The Blaine County Fair Foundation was incorporated the end of November, 2016. The Fair Board created the organization to accept gifts that could go directly to help with improvements to the fairground facilities. Dale Williams, a fair board member and architect of the foundation, said, “We incorporated the foundation the end of last year and recently received certification from the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.” That allows donors to take an income tax deduction for a gift to the new foundation. Fair Board Chairman Don Richman said, “I know some folks are looking for tax deductions this time of year. A gift to the new Blaine County Fair Foundation would provide a tax deduction and, more importantly from the Fair Board’s view, help make improvements to the fairgrounds.” The board intends that all gifts to the foundation will be used on projects at the fairgrounds. Williams said, “A few years ago a local group called Boots and Pearls wanted to equip the new Commercial Building’s kitchen. The only way they could give equipment to the Fair Board was to buy everything, then donate the equipment. Through the new foundation a financial donation can be made directly for equipment or services toward a designated project.” One of the major projects being considered by the Fair Board is the erection of an indoor arena. Some time ago the county received a new, surplus metal building through a program at Malmstrom Air Base in Great Falls. Several local horse enthusiasts have been discussing ways to raise money to erect the building with plans to extend their season. Promoters of the arena idea learned that many grants, that might fund such a project, had to be run through a non-government and tax exempt organization. The new foundation will fill that requirement. For local donors, Williams explained, “The foundation will allow people to designate how they want a gift to the foundation to be used. Since the indoor arena could be used by several different groups and for a variety of purposes, groups and donors wanting to specifically support that effort can use the foundation.” The 100 by 200 foot building is currently stored at a county site referred to as ‘the old poor farm.’ For readers desiring to make a tax-deductible gift to the Blaine County Fair Foundation, send the donation to the foundation at P.O. Box 1207, Chinook, MT 59523. If the donation is designated to a particular project or purpose, be sure to note that. You can also get additional information from Wendy Warburton, Fair Board Secretary, or any of the board members: Don Richman; Dale Williams; John Skoyen; Loren Skoyen and Mike Copenhaver.

Ted & Annette Powell honored for commitment to the Blaine County Fair
Each year the Blaine County Fair Board dedicates the fair premium book to a person, or persons, who made significant contributions to assure a successful and continuing Blaine County Fair. This year the honor went to Annette and Ted Powell for their role in donating materials, and know how, to improve the arena grounds. Board Chair Don Richman said, “In the 12 years I’ve served on the Fair Board the Powells have donated thousands of dollars in sand and gravel to improve the arena.” Ted Powell grew up on a ranch south of Chinook. He met Annette, who was from Malta, at a rodeo at Mobridge (an area near the Fred Robinson Bridge south of Malta). Ted said he was always interested in rodeos and that mutual interest brought the two together. A few years later, in the late 1960’s, Ted explained, “We started a roping club. We would rope twice a week and sometimes 60-70 teams would show up.” Eventually the roping club evolved into a rodeo club. In the 70’s and 80’s there was a lot of interest and folks began to volunteer labor and resources to improve the arena and the areas around it—building the announcer’s booth, the pens for the roping stock and fences around the area. The annual PRCA Bear Paw Roundup, according to Ted, got its start through the interest generated by the earlier roping and rodeo clubs. In the early 1970’s the Jaycees organized a demolition derby. For the derby the arena would have a safety berm around it, then all the material would be pushed out after the derby. Ted said, “The berm would be removed but also some of the dirt on the floor of the arena. Eventually the arena was not draining adequately, it was like a lake if we got a lot of rain. I told the Fair Board that I was willing to donate enough material, sand and gravel, if they would stick to a plan to put a crown on the arena so it would drain properly.” Ted added, “I think we are just about there but it took several years and a lot of material to make it happen. A couple of years ago a really nasty wet spell resulted in the need to haul in of 80 loads of gravel and sand, at 20 yards each load, to get the arena in shape for the Bear Paw Roundup. That was all donated material and donated transportation. With the addition of all the new material, and keeping it in the arena after the demolition derby, the crown is beginning to move the water off the arena. Chairman Richman said, “When I first came on the board the barrel racers were threatening to never come back because the arena was in such poor shape. Now the barrel racers tell me it’s one of the best for barrel competitions.” Board Member John Skoyen added, “Ted was very involved in rodeos. He had an idea about the causes of the problem and some solutions. He not only gave a lot of gravel and sand, he contributed his know how to make the Blaine County arena one of the best.” The Fair Board thanks Ted and Annette for their generosity and support of the Blaine County Fair and dedicates this year’s premium book to them.

