One area in the article that was not clarified but was discussed is that MePGO plans on holding a " First time growers contest " open to anyone in Maine who has NOT grown a giant pumpkin/squash to enter in a Maine Fair or weigh in . We will be using names of new members who sign up between todays date ( Feb 19 , 2012 ) and lets say May 31st.
Those new members will be qualified for cash prizes at 2 planned giant pumpkin contest , one in the Sanford area and the other in Damariscotta in 2012 .
Planned prizes at BOTH locations for NEW growers/members are :
1st $ 200.
2nd. $ 100.
3rd $ 50.
That's a total of $ 700.00 so hopefully we have a large number of new memberships to help pay those amounts .
Whoever wins money at one location cannot win in the second location .
IF you know of anyone who is interested in learning how to grow giants show them how to sigh up to MePGO so we can help them get started.
IF you know anyone or any company who you think might be interested in helping sponsor our weigh in's prize money please have them contact me at berardal@hotmail and use MePGO sponsor in the subject box.
EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS !
