Welcome to the Kitsap County Fair & Stampede! There’s plenty to see and do at this year’s Kitsap County Fair & Stampede The fair, which takes place August 2226, features daily shows, carnival rides, a rodeo and even a demolition derby. The annual event takes place to educate, entertain and create a better quality of life in Kitsap and the surrounding areas, according to its website. Along with all the entertainment offered, the fair exists to teach children historical lessons and consumers more about where their agricultural products come from. The fair’s first big event takes place August 22 at 6:30 p.m. when the Xtreme Bulls Rodeo kicks things off at the Thunderbird Arena. On Thursday-Saturday, the arena will host a PRCA pro rodeo that features eight events over the three nights. Saturday night is Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night, where attendees are encouraged to wear pink and all proceeds are donated to a local breast cancer non-profit. Rodeo events start each evening at about 6:30 p.m.

Country artist Jessie Leigh will be the featured artist on Friday night. Leigh has opened for a number of major acts, including Kenny Chesney and Craig Campbell. The main show on Saturday will be performed by Dakota Poorman, a singersongwriter from the Pacific Northwest who plays songs about drinking beer, having a good time and slow-dancing the night away. Daily entertainment includes carnival rides provided by Davis Amusements near Gordon Field, as well as a kiddie carnival near the West Hills Auto Plex Center Stage. According to the fair, more than 100 acts will perform across four stages, and they include local performers as well as world-class acts.

Music is another big attraction for the fair, and this year is no different.

FAIR HISTORY

The first Kitsap County Fair took place in 1923 in Port Orchard, about 15 miles from the current fairgrounds. By 1929, the fair featured more than 1,000 exhibitors. Today, that has grown to more than 6,000, and 80,000 people visit the fair each year. In 1958, the fair moved to Bremerton. In 1960, the fair began raising funds for the Thunderbird Arena, which held 12,000 people when completed. Today, the arena features covered grandstands and seats about 5,000.

The Kitsap County Fair & Stampede is a fun-filled week-long event to enjoy with family and friends at home and out of town. Celebrate one the most popular county fair’s in WA State. Visit our website for a wide-range of places to stay!

Line dancing team to perform nightly Borderline PNW Country Dance Team set to step up at the fair By LUCIANO MARANO Bainbridge Island Review

According to “Christy Lane’s Complete Book of Line Dancing,” the exact origins of the synchronized dance floor staple are shrouded in mystery. “If you were to ask 10 people with some knowledge of when line dancing began, you’d probably get 10 different answers,” the nationally acclaimed dance instructor wrote. Those answers would vary wildly, too. Some will tell you it originated in the 1800s, when European immigrants traveled west to North America, bringing with them native dances like the polka and waltz, which eventually evolved into what

was first called round and square dancing and eventually line dancing. Others will say it was the cowboys on the ragged edge of the western frontier who morphed those traditional European styles into what we know today. Still others will say it was born when schools began to include folk dancing in their physical education programs. Many believe that American servicemen returning home from World War I influenced the spread of the Americanized style after being introduced to actual European folk dances while abroad. Whatever the toe-tapping truth of the matter, the ladies of the Borderline PNW Country Dance Team just say it’s fun. “The origination of line dancing, it’s up in the air,” said Lindsay Stamp, Borderline co-founder and spokeswoman. “I think really what it comes down to about any kind of dance, it comes from a lot of different places, but it’s definitely not a strictly country thing.” Borderline’s set list of course includes classic country hits by Garth Brooks,

Chris LeDoux and Blake Shelton, but also, Stamp said, the likes of AC/DC, Mötley Crüe and Bruno Mars. “If it’s music, we love it and we’ll dance to it,” she said. “We’re a country group absolutely, we love our country music, but we’ll line dance to just about anything.” The eight-member dance team, founded in October 2017, is going to bring their “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” stylings to the 2018 Kitsap County Fair & Stampede’s Cowboy Corral Stage nightly, from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22 through Saturday, Aug. 25. Though they are best known for their bi-weekly instructional sessions, held at McCloud’s Grill House in Bremerton, their four-day run at the fair the group will be more focused on entertaining than educating. “This one’s going to be a performance,” Stamp said. “High energy, lots of fun,

we’re just going to try to get the crowd amped up before getting into the rodeo so they can have a good time.” There are actually several line dance groups in Washington, Stamp said, hers being perhaps the youngest on the scene. “I didn’t know that until I did a little more research into it,” Stamp said. “I’ve been line dancing since I was 19, and McCloud’s Grill House … where we do our lessons is where a lot of us will gather to dance almost every Friday, Saturday night and [we wanted] to bring it out of that club/bar setting and share it with everybody – really get it out there. “Dancing is something that’s so much fun,” she added. “It’s good for your health. It’s good for your brain. It’s good for everything.” Visit www.facebook.com/pg/ BorderlineDanceTeam to learn more.

