JUNE 4-6, 2004

Caution: Web-page editor rambling editorial!   What a great Virginia Bar-B-Que we had.  The weather is not always kind here in Central Illinois, but we had a lucky rabbit's foot this year. The Hager Twins made an ordinary Saturday night become something special with their comedy and musical talent. Here's a shot of that show:

You'll note that they brought up audience members for help.  That's Don Clark on the right and Sandy Wilson on the left lending a hand to the festivities.

Opening the show and doing back-up was the Country Squires from Springfield, Illinois:

Here's a side view of the stage.  L to R The Hager Twins, Andy Acree, Dennis Farmer, and Doc Hollada.

The Hagers did some great comedy.  Note the white 'Samoan' war diaper worn by Jon.

  The queen contest was not only fun, but well attended.  Here's a picture of the contest:

With the help of Mr. Bill Garver, the contest for the Little Miss just couldn't miss.

We had rides!!

Note the satisfied rider on the Octopus.
