2019 Giant Pumpkin Bake-Off

 Pull out your favorite pumpkin recipes and you could win GREAT PRIZES and become the Grand Gourd Gourmet!!!

 All entries must use pumpkin as the main ingredient (not pumpkin spice).

 There are 2 categories that you can enter:

 Pie        Non-Pie Dessert

 Entry Fee:  A $5 donation per entry is required.  All proceeds will benefit the Mother Teresa Maternity Home in Placerville (which is not affiliated with this event).  In lieu of monetary donation, a fun baby item will be accepted and appreciated.

 Completed entry forms must be returned to Constantly Growing, Sam’s Town Cyclery or electronically by Wednesday, September 20, 2018 in order for you to be eligible to compete. Entries may be delivered to Constantly Growing, 6200 Enterprise Drive, Diamond Springs, California from September 28 through 11:00 a.m. on September 29, 2018.  

 YOU NEED NOT BE PRESENT TO WIN (but your pumpkin dish does)!

 Rules:  Entries will be judged based on taste, originality, and presentation. If there is a tie, the entrant with the highest score for taste will win. If there is still a tie, the judges will sample those dishes again and choose their favorite.

 Prizes:  First place in each category will be awarded a $25 Starbucks gift card (so you can get - what else - Pumpkin Spice Lattes)!  Second and third place in each category will be awarded a ribbon.

 The GRAND GOURD GOURMET will win $100, a plaque, and bragging rights for the entire year! This dish will be judged as best overall among all categories.
