It might not be as big as the Washington or Jacktown Fair but bigger is not always the best. If one is looking for a relaxed atmosphere in a country setting keep in mind the small celebration to be held Sept. 9 at Ryerson Park.
You can purchase real maple syrup or just watch it being made. You can have your deer officially scored by a Boone and Crockett official scorer. John and I will do the measuring. While there is a new measurer in Washington County, Matt Weinzen of Coal Center, I am still emeritus and my signature still counts. Plus, I really enjoy this outdoor celebration. We have been attending this event yearly and it has become a favorite tradition of ours.
Invariably, John and Ranger Alan Johnson are both drawn to the archery range and shoot against each other using recurve bows. I hate to admit it, but both of them are good. Even without the lake, Ryerson is a pretty park in a very remote area. The good Lord willing, I will see you there Sept. 9.
