Pie Fes­ti­val Judg­ing & Awards

Catron Courier - - Front Page - By Leti­cia In­cre­mona

First I have to say that I was not a lover of pie when I moved out here to Que­mado a year ago. Of course, since re­lo­cat­ing I have been con­verted, upon vis­it­ing Pie Town I had ab­so­lutely no ex­pec­ta­tions. En­ter Kathy Knapp and her Pie-O-Neer, in­stant con­ver­sion! I love pie!

Fast for­ward to Pie Fest 2015, the win­ners were young and the used-to-be young. These bak­ers take their pie se­ri­ously. I had the priv­i­lege of speak­ing to for­mer queens and watch­ing the coro­na­tion of the cur­rent King and Queen, so fun!

I wanted to thank the judges, I am in awe of their ca­pac­ity to choose the win­ning pies, wow to pos­sess those skilled taste buds.

I watched as they in­spected the ap­pear­ance of each pie and as they care­fully brought those pie filled forks to their mouths, you could see the magic hap­pen­ing. Jot­ting down what they just ex­pe­ri­enced and mov­ing to the next ad­ven­ture. Even­tu­ally the win­ners were an­nounced and their duty was done.

Thank you judges for car­ing

and re­spect­ing the hard work of these con­tes­tants, you make their dreams come true.
