The Corn Maze was a real blessing this year, thanks to the hard work of so many volunteers. Sure beats the 'cardboard' Corn Maze of 2011. There were many single and team racers, many with the same speed, some repeated for better scores, all-in-all, times ranged from 9 minutes to one hour and 12 minutes. Watch for the Corn Maze to be open on Saturdays in September and October with daily prizes for different challenges.
There are still a few contests to be listed, names were not available at news time.
