Nice to see George and Tanya and their ever expanding family, (grandkids now), Fearless Fred who is predicting a long snowy winter, Ted and Mary, Sam and Gunnar, Jack (photographer of photo at bottom of blog) was one of the volunteers directing parking. Andrea and Greg - haven't seen them for ages - Andrea was the Nancy Greene Coach for Crystal Mountain for years, now working at Big White. She'll be here for some Baldy pow this winter.
I was looking at the Fair from a different perspective this time - our geology club was looking at facilities, electricity in the field etc, as we plan a provincial Rock Hound event there in 2018. The closer you look at the operation, the more impressive it is in terms of a huge amount of organization and work, done by a huge crowd of volunteers, in a small community
So many additions and improvements to the fair grounds since I played there in the school band in the 70's!
