Five Days Of

FAMILY FUN by Nate Pedersen for The Bulletin

It’s “fun for the whole herd” this year at the Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo. The largest county fair in the state — and the largest event of any type east of the Cascades — will be celebrating its 94th year between Wednesday, July 31 and Sunday, Aug. 4 within the 80-acre fairgrounds in southeast Redmond. Ros s Ro g er s, D e s chute s Count y Fair Marketing Director, said there are plenty of reasons to attend this year for newcomers and longtime attendees alike. At the top of Rogers’ list is the fair’s tremendous value, which “is impossible to beat.” Rogers stressed that the price of admission ($10 for adults) gives you access to an award-winning rodeo, a concert series including four major concerts “that would typically cost $75 or so per ticket,” extensive 4-H exhibits and amusement park rides (additional tickets required). The Bulletin Family Fun Zone will also feature more than an acre of stage acts, carnival games, pony rides and a petting zoo for children, all free with paid fair admission. The major concert series this year begins with Cheap Trick on Wednesday evening in the Hooker Creek Event Center.

Rogers said that he “couldn’t be more satisfied” with this year’s line-up of musical acts. Cheap Trick is followed by Kip Moore on Thursday, Aaron Tippin on Friday, and Kansas on Saturday night. Cheap Trick and Kansas are both rock bands who hardly need an introduction. Both catapulted into fame in the 1970s on the strength of powerful singles like “I Want You to Want Me” by Cheap Trick and “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas. Aaron Tippin, another old hand, is a country music artist who achieved national attention in the 1990s with his hit single “You’ve Got to Stand for Something.” Kip Moore, representing the next generation of musicians, is a young, up-andcoming country artist who’s debut album, “Up All Night,” was released in 2012. His singles include “Somethin’ About a Truck” and “Beer Money.” Each concert begins at 7 p.m. While admission is free, the popular concerts require tickets that can be obtained at any McDonald’s in Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Prineville, Madras and La Pine on any Wednesday between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., beginning on July 3. New at the fair this year is the inclusion of Brad’s World Reptiles, who will bring “dozens of reptiles that people can hold or

touch.” Rogers said there will also be a variety of tortoises from Brad’s World that will roam around in straw bale corrals. The kids can look forward to a new Cowboy Boot Camp in The Bulletin Family Fun Zone where they can learn how to rope a calf or milk a cow. Sudsy’s Barn will be there, too, an interactive water station built like a theme park with animals that talk. In addition to the new exhibits and installations, there are always new vendors, food, games and carnival rides. The 31 food vendors present this year will sell everything from standard fair food to Greek and Asian specialties. The carnival will have 25 rides present. Visitors can spend hours roaming the barns alone, which house many varieties of animals raised by participants in the local 4-H and FFA (Future Farmers of America) programs.

begins each evening from Wednesday through Saturday at 7 p.m. The annual fair and rodeo parade takes off on Saturday at 10 a.m. in downtown Redmond. Admission to the fair is $10 for adults, with $19 for a season pass that lets you attend each day of the fair. Children ages 6 to 12, and seniors over 62, pay $6 for admission and $11 for a season pass. Children under 6 get in free. Different days of the fair offer different discounts, so plan your trip accordingly. Wednesday is Senior Day, when all seniors 62 and older gain free admission. On Thursday, all children 12 and under are free. On Friday, all carnival games are reduced to $2 each. On Sunday, admission is reduced to $5 for all entries. The fair is well attended, with up to 30,000 people spread over the 80 acres of fairgrounds during the busiest times of day. Rogers would like to remind people that “if you want to avoid the traffic, come early and stay late.” The fair opens at 10 a.m. each day. It closes at 10 p.m on Wednesday and Thursday, 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Fun for the whole herd!

T h e re i s a l s o an “o p e n” category for participants outside these organizations who wish to join in the friendly competition. While most of the barns will be dedicated to the animals, the South Sister building will display vegetables, quilts, canned goods and art. Rogers said that it is a “wonderful experience seeing all the barns full of kids and their animals.” The popular and multiple award winning rodeo

Another option for avoiding traffic at the two entries into the fairground parking lots is to take the bus. (A schedule for free fairgrounds buses is located on page 28 of this fair guide.) Rogers said that “everyone should go [to the fair] at least once.” Whether you are a newcomer to the county, or you’ve been attending the fair since you were a kid yourself, there will be “fun for the whole herd” this year and a plethora of options to keep you and the little ones entertained.

Priceless Entertainment H I G H L I G H T S D E S C H U T E S C O U N T Y FA I R & R O D E O by Molly Hover, for The Bulletin The fair in Central Oregon brings to mind a few standards: elephant ears, gut-twisting rides and the Deschutes County Fair Free Concert Series. Every year, the Deschutes County Fair and its sponsors (Big Country RV, Gary Gruner Chevrolet, GO! Magazine and KBNZ) create a lineup of top-rate musical performers. This year’s lineup features Cheap Trick, Kip Moore, Aaron Tippin, and Kansas, an eclectic mix of country, pop, and rock that organizers expect will appeal to multiple generations of fair goers. Fair marketing coordinator Ross Rogers said the process of selecting these acts requires working with a booking agent in Nashville, along with input from the fair manager and others on the Deschutes County Fair Association board. “Something a lot of folks don’t realize is that for our fair, we have to hit the bullseye four nights in a row for our lineup,” Rogers said. “We start off with a wish list of entertainers we would like to have at the fair and present that to our booking agent.”

