What’s going on during the trial?

Along with the three days of exciting trialling there will be trade stands, a craft tent, children's corner which includes a couple of traditional old fashioned children's fairground rides, these will be free of charge throughout the three days, and the local Young Farmers Club will also have a stand, to include fun and games, with all proceeds raised being donated to their chosen charity of the year. 

Grass Quoits tournament

On Sunday 29th July, day three of the trial, we will be holding a Grass Quoits Tournament. Quoits is a very old game played extensively among the farming community. In years gone by Quoits was mostly played on grass, today many games are played using clay pits. Villages still have quoits teams and play every week in a local league. We thought it might be a nice add on attraction for our visitors. There will be a 'Have a go' pitch alongside the tournament, with people to help and advise, where both young and old can try their hand.
The prize money has £150 added, anyone wanting to play please send a message or contact Lynn or John Bainbridge (Zetland league).
