Planked Halibut Supper update and other weekend events

The planked halibut supper takes place from 4:30-6:30, not 4-6 as I posted earlier this week...

Other events this weekend in the 'L-C':

Hand Mowing competition! I wish I could attend...scraped from

Hay! Ross Farm hosting competition

For the second straight year, the annual hand-mowing competition is coming to New Ross.

This will be the fifth annual event hosted by Rural Delivery magazine. The competition is scheduled for August 23.

Last year there were 20 competitors, ages 12 years to 96 years.

Joan Lenihan, Ross Farm site supervisor, said because of the green movement the competition is becoming more and more popular.

"There seems to be a movement to growing locally, buying locally and becoming more environmentally friendly," she said. "Hand mowing has been growing more popular every year."

Hand mowing, for the most part, is cutting grass with a scythe.

Following the event will be related discussion groups about haymaking, and hay-piling, threshing and grain-stooking demonstrations. The popular hay-forking competition will also be back this year.

There will be music and a "tasters'" barbecue over the noon hour. Museum visitors, competitors and spectators are encouraged to pack a lunch of local foods for a picnic. Local foods can be purchased Saturday morning at the New Ross Country Farm Market in the farm parking lot.

Competitors can sign up by calling 1-877-689-2210.