The finished product this year is, Rogers states simply, “one of the best lineups we’ve had for years.” Each concert begins at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. in the Hooker Creek Event Center in the Deschutes County Fairgrounds. Cheap Trick kicks off the series on Wednesday night with their classic mix of rock and pop to fire up the crowd of loyal listeners, which they’ve done since the ‘70s with hits such as “I Want You to Want Me” and “The Flame.” Thursday’s performance will feature country singer Kip Moore, “who has been burning up the charts the past year with two No. 1 hits,” according to Rogers. He will perform songs such as “Beer Money” and “Hey Pretty Girl,” two of his more popular hits. Rogers adds that the series always tries to include “classic country, which we’ve nailed with Aaron Tippin.” Tippin is a self-made artist who emerged on the scene in the early ‘90s with what’s been described as music that sings to American roots. Songs, such as “You’ve Got to Stand for Something,” have become armed services anthems over the years. The last night of the Free Concert Series ends

with a second infusion of classic rock, this time by Kansas. “Classic rock is getting harder and harder to come by,” Rogers says, but he added that fair goers are fortunate in getting Kansas to perform such hits as “Carry on Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.” Tickets are required for each free show. They can be picked up at Central Oregon McDonalds every Wednesday from 2 to 7 p.m. through July 31. Tickets for fair admission are being pre-sold at participating Les Schwab Tire Stores and the Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District ($10 for adults; $6 for children and seniors). The Deschutes County Fair Free Concert Series is a great way for the entire family to enjoy music from performers who love what they do. Not only are the shows free with fair admission, but the Deschutes County Fair was also one of the first fairs to feature such a series, according to Rogers. Be sure to get your pass before the performances. The concerts feature performances you won’t want to miss.

WEDNESDAY • JULY 31

Cheap Trick A band the emerged on the scene in the ‘70s, Cheap Trick is a blast from the past with their recognizable combinations of pop, punk and a dash of metal. Originally from Illinois, Cheap Trick is made up of Robin Zander (vocal, guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar) and Bun E. Carlos (drums). The quartet of men have been making music since ‘73 and have sold more than 20 million records featuring hits such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Clock Strikes Ten” and “The Flame.” Their last album, aptly named “The Latest,” was released in 2009 featuring songs such as “Asleep Forever” and “Times of Our Lives.” The vibe they create is funky and eclectic. Go wonder they’ve been referred to as the American Beatles by the Japanese Press.

Native of Tifton, Georgia, Kip Moore entered the country music world just last year (2012) but has been playing guitar since high school. Upon moving to Nashville in 2004, Moore observed the singer/songwriter community of country artists until he believed himself ready to perform for small audiences. Soon, he was performing hit singles such as “Beer Money,” “Hey Pretty Girl” and “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” which have been described as being full of soul. His lyrics often portray personal experiences in the young artist’s life. The music from his first album “Up All Night,” is only the beginning of the up-andcoming a singer and songwriter’s career.

Country singer, songwriter and record producer Aaron Tippin is an artist of many trades. Debuting in the early ‘90s, his single “You’ve Got to Stand for Something” became an ode for the American soldiers in the Gulf War and helped to establish his style in the music industry. His passion has been creating music, and in the early days of his career, he performed in bars and local venues in Florida and Nashville. After releasing albums through RCA Records and Lyric Street, Tippin created his own record label in 2006, Nippit Records, and has produced singles such as “Drill Here, Drill Now” and “He Believed.” His songs remain country in their roots with the heart of an artist with dedication to music.

Kansas

Saturday, August 3, 7 p.m. • Hooker Creek Event Center Forty years as a band is nothing to complain about. The ‘70s band from non other than Kansas began small (in a garage) and made it big by releasing rock hits that have become anthems across generations. Current members Phil Ehart (drums, percussion), Rich Williams (guitars), Billy Greer (bass, vocals), Steve Walsh (keyboards, synthesizers, vocals) and David Ragsdale (violin, guitars, vocals) have produced such hits as “Carry on Wayward Son,” “Dust in the Wind” and “All I Wanted.” The band released their first album in 1974 and have continued to tour ever since, focusing on Europe and North America. Though the band members have changed over the last 40 years, the legacy of Kansas has not and their most recent album, “There’s No Place Like Home,” shows that this band is truly at home with their passion: music.

OFFERING FUN FOR EVERYONE AT THE FAIR

FAMILY FUN ZONE SPONSORED BY:

Bobbie Strome Real Estate

OPEN WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY,

11 A.M. - 9 P.M. UNTIL 5 P.M. SUNDAY

“Even in these challenging economic times, you can spend the day at the fair having old-fashioned fun with the entire family for free.” The Bulletin Family Fun Zone returns to the fair again this year to give families an opportunity for free, oldfashioned fun. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Fun Zone, and organizers will celebrate its success with more activities for kids (and adults) of all ages.

