For Pie Enthusiasts; Contest Information

Although I don't take part in any cooking contests, nor am I sponsored or being reimbursed for this post, I got this in my email and thought I'd pass it on to any of my readers interested in taking part in the 15th Annual Crisco National Pie Championships. I know nothing about the contest, since I don't take part and never plan to - but thought I'd pass along the information from my email box.
