SC Farm Bureau YF&R Conference 2010

With over 180 people registered this was the largest YF & R Conference on record!  Newberry County led the pack with 14 participates.  We began the weekend on Friday with a welcome reception.  The food was great and the opportunity to network was wonderful.  Catching up with old friends and meeting new ones was a great way to begin the conference. 

SCFB President David Winkles addressed the crowd and the opening session and opened the floor for questions.  It was an intereactive session allowing members to air concerns about upcoming legislative activities and media attacks.  President Winkles address each question individually.   It was refreshing to see that even though we are young we were respected enough to recieve answers that were straight-foward.  The evening ended with various groups heading out to enjoy the Charleston night life.  Stay tuned and learn about Saturday's happenings!
