Buyers Baskets at TCYS Auction

Friendly reminder about the Buyers Baskets at the TCYS Auction. If you make the auction with a youth fair project or animal, it is customary to put together a basket or something for your buyers at the Auction. This could be anything, i.e, chips and salsa, cheeses, sausages, cookies, cakes, coffee packs. Just a little something to show your appreciation to your buyers. Please remember that these items must be alcohol free!! If you are new to 4-H, make the auction for the first time and have questions about this, please ask any veteran members or leaders or Cory.

TCYS Barrow Weight Tolerance

A slight adjustment has been made to the barrow weight tolerance for the Travis County Youth Show. The original weight limit is set at 125 to 270 pounds. Due to the time frame of the show, a 15 pound top and bottom tolerance is being allowed for this show only.

Share Your Story

4-H members are being asked to share what the county show means to you or how the show has influenced you. This is a great opportunity for anyone and especially those who may serve in the role of reporter for your club.

All stories need to be sent to Carl Dahlstrom at
Carl's plan is to submit these stories in hopes of them being printed in the Country Line Magazine. Please note that all stories may not be used. He needs these by December 12th.

Good Luck!!
