Derby will go on, sharing space with firefighters

September 9, 2022

Boundary County Public Information

The Bonners Bash Demo Derby, scheduled for Saturday, September 10, is planned to occur as scheduled. At the same time, large portions of the county fairgrounds are being used by the U.S. Forest Service Northern Rockies Incident Management Team (IMT) as their fire camp. Organizers of the demo derby coordinated with the IMT, the Boundary County Fair Board and county officials to ensure attendees to the Derby and IMT fire support activities at the fairground will not interfere with each other.

The Northern Rockies IMT requests that Demo Derby attendees not wander into areas that are currently being provided to the IMT for use as their fire camp. Fire camp areas will be marked with barriers and barricades to clearly mark the controlled areas that are off limits to the public.

Also, firefighters will be sleeping in tents nearby and the IMT has asked that quiet hours be observed starting at 10 p.m. so firefighters can get much-needed rest.

Overflow parking will be available at the northeast corner of the mill.

Thanks to all patrons of the Bonners Bash Demo Derby for observing these arrangements, which will allow for everyone to have a good time while not impacting the important work being done by the IMT to fight the ongoing fires.
