Fun, Learning, and Achievement

31 July 2014

A new competition allowing mixed teams and weights has been added to the Tug of War finals and is open to all NFYFC members – even those who are not competing in the national finals at the Tenbury Show.

The 4x4 catch weight competition is being trialled at this year’s Tug of War competition after the national finals of the men’s, ladies’ and Juniors’ competitions and NFYFC is inviting all members to get a team together to take part.

The team must be made up of four men and four females, with no more than two members aged between 15 and 17 years old, and the remainder of the team aged between 17 and 26 years old. There are no restrictions on weight and size of the members of the team either.

The competition is £8 to enter and while this is not an official NFYFC competition with a trophy – the winning team will win all of the entry fee money. Anyone competing will also need to pay an entrance fee to the Tenbury Show.

Competitions Chairman David Hamer said it’s a competition members have requested. “Members have been telling us that they want this style of competition so we thought we would trial it this year and open it up to all clubs across the country.

“It’s a great day out at the Tenbury Show so why not get a Tug of War team together and join us to cheer on the national finalists, and then have a go yourself in this fun competition. You could end up going home with the prize money!”

To take part in the competition, age restrictions must be adhered to and all participants must be current YFC members with a valid 2013/14 membership card.

Teams wishing to take part must enter between 9-11am on 2 August 2014 and pay an £8 entry fee.

The format of this competition shall take place in accordance to the format of the Tug of War Association Competition Rules 2011 (incorporating TWIF Rules).
