***New this year…we are having an apple pie contest! Members of the public are welcome to enter this new contest. There will be two divisions, one for the participants of the encampment, who will bake their pies over their campfires, and one for anyone else who wishes to enter.
Prizes and ribbons will be awarded for the top three winners in each category. Any kind of apple pie is eligible. Entries should be brought to the concession tent in River Bend Park, where the encampment is being held, by 2 P.M. on Saturday May 12th. Judging will take place at 3 P.M.

After the judging, remaining pieces of the pie will be sold to hungry event visitors. Judges for the contest will be Lahn Neu of Horicon, Betty Krahn of Horicon, and Patrick Buchs of Beaver Dam. For any questions regarding the contest, please call Geri Pyrek, 485-2786.
