It is definately worth going if you are close. The enrollment is really low because it is the same weekend as Oklahoma. The local craft stores were very generous so ther are nice gifts for entrants.

Grandma G, I just looked at your cakes. They are Awesome. You should really come and enter. It is a fun weekend.
This contest is based on a points system. So, it is not like only three cakes in each catagory get a ribbons. So, you are not compeating against everyone else.
It is base on how many points your cake get wheather you get a ribbon or not.
I think you should give it a try.

This will be the 15th year.
It is sponsored by The River City Confectioner's club. We met the second Sunday of the month at Mangelsen's in Omaha. It is on 87th Street just off the interstate 680. We love to have new people join. This will be my third year as a member. It is fun. We have a short business meeting, tip of the month, and a demo of the month. We do 2 to 3 fundraiser during the year. We have a holiday party in december with a cookie exchange. A picnic in June. Lots of fun. Come join us if you can, we would love to have ya.

good luck! I miss Omaha so bad!!! I was born and raised there and have fond fond memories of river city roundup! My parents were actually one of the grand winners one year for their chili cookoff and got an all expenses paid trip to Pheonix, AZ to compete in nationals! Maybe one of these years I will make it back for river city roundup time!
