County rally

Today we headed down to Lostwithiel for this year’s county rally, thank you to everyone who came down and entered any static entry they all looked great and it was great to be able to enter nearly the whole schedule. Even with the rally sports practice earlier in the month, we still didn’t seem to have the knack of the sports, not doing overly well. Although we didn’t win the rally shield again we came an amazing 2nd place. The last competition of the day was the tug of war, a massive congratulation to the girl’s team who came out on top.

Launceston show

It wasn't long and Launceston Show had come around again. With a good number of entries throughout all the classes the tent was looking really good. The YFC tent once again proved to be a busy one, with refreshments on offer, as well as a name the sheep competition where proceeds when to charity. The Launceston YFC choir sang in the members tent to mark the end of the show, and we all went to the white horse for tea.

Tonight we decided that we wouldn’t meet for a club night, but let the Launceston show cubicle teams meet to try and finish their cubicles.

Dry stone walling

Barry and Gareth Jones split us into 2 groups to take on a side of the wall each. The teams with varying levels of experience were looking carefully to ensure they didn’t have 3 joining edges and for the perfect shaped stone. A delicious supper was put on for members afterwards.

Visit to Lamerton Hunt Kennels

Tonight we joined with Callington, Tavistock and Lewdown Young Farmers for a talk and tour at the Lamerton Hunt Kennels. On arrival we were given a brief talk about the kennels before being taken around the premises. We were then given a talk about the dogs at the kennel whilst they were let out to run around. The evening was rounded off with a competition to select the top 3 dogs and bitches. The winners received prizes donated by Mole Valley, before we were treated to a pasty or two for some members.

Summer Do at North Helescott

After being given kind permission from Jon Frayne to use his barn for our Summer Do 2016, the time had soon come around for the preparations to begin. With the barn walls sheeted and sand on the floor it was just the final touches to make on the day. The party was a great success with DJ Pasty keeping the party going long into the night. Thanks must go to Jon Frayne for allowing us to use his barn and to anyone else who helped behind the bar, bbq or during all the preparations and clean up.
