Master Blade

Ok, so we decided on how to handle who gets to be the first name on our trophy. The most impressive carving on the lot. It could be the “All Ages Freestyle” winner, it could be the winner of “Sea Screecher” or an amazing entry for “Let there Be light ” that just didn’t make sense for the category name and did not even place first or second. We are going to give the judges a little criteria to follow on this one too.

– It should look good in daylight and more importantly at night.

– Carving quality should be considered ( it is a carving contest after all )

– Scale should not be the most important consideration, although if everything else is covered, scale could make the difference.

– Possibly most of all, a clever & creative concept should be rewarded whether it fits a category or not.

Good Luck!

2012 Pumpkin Carving Contest…

We are disappointed to announce that due to Superstorm Sandy, we had to cancel our annual
pumpkin carving contest. However, we wish to thank, the many, many, local businesses and residents who stepped up and sponsored our clubs efforts to fundraise this year. Their generosity enables us to continue serving our community and allows us to contribute to our very important network of local charities. With their donations and the unspent prize money we are also able help the blind and the deaf with our support of The Guide Dog Foundation and a number of others organizations that serve their essential needs.

Our area was fortunate to have avoided the terrible devastation suffered by others not so very far away and we urge everyone to reach out in any way possible to help our neighbors get through these difficult days.

We look forward to seeing everyone next year, hopefully under clear skies!

2012 Pumpkin Carving Contest Canceled!

Sorry everyone, we held out as long as we could but the weather report just got worse so we decided to cancel a little in advance. We assume most would carve today and wanted to stop you before you went too far. If it’s too late, you have a great pumpkin carving for Halloween!

Since Tuesday will still be stormy and Wednesday is Halloween we will just have to skip this unlucky 13th year of the event, spooky!

The Show Must Go On!

The Carving Contest is still on for this Monday at 5pm. We will hold the contest inside the Community House if the weather does not cooperate. If we do go inside candles will not be allowed. We will have a number of battery operated tea candles on hand but please bring your own battery operated light source if you can in case we run out. Since we will probably be inside please plan on containing your entry on a tray or board if it has more then one base. This also allows for easy transport to the stage if you win.

If you need pumpkin carving ideas please browse all the photos of past pumpkin carving contests in our Pumpkin Carving Galleries and visit Not Your Average Jack for more photos from past contests.
