Coosa Valley Fair Information & General Rules 1. The Fair will open at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, and will close at midnight, Saturday, Oct. 6. See the fair schedule on page 2 for gate hours each day. 2. Where any conflict appears between these General Rules and the special rules governing the different Departments the special rules will take precedence. The Fair Association reserves the right to construe its own rules and regulations and to determine all matters and differences in regard thereto, including amendments. 3. The Association furnishes guards who remain guarding buildings day and night. While every reasonable precaution will be taken for safeguarding exhibits, it should be understood that the exhibits are entered in competition for prizes, and that the owner assumes all responsibility for any accident, loss or damage that may occur. Neither the Fair Association, its officers nor agents will be responsible for any such accident, loss or damage. 4. All entries should be made on the regular entry blank furnished by this Association. The same articles, other than livestock, that won prizes in the 2011 Coosa Valley Fair should not be shown for competition during the 2012 Coosa Valley Fair. 5. All exhibits entered for competition shall be subject to the control of the Director of the Department in which they are exhibited. 6. Except as otherwise provided for by special rules governing certain Departments, all exhibits must be in place and fully installed by noon, Monday, Oct. 1; otherwise, they may receive no attention from awarding committees. 7. For any exhibitor having a space reserved and not occupying same or making preparation to occupy it 24 hours prior to opening date of Fair, their reservation may be canceled at the discretion of the Association. 8. For every article entered, the exhibitor will be given a coupon showing Department, Division, Class and number of articles. This receipt must be preserved and presented to the Department Directors at close of the Fair, when article is called for and claimed. 9. Exhibitors will be held responsible for the cleanliness of

their exhibits and space surrounding same. All exhibits must be in complete order each day at least 30 minutes before the opening hour. No work of this character will be permitted during the hours the buildings are open to the public. In case of failure on the part of exhibitors to observe the rule, the Department Director may adopt such means to enforce the same as circumstances may suggest. 10. When space is allotted, a permit to occupy space will be given; such permit will not be transferable and no other party will be allowed to share such place with the original applicant, except upon approval of the Management. 11. Advertising matter and sample of articles on exhibition only may be given to the public from booth space, or exhibit, and only with the approval of Fair Management. No article may be sold from the exhibits without special authority from the Fair Management. The right is reserved to restrict or discontinue this privilege whenever it is carried to excess or becomes an annoyance to visitors. Only advertising matter of such articles as have been contracted for with the Association by exhibitors may be posted in booths. 12. Advertising by means of posters, prints, handbills, samples, etc., will not be permitted within the Fair Grounds, except upon agreement with the Fair Management. No political booths, signs or distribution of literature is allowed. 13. All articles, after being entered and until surrendered to the owner or agent, will be entirely under the control and jurisdiction of the Association, and no exhibitor will be allowed to remove, handle or rearrange, improve or disfigure same under any circumstances, unless permission is granted by Department Director or Fair Management. 14. Exhibitors may sell at their respective stands any article displayed, to be delivered to the purchaser at close of the Fair. 15. No Department Director or member of the Fair Board of Directors may enter exhibits for prizes in competition with the public. 16. If it is ascertained that any exhibitor, in any unruly manner,

refuses to comply with the regulations of the Association, and has taken exception to the judgment of a Judge or an awarding committee, the Board of Directors shall bar the person offending from competition for a premium or exhibiting on the grounds of the Association until he shall have made proper amends and has been reinstated by a vote of majority of the Board of Directors. 17. An exhibitor who tears off a premium ribbon, authorizes any person to do so in the presence of the awarding Judge, who refuses a ribbon from a Judge or otherwise insults the awarding Judge, shall forfeit the premium or diploma and be excluded from competition. 18. If it is ascertained that an exhibitor has made, or caused to be made, a false statement in regard to any animal or article exhibited, or if any exhibitor shall attempt to interfere with the Judges in their performance of their duties, he shall be excluded from competing or from exhibition on the grounds of the Association. 19. No smoking, or lighted candles, lamps, matches, etc., will be allowed in any tents or exhibition booths in building. 20. All applicants for exhibit space must have the unanimous approval of the Fair Board and said Board reserves the right to decline any exhibit or exhibits if deemed advisable. 21.

See Rule 4. 24. Intending exhibitors shall write plainly on the entry blanks the Department, Division and Class Number of the prize offered for the article they wish to enter, using the exact wordings of the premium list, and must give their post office address. Exhibitors will save themselves and the

office of the Association much time by attending to these directions and preparing their blanks before proceeding to make entries. 25. The Director of each Department must check the entries shown by the entry books in each Division, with the exhibits presented and so mark the entry books that they will show what animals or article were passed on by the judges. JUDGES 26. The Fair, acting through its Department Directors, reserves the right to refuse, reject or withdraw any exhibit for any reason, including, without limitation, a Director’s determination that an exhibit is offensive, inappropriate or obscene. 27. Should any doubt arise as to the regularity of an entry, or any other important matter which the Judge feels incompetent to decide, he shall at once report the same to the Department Director who shall in turn bring the matter to the attention of the Fair Management. 28. No one will be allowed to act as Judge in a Department or ring in which he exhibits. 29. All Judges will be selected for their known familiarity with the classes on which they are invited to award premiums, and are instructed that if they shall have good reasons to believe that any exhibitor, by false entry or otherwise, attempts to deceive the Judges or the public, and obtain a premium by misrepresentation, they shall report that fact at once to the Director of the Department, who shall report the matter to the Fair Management for action. 30. The decision of awarding Judges shall be final and no appeal shall be considered except in case of protest. 31. Objection to any person serving as a Judge must be submitted to the Department Director in writing prior to making award, giving good and sufficient reasons therefore and the Director shall report the matter immediately to the Fair Management. 32. Any exhibitor attempting to interfere with the Judges during the adjudications will be promptly excluded from competition. 33. The Judges will award prizes on the articles regularly mentioned in the premium list, Rome News-Tribune

Protests against an award must be made in writing, accompanied by affidavits which must specify in full the grounds for protest and a deposit of $10 to the Secretary of the Association before the close of the day following the making of such an award. In case the protest is not sustained, the deposit shall be forfeited to the Association. 35. The Secretary will notify the exhibitor of the protested animal or exhibit of such protest, and both parties will then have 24 hours to bring sworn testimony in the case to be submitted to the Board of Directors. The protested award will be held in abeyance until the final action of the Board of Directors passing on same. PUBLIC CONVENIENCES 36.
