Other Notes

The June 18, 2011, Bake-Off meeting had an unknown number of people attending, although I know 28 people entered the contest.

I counted 62 entries in all the categories, compared to 52 entries in 2009.

Interestingly that means the average number of entries per person this year was signficantly higher (2.2) than in 2009 (1.9).

If anybody knows how to reach Ashley Young, please let me know. She is not on our contact list and not a member of the SPBC group on Facebook.
