I would like to extend my help to you so we can have a great participation in the fair. We want to continue to spread the word about HOOT. I am here to be of assistance to you. I know that it may be difficult for some of you that don’t live in the area or will be in HOOT Convention mode. If you can get your entry completed on line and would like for me to deliver your items to the fair, I can do this. You will need to have your items labeled with your tags and wrapped in bubble wrap. Bring them to the next HOOT Seminar or meeting, May 16,17 or 18.
If you are planning to attend the HOOT Convention July 15 -19, you can bring your entries to the Monitor’s Station and someone will take your items for safe keeping. I will collect your items and transport them to the Ohio State Fair. I have done shows in the past and I do know a thing or two of how to transport and display works of art.
Remember the Ohio State Fair Celebrating the 80th Year of the Wizard of Oz. “Back To OZ” Using our brains and share all that we know. We are HOOT and have a heart. Be courageous and enter the OHIO STATE FAIR.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me and I will do the best I can to be of assistance.
