Yes they already had 2 spots booked, and a circus jump the following week according to them. So they did what they could to help. As for the statement about cancelling, I was not contracted to play the fair this year. I received a call in April to see about a contract, but our schedule was aready full. Because of the Western Ilinois Fairs dates for 2008, the only way we could have played it this year would have been to change the dates to an earlier date. This was done several years ago and it created a hardship on the fair and on the independent food operators. I consider the fairboard at this fair to be a great bunch to work with, and wish them the best in the future. The fair had other obstacles such as rain, and bridges closed that hindered access to the area.