CANNED FOODS GENERAL RULES Read ALL rules to ensure safety, along with tips for exhibiting entries correctly. Safety is the primary consideration when judging preserved foods. Attractiveness of the product is secondary. Current USDA processing guidelines must be followed for ALL food preservation entries. ALL canned foods must have been prepared during the last year by the exhibitor, and have never been exhibited before. If, in the opinion of the judge, Department Superintendent, or County Extension Agent, exhibits are deemed incorrectly processed and/or unsafe, they will not be permitted to compete. Canning Methods: There are ONLY two accepted methods of canning food safely: Boiling Water Bath and Pressure Canning. Open kettle processing is NOT acceptable for ANY product. Boiling water method is safe for canning high-acid foods such as pickled vegetables, and fruits (including jams and jellies). Pressure canning is the ONLY safe method of canning low-acid foods such as meat and vegetables, including tomatoes (unless properly acidified with lemon juice or citric acid). Canning Jars, Lids, Bands: Only use clear, clean, approved standard canning jars (i.e. Ball, Kerr, etc.)- no odd jars will be accepted. Must use NEW two-piece lids. Bands can be reused IF as long as they are unbent, . Remove jar bands, clean carefully, then replace band for exhibiting. The proper jar size must be used since some low-acid foods cannot be safely canned in quart jars. Cleanliness of jars is imperative- wash carefully at home. Headspace, Seals: The appropriate headspace must be followed. Any jars that are not properly sealed and/or showing any signs of spoilage will be disqualified. Packs: The term “Pack” describes the method used for preparing and placing food in the jar prior to sealing and processing the jar. The pack plays an important role in the heat transfer throughout the product, and thus the overall safety of the product. The type of pack, raw or hot, depends on the product being processed. Fancy packs are
generally discouraged because they are impractical and can interfere with the intended heat penetration during the canning process. Fancy packing is the vertical or horizontal layering of foods for a desired visual effect. The only “practical” use for a fancy pack is for display purposes. Labels: All canned foods must be labeled on the bottom of jar with: contents, date processed, processing method (pressure or boiling water bath), processing time, pounds of pressure (if relevant), and type of pack used (if relevant) or they will be disqualified. Entries shouls also be accompanied by the recipe used. (A judge need to know if the proper amounts of citric acid, lemon juice, or vinegar has been added; or whether certain foods have meat, low acid vegetables, starches, etc. were added.) Judging: All canned foods should be judged according to the National Center for Home Food Preservation guidelines/rubric. For a full explanation of specific criteria for each type of canned food, see Appendix D of the NCHFP “Judging Home Preserved Foods” manual (also found on the Blaine County, MSU Extension website). It is recommended that judges not taste home canned foods. Not all spoilage can be detected by human senses. The only canned foods that can be tasted, if the judge chooses to do so, are jellies, jams and other fruit preserves made with high concentrations of sugar or flavored vinegars. Any foods opened during judging will be marked by the judges and should not be eaten when the fair is over, and should be discarded.
Headspace for meats and seafood should be 1 inch; poultry and rabbit should have a 1 ¼ inch headspace. Seafood is to be canned in half-pint or pint jars ONLY. Scorecard: Pack Quality of Product Quality of Liquid Container Total pts.

