Clean up and Concessions

There are two sessions, one concession and one clean-up, during the week of the county show that our chapter is required to work. The shifts are on a rotation schedule from year to year and you can find our scheduled times below. You must attend your shift if you show a project or animal at the county show.


The clean-up: Wednesday after the rabbit show. Of course, we don't know the exact time the show will end, in the past it's over around 7:30pm. They moved the show up and hour this year, so we are guessing 6:30pm. Please be there by then.


Concessions: Friday - 4:00 pm- 7:00pm. This is shift is during the steer show so it is a busy one. We will need all students and thier parents help. Please wear a cap!



Monday, 1/9 -

Please get your feed ready for us the night before.

Your pig will be fed before loading by myself and Mauri. Mauri will be the only student at Myer's park all day. Her and I will feed and water pigs until you get there at 4:45.


PLEASE GET THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WHEN SCHOOL GETS OUT. Showmanship starts at 6:00 pm sharp. You need time to wash, prep, feed and water before showmanship.
