I'd like to thank everybody who attended the weigh off yesterday. It was a great surprise to have 11 pumpkins show up (one all the way from Ormstown Quebec) plus all the LG's tomatoes and other veggies that were brought out for exhibition. It made for a nice show.

 

Jim and Kelsey Bryson got top honors for the pumpkin with a 1792.7 lb. beauty.

Art Johnston and John Butler had a new PB with a 1620.2 lb. of there own.

 

Art and John also had the longest gourd at 116"

 

I was lucky enough to win the tomato competition with a 5.21 lber.

 

Jim and Kelsey also won the biggest sunflower head at 22 3/4"

 

Full results will follow soon.

 

Again thanks, Zeke

I put the results of the weigh off on the GPC site last night but don't see it on there this morning.

Not sure if it takes a bit to show up or if I did something wrong. I'll keep checking and get them on there.
