t’s that time of year – the Ray County Fair is back for its 44th year. I would like to start by thanking all of the hard-working fair board members and their families who volunteer many hours of their time and energy to bring us a great fair each and every year. This is not only the ones you see, but also the ones that spend time year round and behind the scenes. I would also like to say a special “THANK YOU” to all the sponsors and the community for their wonderful support of our efforts to bring a quality fair. Our volunteers take pride in bringing you a quality fair. If you are interested in volunteering your time and know how, please ask a current member. This year’s fair starts Friday, July 12, with a Kick-off Night. This will include a live band for dancing or just sitting and listening. On Saturday, July 13, the morning will start out with a car, motorcycle and tractor show. The evening will follow with the Super Teen contest. The standard events through the week include 4-H and FFA projects on display at the Eagleton Center and outside the FFA/4-H Building on the fairgrounds. The livestock and small animal shows will also be throughout the week. On Tuesday, July 16, will be the Ham Breakfast and Auction. This breakfast includes country cured ham, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, plus juice and coffee for $5. The breakfast starts at 6:30 a.m., with the ham auction to follow. On Wednesday, July 17, Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual will Farmers Appreciation Dinner. This dinner is open to all area farmers. After dinner will be the Ray County 4-H/FFA Livestock Auction. This auction is where area businesses really show their support of the area 4-H/FFA youth. Please come out and help support the local youth. On Friday, July 19, will be the Horse Raceo. This event is held at the Richard Swope Arena located on the fairgrounds. On Saturday, July 20, the fair will conclude with the Demolition Derby. The derby has some more changes in order to bring a fun and entertaining show for you. Again, I must say sorry for not having a tractor pull. We are still searching for one that works in our time frame. We’ll keep searching. Some of you may have seen a flyer about being a Ray County Fair supporter. We are a not-for-profit organization. We are striving to continue to have a place for area youth to showcase their crafts and livestock. At this time we are reaching out for extra funding and support. Your help in this program is greatly appreciated. In conclusion, I would like to express a personal Thank You to all the fair board members and sponsors for their hard work and dedication to bring you a quality county fair. Please say a big Thank You to these special people. Sincerely,

Joel Richards

Sons carry on fathers’ traditions at county fair Charter member Howard Calvert took pride in fair’s growth, made it a family affair


or the first time in a long time, a familiar face will not be making the rounds at this summer’s Ray County Fair. Howard Calvert, one of the charter members of the Ray County Fair Board, died at the age of 88 in March. Calvert, along with Harold Strobel, Junior Graham, Gary Holloway and Paul Rapp, decided the Ray County Fair needed a permanent home after the fair had been moved around for the first few years of its existence. “They had it back where the old Woodson School was at one time,” recalls Calvert’s son Charles. “They had a bunch of tents set up to show the cattle. Then they decided to find their own area. They always used to have a county fair, but there never was a Ray County Fair Association.” Due to the lack of space, the earlier HOWARD fairs featured very little compared to the CALVERT current ones. Cattle and a few hogs were the featured shows in the beginning, but a visitor to today’s Ray County Fair will find chickens, rabbits, goats, hams, 4-H exhibits and a ham breakfast just to name a few. In addition, there are other attractions such as the demolition derby and tractor pulls. “It just gets bigger and better every year,” Charles said. Calvert said one of the first duties of the newly formed fairboard was to find a permanent place to hold the Ray County Fair. Once the board decided on the current location, the fair was able to expand, barns were built to replace the tents, and the new home of the Ray County Fair was established in the early 1970s. Calvert and the board then went out to seek public support. “He wasn’t the only one, it was a group thing,” Charles said. “They all went out and got donations from the businesses and the sponsor trophies and things like that. They all had a list of businesses and that would be what they would work on for a week or two.” Charles added the board members had no trouble in getting support. After the fair was established, Howard remained involved in almost every aspect of the fair, but Charles said his dad would always be keeping an eye on the finances. “He was always a guy that watched their money,” he said. “If they got low on money, he would get on them and make sure they would spend their money wisely.” Charles said his dad got him involved in the fair when he was in high school by showing cattle. Since then, he has been involved in the demolition derby for the past 35 years and he adds it will be a different feeling when the Ray County Fair rolls around in July. He said his mother, Marian, who still lives at the farm they owned for over 60 years, sent over $1,000 in memorial donations from the services to the Ray County Fairboard. – Russ Green/Richmond News

After his father’s passing in January, Dale Vandiver takes over his role of establishing floor bids for auction


t any auction, someone has to start the bidding for each item, and for decades at the Ray County Fair livestock auction, that someone was Robert “Bob” Vandiver. With his passing in January, the fair board sought a logical replacement for the job: Bob’s son Dale Vandiver.

As a longtime member of the fair board and its advisory committee, Bob always furnished straw bales for seating at the Farmers Appreciation Dinner, livestock for the rodeos and tractors for the pulls, Dale said. “He never set up gates or made decisions, but he would help in any way he could,” Dale said.

