Great news! My contact at the Cumberland Ag Expo here in Pennsylvania got back to me and the Expo’s board liked the idea of hosting a seed-spitting contest and gave it the official green light.
The next step is to await further input from the board, which will come after their May 10 meeting. At that meeting, they’ll determine the best scheduling for the contest (which day and time during the three-day August event). Until then, I need to start putting together a rough outline of how the contest would be organized, including rules, an overview of the site logistics, how the contest would be carried out, and ideas for potential prizes.
