Dear Fellow Canadian GVGO members
Seeing that the 1 Ton mark has been surpassed in Europe & the US, it's now time to see who can be the 1st person to break the 2,000 mark here in Canada. Here below are the details to the GVGO's largest contest of all time.The GVGO's Great Canadian 1-Ton Challenge
- open to All Canadians
across this great country
- 2016 Canadian GVGO membership is required
- pumpkin must be weighed at a Canadian official GPC sanctioned weigh off
- prize will be $5,000
for the 1st person or in case there are 2 weighed in over 2,000# in 2016, then the largest of the 2 will win the money.
- if no Canadians grow a 2,000# pumpkin in 2016, then there will be another $500 added to the prize each year until it's won
- Winner must donate up to 50% of the seeds (depending on the amount available) & make the pumpkin or images available to the main sponsor for their advertising needs to qualify for the prize money
More details are being worked out at this time. The GVGO is sponsoring this challenge at this time, but are actively looking for a partner & major sponsor. If you can help, please email us at email@example.com
