SCCC holds Grand Drive Show Lamb Camp


On June 15, the Seward County Community College Block and Bridle hosted their three-day Grand Drive Show Lamb Camp for the eleventh year in a row. Thirty-one campers came from four different states.

Brittany Beattie worked as a student instructor and has done so for two years at this camp. Britni Reust attended for the first time. "I was amazed at how much better I am showing after just three days" said Reust.

Ashton Harrison also attended camp. He was excited about how he improved and would be ready to win some showmanship contests in the upcoming show season.

The camp had several instructors from several different states. Chris McGolden, Arapaho, Okla., was the head instructor. Allison McGolden also helped along with several other former campers. They include; Lacey Shapland, Sublette, Kan., Lyndi Jury Sublette, Kan., Melissa King, Hooker, Okla., Haley Sprague, Darrouzett, Texas, Colten Hardy, Parker, Colo., Jeff Siegfried, Holly, Colo., and Brittany Beattie, Texhoma, Okla. The instructors worked with the students on feeding, washing, clipping, management, lamb selection, and showmanship.

While at camp, the students enjoyed a pizza party and swimming. They stayed in the SCCC dorm rooms and got a small taste of college life.

The campers were divided into three groups at the beginning of camp. On the last day they each participated in a competition to show off the new techniques they learned. Ashton Harrison from Texhoma, Okla., won the Most Improved Award, in the Group I. Britni Reust from Texhoma, Okla., received the Most Determined Award, in the Group III.
