Hello Friends, Well Hurricane Dorian sure did throw a wrench in


our Summer Workshop plans. Even though we, thankfully, didn't have any major impact from the storm a decision had to be made a week prior to our event in order to not incur any monetary penalties. At the time Dorian was forecast to go directly up the center of Florida. After much debate the decision was made to cancel the workshop. Thank you to the Summer Workshop Committee for all of their hard work, we really had a great program lined up for you all.


As we go into the Fall Fair season here in Florida, I want to wish all of


our Fall Fairs the best of luck and hope for a record breaking year for everyone! I will do my best to visit as many as I can.


Looking back over this past summer the Florida Federation of Fairs has


been able to attend some great events. In June we were once again invited to the State FFA Convention in Orlando and what an awesome event it was. If we get the chance to attend again next year I strongly encourage everyone to go.


In August we made the trip north to visit the Wisconsin State Fair. We


had 34 folks from Florida make the trip and what a great trip it was! The staff at the Wisconsin State Fair was extremely welcoming and accom- modating to all of us, from hosting us at their sponsor dinner to giving us behind the scenes access to those that wanted to see specific depart- ments or operations. I think everyone left there with new ideas on how to improve their Fairs. We also had the chance to watch a baseball game and take a tour of the Miller Brewery, overall the trip was a huge success! I want to thank Dawn Rowe for organizing everything and keeping the group on track.


I hope to see you all in San Antonio for the IAFE Convention, December 1 - 4. Bl il FALL 2019
