We are planning our event again for October 7th, 8th and 9th, 2005, and would love to have more crafts involved this year. Hovercraft were a big hit! http://www.foxcreekoutdoors.com
Hi, just a reminder that I am still in need of at least 4 more crafts (more the better!! ) to make this big event a success! We need more crafts if we are to give everybody that wants a ride a chance to ride!! The event is free for those who wish to particapate. e-mail for an information sheet. Thank You, David Beachy #4909 email@example.com
Due to an unfortunate error, conflicting events were scheduled at the Southern Illinois Fairgrounds on the Weekend of April 23. The resultant mix of show horses and racing hovercraft in the same immediate area were deemed an incompatable mix. As this was their mistake, fairground personnel have been cooperative in attempting to resolve this problem. Unfortunately rescheduling to Fall 2005 presently appears to be our only viable option.
