The Board of Directors would like to let the Nicollet County Fairgoers know that our grandstand bleachers were inspected by a structural engineer, a few minor fixes were made, were re-inspected by engineer and forms were signed and submitted to the State of Minnesota to be bleacher compliant with the State's guidelines.  To maintain compliance, we will watch our bleachers closely each year and conduct another compliance review with an engineer in five years, according to State guidelines.  Our compliance certificates are posted in the Fair Board office, if you would like to see them or have questions.  Safety first!
