General Information and Rules

Cooperation: The Larimer County Fair & Rodeo is held in cooperation with the Larimer County Board of Commissioners, The Ranch, the Larimer County Fair Board, the PRCA Rodeo Committee and the Larimer County Office of Colorado State University Extension. The Larimer County Fair & Rodeo does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, disability, sexual preference, veteran or marital status, or national origin in its policies or activities.

Fairground Location: The Larimer County Fair is held at The Ranch located just east of Interstate Highway 25, between exit numbers 259 (Crossroads Blvd.) and 262 (Windsor Highway 392). Access to grounds is off of Fairgrounds Avenue (County Road 5). The mailing address of the Fair Office is 5280 Arena Circle, Suite 101, Loveland, Colorado 80538. Phone 970-619-4009; Fax 970-6194085. (Fair Extension Office Phone is 970-619-4080, July 11 August 10)

Responsibility: The Ranch, Larimer County Fair Board, and Extension staff will use reasonable diligence to insure safety of exhibits after their arrival and placement but in no case will they be responsible for any loss or damage done to, occasioned by, or arising from any animals or articles on exhibition. The exhibitors shall indemnify The Ranch, Larimer County Fair Board and Extension staff and volunteers of all legal or other proceedings in regard thereto. The entry of any exhibits on the show grounds by any and all exhibitors shall signify his or her agreement to abide by this rule.

Alcohol Restrictions: Pursuant to Colorado Statute 12-47901(1)(h)(I), it is illegal to bring any outside alcoholic beverages onto the Larimer County Fairgrounds and Events Complex, including parking lots. Alcoholic beverages not purchased on the premises will be confiscated immediately and may result in fines and/or ejection from the premises. Out of respect for the goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program and the Colorado 4-H Code of Conduct, alcoholic beverages are discouraged in the 4-H camping areas, Thomas M. McKee 4-H Youth and Community Building, and areas where 4-H animals are housed.

Marijuana: The use of marijuana in any display, food item, or exhibit is prohibited and shall be rejected. The exhibitor shall be referred to law enforcement.

Feeding: Feeding hours are scheduled to be 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. each day of Fair.

Leash Law: Larimer County and the City of Loveland require all dogs to be on a leash at all times on public property. For the safety of animals and people, The Ranch discourages bringing dogs to the Larimer County Fair & Rodeo.

Code of Conduct: The Larimer County Fair and Rodeo is a family event environment. Patron behavior is expected to be consistent with this family atmosphere. Any violations of rules at The Ranch, local ordinances, or State Statutes may result in eviction from the facility and/or the filing of criminal charges. All 4-H members, parents and leaders must abide by the Colorado 4-H Code of Conduct.

Youth Code of Conduct Purpose of 4-H

Larimer County 4-H is the informal youth education program of Extension through Colorado State University. Through 4-H projects and programs, youth learn life skills, citizenship, communication and decision making techniques, leadership, interpersonal relations, community and global awareness. 4-H helps youth form attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.

Member Responsibilities Larimer County 4-H Members Should:

? Conduct themselves in a courteous, respectful manner, use appropriate language, exhibit honesty, good sportsmanship and act as a positive role model.

? Learn and live by the principles of the 4-H Pledge, 4-H Motto and 4-H Slogan.

? Abstain from the use of illegal drugs, alcoholic substances or tobacco products, electronic smoking devices or any inhalant delivery system. These are NOT allowed at any 4-H sponsored program, event, and/or activity. This applies to local club meetings, county, district, state and national events.

? Respect the rights and authority of leaders, parents and Extension Agents.

? Respect the rights, property, and privacy of 4-H members. ? Adhere to individual program rules, policies and

guidelines. ? Fully participate in scheduled activities. ? Refrain from physical or verbal abuse. ? Apply rules of safety to individuals, groups, and property. ? Accept personal responsibility for behavior. Conduct not in keeping with high 4-H standards will not be tolerated. Violation of items listed above will result in consequences to the participant. Consequences may include removal, at the individual's expense and without refund, from participation in an event, restitution or repayment of damages; sanctions on participation in future 4-H events; forfeiture of financial support for an event; removal from offices held, etc.

Colorado State University Extension, Larimer County, believes in the right of every child to a safe and nurturing environment.

Adult/Parent/Guardian 4-H Code of Conduct Purpose of 4-H

Larimer County 4-H is the informal youth education program of Extension through Colorado State University. Through 4-H projects and programs, youth learn life skills, citizenship, communication and decision making techniques, leadership, interpersonal relations, community and global awareness. 4-H helps youth form attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.

Youth learn from their experience. Part of the experience is observing and modeling their behavior after adults they know and respect. To contribute in a positive way to youth development Larimer County 4H Leaders, Volunteers, Parents and other adults will:

? Conduct themselves in a courteous, respectful manner, use appropriate language, exhibit honesty, good sportsmanship and act as a positive role model.

? Provide a safe environment, free of physical abuse, mental abuse, verbal abuse, ethnic, racial and sexual harassment or exploitation of the 4-H members and anyone affiliated with the 4-H program.
