Default Winner of the First Buffalo-Niagara Party

Hi All,
I just got home a little while ago. What a day! Everything turned out so wonderful!! I do believe we had a great first time event. I have pics and so does Hilde, but we still have to work on downloading them and all.
Anyway, I figured I would post the winners since I'm sure some would be interested to know the results.

Sweetest by a long shot -Sweet Gold grown by Hilde
2nd place was Sungold grown by Mark Korney

Ugliest was grown by Marcia Ritchie, but I don't know what variety it really was!

Boldest Flavor was a tie between Black Sea Man grown by Marcia Ritchie, and Azchoyka grown by me and Hilde. Norm the eldest grower there was the tie breaker(who voted for neither) and picked Black Sea Man

Smallest went to Sungold grown by Mark Korney.
Second place went to Gardener's Delight grown by me.

Biggest went to Earl's Faux grown by Rob Kavanaugh at 1lb 8.7 oz
There were quite a few close in weight grown by Mark Korney

Best Overall went to Earl's Faux grown by Rob Kavanaugh.(I also had Earl's there too, but I think Rob's was much better.)
Second place was Stump of the World grown by me.
Third place was a tie between Black Russian grown by Norm Brown and Black Cherry, I think was grown by Marcia Ritchie.

I'm so happy it everything turned out so well. We had such a wonderful group of people show up!!!

I had so much fun at this party.
Remy worked so hard to make this nice and she did a great job. Mark had so many tomatoes there and even brought this huge bag of seeds to share with everyone.
Hilde....The craziest, sneakiest, most daring photographer I've ever met. She is lurking everywhere. You have to keep looking over your shoulder to make sure she is not there. I even closed the curtains when I went to the Loo.LOL.

Zana is too cool. I love her. One of those people you just click with right away.

Thanks to all who worked so hard on this. I had a great time and can't wait until next year.

I feel like I was there, even without seeing all the pictures, yet! Well, I was sort of. :-) You guys did Great!

Mark was so uptight about getting it put together I figured at the moment of truth you guys would have to cart him around in a wheelbarrow. LOL. Someone needs to go wake him up. :-)

If you want more pictures of specific varieties, please pm me.

Terry,
You're right about Hilde! She took a lot of photos, but that's great we have a good record of what happened.

Earl,
I don't know if you saw in the other thread that I posted Earl's Faux was picked as best by some people who don't know the tomato!
You're right about Mark! I kept telling him it would all turn out right, and it did.
Remy

Remy, yes. I saw Faux won Best and Biggest, just modest I reckon. :-) Seems like Bob knows how to grow Faux.