Professional rodeo comes to Kitsap

Come out and see some of the top professional rodeo riders as they compete nightly in the Thunderbird Arena.

At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, a onenight-only event called Xtreme Bulls will feature some of the top bull riders in the nation as they compete for a $10,000 purse and a chance to earn points toward the final Xtreme Bulls competition. The Xtreme Bulls tour showcases some of PRCA’s top bulls, and some of the riders are a part of the PRCA World Standings. In the Xtreme Bulls events, each

from Thursday-Saturday. Here’s a list of some of the events that will take place.

BAREBACK RIDING Each rider climbs on a horse in the bucking shoot. When the rider is ready, the gate opens and the horse races out. The rider tries to stay on the horse for eight seconds without touching it with his free hand. Riders are scored on a scale of 0-50, as are the horses. Scores in the 80s are good, while scores in the 90s are outstanding.

STEER WRESTLING Xtreme Bulls takes place Wednesday at Thunderbird Arena. File photo

rider competes in the first round. Top performers go to the next round. The winner has the best average of both rounds. Earnings for this event count

toward qualifying for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. After the bulls are put away, the PRCA Rodeo takes place at 6:30 p.m.

The horse and rider wait until the steer runs out of the chute. After that, they chase the animal until the rider jumps off his horse in an attempt to wrestle the steer to the ground. Professional times are typically in the 3-to-10-second range, and the steers weigh between 450-650 pounds. See RODEO, Page 7

RODEO

Continued from page 6 TEAM ROPING Two riders work together to rope a steer by both the head and heel in the shortest amount of time. It’s the only rodeo event where men and women compete against each other in both single-gender and mixed-gender teams.

SADDLE BRONC RIDING Similar to bareback riding, this event lets the rider use a saddle.

TIE-DOWN ROPING A rider attempts to throw a loop around a calf’s neck, dismount from the horse and restrain the animal by tying three legs together in the shortest amount of time possible.

BARREL RACING The horse and rider do a cloverleaf pattern around barrels. Primarily an event for women, it combines the horse’s athletic abilities with the horsemanship of the rider.

Rodeo Royalty: Olympic High Schooler is 2018 Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede By LUCIANO MARANO Bainbridge Island Review

Varona Washburn and Payton BurlingameAvery are this year’s rodeo royalty. File photo

This ain’t no mere beauty contest, buckaroo. Poulsbo’s Vanora Washburn, 17, daughter of Doug and Kim Washburn, rose head and shoulders – and a big ol’ cowgirl hat – above the competition to be named the 2018 Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede. “Becoming Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life,” Vanora said. “Between the friends I have made, the places I have traveled, the experiences I have had and the amazing Queen Board I have gotten to work with … this year has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede is the yearly official ambassador for the Kitsap County Fair & Stampede, promoting Western heritage and the

sport of rodeo in the surrounding communities. Under the help and guidance of Matt Olson Training, Vanora is able to compete primarily in the American Quarter Horse Association, doing some of her favorite events such as ranch riding, reining, showmanship, barrel racing and the working cow horse. She also competes in local Washington State Horseman shows and junior rodeos. She will be a senior at Olympic High School this fall and, after graduation, said she plans to major in political science and then further her education and attend law school. Her career ambition is to become a public interest lawyer. Vanora said that as a role model and mentor she hopes to encourage other girls to pursue their dreams while promoting and representing the

Kitsap County Fair & Stampede, the sport of rodeo and “the Western way of life.” Vanora is not alone, however, in repping the rodeo this year. Payton Burlingame-Avery, 7 years old, was chosen as the 2018 Miss Katie Kitsap in October 2017. As Miss Katie Kitsap, Payton has gained hands-on experience by shadowing her elder counterpart as they promote the Kitsap County Fair & Stampede and the sport of rodeo, event officials said. Payton’s favorite color is blue. When she grows up, she reportedly wants to be a professional barrel racer. Also, she would like to own a farm where she can teach kids about animals and farm life.

Crash, bang, smash ‘em up 21 questions with a derby driver The always popular Kitsap Destruction Derby will return as part of this year’s Kitsap County Fair & Stampede at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 26. We caught up with destruction derby driver Dan Pieze for 21 questions about derby racing before the fair’s famous fender-bender extravaganza. Pieze, a member of the Kitsap Destruction Derby Association, is a regular racer at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. The fair derby is the last one before the season finale for the racers on Sept. 15, and the August show is their chance to introduce the sport to others, Pieze said. “We try to give the crowd a little bit of everything we do.”

