Sunrise A Team has shot at provincial 4-H woodsmen title

PUGWASH - Members of the Sunrise A team now have a shot at the provincial title after placing first at the Cumberland County 4-H woodsman competition.

The competition, which took place Saturday outside the Pugwash District High School, saw seven different clubs from Cumberland County compete in five different events.

Those events included the single pulp saw, double pulp saw, cross-cut, back-tank race and water boil.

It was great to see so many clubs with more than one team participating. For a lot of these kids it was their first year. They did a great job, said Brian Trueman, president of the 4-H council.

The Sunrise club will vie for the title during the long weekend in May at the Nova Scotia Agriculture College in Truro. They last won the title in 1973.

Team members include Kenny Rector (captain), Brett Smith, Ashley Smith-Gaudet, Hannah Legere and Darrah Legere.

Ardeth Morgan, 10, has been a member of 4-H Sunrise club since she was six years old.

This year she competed with the B team in the cross-cut, pulp saw and the back-water tank race.

I love coming to the competitions because its fun to run around and its the only chance I get to see my friends from other clubs, said Morgan.

Other clubs from Cumberland County will also be attending the provincial competition for events like public speaking, demonstrations, club entertainment, poster making and host/hostess.

4-H clubs in Cumberland County have been in existence for over 35 years. Club members range in age between six and 18 years old.