DEPARTMENT ‘’T’’ FLOWERS
Rosalie Perrine – Superintendent REGULATIONS: Entries in this Department are accepted from 8:00 to 10:00am on Saturday. Exhibitors are to obtain an Entry Number from the Fair Office on Friday and complete one Entry Tag for each item being entered (called a lot number). Each exhibitor gets one Entry Number for all entries; the entry number obtained for flower entries is also used for every other Department. Judging is open to the public beginning at 11:00 a.m. Saturday. A Rosette will be awarded for the most outstanding exhibit in each class. Two “People’s Choice” Ribbons are awarded in the overall Junior Division and overall Adult Division. Monetary prizes are awarded for blue, red and white ribbons. All exhibits to be removed by 4 pm Sunday. All exhibits not picked up will be disposed of. HINTS TO EXHIBITORS: If plant material is to hold up through the exhibition period, it is suggested you cut flowers the day before showing. Cutting should be done in the late afternoon, around 4 p.m., to get the greatest amount of sugar in the leaves. Cut stems cleanly at an angle with a sharp knife. After cutting, immediately plunge the flowers into 110 degree water to overcome any temporary wilting. Then set the flowers in a dark place (60 degrees is ideal for cut flowers) out of a draft and let the water cool to room temperature. This enables the flowers to regain their turgidity and last much longer. All foliage (such as leaves) that is below the waterline has to be removed to avoid fouling the water. Also, remove any broken, diseased or disfigured petals/foliage. Asters, Dahlias and Roses are best cut just before their full center shows. Since buds count as flowers in a display, remove them leaving one flower per stem. Flowers on branches with wood stems, such as Phlox, Stocks, Roses, and Chrysanthemums should be split, crushed or pounded before plunging in water. Any flowers with a milky or colorless fluid in their stems, such as Peony, Poppy,
Dahlia, Euphorbia, Hollyhock, may be seared with a flame or the stem end placed in boiling water for several minutes to prepare them for showing. (Protect the blossom end by gently wrapping in newspaper.) Sweet Peas show best when the stems are long and have the largest number of blossoms per stem. Zinnias should be picked when in full blossom, dipped first in hot water through a hole in a newspaper and put in deep, cool water. The following definitions are used to explain entry guidelines: Bloom: Individual flower terminating in a stem. Spike: Florets attached directly to the main axis at close intervals. Spray: Side-flowering growth consisting of one stem with or without a central flower. Stem: More than one flower carried by one stem and does not have a separate stem growing from the main stem. RULES: Each exhibit must contain no more or no less than the number of stems specified in each lot number. Entries that do not adhere to the number of stems will be disqualified and deemed “Display only.” Horticultural entries must be grown by the exhibitor. Fresh or dried flowers in designs need not be grown by the exhibitor. No artificial flowers, artificial greenery, or noxious weeds are permitted. A rosette ribbon will be awarded to Junior Division horticulture, Junior Division Artistic, Adult Horticulture, Adult Design and Adult Class 4.

It includes junior as well as open class exhibitors. All classes of livestock offered at the livestock event are included: cattle, equine, sheep, swine, llamas and other specialty animals, poultry, rabbits and any other livestock classes offered. The Blaine County Livestock Committee has adopted the National Show Ring Code of Ethics as the guidelines governing the care, fitting, preparation and showing of all classes of animals. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to obtain a copy of, read, understand and adhere to these rules. These rules will be provided to exhibitors at the time of entry at the fair or can be
obtained from the Blaine County Fair office or the Blaine County Extension Office at any time. The following practices or procedures are unacceptable and are defined as being deceptive, fraudulent, unethical, and inhumane in the care fitting, preparation and showing of all classes of livestock. The use of any illegal drugs is prohibited. Legal or illegal substances used to phenotypically alter the appearance of an animal entered in livestock events are prohibited. Use of illegal drugs is considered a premeditated act! Furthermore, any information obtained in the practice of illegal alteration of an animal will be turned over to the proper authorities for criminal prosecution. The exhibitor will forfeit any premium, awards, or auction proceeds, and will be subject to criminal prosecution if proven guilty. “ONE STRIKE” AND YOU’RE OUT POLICY!
Possible civil penalties may be imposed by the proper authorities based on evidence provided by the livestock show of exhibitors in violation of the federal food, drug and cosmetic act or the animal mistreatment, neglect and abandonment laws that apply on the local, state and national levels. A Livestock Show Committee of five (5) individuals will be selected by the 4-H Livestock Committee to determine if an animal is unmanageable or if other serious infractions against the rules are made. The committee's purpose is to assist youth livestock exhibitors, enforce the rules and maintain order in the barns. The committee reserves the right to interpret rules and arbitrarily settle all differences and questions not adequately addressed by the above ethics and rules. Decisions of the Livestock Show Committee will be carried out by the county agent and/or the FFA Advisor(s). Exhibitors must lead and be in control of their animals for the 4-H Livestock Show Committee. Reminder – If you cannot control your animal such that you physically lose
control of the animal three times you and your animal will be disqualified from the Market Livestock Sale. Any member who is cited for other rule infractions will be put on the bottom of the sale order, unless sent home. Any violation of the "National Show Ring Code of Ethics" or other specific rules as designated by the Blaine County Fair shows will result in forfeiture of premiums and awards, disqualification, and may result in probationary status and/or loss of eligibility for future participation in organized livestock competition.

Future Farmers of America Creed
I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds - 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 come to us from the struggles of former years. I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny. I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil. I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so--for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me. I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.
