Pancake Day Festivities Kick-Off Saturday
02/11/2010

Pancake Day festivities will get under way at 9 a.m. Saturday morning at the

Knights of Columbus Hall in downtown Liberal. Pancake Day t-shirts, aprons,

and other merchandise will be for sale, and the flipping and eating contests

will begin at 10 a.m. The winner in the flipping contest is the person who

can flip a flapjack the most times in a three-minute period. (Division I

flips for a shorter time.) This contest is open to all ages, with

contestants flipping in three separate age divisions (I: 7 years and under;

II: 8-13 years; and III: 14 years and older).

The pancake eating contest, set to begin immediately after the flipping

contest is over, requires entrants to compete to see who can completely

consume a set number of pancakes in the shortest amount of time.

The eating contest features the same three age divisions as the flipping

contest.

The flapjacks will be the same size for everyone, about five inches in

diameter. Division I contestants will be required to eat one pancake,

division II pancake lovers will consume three flapjacks each, and those aged

14 and older will be hurrying to down five pancakes each.

Cash prizes of $25 for first place, $15 for second, and $10 for third will

be awarded in each division.

Saturday morning will also feature the Mayor¹s Challenge, where Mayor Joe

DeNoyer will face off in a pancake flipping contest with other community

leaders, including County Commission Chair Joyce Hibler, Southwest Medical

Center CEO Norm Lambert, Seward County Community College/Area Technical

School President Dr. Duane Dunn, and a representative from USD 480, to be

announced later.

Contestants must sign up at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 323 N. Kansas

Ave., beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday. All contestants must sign up at least

30 minutes prior to the beginning of their division/contest.

The seventh annual Pancake Day cooking and recipe contest, also set for

Saturday, will award cash and prizes valued at $450. The contest is open to

anyone age 12 or older living within a 70-mile radius of Liberal.

As of Wednesday, the cooking contest had only four entries, so there¹s

plenty of room for more. Creative cooks can come up with any type of dish,

ranging from main dishes to dessert, and, of course, any and all variations

on pancakes. The recipe must some include type of pancake mix as a main

ingredient and it must be an original creation.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place, with entries

judged on taste, originality and creativity, use of product and appetite

appeal.

First prize is $300 in cash and merchandise. Second prize is $100 in cash

and merchandise and third prize is $50 in cash and merchandise.

Those interested in entering may pick up entry forms at the Liberal

Convention and Tourism Bureau, One Yellow Brick Road. Contestants will be

given a complete copy of the rules when they pick up an entry form. Entry

forms and rules may also be downloaded at www.pancakeday.net

.

Completed entry forms must be returned to the Liberal Convention and Tourism

Bureau by 5 p. m., Friday. Entrants will prepare their dishes and bring them

to the Knights of Columbus Hall, located in downtown Liberal, Saturday

morning, Feb. 13.

The public is invited to attend and to sample the dishes after winners are

announced.

The Pancake Day British High Tea will begin at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Baker

Arts Center, 624 N. Pershing, in Liberal.

The High Tea offers an opportunity to sample an authentic taste of Olney,

England, with a menu of finger sandwiches, savories and sweets, the three

traditional categories of food served at an English tea.

To celebrate the 61st Liberal-Olney Pancake Day race, the décor at the tea

will feature vintage black and white photographs of past Pancake Day events.

Tickets should be purchased in advance, but will also be available at the

door if any remain.

Tickets are available at the Tourist Information Center, One Yellow Brick

Road (across the street from Dorothy¹s House).

For more information on the tea or any Pancake Day event, call 624-6423.
