IV. Stall Allocation:
A. Background
1. Due to limited stall space, it is possible that there will not be space for all qualified exhibitors to attend the Pierce County Fair.
2. If this is the case, one of the following options will be exercised:
a. Drop exhibitors from participation based on the order or precedence list below.
b. Divide the exhibitors into two or more lots based on the order of precedence list below.
3. The stall allotment may be modified by the Board to maximize the use of County Fair stalls and to keep divisions and/or age groups from being split between events to the greatest extend practical.
