IMPORTANT CHANGES -- PLEASE NOTE:

In the past, the WRSEF has been a 2-day fair - with judging on one day and awards on the next.   This has become a problem for some of our affiliates, and some participants were unable to get transportation to the 2nd day of the fair.   

To alleviate this, the WRSEF will now be a one-day fair!!!!!

Please note this change:

Friday, March 9th -- the facility will be open to participants wishing to set up their display.   
THERE WILL BE NO JUDGING ON THE EVENING OF MARCH 9TH!!!!!!
