Welcome from the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of the Sumner County Fair Association takes pleasure in presenting herewith the Premium List, Rules, and Regulations governing the 2018 annual free fair to be held in Caldwell, Kansas, August 2-5. 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 year, a change in premiums will be instituted. All exhibits – with the exception of livestock, quilts, booths and banners, and wheat show – will be awarded $3 for first placing, $2 for second placing, and $1 for third placing. One check will be issued to an exhibitor for all premiums earned at the Fair and will be available for pickup at 11:30 a.m. Sunday. Thus, exhibits are accepted only with the definite understanding that if, for any reason whatever, 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. BOARD OF DIRECTORS SUMNER COUNTY FAIR ASSOCIATION CALDWELL, KANSAS

SAVE A HEART HAVE A BALL FOR KAWASAKI DISEASE Fundraising Contest | Casie Risley (620-845-1754) Chairman

Catch The Fair Bug | Page 3

CATCH THE FAIR BUG

This local fundraising contest is to raise money to raise awareness of Kawasaki Disease, also known as KD. Kawasaki Disease causes inflammation in the walls of medium-sized arteries throughout the body. It primarily affects children. The inflammation tends to affect the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. The good news is that Kawasaki Disease is treatable with early diagnosis, and most children recover without serious problems. Sadly, since KD is an uncommon disease, patients are often misdiagnosed and do not receive the necessary life-saving treatments. Through this fundraising effort, we aim to increase awareness of Kawasaki Disease. WHAT: Create any project using BALLS or HEARTS– create purses, sculptures, planters, wreaths, etc., bake cakes or cookies, paint pictures, etc. (Pinterest is good for ideas for projects.) WHO: Any individual, group, organization, business, or club is encouraged to participate. Individuals will compete in classes: 6th grade and under; 7th to 12th grade; and adult. RULES: 1. Create your project 2. Enter your project in the Sumner County Fair by 10:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 3. Take the entry to the stage area in the community (rock) building to enter it. 3. All entries will be on display at the Sumner County Fair. 4. Prizes will be awarded in each individual age division and in the group division. 5. Winners will be determined by People’s Choice method of a penny a vote. 6. Winners will be announced at the Country Church service on Sunday. 7. Each participant has the option to donate their project for the Save a Heart Have a Ball auction to be held on Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. 8. All money raised will be donated to the Kawasaki Disease foundation. Sponsored by Sumner County Economic Development

Weber family named grand marshals The Sumner County Fair Association is proud to have the Henry “Butch” Weber family as the grand marshals of the 2018 annual fair. The Weber family has played an active role in the Sumner County Fair for many years. Butch has served many years as a director on the Sumner County Fair Board. He has manned the grill for the Demo Derby and Figure 8 races and even a soccer tournament fundraiser for the fair. He along with Carson Ward, Don Patton, JE Cochran, Shane Schmidt, Jonathan Weber, and several others have grilled many, many hamburgers, brats, hot dogs and even onions for some. While he helped with cooking, his children Mandy, Holly, Katy, Jonathan, Hannah, Nathan, and Mary each spent time delivering the cooked goods to the concession stand. If it was not their turn to deliver food, the others worked in the concession stand or helped in other areas such as putting on admission bracelets at the gate or tagging coolers. Butch commented that in all of the years he has spent cooking, he has never seen a derby or race, but maybe someday. Butch and his family have also helped with setting up, tearing down, and cleaning up after the county fair. He has helped prepare the stage area and said that getting the skirt wrapped

around just right was a challenge. His children were always working alongside him. The youngest, Mary, says she thinks she was picking up trash as soon as she learned to walk. The children have all been active at the fair as 4-H members. Through the years, they entered various projects and participated in different contests. In addition, they have all served as assistants to the superintendents and helped in many areas. As they have grown older and completed their years in 4-H, they have continued to help with the fair. For example, Mandy continues to help as a 4-H leader; Holly came home from college to help with the photography department and horse show. Katy served as a 4-H Ambassador and helped promote 4-H at the fair and now has a daughter in 4-H who is continuing the tradition. Jonathan also continues to work each year, since he is now a fair board member; he has created signs for the Ag Building, serves as crops superintendent, helps with board activities such as supervision of the water slide and inflatables, and helps carry the large American flag in the parade. Hannah has helped with the fair since she was little, even before she was old enough to join 4-H. While she has been in college, she has also returned

each year to help in the photography and horse departments and has helped carry the flag. She just completed her degree in animal science and shared her “joke of the day” by asking what farm animal keeps the best time? A watchdog, of course. Nathan has been a “behind the scenes” helper during his years at the fair, always willing to do whatever job needed his attention. Mary, the youngest, has been part of the county fair for 16 years, as she was a week old when she attended her first Sumner County Fair and has been at every fair since that one. Mary works wherever she is needed and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Six of the Weber children have earned the Key Award in 4-H, and the youngest will receive hers this year. What an accomplishment for a family. Mom Susie has kept all of these children and Butch in line and prepared for the fair each year. Can you imagine the number of projects she has supervised to completion? She works as a 4-H leader and also works as a superintendent at the fair. Butch and his family have enjoyed the Sumner County Fair and plan to continue the tradition with the grandchildren. Congratulations and thanks to the Weber family for all they have done for the fair through the years.

