Tim Janus & Larry McNeil missed the contest due to bad East Coast weather

Updated 9/17 5:03 pm newsok.com has an article & gallery of the contest. The article links to beautifulbrian.com for the video of Pat Bertoletti’s ice cream record. The okra was in bite sized chunks, which probably plays to Sonya’s strengths since a lot of chewing was not required.

Updated 9/18 9:05 am Lahunta has some pictures, a video and a contest report in her myspace blog
