Put your creativity to the test at the Fall Fair

The Ashcroft Fall Fair would like to thank all the sponsors who provide quality prizes to make our competitions a little more challenging.

Could you be a big winner in our baking or canning entries at our Fall Fair on Sunday, Sept. 11? You will never know until you try.

It is easy to just sit back and think that you could never win, but providing good competition for all of the other entrants is also very important. The challenge may be to use your creativity and knowledge to improve your skills.  So … ready, set, create!

Here are some specially sponsored competitions which will be featured in our entry booklet this year: Fleischmann’s Yeast will sponsor the best loaf of bread, with winners in both the adult and youth categories. Mazola and BeeHive will sponsor the best cake loaf; Robin Hood will sponsor the best lunchbox cookies in two youth groups (8 and under, and 9-12), and the best family favourite cake; Crisco will sponsor the best muffins; Tenderflake – the best pie; Certo – the best jam or jelly; Bernardin – the best jam or jelly, the best gift pack, and the best decorative or functional homemade craft made from lids or jars. Bernardin will also award a “Best of Show” prize to the highest accumulated points or best canning entry as selected by our Fall Fair judges. The major stipulation with each of these competitions is that you use the products of the sponsors. In order to be considered in these categories, you must attach your proofs of purchase to your entry form. Be sure to check the rules and regulations for each contest in the entry booklet to be published in June, or on the website as the information becomes available: www.ashcroftfallfair.net

Perhaps Photography is your specialty. The Ashcroft Stampede and Rodeo on June 18-19 will provide great opportunities to take stunning action photos, worthy of competition. Also, look for the Fall Fair float in the Parade on June 18, and get ready to sample the apple treats given out by the membership. Join us in celebrating the activities in our community.