Dale Vandiver gives credit to his father, Bob, for making Ray County Fair livestock auctions successful for many years. “If they hadn’t had my dad all those years, they wouldn’t have had anybody start the bidding,” he said.

Since the fair’s early days in the late 1960s, Bob’s chief contribution was to the livestock auction, where 4-H and FFA members show their steers, hogs, goats and sheep in hopes of selling the animals and earning some money. To get that process rolling, Bob offered the starting bid – the market value for the animal on auction day. “If they hadn’t had my dad all those years, they wouldn’t have had anybody start the bidding,” Dale said. Dale said, for instance, that if the market value for a steer were $1.20 per pound, as it was on July 1, Bob established that floor. Then other bidders jumped in and topped the bidding off at, say, $1.50 per pound. Bob then paid the first $1.20, and the winning bidder paid the remaining 30 cents. Bob ended up with the animals, and the bidder ended up with a little pubBOB VANDIVER licity for himself and a lot of gratitude from the exhibitor. The process worked because Bob, a longtime cattleman, had the equipment to haul away the livestock. He was the only person in the area who could handle the volume, Dale said. “He’d put them on the truck and send them to the packing house,” Dale said. This year, Dale expects the auctioneer to offer 12 steers, 10 hogs and five to seven sheep at the livestock show July 17. “Just the best, the blue ribbon animals,” Dale said. Dale said that in the past, more exhibitors showed more animals, but the number of youths participating has “really dropped.” Young people are busier, but more significantly, raising livestock is expensive. A 4-H or FFA member may spend $1,000 or more to buy a steer and then spend VANDIVER

New car category, beer sales changes to demo derby Ray County demolition derby organizers are adding a new car category for more ways to win at the Saturday, July 20, event at Ray County Fairgrounds. The group has added a modified compact division along with its stock compact cars. Prizes in the modified compact DEMOLITION DERBY divisions are $700 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 20 for first, $300 for Ray County Fairgrounds arena second, $200 for $10 admission at the gate third and $100 for fourth, along with trophies. Stock compact division guarantees a 100 percent payback, and if more than 10 cars are entered, the prize money ups to $250 more. This year’s derby also has a full-sized car category with more prize money. First receives $1,200, second $500, third $300 and fourth place $150 along with trophies. Also added is a Mad Dog Trophy in the fullsized and modified compact categories. One thing that has stayed the same is the entry fee. It’s $25 and $20 for a pit pass.

Organizers, with the approval of Ray County Commission, are re-introducing beer sales at the July 20 event. All alcohol was banned in past years due to a few unruly incidents. The fair board hopes beer availability at the event – in a controlled environment – will bring back more spectators. Calvert said Ray County Sheriffs Department and Richmond Police Department will be on hand at the event. Richmond City Council approved a one-day caterer’s license to Andy Skiles, co-owner of Our Place, to serve beer. No coolers will be allowed inside the fairgrounds. “For us, it’s just a draw, hopefully 500 to 600 more people will attend,” said organizer Charles Calvert. “We make no money off beer sales.” More attendees equals more money from the gate, Calvert said, and that benefits 4-H and FFA fair participants. “We give $6,000 in prize money each year at the fair, and that comes from profits,” he said.


A SHOW FOR ALL VEHICLES Fair rolls out inaugural car, truck and tractor show

Rides of various forms will be on display at Ray County Fair’s first-ever car, truck and tractor show Saturday, July 13, in front of Ray County Museum. Unlike most car shows, you don’t have to have an antique truck or car to participate. “Entries should be antique tractors, but it’s open to cars and trucks of any year,” said coordinator Robbie Williams. Registration is 10 to 11 a.m. and judging begins at 12:30 p.m. Entry fee is $15. Williams said the public will have a big hand in who’ll be the winners. The public can vote on four different car and trucks awards and three awards for antique tractor. In all, awards will be given to the Top 5 antique tractors and the Top 10 in autos and trucks. For more information, contact Williams at 816-255-8601.

The fair’s demolition derby has added a modified compact division along with Mad Dog trophies with prizes and cash in the fullsized and modified compact categories. The derby is 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 20.(File photo)

Evans Midland Carnival returns to Richmond during fair time, July 17-20 Kids didn’t see much carnival action at this year’s snowy Mushroom Festival, so festival organizers jumped at the chance to accept an open date from Evans Midland Carnival. After all, it was a chance for the Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce to recoup some of its loses from the weatherplagued May event. The open date, July 17-20, just happens to coincide with the Ray County Fair. Proceeds of the carnival will be split between the chamber and Ray County

Fair Board, according to Mushroom Festival chairman Nathan Preston. The partnership is a way to aid the fair with financial costs, he said. The carnival will be at its Mushroom Festival location, just off Main Street in the Camden Street parking lot. Evans Midland will offer three wristband nights, July 17-19, so kids can ride all the rides from 6 to 10 p.m. for $20. The carnival will also be open Saturday, July 20, 1 to 10 p.m.

