Hollis Shumaker at Tebbetts, MO, Fiddle Contest c. 1983
Got this message from Howard Marshall:

Hi folks, in case you haven't heard -- There is a fiddlers' contest in Higbee Saturday evening. Higbee is a half hour north of Columbia and a few miles west of US63.  The contest is at the Higbee school, 101 Evans St., at 6.30 (register at 5.30).  Three divisions of competition: youth (15 and below), open (any age), senior (55 and up).  Five places paid to winners (first prize, $100).  Two accompanists allowed on stage.  Spaghetti dinner at 5.30. Contact: Mary Blacketer, email lmr_pullers_03@yahoo.com.  They had contests at the Higbee school years ago, and they are trying to revive them -- so please do come!

As always, please contact the organizer of the event if you have any questions and to verify any of the info above.  -- CW
