It was a hot one, but well attended with both spectators and horse entries. Coming down the the "wire" we were concerned because the number of early "chair setters" seemed to be low, but our concerns were unfounded. (Chair setters are those who bring there favorite sitting chairs and place them strategically around the show ring.
We also had great turnout of volunteers even though there was a competing jamboree right down the road. Parents and teachers would work their shift, then shoot off to be at the jamboree.
Thanks also to those who are the backbone of the show. They work many hours prior to, during and after the event to make sure things go as smoothly as possible and we collect as much as we can for our local youth.
This was the 106th Wartrace show and by the end of the show some of us feel as if we worked every one of them, back to back. This heat is always a concern, but to my knowledge, everyone did well.
