County Fair needs improvement

Dear Editor;
We enter for the joy of competition, the sense of recognition and the satisfaction of some achievement. It is a joy to see the standings showing first, second, third names and points printed on the sectional division cards.

2008 fees raised. Many of us (low income) found it difficult. Conveners methodical and without enthusiasm. Entries barely displayed (Could spread a tablecloth). No printed display of names or points. Prize money arrived very late. No delineation. Is the County Fair about numbers or personal worth?
