First time at Stillwater as a grower, though as an exhibition entry for the regional HD contest. Despite the temporary location and lack of spectators, it was a great experience. HD lineup for the regional competition is shown. From left to right, we have: 1) Gale Woods: 1,054 Brown (1464 Brown X 1212 Brown), 2) Cedarburg: 1,263.50 Montsma (1872 Sippel X Self), 3) River Prairie Ginormous Pumpkin Festival: 1025 Bierle (1810 Werner X Self), and 4) Stillwater: 683.50 Hawes (1002 Ailts X 1211 Ailts). The 683 ended up with the regional crown. The two selfed 1501s, 1464 Brown and 1872 Sippel, seem to have come through with solid color.
The weather for the event was outstanding--hope it is as nice next year. I'd love to be back with a fruit that could contend for the top 10.
