2019-2020 Bonner County Fair King


Nic Peacock is 15 years old and has been a member of the Sagle Yodeling Coyotes and Sagle Saddle Tramps 4-H Clubs for the past seven years. He has taken Market Rabbit for seven years, Pet Rabbit and Breeding Beef for five years. This year is his first year in Market Beef. He has also taken leather craft and archery for seven years.

Nic is currently a Junior Leader for 4-H Archery with Gold N Grouse. Nic is the Idaho State NFAA (National Field Archery Association) State Champion. He will compete in the NFAA Nationals in Redding, CA this spring. In April, he will compete at a pre-qualifying event for the 2024 Para-Olympic Archery Team. Nic is currently a Staff Shooter for Moxie Bows and competes representing Moxie Bows and Spider Stabilizer Bars.

Nic is a freshman at Sandpoint High School and is interested in a career in a trade field. Nic's goal as Fair King is to promote the Bonner County Fair and the events that are held at the fairgrounds. He wants to be a role model for other youth and promote the 4-H program in Bonner County. He enjoys educating others about what the 4-H program has to offer through projects and agriculture. CONGRATULATIONS NIC!

2019-2020 Bonner County Fair Queen


Makayla Chapman is 17 years old and is a senior this year. Makayla's main goal as Fair Queen is to help out her 4-H community as much as possible, as well as set a great example to other 4-H'ers. Makayla is involved in the 4-H Swine Program.

If Makayla could make a new activity for the fair, she would love to create a "SuperFarmer" Contest - in which male and female duos would go head-to-head throwing haybales, moving haybales across the arena, gathering eggs from a nest and finding the hard boiled one by cracking them on the male partner's head, hanging a gate, and completing an obstacle course that involves rolling one partner in a tractor wheel and jumping over a 5-foot haybale! Sounds pretty fun, doesn't it?!

Makayla is an excellent representative of the Bonner County Fair and 4-H Program. CONGRATULATIONS MAKAYLA!

2019-2020 Bonner County Fair Princess


Maddie Gunter is 15 years old and a sophomore at Sandpoint High School. She has been a member of the Bonner County 4-H program for seven years. In her time as a 4-H'er, she has been involved in at least seven different projects. These projects include: Horse, Ranch Horse, Rabbit, Market Swine, Dutch Oven Cooking, and Veterinary Science.

For over 55 years, Maddie's extended family (the Frank Travers family) have been involved in the fair and local 4-H program. Ever since the Bonner County Fair was held at its original home on the shore of Lake Pend Oreille, her family has taken livestock to the fair, and Maddie is honored to continue that family tradition.

When Maddie is not participating in 4-H related events, she enjoys riding her horses, playing volleyball, listening to any kind of music, and spending time with friends. Maddie was part of the student leadership class at Sandpoint Middle School and is now part of the Sandpoint High School Student Council team. CONGRATULATIONS MADDIE!

2019 Miss Bonner County Rodeo Princess


Angel Clark is 22 years old, born here in Sandpoint, and has lived in Priest River all of her life. She grew up on her family's small ranch learning the ins and outs of raising different livestock, and was a member of the Bear Paw 4-H Club from the time she was 8 until she was 18. She raised and sold pigs, raised and showed rabbits, and of course, raised and showed horses, and attended horse camp for several summers.

A 2015 graduate from Priest River Lamanna High, Angel spent some time at North Idaho College before moving on into several different jobs including landscaping, barista, and physical therapy assistant, but her heart has always been with her horses and with that in mind, she is currently working as a stable hand at a boarding stable in Coeur d'Alene, allowing her to work with and exercise the horses boarded there.

Angel's love for horses started very young and only grew stronger. When she was 3, all she wanted for her birthday was a 'corn horse'.... a unicorn. So her mom made her a rainbow colored Arabian Unicorn out of her old grey mare and she was in love. Growing up with horses, she learned a lot before ever riding, and at 13 years old, she trained her first horse....which is the mare her mom rides today. She bought her very own first horse when she was 14 and spent a few years trying to fix the neglected state he had been in before finally having to do the right thing and send him on to warmer pain free pastures. She bought the mare she rides today as a yearling , and has done 100% all of the training on her herself. The bond they have is a strong one, as good friends should have.

Angel has dreamed of being Rodeo Royalty since she was a little girl. She is so proud to represent Bonner County as Princess 2019, and hopes to inspire other little girls into working toward their dreams as well.
