YFC 2009: Countdown to YFC weekend of Blackpool fun

It’s less than a week until thousands of Young Farmers from across England and Wales converge on Blackpool for the biggest event in their calendar, the annual convention and agm.

It promises to be a fun-filled weekend (1-3 May) with members buckling down to some serious business, but also partying hard in the Lancashire resort.

The Farmers Weekly team will be out and about and we have got some special plans for this year’s convention, including a “golden ticket” competition that could win you and your club the chance to have FW feature one of your events in the magazine.

We will be stashing 30 “Golden Tickets” (special FW front covers) around Blackpool and the club that finds the most of them and hands them in to the FW team at 5pm on the Sunday in the Winter Gardens will win the prize (you’re free to trade them between clubs if you want to).

So keep an eye out for them – they will be in fairly prominent places – and make sure you bring your collection to the Winter Gardens.

FW will also be taking a rather special guest to Blackpool this year. We are keeping him (or her…) under wraps at the moment, but make sure you come along to have your photo taken with the guest.
