Judging

 

  • All judging will commence at 8:00 AM Wednesday and will continue until completed. Exhibitors will therefore govern themselves accordingly and will not communicate with the judges. All livestock will be judged in a ring prepared for that purpose. Exhibitors must have stock ready at time stated above.
  • For convenience of judges, all stock, vegetables and fruit must be arranged in form so that each class will be together.
  • Competing stock and articles must be arranged as directed by the person in charge promptly at the hour for examination, and owners who do not conform to this regulation will not be entitled to premium money.
  • No person will be allowed to act as judge who is in any way interested in the entries to be judged.
  • Judges are expected to act with the most rigid impartiality in the execution of their duties.
  • All prizes, ribbons or cards which have been affixed by the judges must be displayed during the Fair. Any infraction of this rule will cause the forfeiture of any premium awarded.
  • ANY EXHIBITOR CON- VERSING OR OTHERWISE INTERFERING WITH THE JUDGES WHILE ON DUTY WILL FORFEIT ANY RIGHT HE OR SHE MAY HAVE TO A PRIZE, AND IT SHALL BE THE DUTY OF THE JUDGES TO REPORT TO THE CLERK OF THE FAIR OR IN THE BOOKS OF ANY INFRINGEMENT OF THIS RULE.
  • Ribbons, representing premiums and specifying names of fair, will be attached to prize exhibits in horses and cattle classes, by the judges, at time of examination. Cards will be affixed to other prize exhibits.
  • In all cases, the award will be according to merit at the discretion of the judges.
  • Any article or animal entered in wrong class by the exhibitor forfeits all right to premium.
  • No premiums will be awarded unless the article is meritorious.
  • Any exhibitor lodging a protest must make it in writing, and deliver it to the President or Clerk of the Fair, within three hours of the cause of the protest. The cause of the complaint must be stated plainly and must be accompanied by a deposit of five dollars, which sum will be forfeited to the Fair Association, if the protest is not sustained. A Committee on Protests shall be designated by the President of the Association and the decision of this committee shall be final.
  • Upon discovery of any fraud, deception, dishonest practice or misrepresentation in regard to any exhibit which may have influenced or may have been intended to influence the decision of the judges, the executive committee has the power to withhold the payment of the prize awarded.
  • All premium checks will be mailed no later than two weeks after the fair. Any discrepancies in premium monies must be brought to the attention of the Superintendent of that show area no later than October 5th. Once the check has been cashed the premium for that show is final.
