The GVGO will be running the tomato contest again this year in memory of Mike Demars
This is a free contest for any GVGO member. The GVGO will provide prizes.
Growers that sign up will be asked for their personal best tomato weight, if they have one. Once we have the final list we will put the growers in categories A, B or C depending on their personal best weight. Growers will be picked at random to form a team of three so that each team has a grower out of each category. Our club has a lot of great tomato growers and this could be a great benefit to the new growers. The whole idea of this contest is to have some fun, meet new people and learn some growing techniques from some of our veteran tomato growers.
So teams will consist of 3 growers and each is allowed to weigh 2 tomatoes for a total of 6 tomatoes per team. The team with the heaviest total weight wins. You can weigh your tomatoes at home on a digital scale and send me the pictures on the scale. You can enter as many tomatoes as you want but only your largest two will be recorded for the contest.
So let’s grow some tomatoes in memory of Zeke. It’s not too late to start your tomatoes. We will set a cut-off date of June 10th for the contest.
Post your name and personal best tomato weight here and I will sign you up.
Or you can send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
