B Day!



















B Day is one of the children's favorite 4 H activities. B Day stands for bicycles, bait casting, and B B shooting. You can choose to participate in one or more of the activities. For the bicycle activity they ride through the cones down and back and are awarded points based on how many cones are left standing and if they stop during the course and put their feet on the ground points are also taken off. For bait casting they do a written test on fish recognition (juniors and senors also do fish anatomy) and have to cast their line into a designated area. They get 3 tries standing up and 3 sitting down. Unfortunately, this year there were only 2 poles and a lot of trees in the area. Both lines got stuck in a tree and that ended bait casting for the day. For the BB shooting activity, they take a test on gun safety and then have 5 chances to hit the target. This year Chelsea only did BB shooting (and she was too quick I didn't even get her picture.) Nick and Alex participated in all three activities but we didn't get their awards because we couldn't stay until the end. Anthony is old enough to participate, he just would rather play at the park in the sand with Lily and Christian instead.
