Bob Snider: Fairgrounds Manager

Bob has been the Head Groundskeeper since October 2002.
Bob has worked hard over the years to upgrade the facility. He was instrumental in getting several grants for the campgrounds and he also wrote and received an Energy Efficiency Grant for our facility. Bob finished a two-year program in the Institute of Fair Management in December and graduated. He continues to be an asset to both the fairgrounds and the community. You may see Bob riding his bike or on the lake boating or fishing. Bob and his wife Mary enjoy time with their children, grandchildren, family and traveling.
Bob received a new title in 2016 as Fairgrounds Foreman, he is working on the rodeo area and grounds. In 2017, Bob was promoted to Fairgrounds Manager and continues to make great improvements on the fairgrounds.
Shelli Cowell: Fair Office Manager

Shelli Cowell: Fair Office Manager

Shelli started at the Bonner County Fairgrounds in May 2018, and comes from a background in Event Coordination, Executive Administrative Assistance and Office Management. Shelli grew up in northern Minnesota, where she spent summers at the cabin enjoying the lake, fishing, biking, riding quads, and spending time with family. After spending 11 years in Washington State, she married a Bonners Ferry fellow and moved to beautiful Sandpoint, where they are enjoying life in the community. When she's not at the fairgrounds, you'll find Shelli and her husband Matt camping, spending time with family, and playing with their two-year old English Springer Spaniel, Kip.

She looks forward to busy summers at the fairgrounds, and making the fair a place where memories are made!
