"What is your favorite clothes when you go shopping?" was answered mostly with "shoes" or "boots", and gave shrugs, a couple of "yes", but mostly "no" when asked if they would marry someone with a beard (girls), or if they would grow a beard like Coach had.

The "beard" worn by Coach may have been more than the kids could visualize, but they did great anyway.
The entertainment consisted of Taron Luetjen singing, Glenda Gilbert and Chad Harms singing, and the Company B from Versailles doing several dance and acrobatic pieces. Great job by all.
After a short wait, the finalists were announced - three boys and three girls, one couple to become the Future King and Queen of the Cole Camp Fair.
