Just drove by the Chemung County Fairgrounds in Horseheads, NY and noticed that some of the Strates Shows equipment has already arrived. I saw a ride racked that looks like the "Dizzy Dragons" ride. Must be they didn't set up everything in Harrisburg.

Your week of glory is coming soon, will you have time to leave the swine barn & pie judging to see the midway in action? We have high expectations, stock up on pixels and digi videos, no analog please. Above all, give us a daily on gate receipts with + or - from last year. Of course, tell us how the press perceives the mdiway change.

Well I must say that Coleman is a cleaner show by far. The fair would have been better off to work with them. MST - im travelling with Bluegrass right now and I must say that this is a real show.

Yes, I will take photos, and will give you links to all the newspaper articles, etc.

I hope our Fair does better this year. Time will tell, I guess.

I hate to see any Fair go under, so I hope this will help turn our Fair around.

We have good shows in our Grandstand this year.

If this doesn't perk our Fair up, then I'm afraid nothing will.

I no longer work for the Fair, so I can't provide you with daily gate receipts. 12 years of service has been enough for me.

This year I'm just going as an average person. (Customer)

I won't judge Coleman, since I haven't seen them this year, but if Strates looked any better than they did when I saw them in Danbury, everything would have to be brand new.

Last I looked, Bluegrass was nowhere near Strates. When did you see Strates recently? Or Coleman? Didn't think so.... you really need to watch what your fingers type before you spew your drivel.....[xx(][xx(]

Yes, it is for sure. Saw the name on the trailer. I'm not too good at knowing the names of kiddie rides, mostly just the adult rides.

Bill-

Where are you set up with Bluegrass right now?
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes you have to take a rain check.
