Only 12 days till our 6th Glad Gardens Weigh Off and plans for our event are coming together nicely. We will have 14 categories of vegetables for both Adults and Young Gardeners (under16) and for those with something unusual that does not fit in one of these categories we will have our Open Vegetable Class. We are encouraging everyone to bring all that they have grown this year so we will have a really big showing for our event. We will have activities for all ages from viewing all the large and tall veggies to games for the kids, BBQ, and raffles.
The film crew will be with us all day on Saturday taping footage for a show on Outrages Vegetables to be aired on major TV network. They will be filming all the entries as well as conducting several interviews with the growers and the audience.
How can you help :
- Bring as many entries as you can – We want Glad Gardens to be chalked full on Giants. Also you do not have to be a club member to enter (if your neighbor has a giant tomato, etc….), encourage others to enter.
- Tell Everyone : We have posters throughout the valley and beyond. We also have the event information on our web site, various media outlets, and the event poster is on our Facebook page for you to share.
- Fill out your entry forms : Attached is the competition entry form and the entry data form if you are entering one of the six vegetables under the GPC ( pumpkin, squash, tomato, field pumpkin, watermelon,or long gourd). Be sure to include all the information you can as it will make entry into the GPC records much easier. Forms Available on this web site under the Events Tab
- If you have a job on the event list please make sure you get it done. If you are having any trouble or can’t get something done please let Paul know at firstname.lastname@example.org
We all work in our gardens from the spring on for this event so have a great couple of days and really enjoy the two days of fun and competition.
