[Oeva-list] FW: SolWest is the last weekend of June!

I see that it says June below but if you look a at their website, the first
thing it says is:

SolWest Fair is July 26th, 27th & 28th, 2013 at the Grant County
Fairgrounds, John Day, OR

Since it has been in July in the past I assume this was an error.

Regards,
Pat
