Judges favorite Caddy 2012
SHIP BOTTOM, N.J.
- Aug. 2, 2013
-- If you have ever been to the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce Chowderfest over the past quarter of a century, you may have noticed them. Like a true team player silently doing its part, supporting the overall goal. It comes in all shapes and sizes, but the mission is the same; help get as much chowder samples from the tents into the hands of those who wish to taste. Last year, the first official recognition came with the Clever Chowder Cup Caddy Contest, bringing 24 entries stopping by the press tent to have photo taken to be submitted to appointed judges. Last year, Carla Ciulla, of Carmel, NY was selected by the judges as 2012 favorite with Honorable Mentions going to Andrew Schuler of Collegeville, PA and Christianne Gadd of Bethlehem, PA. The favorite received 2012 Chowderfest merchandise.
This October 6, its game on with two contests, with Chowderfest patrons stopping by press tent to enter their clever caddy for judging to choose the winning caddy based on the combination of function, creativity and use of championship. Also as a throw back to Chowderfest past, a special drawing for anyone who still has the Panzone Record Chowder Caddy, given out by the Panzone Chowder booth in 2010. This drawing is sponsored by Panzone Pizza And Pasta and was created to honor Frank Panzone, Chowderfest Chairman and Past Southern Ocean County Chamber President who lost his battle to cancer late 2012. Anyone with the Record Caddy may enter by stopping by the press tent on October 6 and receive a ticket to the drawing for a Panzone Pizza & Pasta Gift certificate.
