At our recent Christmas Social President Ron Muis presented Gerard Ansmes with a cheque for $250 as the winner of this years bushel gourd contest. Gerard grew the largest bushel gourd from the 108 Nieuwenhoff seed weighing in at 262 Lbs. This was the first year for most AVGVG members growing this new GPC Vegetable and not only did Gerard win the contest but also placed second in the world rankings. Thanks to John Nieuwenhoff for providing the seeds to all of our members.
Congratulations Gerard !