“The Fun Zone has been an important part of the fair for 10 years because families have a place to come and play together all day,” said Martha Tiller, the Special Projects Manager of The Bulletin and coordinator of the Fun Zone. “It’s safe, fun and free.” The large area on which it takes place features a covered stage with a sound system and seating, a large field for playing games, and interactive exhibits. Events such as three-legged races, a bean bag toss and sack races remain an integral part of the Fun Zone, maintaining an old-fashioned

feel. The Fun Zone is completely free, and the games provide opportunities to earn prizes to be used elsewhere at the fair. Highlights of this year’s Fun Zone include Cowboy Boot Camp, an educational and fun Old West exhibit that teaches kids how to dress like a cowboy or cowgirl and learn about agriculture. Sudsy’s Barn is an interactive handwashing station with animals to keep everyone clean and cool at the fair. The Cutest Show on Earth will also make its debut

(daily) at the fair this year, giving children the opportunity to dress as their favorite animals and perform in front of fair goers — definitely a site to see! Of course, old favorites will be returning as well: Smokey Bear, pie eating contests, water balloon tosses and the cake walk, to name a few. Mike Duggan, owner of DD Ranch near Terrebonne, said his ranch will contribute “chickens, bunnies, a baby calf, a pony with foal, baby goats and baby pigs” to the petting zoo. Ever wondered how to play lacrosse? Ridgeview High School lacrosse players will also be stopping by to demonstrate the sport and pass water balloons with their lacrosse sticks. The Bulletin Family Fun Zone “brings back the oldfashioned feel of the fair” according to Tiller, adding that in the Fun Zone, there is no technology, no cell phones, just “the whole family enjoying each other’s company in the sun.”

FOUR ST RAIGHT D AYS OF

RODEO EXCITEMEN

by Gregg Morris , for The Bulletin

The Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo is back for its 94th year at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds Wednesday, July 31 through Sunday, Aug. 4. While families are excited to experience the carnival rides, cowboys across the west are getting ready for rides of a different nature, rodeo rides. The Deschutes County Rodeo is free with your admission to the Fair. Fair tickets for adults are $10/day or $19 for a five-day pass. Children ages six to twelve and seniors over the age of 62 are $6 each day or $11 for a five day pass while kids five and under are free. Sunday’s entry is just five dollars for everyone. The rodeo pre-show begins at 7 p.m. each night, followed by the rodeo at 7:30 p.m. The 2013 Deschutes County Rodeo is a top-tier event sanctioned by the Northwest Pro Rodeo Association. As has become the tradition, the Rodeo picked up another, “Rodeo of the Year” award last year. That makes ten such awards in the last eleven years. ”What really makes this rodeo special is the work done by the committee,” says Randy Amis, rodeo director. “They work very hard to make sure everything runs smoothly. We have a great staff, great fairgrounds and the highest purse around.” The entries for the annual event opened July 23. While there is no way of knowing who the list of competitors will include, they are expecting some of the top cowboys and cowgirls in the west to throw their hat into the ring. “We get riders from Oregon, Texas, Nevada, California, Washington, Idaho, Arizona, Utah and Wyoming,” says Randy. “I am seeing a lot of new names that I am not familiar with.” Randy does expect some strong local talent to join

in the fun. Last year’s Saddle Bronc champion, Mark Gage will put down his horseshoes and come to Redmond. Meanwhile, Idaho’s Brian Martin, current leader in the Saddle Bronc standings, will challenge Mark for the title. Also expected are Terrebonne’s Sam Willis and his daughters, Stevie Rae Willis and Sammie Jo Cardoza.

The 2013 Deschutes County Rodeo is a top-tier event sanctioned by the Northwest Pro Rodeo Association. Sam is the winningest cowboy in NPRA history. New this year at the rodeo is the novice divisions for both Bareback and Saddle Bronc. Both beginner level events aim to attract more cowboys to the sport.

Special Projects

Terrebonne resident, Kedo Olson will announce this year’s rodeo. Olson is a National Senior Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame Radio Announcer. This year’s total purse remains close to $50,000 for the ropers and riders who are also looking to gain some much deserved respect from their fellow competitors. Most of the professionals cross paths throughout the year as they travel across the west to compete in some of the over 40 NRPA-sanctioned rodeos. All of the athletes are searching for a spot in the Championship finals, held annually in September. Chute #9 will be back this year, allowing the spectators to mingle with the some of the competitors in a very informal atmosphere. Chute #9 allows for a special connection between the cowboys and fans as they swig beers and listen to music. Portland’s country-singing cowboy Kurt Van Meter will perform both Friday and Saturday nights. The 2013 Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo Queen is Jessie Foster, while Clay Penhollow will serve as this year’s grand marshal. Both say they are proud to be ambassadors for the 2013 Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo. Between the barrel racer’s speed, bronc and bull rider’s strength, and the roping team’s skill, the rodeo has something to offer for everyone.

