The Logan County Fair Board tied up loose ends at their final meeting before fair week Wednesday evening.
At the top of the agenda, the Board announced a work day scheduled for June 30th to prepare the fairgrounds for fair week. Logan County Fair Board President Skip Jackson says the fair has a lot to offer this year.

The second topic of discussion dealt with an issue with pig and calf scramble applications. There were 35 applications handed out this year and only six were turned in. Three girls and one boy applied for the pig scramble and only two boys applied for the calf scramble. Jackson says the low number of applicants is a mystery to him.

Instead of completely doing away with both scrambles, the Board decided to host a “youth pig scramble” and a “director’s pig scramble.” Directors from the Board volunteered to put on a “director’s pig scramble” in order to help fill the time slot that was left empty by the absence of a calf scramble.
The final issue of a shortage of rabbit and poultry cages was resolved by a Board member offering his own cages to use in the fair. Logan County’s cages were loaned to another county fair and not all were returned according to Jackson. Jackson says this is an issue since Logan County takes pride in their poultry and rabbit shows.
The Logan County Fair will be held July 9th through July 14th at the Logan County Fairgrounds.
