Fair opens: From beginners to winners

By QCS Staff

Two-year old Kirksey Lynae Smith took the blue ribbon in the Mini-Booster category of the Shepherd’s Lead, one of the first competitions signaling the opening of the Quay County Fair.

Contestants must lead their sheep, and wear a garment that’s at least 50 percent wool. GiGi Parker coordinated the annual event.

Judging results for different departments from 4-Hers to sewing have also been announced.

In the Pie and Cake Silent Auction, the winner of the pie auction contest is Taylor Atwood with an Upside
Down Pecan Apple Pie. Bids will be taken on the pie until 8 p.m.
Saturday evening. The winning bidder will receive a fresh baked pie

Below are the results, which are listed by event and place.
