Not to long ago the SE Fair was in financial straights, now they are going to Vegas.

From an SE Fair entertainment announcement email;

Coming to the 2012 Grandstand

Tracy Lawrence
Friday, August 10

‘Tracy was sincerely disappointed that he couldn’t perform last year due to weather”, says Scott Wick, Fair Manager, “He made a point to personally meet with us at our convention in Las Vegas last fall to work out his return as to not disappoint his South Dakota fans.”

Maybe I am wrong about this, and hopefully music guru Hudson can chime in, but does the SE Fair really have to attend conventions to bring in musical acts? We have things called telephones and email to work out contracts now.

I’m assuming it was a convention for fairs in general, and there was probably booths and speakers dealing with booking music acts. Sounds exciting, I know. You’re right, though…it’s probably unnecessary but also not unusual.

“I will split the difference and make it a quarter.” LOL. I used to watch reruns of Green Acres and Star Trek as a kid. That shit never gets old.
