By now, ALL of you should have fulfilled your obligations by completing a Final Disposition Form for your project – Thank You!!!!
With that, the Fair Board will need to make an adjustment to the final disposition date >> the NEW Disposition Date for the Columbia and Floor trucks is Friday, April 3, 2020.
· PIG and STEER EXHIBITORS: Please feed your animals Thursday night, DO NOT SHOW UP TO FEED ON FRIDAY MORNING – WE WILL BE LOADING THEM OUT @ 8AM.
IF YOU SHOW UP DURING THIS TIME PERIOD, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE IMMEDIATLEY!!!
· For PIG EXHIBITORS that need to bring pigs in, please just put them into an open pen. No shavings are needed if its concrete -- just get them into a pen on Thursday sometime during the day or evening.
· RABBIT EXHIBITORS: Please put your caged rabbits with food and water in the first rollup door of the Upper Barn on the concrete – same spot you show each year. You may come back to get your cages sometime on Sunday.
Finally, ALL exhibitors that have used the barn for their projects need to come back and clean out your stalls and take you wood down from inside the pens on Sunday or after. Please have all your pens cleaned, equipment out of the feed room and barn by Friday, April 17, 2020.
The purpose of the Youth Fair of Rockwall, Inc. (“YFOR”) is to promote the education, constructive talents and leadership skills of the youth of the community by conducting clinics, training demonstrations, shows and auction sales for youth and to cooperate with the Rockwall County Extension Service, Rockwall County 4-H Clubs, Rockwall FFA Chapters, and other youth organizations of Rockwall Public Schools
It is with great sadness we inform you that the 2020 Youth Fair of Rockwall has been cancelled due to restrictions currently in place to stem the transmission of the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.
Multiple potential options to salvage this year’s show were discussed at length by the YFOR Board. However, in light of the current situation, no suitable options were found. In an effort to answer your many questions moving forward we have addressed many items below.
Please read this information thoroughly as time-sensitive action is required by all livestock exhibitors.
Should you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your Ag teacher, the County Extension office or any of the YFOR board members.
Contact information for people and action items listed below can be found at the bottom of this letter. Thank you in advance for your help and understanding in the days and weeks to come.
