Ag Olympics enjoyed by all ages

These kids are not for sale. It’s actually the wood chips they are sitting on that are not for sale, but they look like they are enjoying the view from atop the pile. Pictured from left to right are Bailey Feistner, Henry Feistner, Shiloh Senska, Memphis Moody, Tyann Eddy and Summer Senska.

One of the highlights of the Sanborn County Achievement Days is the Ag Olympics that were added to the lineup of events just a few years ago and have become more popular every year. This year’s Olympic events included bale rolling, leaky bucket water relay, a frozen T-shirt contest (they had frozen T-shirts tied together, and they had to untie the shirts and put them on), a goat chase to remove a tie from his tail and a relay where team members were strapped to boards before needing to race together as a group to one end of the arena and back. 

The Cloverbuds had their own Olympic events, including stickhorse races and chasing a smaller goat around the arena to remove a tie from his tail.

Considering the Sanborn County Achievement Days just took place this past weekend, Aug. 5-7, and they were packed full with events and entries, results were not available at press time of this issue. Please stay tuned to next week’s edition for results and more photos.
