Brecknock YFC Field Day
Brecknock YFC members gathered at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells on Saturday 31st October 2009 for the Annual Field Day. Members participated in 9 different competitions; ATV Safety & Handling Competition, Junior Nature Challenge, Decorating A Christmas Tree, Junior Farm Safety, Club Promotion, Fence Erecting, Public Speaking 16 years or under, County Exhibit and Welsh Public Speaking 26 years or under. The day was kicked off with the ATV & Safety Handling and Junior Nature Challenge Competition. Eighteen teams participated in the Junior Nature Challenge; members were asked to follow a trail, obeying the Country code and answer questions on route. A new Competition was introduced to the Field Day this year; The County Exhibit which proved popular. Clubs were asked to produce an exhibit to the theme “My Home County”. Each exhibit had to include a floral arrangement, a county flag or emblem (needlework), a local dessert, four mounted photographs and a decorated cake. Mid morning the Christmas Tree Decorating Competition took place in the Wales YFC Workshop. All teams had worked hard to catch the judge’s eye with their decorated trees. Teams participated in the Fence Erecting competition, which was kindly sponsored by DG Jones Agri Ltd and Mr Gareth Jones. The day came to a close with the Welsh Public Speaking and Speaking 16 years and under. Final proceedings of the day were the awards ceremony where the overall Elizabeth John Field Cup was presented to Troedrhidalar YFC for gaining first place with 296 points, Second place with 278 was Erwood YFC, Llandefalle YFC and Sennybridge YFC.