Q: How long have you been a derby driver?

MAY 2016

The destruction derby is at 1 p.m. Sunday.

A: It was a Chrysler Cordoba, from the mid-‘70s. Q: Do you remember your first race? A: Oh, let me think. It was in Bremerton. The first year of racing was just going out and just trying to stay alive and not really winning anything until the second year of racing. Q: Did your car last for long? A: That one lasted about half the season. It lasted a couple of race days. Then you get to build another one. From then on, I ran a lot of Chevy Impalas. Q: Chevy Impalas? A: We ran the mid ‘70s ones; we ran the big, ugly boats. Q: What do you drive now? A: A Cadillac from the early ‘70s. ’72 Coupe de Ville. For about two years I’ve been driving the Cadillacs. Q: Why that type? A: They seem to be the good car to build nowadays, being what you can find that are around. They’re a good strong car. Q: Where do you find cars to race? A: A lot of times the local wrecking yards will turn you on to cars that are wrecked

spin out. … A lot like how the police officers are trained.

Continued from page 10 but well-built – before they get ground up and sent to Japan. A lot of them are very worn out and they need to be destroyed, but some of them aren’t that bad. Q: Cost much? A: Every single car [from the 1970s] is worth a good $300 anymore. Back in the day, we’d get running cars for dang near free. Q: Is there a number on your car? Why that number? A: I do. Everybody gets to pick their number at some point as long as it’s not spoken for. The number I run is my family number; our number ever since the early ‘80s. No. 15. Q: Paint job? A: My cars have always been black with a two-tone of teal color. Q: Teal and black? A: The teal color comes from my main sponsor, Dana’s Heating & Cooling; they have the color teal on their trucks. Black is always a color I’ve raced with.

Q: Is it hard to get car insurance as a derby driver? Does your insurance guy give you grief about the number of crashes you’ve been in? A: It hasn’t been. I’ve carried only two different insurance agents in my whole career of driving. They don’t give me any grief at all … they actually go and watch the races. I’m actually a very safe driver. Q: Is the Malachi Crunch a real thing? A: No, I’ve never heard of that. Dan Pieze’s car competes at a previous destruction derby. File photo

Q: What’s your everyday car? A: Just a Silverado pickup. Q: What’s the secret sauce for being a good derby driver? A: Patience. There’s a lot of stuff going on while you are out there, a lot of chaos. Somebody with a bit more patience looks around the track a bit and gives themselves some space can see trouble ahead.

Q: Some sports and athletes are famous for superstitions. Are you the same way? A: No, I don’t particularly have anything. Q: Are there any special moves or techniques that most drivers rely on? A: There’s definitely some key factors if there’s a car in front of you and you want to get in front without damaging your car, or without making your car stop or slow down. How to make another car

Q: There was an episode of “Happy Days” where the Fonz was racing in a demolition derby with his girlfriend “Pinky” Tuscadero and everyone was warned to look out for the Malachi brothers and their Malachi Crunch. They would T-bone a car from both sides. They were going to give Pinki the Malachi Crunch but the episode was a cliffhanger, and you had to tune in next Tuesday to see if Fonzie saved Pinky. A: I can definitely remember the show; I’m only 42. I haven’t seen that episode.

Lumberjack show echoes Kitsap’s logging past By BOB SMITH

Port Orchard Independent

When a four-man team of tree climbers starts crawling up tall poles during this year’s lumberjack show at the Kitsap County Fair & Stampede, their performances will echo sounds of this forested peninsula’s past life. This crew of performers — part of the Vancouver Island-based West Coast Lumberjack Show — will perform four times daily at the fairgrounds Aug. 22-26 in front of folks who may have a hankering for a step back to those days when loggers used brawn and their working lifetime of knowledge in the forest to harvest trees. The four lumberjacks hail from regions you might expect — the hinterlands of Vancouver Island, Montana and northern Ontario. While the affinity to local lumberjack history is a draw for visitors, the show’s owner, Darren Dean, said others come with an inkling that there just might be a chance to witness a jack’s misstep while shimmying up a pole, or see an axe land on a foot or hand instead of a log.