2013 Grand Marshal:

Clay Penhollow by Gregg Morris, for The Bulletin

When choosing the grand marshal for the Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo, the board looks for characteristics that will serve them well. They try to pick locals who have a history of contributions to the fair as well as the community in general. The 2013 Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo Grand Marshal, Clay Penhollow, fits this bill. “Clay’s been involved in 4-H all of his life,” said Craig Unger, fair board president. “He’s a native of Redmond and a third-generation grand marshal.” Penhollow was born and raised in Redmond and, except for his college years, has lived in Central Oregon all of his life. He currently works as a natural resources planner for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. “I got involved in 4-H as a child because we lived on a farm and my cousins were already involved,” Penhollow said. “They’re a good organization for youth to learn life skills such as record keeping, speaking in public and meeting deadlines.” His interest in 4-H expanded and lead him to become involved with the Deschutes County Fair during the early 1970s. In the 1980s, Penhollow began to help his dad, Carroll, and his uncle Mike at the 4-H/FFA Auction Buyers Barbecue. He then assumed the role of BBQ pit boss. He quickly learned livestock carcass evaluation and continues to assist with contests, passing down his knowledge to those interested. He has filled the role of ringmaster for the 4-H beef division and helped out with the draft horses at the parade and rodeo performances.

Penhollow also serves on the 4-H Oregon State Fair Advisory Committee and is a member of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Posse. “I also like to hunt and fish,” he said. “I have a labrador retriever that likes to go hunt for waterfowl and other birds.” Grand marshal duties are vast, but they all center around promoting the fair and rodeo. “We’ve done a bunch of parades, like the Crooked River Roundup, Sisters, Jefferson County as well as the Deschutes County Fair,” Penhollow said. In what is probably a first for the Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo, Penhollow is a third-generation family member to be honored to serve as Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo Grand Marshal. In 1985, Penhollow’s grandfather, Rev. D.L. “Penny” Penhollow, was grand marshal. Then, in 2006, Penhollow’s uncle, Mike Penhollow, a former fair director, held the position. The role of grand marshal is an important one, as it puts a face to the almost century-old tradition. But it’s more than that. “In the past, the Grand Marshal title was more of an honorary one,” Penhollow said. “Now, they try to pick people who are very involved in the fair and rodeo. I am happy to be chosen.”

2013 Deschutes Fair & Rodeo Queen:

Jessie Foster by Molly Hover, for The Bulletin

The roaring crowd is hushed as the rodeo queen rides into the arena. Heart beating fast, she takes a deep breath, grips the reins tighter in her left hand, and waves confidently with her right hand. “It’s just me, my horse, and the crowd,” said Jessica Foster, the 2013 Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo Queen. Foster has had a love for horses and the rodeo throughout her entire 19 years. Although many things have changed in her life since she moved away for college last year, Foster maintains the values that “rodeo queens are role models, speakers, and cowgirls.” After graduating from Summit High School last spring, Foster began her college career at the University of Oregon and is currently studying public relations in the Journalism School while playing on an intramural soccer team, joining the Delta Gamma sorority and working for the U of O newspaper, The Daily Emerald. Her year has been checkered with many visits home to fulfill her duties as a queen — “traveling to various rodeos, pageants, coronations and events promoting the rodeo” — and for calming rides on her beloved horse, Keeper. In high school, Foster participated in choir, soccer, 4H, the school newspaper and, of course, the Oregon High School Equestrian Team for which she competed in the state championship her senior year. Prior to becoming this year’s

rodeo queen, Jessie was also named the 2012 Jefferson County Fair and Rodeo Queen. According to Kathy Russell, the Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo queen advisor, tryouts are rigorous and the applicants are judged for their horsemanship, orating skills, interview, and application. Russell said Foster is a “well-rounded young lady...she is one of those people who can talk to a young child and speak at a large luncheon.” These skills, evaluated at tryouts in the Juniper Arena, led to her crowning. To Foster, “the most important thing is to be a role model” and show little girls that they can become a rodeo queen one day, as well. “Being a rodeo queen has helped me be so much more confident in myself and my ability to communicate with various people,” said Foster, who added that she lives by the motto, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” She hopes to ride this philosophy all the way to the pro rodeo circuit, where she aspires to make it as a barrel racer. “I don’t know what I would do without the support of my family,” Foster said. “They have been such a light in my travels as a rodeo queen and an individual. I just wanted to thank my family for giving me strength and loving me.”

Home-Cooked Tradition The Buckaroo Breakfast is an event celebrated and supported through generations. by Molly Hover, The Bulletin Special Projects | Photos courtesy of Buckaroo Breakfast

During the early years of the Buckaroo Breakfast at the Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo — when breakfast was just 75 cents a person — the event helped in the war bond effort that united the country during World War II. Today, the Bill Frost Country Music Band has replaced the military bands but the spirit of the event is intact while Oregonians (and perhaps some outof-staters) enjoy a home-cooked meal prepared by volunteers. Sizzling bacon, fluffy pancakes, and steaming aromatic coffee are all smells many have come to associate with the Buckaroo Breakfast over its 69-year history. Throughout this time, the event has become not only a tradition, but its ingrained in the history of Central Oregon. This year, the Buckaroo Breakfast will be held on Sunday, Aug. 4 from 6 to 10 a.m. at the Deschutes County Fair — in an area just north of the main fair

CLASSIC CARNIVAL RIDES

Fair Carnival Fun!