Dance band Boomerz kicks off Ray County Fair


K, it might be a little corny to say Ray County Fair is starting its eight-day event with a bang – or a boom. But fair board organizers are definitely changing up things with Kansas City-area band Boomerz performing on the first evening of the fair Friday, July 12, along with beer sales that evening. Boomerz returns to Richmond after its first stint playing at this year’s frigid Mushroom Festival. Around 40 to 50 people braved near-freezing temps at Friday’s festival beer garden. But with the band’s large repertoire of dance tunes, maybe they weren’t cold. “We’re excited to come back when it’s not 33 degrees,” said Mark Rezac, leader of the band. “Being a barefoot drummer, it was little rough on my feet.” Rezac said they had a great time with the festival crowd, and were told by them they would be out to see the band again. Some of those folks must have told Robbie Williams, who’s coordinating the kick-off night of the fair. “I had a lot of people request them because they liked them at the Mushroom Festival,” he said. Rezac said his band considers itself a “variety dance band.” “Our slogan, actually it’s a warning, says our shows have been known to cause uncontrollable foot tapping, head bobbing and booty shaking,” Rezac said. The band likes to play songs that are danceable and recognizable, he says, in a rapid-fire succession. The also sprinkle in country into their play sets. The playlist – to say the least – is diverse. There are classic rock dance numbers, like “Long Cool Woman,” by The Hollies to new country anthems, like “Cruise” by Georgia Florida Line. “We go from Elvis to Roy Orbison to Michael Jackson to AC/DC to Luke Bryan. It’s a long stretch. We try to mix and match that as best we can,” Rezac says. The band – Rezac, Terry Viles and John Pierce – all take turns as lead singers and like to showcase their harmony, too. That’s why the Doobie Brothers and the Eagles are two of the band’s favorites. Rezac says they’re not afraid of a little July heat. The band, which has been together since 1995, says they’ve

played in several outdoor shows under pretty warm conditions. They’ll perform in the livestock barn at Ray County Fairgrounds 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Cover charge is $5. Gates open at 7. As the band opens, beer will be available for purchase, Williams said, and I.D.s will be checked at the entrance of the barn. FFA will also operate its concession stand, selling hamburgers, hot dogs, water and soft drinks. Outside food or drinks aren’t allowed. “This is for all ages, not just for those consuming alcohol,” Williams said. He suggests concert-goers bring their lawn chairs and enjoy the show. “People who missed the first time can catch us this time,”

more for feed to fatten the animal. Once the exhibitor invests that kind of money, profit margins can grow slim. The auction is more rewarding when bidders who want to support a family friend run bids higher, Dale said. “They help out the kids they know,” Dale said, adding that his family has always tried to support exhibitors from Orrick to thank families who have done business with the Vandivers at Orrick Farm Service.

Dale said that by raising show animals, exhibitors learn not only how to care for livestock but also how to manage financial aspects of the business. It can be a valuable lesson that might teach participants that the livestock business isn’t for them. “Some are the third or fourth generation, some only do it once,” Dale said. Dale will now be the second generation Vandiver to start the floor bid process at the auction. “You have to start with market value for sheep, hogs and cattle,” Dale said. “That’s what Dad did, and that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to carry on his name.”

2013 4-H CLUBS 4-H BUILDING SHOWCASE Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development University of Missouri Extension

“Learning by Doing” is the basis of 4-H work, and each year thousands of young Missourians between the ages of 8 and 19 do just that. 4-H members make the items displayed in the Missouri State Fair 4-H Building or raise and train the animals on display in State Fair shows. The Missouri State Fair provides

a showcase for the skills and knowledge that 4-H members have gained through their 4-H experiences. Besides developing practical skills and knowledge, 4-Hers are developing “life skills.” Under the leadership of more than 9,000 adult volunteers, 4-H members learn to make sound deci-

sions, work cooperatively in groups and develop a sense of self-worth and accomplishment. 4-H also fosters leadership, as older youth share their talents with younger 4-Hers. We salute all Missouri 4-H members, volunteers and families at the 2013 Missouri State Fair!

The how-to on bidding at the livestock auction So, you don’t want to own the whole hog. That’s OK. You don’t have to. For those curious how the Ray County Fair’s 4-H and FFA livestock auction works, here goes: • Informational sheets are provided the night of the auction, which is 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 17. The sheet includes type of livestock (sheep, goats, hogs and cattle), weight of animals, owners’ names and 4-H and FFA affiliation. • Floor price, meaning base minimum price per pound, will be announced the night

of the auction for each type of livestock, according to Travis Gibson, the fair’s livestock chairman. Bids start at the floor price and go up. For example: a 250-pound boar has a floor price of 50 cents a pound. The winning bid is for $1.25 a pound. The bidder can choose to keep the animal and pay the full amount – $312.50 – or sell it back to the owner and only pay above the floor price, 75 cents a pounds or $187.50. All bid money goes back to FFA or 4-H exhibitors.

Gregg Steele, (right) owner of Richmond Farm and Lawn, is a big supporter of the Ray County Fair. He regularly buys livestock and hams from 4-H and FFA exhibitors, including Cody McNelly’s hog last year.
