I have phoned Ken Maynard and let him know that there are some growers who would help with the weigh off and that we are unable to help with fundraising. He told me that they have set up a new committee to do their own fundraising and that he would let us know if every thing is still a go before the 1st of May which is the GPC deadline for this year. Their failure to have a Midway pursay was a tactic to get the provider work with them within reason and they lost out. They will work to have this worked out for 2019. The fair still books it's advertising around the Giant Pumpkin Theme and now they hold the Canadian record. So stay tuned for the final decision for 2019.
PS I have the 2018 ribbons for the GPC pumpkin winners...let me know if you want yours...…..Dave McCallum