With more than 30 years of providing the rides and games that make up the enormously popular carnival area, Funtastic Traveling Shows has had a lot of time to impress the management team of the Deschutes County Fair. “Good, clean, honest carnival companies are very hard to come by,” said Ross Rogers, marketing director for the fair. “And these guys are at the top of their game.” The feeling is mutual. “Deschutes County Fair is one of the greatest county fairs in the state,” said Ron Burback, one of the original founders of Funtastic. And he would know, having been in the carnival business since 1973 with contracts all over the West, including the Oregon State Fair. Funtastic is family-owned and operated (Burback now leaves the heavy lifting of his business to his son and daughter) and the respect the company has earned over the years has created very strong extended ties

that includes the team at Deschutes County Fair. “They are just like family to us here,” said Rogers. The strong sense of family and community that Funtastic promotes extends to the staff hired for each event, which normally consists of 80 percent local employees. “When you are walking and see your neighbor or son or daughter working at a game you aren’t worried about someone flim-flamming you,” said Burback. Rogers agrees. “We want a good, clean fair and that is what Funtastic provides. They have good customer service and their rides are safe and in great shape.” Funtastic will be provding 25 major rides at the fair, including some new ones that Rogers wasn’t quite yet ready to divulge. The carnival area of the fair is open daily from 11 a.m to close, and there are specials to keep an eye out for; details are listed to the right. — Bridget McGinn, for The Bulletin

entrance. The cost for breakfast has increased from its original 75 cents per person, currently set at a stillreasonable $8 per adult and $5 per child. Buckaroo Breakfast coordinators Kerry and Sue Fuller are in charge of this year’s event, though the couple has been involved with the event for years. Their current jobs are to organize and make sure everything “goes off without a hitch,” according to Sue Fuller. Among delegating jobs to the 200 volunteers, the Fullers make sure the breakfast runs like a well oiled machine. Many of these volunteers begin work at 11 p.m. the night before the breakfast peeling potatoes, preparing the wood-burning stoves (on which all the food is cooked), and preparing the area for the approximately 1,700 people who annually attend. Sue adds that this is “not a drive-through, order-itand-go kind of thing.” It’s about enjoying the community with good food and vibrant music.

Since the beginning of the Buckaroo Breakfast in 1944, many things have changed (think sugarreduced syrup, for example), but the mission of this tradition has remained: serving people a “good old-fashioned buckaroo breakfast,” Sue said. The families that have been involved for generations, such as the Ron Nichols family, are a testament to the lively atmosphere and memories that the breakfast creates. The Nichols family has been contributing to the Buckaroo Breakfast for more than 50 years and has seen it evolve. Robert Nichols was persuaded by his Uncle Wilbur to help out with the event. “Wilbur has passed on [but] members of the family have picked up the torch to carry on,” Robert Nichols said. Though most of the active Nichols members live out of the area, they nonetheless remain true to the tradition, peeling potatoes with the shredding device Wilbur invented years ago. According to Robert, the years have seen a marked decrease in participation, but the volunteers who help out annually form what he calls a “more cohesive group.” For him personally, the Buckaroo Breakfast is a means of keeping the torch burning and gathering with family during each season of the Deschutes County Fair and Rodeo. On a larger scale, he said the camaraderie and sense of community that’s inherent with the event “promotes the theme of the area” for locals and visitors alike.

Fair is tradition, and what is a tradition without food, even if eating it does make you feel a bit guilty? “It’s rewarding to see a kid from years past bring his or her own child back to our stand,” said Michael Callahan, owner of Beaver State Burritos, which is celebrating its 30th year at the fair.

A FAIR TRADITION: DON CHAPIN’S DOVES Central Oregon pigeon fancier has released doves during the Deshutes County Fair’s opening ceremony for 15 years.

The

DOVE

WHISPERER Story & Photos by Raimie Hedman, for The Bulletin

Each year at the Deschutes County Fair, dozens of beautiful white doves are released into the sky during the opening ceremonies. And each year those doves — which are in fact domesticated white homing pigeons — all end up back at the home of

Don Chapin. “That’s the reason it works,” says the 67-year-old Central Oregon pigeon fancier, ”because they come home after you let them go.” Chapin, along with his wife Mary, owns Spirit Loft, a white bird release

business in Redmond. The Deschutes County Fair isn’t just another gig for the Chapins; it’s the reason they began raising and releasing the white pigeons in the first place, 15 years ago. “Our kids were in 4-H, and we were showing pigeons at the fair when

someone asked if we could release them for the opening ceremony,” he said. The Chapins agreed, and thus began a Deschutes County tradition that has continued nearly every year since.


Release the Pigeons

Don Chapin’s penchant for pigeons began at 10 years old when he started catching and raising street pigeons in Eugene. After domesticating the birds, he would sell them for 50 cents apiece to bird hunters to help flush train hunting dogs. As soon as the birds were released, they would fly back home to their homemade cage. “I was renting them, really,” says Chapin, explaining that he would later sell the same birds over and over again, often to the same trainers. He soon moved from pigeon rental to pigeon racing, a hobby that he’s maintained for the past 50 years. Each year he participates in a handful of friendly competitions where contestants’ pigeons are simultaneously released from a distant location with radio tags attached to their legs. When the birds return home to roost, the tags register the arrival times, and the distanceto-time ratio (usually yards per minute) is calculated to determine the birds’ speeds. Chapin has raced pigeons for most of his life, winning multiple races, but it wasn’t until that day at the fair 15 years ago that he

“I do it because the people that attend that event want me to do it. They want to see the doves.” became involved with white bird release. His first task was to gather enough white birds, which required intensive breeding. Pigeons, or rock doves as they’re called in the wild, are naturally gray with black and white markings. “You start with a bird with white feathers and just keep breeding and working the white,” says Chapin. After enough selective breeding, you end up with white doves suitable for release. Today, in addition to the

