Where in the World is the SC Team? Week II

Share this:

Hello from Grand Island, NE!

And so another whirlwind week begins. We are with the red, white and roans here at the Shorthorn Junior Nationals.

This is SC’s first time at the show and we can’t wait to interact with these young people. Today during check-in we saw some really neat craft projects, plus we’re excited for the other contests, shows and group activities happening this week! The facilities are awesome with an air-conditioned showring, and although it is pretty hot outside things are too bad in the barn. You will find that cell reception and Internet connections are a little slow in this town.

We started taking photos last night at Barnyard Olympics, and will post other candids and showring on our Facebook page all week, so be sure to like our page and tag yourself and friends.

Our stomachs led us to Napoli’s Italian Restaurant last night and boy was it good

Lobster Ravioli - delicious!

Other suggestions that have been given to us are Ed’s Steakhouse, they were a 2009 NCBA Beefbacker Award Winner, and the Chicken Coop Sports Bar and Grill and Sin City Grill for burgers.

Until next time,
The Interns

P.S. – on July 1st we will be starting a new contest on Instagram. Join in on the fun by taking a photo each day and tagging it with #surechamp and #SCphotoaday to enter.
