Packed schedule for Stewartry young farmers
Stewartry Young Farmers have had a busy few months.
The car treasure hunt was held on July 16, starting and finishing at the Laurie Arms in Haugh of Urr.
There was a great turnout from the public and young farmers from clubs across the region and the club is very grateful to Gibby and Doreen McCoskry who very kindly put together the most challenging route.
On Friday, July 21, Stewartry entered a team into the west area beach volleyball tournament.
Unfortunately, the team wasn’t placed but it was a great evening, with a dance after the event.
The club entered a float in the Castle Douglas Civic Day parade on Saturday, July 29. Members dressed up as farm animal sand decorated a tractor (thanks to Adam Burgoyne) and a cattle feed trailer (thanks to James Gordons) as the float.
Team Stewartry was pleased to come third in the ‘other vehicle’ category.
Stewartry Show was next on the agenda.The club tent was full of fun activities for all ages which included nail in the bale, tombola and a chocolate cake competition.The after-show dance was well attended by the general public and other clubs from across the region.
Dumfries show was a success for the handicrafts team with John Heuchan coming first for a decorated watering can, Katie Maxwell first with her further article, Rachel Young third in the photography competition and Katie Sproat first with the club notice board.
The club’s last event for August was Farmyard Frolics held at Robesland by kind permission of the Burgoyne Family.
The event was a fun-filled day for everyone who competed in the various competitions which included an obstacle course, wheelbarrow races and space hopper football.The weather even managed to stay dry.
The next event is a coffee morning at St Ninian’s Hall, Castle Douglas this Saturday, with doors opening at 10am.