Deschutes County Fair, Chapin releases his domesticated white doves for weddings, funerals and memorials all around Oregon. True to their name, the homing pigeons make their way back to their Redmond roost after each event, but not without some training in between. Each day, Chapin gathers and crates his birds, drives a short distance from home, and releases them. The exercise ensures that the doves are in tip-top shape for events such as a recent wedding

Volunteers to help you get around the fair “The Expo Center is so big, it can be difficult for senior citizens to get around and see all of the exhibits,” said Terry Burgess, organizer of the Honored Citizens Golf Car Shuttle program at the Deschutes County Fair. With that in mind, Terry, along with a group of concerned citizens, started the program to ensure everyone has a good time at the fair. The Honored Citizen Golf cars program has supplied cars and drivers to the fair ever since the new Expo Center was

built in 1999. Many of the drivers have helped out since the program’s inception. The 15 golf cars are sponsored by local businesses, which place their logos on banners to affix to the cars. “It’s because of the help of people like Terry Burgess that we are able to partner with local businesses to provide more accessibility to our senior citizen participants,” says Ross Rogers, marketing coordinator for the fair.

The golf cars are also available to assist with any medical emergencies or help people with limited mobility. “I’d say thousands of senior citizens take advantage of them each year,” Burgess said. “Without the wheelchairs, it would be very difficult for senior citizens, as well as any injured folks, to experience the fair to its fullest extent,” said Rogers. “We are very proud to have the golf cars available, as we have for the last 12 years.”

Chapin attended in Fossil, 70 miles east of Redmond as the dove flies. (The rest of us are relegated to 100 miles of roads and highways.) “They were already here when I got home,” says Chapin, “but they had a 30-minute head start.”

W ith a scant 6-mile flight home, the opening ceremony of the Deschutes County Fair is just another day of training for the doves, but it means much more to Chapin. “It’s an interesting event,” he said. “The vets do color guard and play taps, the National Anthem plays — it’s all very patriotic.” It’s during the National Anthem that Chapin releases his 40 to 50 doves symbolically towards the American flag. And unlike with the bird hunters of his youth, Chapin doesn’t charge a penny. “I do it because the people that attend that event want me to do it,” he said. “They want to see the doves.”

OPEN CLASS COMPETITIONS

THE

CLASS

by Bridget McGinn, for The Bulletin Want to see the biggest carrot grown in Deschutes County this year? How about the Supreme Champion Fleece? A visit to the fair just isn’t complete without viewing the open class (not 4H or FFA) entries and award-winners. Anyone interested in exhibiting at the fair is welcome to submit entries at no cost, and the abundance of competitive open classes for both livestock and nonlivestock categories with cash prizes and ribbons draws people of all ages and abilities. “Last year we had a lot of firsttimers,” said Rachel McIntosh, the Deschutes County Fair Association

OF THE

Director responsible for the open class non-livestock departments. “That is a good thing, it is just so much fun.” In addition to viewing the livestock exhibits (departments include Beef Cattle, Dairy Cattle, Sheep, Wool, Poultry, Rabbits, Cavies, Llamas/Alpacas, Goats and Goat Fiber Fleeces) be sure to tour the South Sister Building to see the non-livestock entries (departments include Land and Farm Products, Floral, Baked Goods and Confections, Food Preservation, Wine, Cheese and Beer, and Clothing and Textiles, Fiber Arts, Handcrafts, Ceramics, Fine Arts, and Kids Corner). McIntosh said that it is hard to predict which departments will be popular,

FAIR

as it changes every year depending on current trends. Photography and Clothing and Textiles have been large departments in recent years, and Food Preservation will have quite a few new entries this year as a result of classes being offered through the extension program. Given the high interest in the region for home brewing, McIntosh also expects that Wine, Cheese and Beer-one of the newest departments — to see a higher number of entries. “This year I don’t expect that we will see the same number of Land and Farm Products because of the cold, wet spring,” she said. “But the floral entries always vary with the weather so people will bring what is growing well in their

garden or greenhouse.” Highlights this year include special awards for the tallest sunflower and for the cake that best represents the theme of the fair. Everyone is invited to cast a vote for their favorite quilt, and families are invited to stop by the Kids Corner to not only view submitted work but to participate in craft activities. And don’t forget to check out the always popular Crazy Critters area to see the wildly imaginative display of animals made out of fresh vegetables and fruit submitted by youth 18 and under. There is definitely something for everyone to enjoy in the open class exhibits. To learn more, visit www. expodeschutes.org.

