Covid-19 has turned the world upside down including NeFigure8n. The 2020 schedule was set to have 11 races this year until Covid-19 happened. Many county fairs are opting to cancel their grandstand events including figure 8 events and focus on their 2021 event. However two fairs are submitting their plans to continue with their fairs leaving us with the possibility of two races in 2020. Those being the Saunders County Fair in Wahoo and the York County Fair in York. Hope to see everyone support these fairs this year!
Becker Announces Final Figure 8
If you have attended the York County Fair Figure 8 or Derby in the last 30 years you know who Doug Becker is. Doug has been announcing the events at the fair for the last 30 plus years. 2019 is set to be his last. During the intermission of the 2019 Figure 8, York County Fairboard member Matt Rathjen presented Becker with a plaque for his time announcing at the fair. Becker also announced at the Saline County Fair and Fillmore County Fair events. Thanks for all of your years announcing our race Doug!
