On a very beautiful day, the 29th combine demolition derby was officially opened in grand style. Thanks to Joleanne Spelts, the Washington Army National Guard Rodeo Queen displayed our nation's colors on her beautiful horse and many trips around the arena.
We always welcome Adam Lamberd and Chuck Hall as the derby announcers. Both guys have been an integral part of our successful derby for many years. This year, Scotty Steele was the 'fill-in announcer for Chuck who could not attend. Both Adam and Scotty did a great job announcing cars, pickups and combines. Thanks, guys, for a job well done! This year's 14 combines were represented by Seattle, Davenport, Odessa, Hooper, Ritzville, Lind, Spokane, Othello and Harrington.
