The spaghetti-eating contest,
sponsored by Fricke Calvert-Schrader, was a huge success during the
Saturday evening celebrations at Mount Pulaski's Fall Festival. Each of
the participants walked away from the table feeling stuffed full of
spaghetti. A few even decided they never wanted to see
Buff's Family Restaurant prepared the 10 gallons of spaghetti consumed during the contest. The owner was on hand to scoop and
weigh each plate that was dished out. The younger contestants
competed with about 2 pounds of spaghetti; adult contestants had
to consume 3 pounds.
Round one winner was Konjit Mott. She devoured her plate in record
The second-round winner was Jacob Meister. He believed that he could
have eaten more spaghetti, if he had to.
Finally, the adult-round winner was Brittany McCain, being cheered on
by family and friends. Ms. McCain was ecstatic that she beat out
"two grown men" for her prize. Surprisingly, after all that
spaghetti, the contestants still had room to enjoy the rest of the
treats of the fall festival.
