Last Friday I went to the State Fair of Virginia to help chaperone an 8th grade field trip. Our group participated in an FFA forestry competition in the morning and then enjoyed the exhibits and rides the rest of the day.
My job for the day was to photograph our students while competing. It wasn’t easy as there were several competitions going on at the same time.
I’m not sure of the official name for the competition below, but the object is to kick and roll a log a certain distance, turn it around using a special tool, and then to kick and roll it back to the start. You can see that it requires teamwork, strength, and coordination.
Overall for the competition we came in 3rd for the state for middle schools.
It was a fun day at the fair. If you live in Virginia, you should go!
