Grady Fairgrounds busy in January

by Marylin Butorac, community correspondant
 Kicking off the new year, the Grady County Fairgrounds hosted the Outlaw kart Superbowl inside the arena building. Also a Blood Drive was held on Saturday with donors receiving a limited edition KATT t Shirt for participating.
 Coming up on January 15-16, the Fairgrounds will host Central 4D Barrel Racing in the Main Arena.  
 Barrel racing is an exciting event in which horse and rider attempt to run a cloverleaf or figure eight pattern around preset barrels in the fastest time.  
 Though both sexes compete at amateur and youth levels, in collegiate and professional ranks, it is usually a women’s event. It requires a combination of the horse’s athletic ability and the horsemanship skills of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver the horse through the prescribed course. Riders enter the arena at top speed and don’t let up until they have finished their ride.
 Come see this thrilling event for yourself right here in Chickasha.
 On January 29th, 2022 the Southwest Oklahoma Vintage Toy Show is scheduled for the Community Building. This event features all your favorite toys from the past including action figures, G.I. Joes, Hot Wheels, diecast, pressed steel, farm collectibles, dolls, baseball cards, Funco Pops, Barbies, Star Wars, video games and more.
 Admission is $3 for adults. Children under 12 are free. The event runs from 9 am to 2 pm.
 Vendor space is available at $10 per table. For more information text 405-779-0965, or 405-556-0691, or email mpf60@aol.com