Six Appeal Vocal Band is one of the busiest touring a cappella ensembles in the country. From coast to coast, the group has become known for its vivid musical style, unmatched energy and playful charm. Its far-reaching repertoire spans a multitude of decades and genres, including pop, country, classic rock, jazz, R&B and much more. The group began as a collegiate hobby in 2006 at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. Performing around campus was a great way to relax from classes, create a new sound on campus, and yes, meet girls. As they evolved into a professional ensemble in 2010, Six Appeal began to introduce new members, transforming their sound and focus into the current dynamic sextet. In 2012, they won the title of National Harmony Sweepstakes Championship, securing their place in the a cappella community. The appeal of these young men enables the group to perform anywhere from college campuses, to State Fairs, corporate functions, community festivals, theaters, K-12 classrooms, and has even brought them into the national spotlight, singing for the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl live on ESPN. With members formally instructed in singing and musical composition, and over 100 combined years of music and performance training and experience, Six Appeal utilizes a diverse arsenal of style and entertainment. In addition, Six Appeal has a passion for spreading their a cappella music to every audience, and an essential aspect of their mission is to empower young singers in their educational outreach program. Six Appeal is: Andrew Berkowitz, Michael Brookens, Reuben Hushagen, Evan Taylor Jones, Trenard Jones, and Jordan Roll.

For Boyles kids, 4-H is a family affair By Sam Jack Star-Argosy sjack@tsnews.com

The Boyle family – parents Diane and Nicholas and children Cooper and Lucy – are very active in 4-H, both in their hometown Conway Springs Cardinals 4-H Club and in county 4-H activities. Cooper and Lucy have been leaders of the Cardinals 4-H Club, with Cooper serving a term as president, and Lucy a term as vice president. Both are involved in planning the club’s activities, mentoring younger members and helping the group set priorities. Both Cooper and Lucy raised market goats and entered them in the Fair last year, in what was Cooper’s third year to enter a goat and Lucy’s sixth. Cooper said that they start assessing which goats are potential prizewinners in March or April, when the kids are about 2 months old. “Then we start them on grain as they start developing,” he said. “Right about June, we pick the ones that look the best, and take the others off grain, and we just feed the ones that we’re going to show, to get them up to size and make them look good for the Fair.” Cooper and Lucy walk the goats around their pen and up and down the road, on leads, to get them used to the outdoors. “That starts when they’re younger; they tend to listen better,” Cooper said. Even trained, there’s no getting a goat to be totally docile, Lucy said. “Sometimes they like to jump up or lay down while you’re trying to walk them. Besides that, and running away or trying to, they’re pretty basic,” she said. Cooper’s goat got a red ribbon last summer, while Lucy’s goat got first in its class and won the second blue ribbon overall. In addition to goats, Cooper entered three welded metal sculptures, and Lucy entered three baked goods in the Fair. Both sent entries to the Kansas State Fair after earning purple ribbons. Lucy’s purple ribbon entry was a plate

Conway Springs Star/Argonia Argosy of snickerdoodles, which she made the morning of the Fair. It was a little bit nervewracking, because there wasn’t much time for do-overs if she made a mistake. “I had made some before, kind of as practice ones, but not in a while, so I wasn’t sure how they’d turn out,” she said. Cooper got a purple ribbon for a reindeer Christmas decoration he made by welding horseshoes together. He also entered a horseshoe Christmas tree, and a Christian cross made of railroad spikes. He learned to weld through a class at Conway Springs High School, and from his father, Nicholas, who is a professional welder. Diane and Nicholas took over as shooting sports leaders for Sumner County a few years ago, reviving a project that had been inactive for some time. 4-H shooting sports include .22 caliber, shotgun, archery and air rifle. “We thought that would be fun for the kids, because they like those, too, but there wasn’t a leader,” Diane said. “We went to training so that we could be active in that project.” The Boyles try to hold practices twice a month during the summer, and in the fall, they have air rifle practice indoors at the Raymond Frye Complex in Wellington. They have taken Sumner County kids to competitions in Sedgwick and Butler counties. Shooting sports is open to anybody interested in learning, Diane said. “Some of the younger ones don’t have much shooting experience, so they’re kind of starting from the ground up, but occasionally, we get kids who are pretty active in hunting, and who have some experience but want a little more direction,” she said. The Boyles all said that they enjoy 4-H as an activity they can all participate in together as a family, year round.
