Horse Bowl attracts six 4-H participants

Six 4-H youth showed up Monday at Cloverleaf Hall to compete in the 4-H Horse Bowl competition. Among the six were junior Sierra Hopkins; intermediates Christina Montgomery, Danielle Weaver, Madeline Smith and Brena Bowman; and senior Celeste Hillock.

Juniors do not compete in regional competitions but, because a Horse Bowl team consists of five members, written tests will be distributed to various 4-H clubs to help fill out the rosters.

Regional competition will be held in Enterprise this year on Feb. 1. Winners at regional will advance to the state competition April 26-27 in Roseburg, while state winners will compete in Denver, Colo., in January of 2004.

The Horse Bowl is a takeoff from the old television show College Bowl with questions dealing strictly about horses.
