The Destruction Derby and Tough Trucks competition drew perhaps the largest audience of the weekend at the fairgrounds in an event that featured many local drivers.

Local driver Nathan Campbell, of Crescent City, was able to keep the tough trucks title in the county by finishing first overall in thecompetition. Although Campbell competes in similar tough trucks events all over Northern California and Southern Oregon, he got his start at home in the Del Norte County Fair over a decade ago.

“We got the old Bronco and just started beating on it and fixing it up as we went,” Campbell said. “When we find any weak spots we try to fix them with old junkyard parts for the most part. It is just something fun to do.”

This year, for the first time, fair attendees were able to watch some of the most athletic dogs in the region soaring through the air at the X-Treme AirDogs tent as part of the Northwest Challenge Outdoor Series.

Dogs and their handlers competed in three main events including x-treme retrieve, x-treme vertical and x-treme long jump. While the event is technically a competition, almost all of the owners are friends, both on and off the dock.

The main goal is just to entertain the crowds.

“That’s what we do,” said Cera Reusser, who competed with her dogs Olie and Olie’s mother, Elsie May. “We love our dogs so much; we want to be able to share what they can do. The smiles on the kids’ faces are really fun to see.” 

The highlight of the weekend for Reusser was Olie’s performance in the x-treme pro long jump. Olie finished first overall with a jump of 27 feet on Sunday after finishing as the top qualifier by jumping 28 feet on Saturday.

Junie strained to break free from Josh Calloway’s grasp, her eyes locked on the water before her.

Carolyn Westbrook threw the tennis ball, Calloway let go and the chocolate lab sprinted to the edge of the platform and took a flying leap.

“She’s doing it for treats,” joked Westbrook, a Smith River resident. “She goes for sticks and balls in our pond. We thought maybe she’d like to try it.”

“It” is K9 Dock Diving with X-Treme AirDogs, a family-owned competition-entertainment organization from Junction City, Ore., which brought seasoned dock-
diving dogs to the Del Norte County Fair for the first round of a multi-city championship series.
