Welcome from the Board of Directors of the Sumner County Fair

The Board of Directors of the Sumner County Fair Association takes pleasure in presenting herewith the Premium List and the Rules and Regulations governing the 2017 annual free fair to be held in Caldwell, Kan., August 3-6. We wish to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to participate as exhibitors. Every effort is being made by the Board to make this a successful fair with a large number of quality exhibits, plenty of entertainment, and a place for you to meet your friends. This list is being printed previous to the allotment of money for premiums by the County Commissioners. Therefore, exhibits are accepted only with the definite understanding that if, for any reason whatsoever, sufficient funds are not available to pay premiums and awards in full as listed, the Sumner County Fair Association Board of Directors reserves the right to prorate premiums on a percentage basis. Even though this has not occurred in the past, the Board wishes to reserve this right. Your support by bringing exhibits and attending will be more than appreciated. The Board depends on this for a successful fair.

2017 Sumner County Fair Guide

Conway Springs Star/Argonia Argosy

Cochrans named as grand marshals for 2017 Fair J.E. and Deborah Cochran feel honored to be named Grand Marshalls of the 2017 Sumner County Fair. J.E. was born in Caldwell and grew up on a farm 12 miles southeast of Caldwell. He attended school and graduated from Deer Creek High School, in Deer Creek, Okla. J.E. and his dad, Everett, farmed and raised cattle together. J.E. attended Auctioneer School in Mason City, Iowa, and began building a lifelong business. J.E. served in the Armed Forces in 1966-67. He received somewhat of an early discharge because of his father’s failing health. He came home to run the farm and cattle business. Deborah was born in Miami, Okla. When she was 4, the family moved to Hugoton. They moved again to Cherokee, Okla., at the beginning of her freshman year of high school. She completed all four years of high school there and, upon graduation, moved to Wichita and worked at St. Francis Medical Center. She and J.E. met at church meetings, and love grew. They married that fall, and Deborah began learning how to be a farm wife, which included cooking and caring for a harvest crew. In the early 1970s, they both attended real estate school, became licensed in Kansas and Oklahoma, and opened Cochran Real Estate and Auction. In 1989, they moved from the farm to their present home at the edge of Caldwell. They have two children: a son, Lance, and a daughter, Jan. Lance and his wife, Tracy, live on the family farm. Lance is an auctioneer also. He auctions at livestock sales and helps his dad with the farming, cattle and other auctions. His wife, Tracy, works for Advance/Pierre

J.E. and Deborah Cochran and their family. J.E. and Deborah are this year’s Grand Marshals.

Food Company in Enid, Okla. They have three children. Lexi, 10; Tori, 5; and Tru, 2. Jan is a dog groomer and an animal lover. She resides in Caldwell. Lance and Jan both graduated from Caldwell High School. J.E. remembers his first days of being a part of the fair. It was in the early 1970s. Lewis Neal was the livestock superintendent. He asked J.E. to be the cattle superintendent and Wade Williams to be the swine superintendent. Ever since

those early days, J.E. has been involved with the 4-H and FFA students. He has served as Fair President in the past. He enjoys working with the young people. J.E. and Lance enjoy being involved with the premium sale of the animals. Deborah just tries to be a wife, helpmate and the glue that holds it all together. “We are proud to be a part of the Sumner County Fair and want to express our thanks to all of you who have supported us through the years. May God bless.”

