IFOCE World Blueberry Pie Eating Contest part of RRS Tour!

The International Federation of Competitive Eating this week announced that sign-ups are now open for the World Blueberry Pie Eating Competition on July 28, 2007 in Brownsville, Oregon.

The eating competition is part of an all-day celebration of the film Stand By Me which was filmed in Brownsville in 1986. International superstar eaters already tentatively confirmed to attend are: Crazy Legs Conti, Erik the Red Denmark, and Pat "Deep Dish" Bertoletti, who is going after every pie title in the Federation. We expect more eaters to be announced soon. For more information about the eating contest or to register as a contestant, check out the IFOCE website.

For those not familiar with it, the IFOCE and their associated Major League Eating events are serious business. The International Federation of Competitive Eating, Inc. supervises and regulates eating contests in their various forms throughout the world. The IFOCE helps to ensure that the sport remains safe, while also seeking to achieve objectives consistent with the public interest -- namely, creating an environment in which fans may enjoy the display of competitive eating skill.
