Fun from the Fantastic Bigfoot Jamboree 2013

Queen Alyssa Algiers was escorted by Travis Ward.

A kind heated Bigfoot or Sasquatch had been captured, but as usual, frequently escaped his cage along the parade route. He was accompanied by beautiful Belle of Beauty and the Beast AKA Bailei Allec. Two trucks were pulling Pirate Boats were from Klamath River Resort Inn & Rafting Lodge with smiling pirates.

Pirates of the Klamath River Resort Inn & Adventure Lodge have been out Adventuring!

The Bigfoot ‘Queen Alyssa was crowned as the queen Friday before the dance by last year’s queen Bailei Allec. Alyssa reigned and rode with two of her princesses, Abigail Eadie and Julia Peters. Frankie Snyder and Ciera Silva also rode in the parade. The Bigfoot ‘Queen Alyssa was crowned as the queen Friday before the dance by last year’s queen Bailei Allec.

For the first time there was a $500 prize for Nonprofits Float. It was a tie between Family Resource Center with a tea party from Alice in Wonderland and the Many princesses who are Girl Scouts. So they each get $250 cash. HC Elementary float was 2nd with a 101 Dalmatian float and Junction School from Somes Bar won 3rd with another 101 Dalmatian float!! :Lots of kids dressed as spotted doggies!

For the first time, there was a category for horses, equestrian, but there were none in the parade So they decided Happy

camp should get into the 20th century, maybe even 21st, and they gave it to “horsepower” category instead, First was Tow-Nader, Doug Robinson, our local towing guy, 2nd was the VW Club from Grants Pass, wearing tie die shirts and driving modified VWs. The third was Kenny McCulley truck with his grandsons Ian and Emmit..

Business Floats first place winner was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by Double J, Second place Pixie Haven by Marble Mountain Gift and third place was Peter Pan by Parry’s Market. For the Individual category, Wild Bill won 2 & 3rd ribbons and Kala Whitehouse twirled 2 batons, won first prize trophy again. There was no grand prize overall.

There were Fire trucks from Happy Camp and Seiad Valley, Ambulance and Forest Service trucks, one with Smokey!! At the end were a bunch of shiny antique cars that just came along and didn’t sign up, but added to the Parade. Becky Tiraterra organized the CERT and Neighborhood Watch volunteers to do traffic control. .

47th Annual Bigfoot Jamboree 2013

Grand Marshal’s, Ms.Dorie (Mary Poppins) and Greg (Bert) McDonald
Photo shared with permission of Crystal Jones. Thank you Crystal!

First of all in Sunday’s parade, Greg and Dorie McDonald were Bert and Mary Poppins with Merry Go Round horses on the back of the vehicle for the Grand Marshal’s. Greg is frequently seen doing custodial work at the High School and around town. However, his first love and the talent for which he has a gift is photography. Greg can catch a bee on a flower, or a robin bathing, or an eagle in flight. He also has turkeys and deer that he has hunted, and brought back alive in living color with his camera as well as the kind that goes in the freezer.. It is really great to see his photos. His wife, Ms Dorie as she is known by the students that she has taught in the high school teaches from a sense of calling and has a passion for the students. Our Ms Dorie as Mary Poppins is a fitting answer for the ad that Jane and Michael Banks draft in the story, asking for a fun, kind-heated and caring person for a nanny, and believes in a spoon full of sugar! While she is fun and caring, and has been known to feed them treats on special occasions she is committed to their learning and being prepared for going on to college or whatever career path they take.. I know that she would appreciate your thoughts and prayers this week as she resumes chemotherapy.
