Cooke County Indoor Archery Match

Eight Dallas County archers braved the cold on Saturday to compete in the Cooke County Indoor Archery Match in Gainsville, Texas.  Hand warmers were distributed to each competitor as they checked-in and they helped to keep fingers warm between ends.
It may have been cold but the Dallas County team was on fire! Everyone placed in their division and had a very successful (and fun) day.

Two new archers joined the group this year and both were successful at their first 4-H archery match. Harper scooped up the 2nd place spot in her junior division and Victoria placed third in the very competitive Senior Compound division. Congratulations and welcome to the group!

Thanks to Cooke County for hosting this event. We look forward to participating again next year!

Greek Cowboys on Parade

The Greek Cowboys tried to raise awareness and lasso some new club members by marching in the Coppell homecoming parade. Club reporter Mallory Sherrer  said "We hope some people might be interested in joining us for our next meeting after they see us in the parade. We thought this would be a good way to tell people in our community about our club."
Go team!

Urbanites have something to crow about!

 Urbanites had a grand time at the Poultry Show at the State Fair of Texas!

A dozen Urbanite club members entered their prize poultry and eggs in the Poultry Show at the State Fair of Texas. Almost 700 birds and hundreds of eggs were exhibited at this open show. Urbanites came home with loads of ribbons and the bragging rights that accompany them.

Sunday morning the club hosted a bagel brunch for all of the youth poultry exhibitors from around the state. It was an opportunity for youth poultry enthusiasts to celebrate their victories, share stories and do a little last minute prepping and primping for the Poultry Showmanship Competition.

Gecko True Value Hardware graciously sponsored the Poultry Showmanship which is a very competitive knowledge and skill based competition.  This is only the 2nd year that this event has been part of the State Fair Show.

Three veteran Urbanite showmen ranked at the top of the pack. Eamon (2nd place), Christian (4th place) and McKenzie (5th place). Club members Harper, Paola, Hannah, Jefferson and Abi were first time exhibitors and showmanship contestants.

A good time was had by all!