“It’s one of those things that people come to see, thinking there might be a chance for an accident,” Dean said before laughing. “But we very rarely have any major accidents. Everyone competes, and they are professionals. “Accidents are rare, however. If the average person went to try to do it themselves, it could come out differently,” he quipped. Despite the lure of danger, the lumberjack shows are, in fact, family friendly. Dean said plenty of humor has been incorporated into the performances “to keep everyone entertained.” “It’s not just a bunch of guys swinging axes,” he said. “There’s a fun side, as well.” Lumberjacks of years past would have at their ready sharp-bladed axes to cut trees for a burgeoning Pacific Northwest. These strong-armed men used muscle power to down stretches of forest into timber, which would later be shaped into lumber used for buildings, homes and seagoing ships. They did it without the benefit of mechanized chain saws and other modern innovations that made the task of logging safer, faster and easier. Today, logging is

performed in assembly-line fashion, with mobile cranes and tree cutters, hoists and automated tree strippers. Those lumberjacks of yore enjoyed their downtime, though, and on occasion challenged each other to a race to the top of a tree, a session of log rolling on the lake, or see who was the most accurate axe thrower. The tradition continues today, although competition is now an organized affair for the benefit of audiences throughout Canada and the U.S. Dean, who said he is the “do-everything guy” for the show, is on the road with his four-man crew for up to six months a year. This is their first year at the Kitsap County Fair, although he said they have made a few appearances in previous years in nearby Port Gamble. The West Coast Lumberjack Show’s scheduled fair appearances will be posted on the Kitsap County Fair website (www. kitsapgov.com/parks/Pages/FairMain) and on readerboards on the fairgrounds.

Sheriff K-9 unit to perform demonstrations By TYLER SHUEY Kitsap News Group

BREMERTON — The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Department will be hosting a K-9 show at the Kitsap County Fair from Aug. 22-26. The demonstrations will be held every day of the fair at 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. behind Presidents’ Hall of the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. The mission of the K-9 Unit is to locate suspects and evidence at or near crime scenes and to provide protection and backup for officers when possible and practical. They also participate in public education and demonstrations. The unit consists of two tracking/protection dogs. The K-9 handlers and their partners undergo an exhaustive training regimen upon entrance to the program, and continue to train on a weekly basis to maintain a high level of proficiency. “It’s one of those things that have evolved into a tradition,” Deputy Scott Wilson said. “Not long after the K-9 program was established, we thought this would be a great idea to put on demonstra-

the K-9 both on and off leash. “These dogs are not ferocious beasts; the dog is a member of our agency,” Wilson said. “They are, for the most part, outgoing and friendly animals. Their job is to do the task for whatever their mission is, whether it’s narcotics or tracking.” The sheriff’s department’s two tracking K-9s are Titan and Heiko. Titan is handled by Deputy Joe Hedstrom and Heiko is handled by Deputy Aaron Baker. There are also two K-9s in training, both of which were at the show at last year’s fair and will be again at this year’s fair. Blue and his littermate, Jax, were sired by Titan. Blue got his name from the color of a collar used to distinguish him from his siblings. Jax is named in honor of one of Hedstrom’s dogs, Ajax, who served with the officer from 2008 until his retirement in 2012 after being injured in the line of duty. Baker and Hedstrom are each housing and training the two puppies themselves. If and when the current dogs retire, the two young ones could be next in line for service.

BREMERTON — The Kitsap 4-H Club is preparing for the Kitsap County Fair & Stampede, where its members will have the opportunity to exhibit skills they have learned throughout the year. The Kitsap County Fair & Stampede, which will take place August 22-26, affords new opportunities each day for the 4-H members to participate. The 4-H program is a national organization that promotes youth development and community. They currently have nearly 6 million members nationwide, with over 500,000 adult volunteers and staff to support the members, according to the 4-H’s website. Kitsap 4-H is a partnership between Kitsap County, Washington State University, community members, volunteers and the members, all sharing the same goal of broadening the experiences of 4-Hers. Fairgoers will have the opportunity to experience what 4-H truly does. At the fair, members will exhibit livestock, demonstrate horseback riding, pho-

hosting a “4-H in Action” session, where the young people put on a 30-minute presentation to demonstrate a skill they have learned through the 4-H club, such as sewing, quilting and other life skills. Starting on the Thursday of the fair, there will be four different types of shooting competitions for both rifle and archery — for both teams and individuals. This event also gives members time to showcase their artistic side, with space being allowed for artwork and crafting. These pieces could be art such as paintings, leatherwork or pottery. There are over 100 sub-categories for artwork, 4-H organizers said. When showcasing livestock, there are 15 different types that the members can exhibit, each with its own unique rules and standards. Each animal shown at the fair is required to go through a vet screening before being allowed into the buildings. The 4-H members who place at the top in their respective categories will get the opportunity to compete at the state level and participate in the state fair during September.
