This is all day competition was open to all 4-H members, AJRQ members, alumni, and students. We were happy to receive over 100 participants representing Quebec, Ontario and Alberta. The event was a definite success, the competition was fierce but there was loads of fun to be had. A great learning experience and chance to establish new contacts. Well done, and see you next year!
