With the passing of the Fair and Horse Show season there comes exultation of the past and the vision of the Future: 2018
The Fall weather is upon us and all the fairs and shows are completed. Holidays will soon be here and the planning for 2018 show season has started. The 2018 KY Association of Fairs and Horse Shows Convention and Trade Show is scheduled for January 18, 19, and 20th. See the 2018 KAFHS Convention Agenda for further information about the contents of the convention. Make your plans to come by and stay at the Galt House and attend the various sessions and the Trade Show. It is to your communities benefit to attend. The culmination of the Convention week is the Kentucky County Fair Pageant. The pageant is on Saturday, January 20th. Get your tickets.

The October meeting of the Board of Directors of KAFHS was completed with all the fanfare and exultation as usual. The 2017 Miss KY County Fair Miss Teen and PreTeen pageants were held with all the ceremony and excitement that the pageants could provide. Hallie Risch sponsored by Owen County Fair was crowned the PreTeen winner. Anesica Cox sponsored by Hardin County Fair was crowned the Miss Teen winner. Congratulations to these young ladies. All participants in each pageant deserve congratulations for winning at their local fair pageants and gaining the right to compete in these pageants. Congratulations!

All member fairs and shows should select or appoint a representative or committee for the procedure changes that are coming in 2018. Registering as a member will be on line for 2019. Members will not receive a packet as has been the norm in the past and currently. Efforts to move forward with the modern methods of information gathering from members of the Association are to be introduced in January. Implementation will occur during the year with major individual input of information in latter part of next year. Please make all effort to attend the Saffire introductions and implementations presentations during convention. Your attention and attendance at these sessions in January will ease the transition of data acquisition methods. This is a must see and attend session.

Remember and act: January 18,19, and 20th , 2018. Location: Galt House in downtown Louisville KY. The 2018 KY Association of Fairs and Horse Shows Convention and Trade Show with the 2018 Miss Kentucky County Fair pageant. Make your plans to attend.
