On Saturday 30 th July over 400 members from across Cornwall competed at Cornwall Young Farmers’ Clubs annual county Rally.
The Rally, held at Netherton Farm, Lostwithiel by kind permission of the Hutchings family, is the highlight of the YFC year with competitions held in cookery, art, handicraft, photography, floral art, practical and sports.
The day saw over 600 entries in the static sections alone – incorporating everything from a Victoria Sponge to a decorated coat hanger to a homemade bird box! A fun practical section saw members recycle pallets in to garden furniture, demonstrate their skills at sheaf pitching and race a homemade pram around a set course before taking part in the much anticipated sports competitions such as the greasy pole, six man sack race and men’s, ladies and junior tug of war.
Liskeard YFC were overall winners, taking away many other cups in various sections along the way.
Runners up were Launceston YFC and the trophy awarded to the club with most points per member was awarded to Pelynt YFC.
