Competitions day

The 29th May bought the annual Cornwall YFC competitons day, this year being held at Trecarne Farm just outside of Newquay airport. One of the main competitions of the day is stock judging, where you order dairy cows, beef bullocks and lambs in the best order and give reasons. Launceston had several people entering the different classes, so we were bound to do well. We won two cups for stock judging, and well done to Holly Yelland and Sam Thomas who won senior stockman and young stockman respectively. Well done also to the cookery team who go through to represent Cornwall at the next round.
To finish the day, the was a rounders competition and then the tug of war. Launceston have a very strong team for both mens and womens tug of war teams. The teams were very equally matched in both competitions, and the girls done very well to achieve second place. Congratulation to the mens team that won the mens round! Despite losing to the second place team in the heats, they could hold on at the end when it mattered to win over all. Overall Launceston won the day with their strong performances, and a lot of fun was had at the disco in the evening.
