Cattlemen’s COVID Classic Invitational Livestock Show
Where Becoming a Champion is Contagious!
Greetings from your 2019 N.E.W. Fair Beef Barn Superintendents, Jenna Barker-Olson & Jessica Jabaay.
We hope this finds you doing well during these uncertain times. After all the school closures, travel restrictions and fair cancellations we have some (hopefully) exciting news for you!
We have spent the past month or so trying to come up with something that can help fill the void of not having a fair this year, since there are no 4-H or FFA gatherings allowed due to Washington State restrictions on size of gatherings because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
So, we cordially INVITE your showman to the Cattlemen’s COVID Classic Invitational Livestock Show, Where Becoming a Champion is Contagious! This is an OPEN show – meaning there is NO correlation or connection to 4-H or FFA.
Below you will find some quick notes on date, place, time, etc.
The forms below need to be filled out COMPLETELY, signed and returned to Jenna Barker by July 18th, 2020. Forms may be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via regular mail to: 370 Spanish Prairie Rd. Colville, WA 99114
