I guess you send big grovelling apologies to Missie and SUTTY, and make a correction here.

Good luck :dry:

Suggest next year that it's done by weight.

Top tip for camping....don't go.

Hiya,

No need to apologise bigB, where all human and make mistakes.

I thought it just a mix-up or even a practical joke :) :)

A big THANKS for running the competition. Hope you will do it again next year

If the pumpkin grown on an adjoining plot is anything to go by, some will have to be cut up and weighed in sections  :lol: :lol:

If you want to be happy for a short time - get drunk.

If you want to be happy for a long time - fall in love.

If you want to be happy forever - take up gardening!

Won't doing it by weight lead to legal action for bad backs!!! :D
Also - all scales measure differently, whereas all tape measures tend to be the same ( unless they are stretched and they will read smaller!!   ???

What we need is a list of suggestions for judging / measuring the best pumpkin of the season then we could have a vote on how this should be judged.

So far we have:
  • by weight
  • by girth

Any other suggestions?

As virtually every other pumpkin weigh off is done by weighing strangely enough...ahem...makes sense.

Surely the organiser of the comp should have the choice and it's up to people to enter.

I noticed that some people measured with the metal tapes and others with cloth tapes. The accuracy would differ.

Easier to take pics to prove your pumpkin. A pic of it with the weight scribbled on.
