    Truly sad, but we have commitments to the Troop.

    Was hoping to meet you...well, some other time.

    Yes. Definitely sad.

    What is up with the fair this year? new promoter or something? Everything seems different. and when I asked my elder daughter who stayed how it was she said it seemed like there was a lot less this year.

    Not sure about promoter, and am assuming the security is due to recent BS around the world (all the more reason to be armed).

    Vendor participation is down, exhibits are about 75% of what I am used to seeing, food prices have gone stupid high (I will not purchase food at the fair with the exception of cotton candy and a funnel cake for the kiddos...I can get a better, bigger meal at The Hotel or Renegades for about the same price). Haven't gone to the ride side yet, been busy with the Scout stand...the above observations are from the exhibit side (barn and to the right if facing the school). I took a short break to walk that side...usually can kill 15 minutes...yesterday; about 5 and done.

    And despite the beautiful weather, the crowd is smaller than usual. I know folks are on the lake, etc., but they usually are more than yesterday. Maybe with the lake being so low folks have already pulled out for the season?
    Plus the parking stinks since that parcel of land on the right is no longer available for parking. Not begrudging the guy owning it, I just miss the shorter walk... LOL!

    I'm guessing the economy has a lot to do with it. Been a pretty quiet summer...again.
