Ever since we moved here, we wanted to participate in the loca fair. It wasn’t until 2 years ago that we actually did. This year is our third year. Today we went to the fair grounds to see who won what. This is not extensive and some of the things we don’t know if they placed or not. The 4th and 5th place winners get participant ribbons. They were labeling items while we were there, so I’m not sure about a few of them. Anyway, here goes… in random order….
Charlotte’s scrapbook took a first place and best of show!!! (No on in the family has ever had a best of show ribbon before this year!)
James’ homemade puppet collection. His ribbon is the blue for first place, not the white. (Unless he also got 3rd place for something there? I don’t know!)
Kevin’s “Helm’s Deep” from Lord of the Rings won second place in the model category. Personally I think they should have a separate lego category as so many come in.
Charlotte’s Marian shrine made out of popsicle sticks won 3rd place and MaryEllens’ decroated popsicle sticks won 1st in the small wood category.
James’s decorative wooden ax won 1st place in large woodwork.
Kevin’s collection of Lord of the Rings lego figures. (ed. to add. 4th place in collections.)
Jame’s photo of the soldier won first place in photo of a person or persons. I’ll see if I can find the original photo since my flash ruined it here.
Kevin’s Frist Place in Any other Painting (It was Acrilic and they didn’t have a category for that) won Best of Show!!!
