Parry cup, stock judging and poultry classes
Sunday saw the time of year for Parry Cup and Tug of War. Members arrived at Watergate Farm, some a little worse for wear after a very fun and boozy filled Bedford YFC party. We all signed in, put on our white coats and proceeded to the stock. We judged beef, Lambs, Pigs and dairy cows, wrote our reasons and then gave our reasons to the judges.
Meanwhile, the horsey members judged 4 working hunter type horses and they also gave reasons to the judge.
During the judging some members took part in chicken plucking, trussing and jointing as well as rabbit skinning.
Unfortunately we didn't get placed in the Parry Cup but we might have had more luck with the rally classes which we'll get the results for on Rally day itself.
Tug of war
This year, both the men and women's TOW teams joined forces with Bedford YFC - North Beds love joining forces, wouldn't want to miss out on the fun now would we?! We had been training hard and it all paid off, with the women only loosing to Leighton Buzzard and the men only loosing to Woburn, which can only mean we are off to the next round.....yes, we're off to Rally!!! Both clubs should be extremely proud!
Thank you to the Rally committee for organising the day and the Hunt family for letting us use their fabulous facilities, North Beds had a really good day. Let the countdown to rally begin!
