Would you enter the OHH-lympics to play any of these games? What games do you think we should consider adding or taking away? We need your input on this, because while the games are fun, the planning is serious work! Help us out, and while you’re at it, mark your calendar for September 15th and come out to get in on the fun. Even if you don’t participate, you can bet it’s gonna be fun to watch!
Do you think you have a homemade pie recipe that is an award winner? Enter the Armstrong Pie Festival Pie Cook-Off and prove it! Categories include:
- Berry Pies (Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackberry, etc.)
- Fruit Pies (Apple, Peach, etc.)
- Nut Pies (Pecan, etc.)
- Cream Pies (Chocolate, Lemon, Coconut, etc.)
- Fried Pies
- Other (Chess, Buttermilk, Custard, etc)
There is no limit to the number of categories you may enter, but you may enter only one pie in each category. The crust and filling must be homemade (i.e. made from scratch), therefore no store bought crust, dough or can fillings may be used. Pie must be prepared and baked by the individual submitting the pie entry for judging, and all entries MUST be baked in an aluminum foil pan, and pans will not be returned.
The Entry Fee is $5.00 per pie, and a recipe MUST accompany each entry, with all recipes clearly printed or typed on an 8½x11 inch sheet of paper and include your Name, Address, Phone number, Recipe name, and Recipe category. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Ribbons will be awarded for each category, along with a grand prize “Best of Show” award, a Kitchenaid Mixer! If you enter in all six categories, the entry fee is only $20 for all 6 pies instead of $30.
So in all the big ideas getting thrown around with the planning for the Armstrong Pie Festival, I got to thinking what else we could do to make this thing bigger… and it hit me. The Worlds Largest Fried Pie! I got to looking, and I’ll be doggone if I couldn’t find a record on file.
Well, I went to see Blake at the Armstrong Pie Factory, and told him my idea. He thought it’d be fun to try, and I submitted the record attempt paperwork into the Guiness Books website. We’re waiting on what we’ll need to do to break or set the record, and working out how to do it, but I’ll make you a deal right now. Every person that competes in The Great Bed Race or the OHH-lympics can have a bite of it when it’s done!! How often do you get a chance to EAT A WORLD RECORD?!
I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
The Armstrong Pie Festival and Great Bed Race is coming! Think you can eat the most Armstrong Pies in 60 seconds? Do you have a great pie recipe that you think is a prize winner? Maybe you think you and four friends think you have what it takes to win The Great Bed Race?!
September 15th 2012 is the day to find out! The Great Bed Race is a time trial race that pits 5 person teams against the clock for a share of over $3000 in cash awards along with team medals for the top three teams in each category. There will also be medals and cash up for grabs for teams with the best overall, funniest bed, best business, best organization, and best school spirit…It’s going to be AWESOME! “Like Us” on Facebook to keep up with information as it comes available for the Armstrong Pie Fest!
