FFA week was last month. Cinnimon Rolls rocked like always. The petting zoo postponement was dissapointing though. It's now going to be in May. People who want to be an officer next year you need to talk to Robinson and get the sheet filled out ASAP. Tonight was FFA bowling at Rec Lanes. State is coming up next month. Hope everyone thats going is prepared:)

~National Convention and update~

I know its a little overdue, but here's an update. We have our dairy and horse judging teams going to state. Several of us went to the 80th anual National FFA Convention in Indianapolis in October. The city was filled with people in blue jackets. Most if not all of the people from Minnesota stayed at the Holiday Inn. There was an FFA mall, a room with a ton of college representatives, and lots of free stuff. There were places to eat at the covention center, but it was so packed with people that when possible we avoided eating there. There were plenty of break out sessions and speakers. The covention center was full whenever there was a speaker. The FFA band and choir were also there. We also went to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Henry Winkler (Fonzie) was on of our speakers. He was my obvious favorite. Conseco fieldhouse was pretty packed top to bottom when he was there. I have pictures from the trip that i will post later. Fruit is now out and be sure to get your checks to Mr. Robinson as soon as possible.

~Competions and Homecoming~

Saturday, September 6th was the River Falls competitions. It was really nice out and River Falls has great facilities. The horse judging team got 4th in the region and 5th overall so we'll be going to state in April. I don't have the results for the dairy and general teams yet, but when I get them I'll post results. Tuesday was the U of M invitational. It was really cold. Today after school we are decorating the parade float for tomorow. We have a cows plows and sows theme. Timmy is bringing the calf and old fashion plow and Daniel is bringing the pig. National convention is at the end of this month- if you've been asked to go ask your parents and get back to Robinson asap. Next wednesday is the corn drive and ditch clean-up. Ditch clean-up starts at 10 a.m. and the corn drive starts whenever we finish that. If you are participating in the corn drive you are asked to also be there for ditch clean-up;)
