On the Lassen County Fair blog, Fair Manager Jim Wol- cott said, "We are really hop- ing that people will come out and watch these people and have a good laugh. It is also a way for us to give back to the local charities; I think that is important." Lassen County Fair board member Tim Bruce is also chairing a committee to screen the contestants, devel- op an agenda for the contes- tants, and to try and collect more sponsorship money. Entry forms are due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 9, at the Lassen County Fair Office. Forms can be found at lassen- or at the Lassen County Fair Office lo- cated at 195 Russell Ave. "Our hope is that this com- petition will be a fun light- hearted event that everyone will come down to the fair and watch," said Wolcott. For more information con- tact the Lassen County Fair Office at 251-8900. This year's theme was also chosen because the fair asked residents to submit an outdoor theme highlighting the beauty of Lassen Coun- ty's great outdoors. Traditionally, the theme is incorporated all over the fair from the livestock barns to the Miss Lassen County pageant. Joyce Hopkins, whose theme was chosen for last year's fair, submitted this year's winning slogan. She said, "Since 'adven- ture' was the suggested idea for submitting a theme for the 2010 Lassen County Fair, lassen Environmental and Applied Partnership Program student Byron Treece designed the logo for this year's Lassen County fair theme, "An Amazing Race in an Outdoor Place." 'An Amazing Race to an Out- door Place' just seemed to fit. ... full of fun and adventure ... and it rhymed too!" Hopkins said she submit- ted about six themes and also included graphics to go with them. Since she retired from the United States Forest Ser- vice and just does occasional family slide shows for her business, Hopkins said she has had lots of time to be cre- ative. "I am so surprised and hap- py to win again," Hopkins said. Lassen Environmental and Applied Partnership Pro- gram student Byron Treece designed this year's fair logo. This year's fair will be held Wednesday through Sunday, July 21-25. Count Lassen County resident Joyce Hopkins submitted the winning theme for this year's fair.
