I just found the announcement on Facebook for this event in central Missouri. Check it out. "*** Polly Burre Memorial Old-Time Fiddlers Contest *** Saturday, June 28, 2014 • 5 p.m. Registration begins at 4 p.m. Tebbetts, Missouri For the first time in 15 years, the Tebbetts Community Picnic is bringing back an old-time Fiddler's Contest. It will be named for the late Kenneth "Polly" Burre (1916-1999), who was a well-known organizer, promoter, and emcee of fiddle contests all over Missouri. Polly was also a musician in his own right. The event is part of the Tebbetts Community Picnic. Tebbetts is located 13 miles east of Jefferson City on Highway 94. (map) Cash prizes will be awarded in three divisions: Senior, Open, and Youth.
