Official Rules

• Registration is limited to 12-15 participants in each age bracket.

• Awards given to Fastest (12-17), Fastest (18+) and Judges Choice in each category only.

• Two categories: Children (12-17) and Adults (18+).

• Please note that all decisions made by judges are final. The official rules are intended as a guideline for spectators and participants.

• Each contestant will be served a 8" round two-crust pie topped with blueberry filling. You do not have to eat the whipped cream, but you must eat the entire pie.

• You may not use your hands and no one can assist you. They must be kept behind your back at all times. Use of hands will result in a warning, and maybe disqualification if you do it often and intentionally.

• The contestant who finishes the pie in the shortest amount of time wins the contest. Judges will determine if the entire pie was completed, but as a rule of thumb, no portions of the pie measuring more than 1/2-inch should remain. Judging 1/2-inch sections can be difficult, judges will make the best call they can. Judges decisions are final.

• When a contestant believes they have finished the pie, they must stand up and put both arms in the air. Judges will immediately inspect the pie to verify.

• Visible signs of sickness may result in disqualification.

• Contestants will be issued safety goggles. Things can get messy, so bringing an extra shirt is advised.

• A check for $10.00 (to support the Yarmouth Food Pantry) and a completed registration form with acknowledgement of the waiver must be signed by each contestant prior to the start of the contest.

• Participants under 18 must have a parent or guardian present and must have a parent or guardian’s signature on the registration form.
