10 things you'll ALWAYS see at a #YFCAGM in Blackpool

1. AGM Virgins - hundreds of them, covered in black/red marker pen, strange fancy dress costumes and sporting a slightly confused and scared expression.

 

2. Unusual drinking vessels - “Let’s be mean and make all the AGM virgins drink out of wellies for the whole weekend!” Normally weird contraptions made at home out of diesel funnels and alkathene pipe.

 

3. Three-legged people - and no we don’t mean people who have miraculously sprouted another leg. Seems like a good idea at the time until you’re three drinks in and the toilet is calling!

4. T-shirts you can’t wear in front of your family - we’ve all seen them. T-shirts enough to even make fellow young farmers cringe! Remember the rules guys...

 

5. The guy/girl asleep in the corner of the Winter Gardens - the person who partied too hard all day but couldn’t quite bring himself to go to bed before everyone else! How anyone can sleep in a room of six thousand young farmers - mind blowing...

6. The giant queue in the all-night McDonald’s - the lights come on and appetites are big. Time to head for the famous golden arches with the other 5,999 young farmers - could be waiting a while! Unless you’re a kebab connoisseur.

 

7. FREE SUNGLASSES! - free sunglasses are always treated like a prized possession and are usually worn for the entire weekend, mostly inside nightclubs. Pointless? Who cares...

8. Farmers Guardian shirts - the original and best. But of course we’d say that. Young farmers are a generous bunch and you’ll find up to 1,000 of them donating their £1 to charity - in return for a classic FG shirt. Snazzy.

 

9. Selfies, selfies, selfies - You can’t have fun without a selfie can you? There’s always a bouncer/policeman/local who’s really fun and gets into the YFC spirit!

 

10. The ONE person who got a tattoo - you know who you are. You got carried away with the charms of the Lancashire coast and got something stupid marked on your body for the rest of your life.
