The weather couldn't have been more of a contrast this time, as compared to the semi-rain-canceled event in July. Sunshine and temperatures in the 80s ruled the day. Contestants, mostly on motorcycles, participated in the Wiener Bite, Barrel Racing, Wat'er Balloon Jousting, Slow Race, Keg Push and more. Proceeds from this event are going to support the Idaho State Veterans Home in Boise. Visit us on Facebook See more photos at our Adams County Record FaceBook page.

At least that's the thinking of Dave Yost, former owner of the Thrifty Shoppe building and currently the Shoppe's mainte- nance person. So he put a target on the building.

And at the last minute, a carnival com- ing through the area has decided to offer its mul- titude of rides for kids of all ages in the lot across from the bank. So, getting back to the 1,200 lbs. of beef. According to the process that Alvin and Linnea have perfected over the years, you have the local butcher divide the meat into 20-pound roasts, wrap them in aluminum foil inside 10 big pans, start a big fire in a 5 to 6-foot-deep hole in the ground, let the wood burn down to coals, rake the coals out level, cover the coals with several inches of sand, sit the pans of meat on the sand, seal the pans shut with a big iron plate, and pile several inches of sand on top. If you leave the meat there for the right number of hours, while it almost pressure-cooks in its own juices, you wind up with some pretty darned tasty grub. All you need to do after that is make a couple hundred pounds of coleslaw, gather 250 pounds of fresh home- grown tomatoes, cook - about nine big cookers full of beans, and then find about 2,000 people in the town park -- 1,000 to 1,200 of which will pay to eat what you have prepared. You do that for about 47 years and it more or less becomes a tradition - the Meadows Valley Days Barbeque. BY DALE FISK How many people do you know who bury 1,200 pounds of beef in the ground every year for over 40 years? That's exactly what Alvin and Linnea Hall have been doing. It all started about 47 years ago when Bud Dixon, who ran the Pine Knot Car6, got the idea for a big Meadows Valley barbeque. The JCs (Junior Chamber of Commerce) got behind it, then the event was taken over for a time by "The Service Club;' and this spring the event that has become known as "Meadows Valley Days" came under the 501-C-3 umbrella of the Meadows Valley Community Foundation. Held every Labor Day weekend, Meadows Valley Days is a time to celebrate local history, culture and tradition.
