Default MAGTAG 2007 stats - which varieties won? etc.

I know somebody was keeping track, but it wasn't me!

I think Trudi took second price and Greg F. took third and first; but I can't remember the actual varieties that won.
I think Anne was keeping track of the actual number of varieties (60-something), and I think Trudi has the scorecards for the top 10. Enquiring minds need to know!

I didn't do an actual headcount, but it seemed to me that we had a few more attendees this year than last, despite the horrible weather.

Trudi (bless her) posted a list of the winners on GW. Here it is:

The biggest tomato was CHAPMAN, weighing 32.3 oz. [Supplied by Gene's - spkfero's - family, and presented by his grandson.]

Greg Flynn won 1st with Sungold and 3rd with Little Lucky.
I [Trudi] won 2nd place with Red Currant. (STUNNER!)

Greg's daughter made some adorable ribbons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

This is the list of 1-10.
1) 9.5 Sungold ~ Greg
2) 9.1 Red Currant ~ Trudi
3) 9.0 Little Lucky ~ Greg
4) 8.8 Taxi ~ Greg
5) 8.8 Black Cherry ~ Greg
6) 8.6 Bradley ~ BlueKat
7) 8.6 Earl's Faux ~ Greg
8) 8.5 Marianna's Peace x Prue ~ Greg
9) 8.4 White Currant ~ Wayne
10) 8.3 Brianna ~ BlueKat

You will notice there were just a few repeat winners from last year: Sungold (of course) and Black Cherry. We had a very different assortment of tomatoes this year. One of last year's top ten, Olena Ukrainian, wasn't even represented at the fest, and I know quite a few of us got seeds for it after tasting it. My OUs got blight and bit the dust early (and the few I harvested were VERY acidic); BlueKat says hers were a flop this year. Just goes to show what a difference the weather can make from year to year.

Hey, do I win an award for most family members at MAGTAG? My dad, two sisters, two of my five brothers, a niece, a nephew, my husband, and my mother-and father-in-law all showed up! And all had a good time, although my hubby Dave and nephew Ed wimped out. They left early to go to our air-conditioned house and watch Jackie Chan movies (although they return to help clean up). Can't complain too much, as Dave did serve ably as Grillmeister.

And Dave, as at MAGTAG 2006, didn't taste a single tomato. His loss.

Very intersting. Cherries dominated the top 5.
Thanks for posting the results. It's always good to see when others agree
with your faves.... Sungold... Black Cherry.... Little Lucky... Yumo!

Lee, it's been a pretty lousy tomato year here in the Mid-Atlantic. First there was a cold, wet spring, which delayed planting for many of us; then a drought.

I think that's probably why we had a very different assortment of tomatoes this year from those at MAGTAG 2006, and I think we simply had more cherries and small tomatoes in general, because they tend to be so prolific!
