The Rochester Gourd Patch of the Idaho Gourd Society held a special gourd crafting contest with gourds donated by Robin Crowley-Mize. The gourds were all about the size and shape of watermelons.
Each person had one month to clean and complete their masterpiece. They could create anything they wanted as long as the gourd used was from the donated stash. Judging was done by everyone who attended the meeting by casting a vote for their favorite.
The results were amazing, with Teresa Vasquez winning first place, Michele Swan taking second place and Alica Sherer taking third.