and has appeared in “Star Trek,” “Blaze,” “Back to the Future III” and “Basic Instinct.” Berline has recorded seven solo albums, including his highly acclaimed “Fiddle & A Song” with guest performances from Vince Gill, Mason Williams, Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe. In 1996 the album was nominated for two Grammy awards, Best Album of the Year and Best Song of the Year. In 1995, Byron returned to his home state of Oklahoma, where he opened a fiddle shop in the town of Guthrie, for the purpose of “visiting, trading and jamming” with folks who enjoy their music. As a natural progression, a band was formed to entertain regularly in the music hall above the fiddle shop. The Byron Berline Band found themselves in great demand around the state, as well as surrounding states, and have extended their music through Europe. Byron’s band buddies include: BANJO: Regarded as Oklahoma’s master of the banjo, Billy Perry has been instrumental in the music scene of his state since the age of 13 when he was performing at Springlake Amusement Park in Oklahoma City.  Subsequent bands are the Bluegrass ReVue with his brother Mike, Billy and Bobby Clark, and Vince Gill,  Mountain Smoke, Crossfire, and The Renegades, often fronting for national and internationally renowned groups.  In addition to his banjo, Billy can often be seen playing his dobro and singing lead vocals. GUITAR: Thomas Trapp grew up in the northeastern Oklahoma town of Tahlequah. His childhood was full of all things outdoors, and, since his dad and grandfather are bluegrass style guitarists, music. Thomas went to festivals and contests with them, and by a natural progression, found himself with a guitar in his hands as well. By the age of 15, he was fully immersed in flatpicking and spent countless hours playing along with old records and tapes. A few of his biggest influences

2017 Sumner County Fair Guide were Mark O’Connor, Tony Rice, David Grier, Dan Crary and Byron Berline. In 2008 Thomas won the Oklahoma State Flatpicking Contest, as his dad had done some years earlier. Thomas graduated from Northeastern State University with a degree in Business Administration and currently live in Stillwater, Okla., with fiancée Kim and daughter Josephine. Thomas feels blessed to be a part of so much local Oklahoma music and its iconic Red Dirt style. Many local Oklahoma artists have helped provide him with an opportunity to hone his skills and share his craft, and now playing with Byron Berline makes a complete, full circle in music for Thomas. He learned from him, and now he plays for him, and for that, he feels grateful beyond measure. FIDDLE/GUITAR: Greg Burgess has been playing guitar and fiddle for over 30 years.  Starting as a child, Greg had a lot of support and instruction from family and friends.  Over the years, associations with fiddlers like Clark Forshee, Amos Hedrick, Ace Sewell, Russell O’Neal, Herman Johnson, Dick Barrett, Orville Burns, Merle David and, of course, Byron Berline, helped form Greg’s fiddling style.  Greg has won the Oklahoma State Fiddle Championship numerous times, and has been ranked in the top 10 at a number of national level fiddle contests.  Greg has recorded and/or shared the stage with a number of musical greats, including Hank Thompson, Leon Raush, Jody Miller, Mel Tillis, Moe Bandy, Billy Walker, Wanda Jackson, Becky Hobbs, Red Stegall, Suzy Bogguss, Asleep at the Wheel, and many others.  Greg has also been included in the Folk Life section of the Oklahoma History Center.  Greg lives in Guthrie, Okla., and considers it a privilege and an honor to play twin fiddles and guitar with Byron Berline and his band. BASS:  Richard Sharp is at home on the left-handed upright and electric bass. Richard has stayed busy with more recording sessions than can be listed.  He grew up listening to all kinds of music, from Hank Williams to Bill Monroe and The Beatles, and has toured with Oklahoma’s own Harlow Wilcox, recording on his Grammy nominated album

Byron Berline and his band will perform on Saturday, August 5, at the Sumner County Fair in Caldwell. Berline has performed with Vince Gill, Mason Williams, Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, and other artists.

“Groovy Grubworm.” He has shared the stage with Hank Thompson, Texas Playboys, Chris Hillman, Vince Gill, Alan Munde, John Anderson, Boxcar Willie, Wanda Jackson, Colin Raye, Les Gilliam, as well as entertaining Oklahoma governors George Nigh and Frank Keating. Richard’s showmanship and vocal contributions to the band bring a nice variety. DRUMS:  Steve Short began playing

drums with his parents’ family band at a very early age.  Since those early days, he has recorded and played with every big name imaginable, including three years with Reba McIntyre.  Steve is an accomplished recording and sound engineer, and produces the Byron Berline Band’s album projects.  He is undoubtedly the most popular recording drummer in the area.

Through September, Sumner-Cowley Electric Cooperative asks its members to be “Peak Shavers” and voluntarily conserve energy from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the time when demand for electricity is at its highest. What can you do to help? It’s as simple as raising your thermostat a few degrees or delaying the use of major appliances until later in the evening. Working together to curb demand for electric power is a win-win for Sumner-Cowley Electric and its members, helping us keep the cost of power as low as possible.
