, Yellowhead Cowboys Association and the Vancouver Island Rodeo Association joined forces to become the primary governing body of rodeo in British Columbia. The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo hosts three days of BCRA rodeo every year during our annual fall event. Our theme at the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo this year is 'Bulls, Boots, and Broncs. here's some information about the bulls and bronc events in our BCRA rodeo. • Bareback riding involves the horse carrying rigging with a suitcase style handle, which is all the cowboy has to hang onto. Bareback riding is the wildest and most physically demanding of the the three rough stock events in rodeo. The rider is judged on his spurring technique, from the point of the horse's shoulder back to the rigging - the degree his toes are turned out during the ride, and his ability to lay back onto his horse. The wilder, the better. A continued on next page.....

NORTH THOMPSON FALL FAIR & RODEO ~ PROGRAM

Our theme is 'Bulls, Boots & Broncs cowboy will be disqualified for not staying on for the full eight seconds, missing his horse out (not having both feet over the point of the shoulder when the horse's front feet hit the ground on the first jump out of the chute), or double grabbing (taking hold of the rigging with both hands). The ride is scored by two judges, each giving the horse and the cowboy a score out of 25 points, for a total score of 100. • Saddle bronc riding is the 'classic' event of rodeo, evolved from cowboys breaking colts on ranches. The most technical event in rodeo, it requires timing and fluid control. The rider must mark his horse out (both feet over the point of the shoulder when the horse's front feet hit the ground on the first jump out of the chute). A halter, thick rein, and an association saddle (built to the guidelines of the governing association) are the main equipment. A rider must spur from the point of the shoulder to the back of the saddle. The smoother and more consistent the spurring, the higher the score. Disqualification occurs if the rider touches his horse or equipment with his free hand, doesn't mark his horse out, or is bucked off before the eight seconds elapse. The ride is scored out of 100 points by two judges, each giving the cowboy and horse a score out of 25 points apiece. • Bull riding is considered to be the most dangerous and most popular rodeo event among spectators. The bulls average 1,500 to 1,800 pounds, and the cowboys average 130 to 175 pounds - not quite even odds. A ride lasts eight seconds and is scored out of 100 points by two judges. Each judge scores the bull and the cowboy out of 25 points each. Control on the cowboy's part is the main ingredient to last the full eight seconds, but spurring will get a higher score. A rider rides one-handed with a braided rope around the bull's girth, and with his free hand in the air. Disqualification will result if the cowboy touches

Bull riding is considered to be the most dangerous and most popular rodeo event.
