Goldmine Tall Tales & Ice Cream Contest, July 14, 2012

The Tales were fabulously creative and the ice cream delicious!  The backdrop of Baker's Creek Park and the agreeable weather enhanced our overall experience.  With an audience of more than 30, seven contestants told tales that stirred the imaginations of the young and old alike.  The speech titles provided a hint of what was to come, but the delivery gave each title life.  

We journeyed from  "Silver Linings" through "The Rabbit Hole" with "Minooj the Monkey"and  "The Ringtailed Wompus Cat"  From "Impossible Meetings" to the "North Bans Sex" and "I Don't Know"....somehow we arrived at our final destination. Thanks to all of our speakers and to the judges who arrived at a very difficult decision.

Congratulations to our 2012 Goldmine Tall Tales winners!

Nothing delights our tastebuds more than homemade cream.  The Ice Cream Contestants didn't make it easy for the judges who savored the flavors and eventually allowed the crowd to do so as well!

Congratulations to our 2012 Goldmine Ice Cream winner!