DESCHUTES COUNTY 4-H PROGRAMS

NOT YOUR

PARENTS’ 4-H by Gregg Morris, for The Bulletin For more than a century, the 4-H Youth Development Organization has provided projects and programs to children throughout the U.S. Today, 4-H partners with the National Institute of Food and Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is in every state across the nation. While they are historically rooted in farming programs, 4-H serves youths in rural, urban and suburban communities with programs ranging from agriculture to engineering. “4-H is a youth development program,” said Deschutes County 4-H Program Coordinator Candi Bothum. “People in Deschutes County know how important that is in their kid’s lives.” Deschutes County 4-H officially became a nonprofit organization in May of 1964. As part of Oregon State University Extension, Deschutes County 4-H has between 900 and 1,000 traditional members and roughly 600 kids in after-school programs. It has grown into one of the largest and most diverse 4-H programs in the western U.S. “We will allow most projects kids want to pursue,” said Bothum. “We emphasize being a youth development program with a focus on life skills and character building.” Deschutes County 4-H currently has close to 35 active projects, with horse and swine programs being the most popular. Several of these programs have grown alongside today’s economic, political, and social climates. For

example, as gun ownership increases in popularity, so does the 4-H shooting programs. Also adding to the raised interest in shooting among girls, especially archery, was the popular movie, “Hunger Games.” The poultry program has become even more popular due to the rise of the sustainability movement in the U.S.

Variety of Summer Camps

Deschutes County 4-H has partnered with the Redmond, Bend and Sisters area parks and recreation departments to offer a wide array of summer camps throughout Central Oregon. The 14 camps run four days a week, either full or half days. About 300 kids will participate this summer. Day Camps include Cascade Wilds, LEGO Robotics & Science, Competition LEGO Robotics, Photography, Under Water Robotics and Horticulture.

Science and Technology

The 4-H Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) program exposes children to opportunities within these disciplines. Through after-school classes and summer camps, kids build self-confidence and self-esteem, while building Lego robotic vehicles. Last year’s summer camps hosted 75 Central Oregon children and culminated with the first Lego League competition. The attendees have fun with drag races, hill climbs and other creative electronic kit activities.

Cloverbuds

For kids in kindergarten through third grades, the

Oregon Cloverbuds Program offers activity focused programs that are built on cooperative learning rather than competition. There are currently 75 Central Oregon kids involved in Cloverbuds. Cloverbuds members do not compete in competitive events, and their projects are not judged. “It’s intended to be a program where they can try out various 4-H opportunities,” said Bothum. “We try to generate interest in all of the various programs 4-H has.”

4-H Commitment

Behind each program created or project approved is a volunteer project leader donating time to enrich the children’s lives. Deschutes County 4-H has 230 volunteer leaders who devote between five and 20 hours each month. “I was a Deschutes County 4-H’er,” Bothum said. “Then, I was a volunteer leader. I held several offices. Then, I became a staff member 19 years ago. I am extremely passionate about 4-H because I believe it to be one of the best youth enrichment programs around.” One of the best attributes of 4-H is that children of all levels can participate and find success within their programs. Their members learn not only specific project skills, but general life skills as well. For more information on 4-H programs, please visit http://extension.oregonstate.edu/deschutes/deschutescounty-4-h-program or call Bothum at 541-548-6088, ext. 7954. “4-H is an investment in our most important resource, the youth,” Bothum said.

A special way to be a part of the

Deschutes County Fair In our fast-paced world with its high-tech, complicated communication systems and travel, we tend to lose track of the simpler side of life. It’s amazing though, how words can conjure up memories of sights, sounds, and smells that instantly take us back to our childhood. Every year since

1919, these memories have been made for all Central Oregonians; generation after generation, families have benefited either through participation in or just enjoying a day together, at the County Fair. The Deschutes CountyFair is not run by a professional organization that goes

from town to town. It is run by the local fair association, with support from, 4-H volunteer leaders, FFA advisors, fair board, fair & expo staff, and volunteers. Your friends and neighbors, sharing their time to provide a vehicle to recognize the hard work of the youth involved. The Fair Association was established to run the county fair. Our local fair association consists of 30 volunteers who work hard to make sure the fair runs smoothly. You can’t miss them — they’re the hard working ones in the red vests. 4-H is one of the largest out-of-school youth programs in the Nation. It encourages youth to learn by doing, be it through animal science, home economics, art, or other project area. It helps youth, grades k-12, develop life skills through projects, leadership activities, and community service opportunities. In Deschutes County, 4-H serves and supports over 1,000 youth, their families and 200+ volunteer leaders. The OSU Extension Service is a program, through Oregon State University, that offers several local program areas,

including: forestry, small farms, commercial and residential horticulture and the master gardener program, a foods and nutrition education program, and, of course, youth development through the 4-H program. Within these programs, Extension offers many services and activities to the community to extend educational opportunities. FFA is a program offered to high school students in Bend, Redmond, and Sisters. It develops leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. FFA has been in existence for more than 70 years. In our county there are over 300 students involved. FFA Alumni is an affiliate to the FFA program; their purpose is to support agriculture programs and instructors with scholarships and project assistance and to send FFA members to state and national leadership conferences. The FFA Alumni work together with FFA advisors, as judges, guest speakers and activity coordinators.

