- The Panhandle South Plains Fair Association reserves the right to pay printed premiums in ratio to net earnings. The Association hopes to pay all premiums in full this year; however, as premiums and all other expenses must be paid from gate and other receipts made from the operation of the Fair itself, this condition is made to put exhibitors on due and legal notice.
