3 More Sleeps!

My husband Scott Carley’s 1st giant pumpkin placed 1st (out of 20 entries) at contest #1 on September 26th in Washington, USA!! Three more sleeps until the Official Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off Event this Saturday, October 3rd at Krause Berry Farms in Langley, BC! Contest # 2 for Scott! Competition is HUGE!! One of Scott’s giant pumpkin pals has a pumpkin really close in size to Scott’s 2nd giant pumpkin…but it all depends on which one is heavier…it will be a close call! Scott’s saving his 3rd giant “THE BIGGEST” pumpkin for contest #3 on October 10th in Washington, USA — Scott hopes to to beat the BC Giant Pumpkin record of 1,536.5 pounds that was set by Giant Pumpkin “WORLD RECORD” holder Jake Van Kooten in 2008!!

Triple Threat

This year’s Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off is going to be BIG!! Did you know that Scott presently has 1 pumpkin over 1,400 pounds and 2 additional pumpkins over 1,300 pounds?! He can only enter 1 pumpkin per weigh off event, so he is entering 3 different contests (1 in Langley BC on Oct 3 and 2 in Washington USA on Sep 26 and Oct 10) … AND … if his aggregate weight for all 3 pumpkins exceeds 4,000 pounds he will be awarded the coveted Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC) jacket — it’s kind of a BIG deal!! www.greatpumpkincommonwealth.com