Your Money at Work The 4-H/FFA Livestock Auction Committee developed this information to explain the Livestock Market Auction to prospective buyers and to recognize buyers who support the program. The 4-H and FFA Livestock Market Sale is organized to provide a special opportunity for 4-H and FFA young people to sell their market animals. All money spent for livestock will be paid to the 4H/FFA member, except five percent of the gross sale,

which will be used for sale overhead costs, and to help provide needed equipment, scholarships and supplies for the FFA and 4-H programs, when funds are available. Profits from the sale of these members’ livestock are often reinvested in high quality animals or set aside for future educational expenses. As a buyer, you are investing in 4-H and FFA members’ future; encouraging them to continue their life of

learning, work ethic, responsibility and accountability. In addition to their market projects, these members are engaged in character-building, life skill and leadership activities through which they learn community involvement, citizenship, public speaking, record keeping, accountability and responsibility in an outstanding, safe and educational atmosphere

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Attend in Person: The excitement and drama of the auction is an unforgettable experience. Auction committee members and ring stewards will be on hand to assist. Proxy: You can do so by completing a proxy buyer form specifying your bid. This pledge will allow a person of your choice to place a bid in your behalf. This form needs to be filled out and turned in at the bidder table, so your buyer can get a bidder number. Proxy forms are available at the Deschutes OSU Extension Office or under the auction tab at www. deschutes4h.com. Group Purchasing: If you and other interested buyers wish to pool resources, this is possible by purchasing as a group. If more than 2 buyers are “pooling” their resources, one bidder number MUST be acquired. Every effort will be made to recognize all contributors. Add Ons: Anyone may “add on” to a specific exhibitor or group of exhibitors. An “add on” form must be completed and turned in, no later than the close of auction on Saturday. This form will not be accepted without payment. Checks for “add ons” should be made payable to Redmond FFA Alumni. The “add on” form and payment may be turned into the 4-H office on the fairgrounds (North Sister building) or at the FFA Alumni table near the “bank”during the sale. They may also be mailed to the Alumni at PO Box 1423, Redmond, OR 97756. Forms are available at the Deschutes County OSU Extension Office and at www.redmondffaalumni.com. Silent Auction: Members of 4-H and FFA who do not have a market animal project, may enter an alternative item, they created, in the silent auction. This may be a basket of

baked goods, a metal or wood fabrication project, a fiber project, or one of many other possibilities. Members are only allowed one entry in the auction, so if they have a livestock entry, they will not have a silent auction entry. The silent auction takes place during the barbecue 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. All other buying procedures, payment terms, etc. is the same as the livestock auction. Purchasing: Be sure to stop by the bidder table to sign up for a bidder number, before the sale begins or before you intend to bid. (You will need this bidder number before you bid on silent auction items as well. You can find a “bidder” table at the official “bank” across from the swine ring. (only a short distance from the BBQ) When you wish to place a bid on the animal in the ring, raise your hand until a ring-man or auctioneer acknowledges your bid. Bids are based on dollars per pound. The buyer is the highest bidder. Upon being recognized as the buyer you will be asked for the bidder number and the bidder name. The auctioneer will announce your name or your business name depending on how you registered your bidder number. Quality of meat. All animals are Select or better as determined by a professional judge’s evaluation of the live animal. The animal after the sale. Following the sale, usually on Sunday morning, all market animals are humanely loaded and hauled to their USDA inspected destination. (This is NOT optional, all animals are shipped.) Later in the week, custom carcasses are shipped back for local cutting and wrapping.

HOW TO PAY: Please come prepared to pay for your purchase(s) the night of the sale; checks should be made payable to: Deschutes County 4-H/FFA Livestock Auction or we accept Visa and Mastercard; Redmond’s Branch of Washington Federal Bank sponsors our “bank” at the sale.

This is a terminal sale. Buyers have 2 options:

Custom Processing: Buyers may prefer to have their purchase processed for their own consumption. All animals are USDA inspected. Every effort is made to be sure you receive the animal you bid on. If an error occurs, the buyer will receive a refund of the meat value (floor price x live weight, not bid price) or will receive an equal or better quality carcass. A list of local processors will be available at the sale.

Resale: A buyer may resell the animal to the auction’s commercial buyer at the resale price. The buyer then pays the difference between the resale price and the amount bid. Actual commercial or “floor” prices will be available at the sale. Example of a “Resale” purchase: Live hog weight is 275 pounds Buyer bids: $2.50/lb = $687.50 Less resale price, 250 x .50* = $125.00 Buyer Pays: $ 562.50** *Resale prices will vary from year to year; actual prices are available at the sale. **Check with your tax preparer, this amount may be tax deductible

Example of a “Custom” purchase: Live hog weight is 275 pounds Buyer bids: $2.50/lb = $687.50 Kill Fee: $75.00* Buyer Pays: $762.50** *Kill fees vary from year to year, actual cost is available at the sale **Buyers are also responsible for any cutting and wrapping costs associated with their animal.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS: Floor Price: The amount the animal can be resold for. This is per pound for all species. Shrink: The amount the animal will lose during fair and travel,

based on an industry standard. The weights in the sale catalog will reflect this shrinkage. This means the weights shown are the pounds you will pay for.

Bid Price: The amount you agree to pay. This will be a dollar per pound figure times the total weight of the animal less shrinkage.

Terminal Sale: This means all animals must be slaughtered. No animals sold in the auction may go home live for production or further finishing.

Custom Processing: This means you have chosen to keep the meat and would like it cut and wrapped at a local plant of your choice. (All beef, sheep goats & swine will be slaughtered at a USDA, federally inspected plant, but carcasses will return to Central Oregon to be cut and wrapped at a facility of your choice.) Resale: This means you have chosen not to receive the meat back. The animal is sold to the “resale buyer” (this is the company that floored the sale). You pay the difference between floor price and bid price.
