Young Farmer Contest #1

And so the journey begins.

As many Young Farmers around the country are partaking in awesome road trips to gather in Dunedin, I am sitting in Palmerston North Airport ready to wing my way there.

I remember going to national conference in about 1998 on the train from Palmerston North. It was such a fantastic trip – favourite moments: sending Pat running to the Liquorland in Timaru from the train station because we ran out of Tui (or did someone deliver it…. it had been a long trip) and playing all sorts of drinking games on the journey.  We picked up all manner of Young Farmers on the way.

Then there was the Mt Cook conference where the Ballance Club boys travelled on their .. there’s a name for it…. little motorbike scooter thingies.. mud bugs, something like that.

Anyway…. here I am on the way to the 42nd (I think) Grand Final of the National Bank Young Farmer Contest.

I will send you more details as we go – links to websites where you can find out who they are and what they’re up to, as well as photos from their endeavours.

It’s gonna be a long week 🙂
