    This was really a fun event. Learned a lot about Vegan diets and meet a lot of very nice people. Seemed like everyone had the chatty cathy bug and conversation flowed like wine. I didn't know Honey was NOT vegan. One contestant almost got disqualified for using it on desert but main entree was allowed for judging. Good enough event to post again next year.

    I've been working in the yard after putting it off for a few weeks. I feel I need to continue making headway. So I'm going to cancel, sorry.
