Summer activities which Glarryford YFC participated in.
Glarryford YFC have had an extremely busy summer with many events on the cards. First up was our Annual Sports Night on the 17th June which saw many past and present members of the YFCU attend. Teams from across the county belted it out on the football pitch and tug-o-war rope. We would like to thank everyone for coming along to support the club.
Jessica Reid and Jayne Cruickshank also attended the Stock judging Finals day on the 7th July 2016 where Jessica Reid was placed 3rd in the Beef Stock Judging. Cast members of the Three Act Play 'Anyone Could Rob A Bank' loaded to the seaside performing for four nights to almost sold out audience in the Summer Theatre.
Next up was the Tag Rugby Competition at Ballymoney Rugby Club on the 27th July 2016 which saw Glarryford enter both a senior and junior team and although not successful in getting to the next stage, everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking part.
Heading into August, the club had many events planned. Both John Gregg and Jessica Reid hosted Scottish, Norwegian and Latvian members from the European Rally to show them tourist attractions of Northern Ireland.
The following weekend (5th August 2016) the club welcomed 24 Scottish Young Farmers from Brechin YFC for a weekend of touring NI. Both clubs had a fantastic weekend and Glarryford cannot wait to return to Brechin in November.
Members were then busy preparing for their annual BBQ which was held on the 20th August 2016. The club would like to thank everyone who helped make the evening such a success and also those who came along to support the club.
Lastly, the Summer Club Meeting was held on 23rd August 2016 and this saw many new and old faces turn up for a night of slippery rounders and pizza- change of clothes was necessary!
With summer almost over, Glarryford YFC would like to remind everyone that the winter program is just about to begin- the madness still doesn't fade. Our first club meeting is a games night on the 12th September 2016 at 7:30pm. We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month in Glarryford Farmers Hall.
