Get ready for the challenge, the glory, the deliciousness! We double-dog dare you to become one of our comp-eat-itors in either the Adult or Youth categories. Register at the event.  Contest starts at 10 sharp! Be there or be hungry.

The trophies are custom built by our Apple Fairies and almost as good as the pies ;)
