Fair rides out of town
In June 17 Issue

Another successful year at the Russell County Jaycees Fair has come and gone, according to second-year fair manager Robbie Morgan, who said attendance numbers were again near record totals.

“The general opinion we've gotten is that it was another great success with much participation,” Morgan said.

He said that, despite the bad weather last Wednesday, the weather cooperated with this year's schedule allowing many to enjoy the fun the fair had to offer.

Morgan said the early June fair dates were to accommodate the carnival folks, but that it appeared  many folks still like the June setup that has been the norm for several years now.

“We're the leader in fairs in this area,” he said. “Every night we had record attendance except for Wednesday night went it fell off due to the weather.”

Morgan said the grove was full each night and the midway another successful venture.

“We want to thank all of our supporters in the community, all the advertisers and vendors who helped make it possible,” he said.

The final few days of the fair saw events such as the small car demolition derby, professional wrestling, mixed martial arts, extreme truck competitions, horse racing, beef shows, mule pulls, 4-H events and a rodeo take center stage.

The following are fair results, courtesy of the Jaycees:

In the Extreme Truck competition, Brian Finn placed first in the modified class while Cody McGowan placed first in the stock class.

In the championship mule pull, first place went to Burton and Nall in the 2010 and under mules while 2210 and under went to Leffew and Son. First place in the 2510 and under category went to Beatty and Lancaster.

In the Russell County 4-H Shoot, Zach Walters won the 9-11 archery bowhunter, Marissia Roark won the 9-11 archery target, Alexis Cain won the 12-14 archery bowhunter, Shelby Franklin took the 12-14 archery target, Alex Marson won the 15-18 archery target and Brandon Roark won the 15-18 archery category.

In the Russell County Small Car Demolition Derby, James Walters took first place while Allen Chumbley took second and Shawn Birdwell took third. All are from Russell Springs. In the lawnmower demolition derby, Cody Burchett of Russell Springs took home the top overall spot.
