There are only 7 competitors competing for fame and glory in our North Vs. South contest. There are five from Pennsylvania and two from Jersey, all listed here. Basically this is an organizer’s award for the best overall best score of the teams that aren’t in the immediate panhandle area (so if you are a MD/VA/WVA team you are in the Best of the Panhandle Contest.)
North vs South gives teams who came from further away a chance to win something and a nice little thank you for their efforts. In this case, it’s $50 cash and a gift basket that includes goodies from Big Fat Daddy’s . Just a little something something to say thanks for coming all this way!
Will a Jersey team take the cake representing the North? Or will the Pennsylvanians step up and reclaim the South? We know, calling Pennsylvania a southern state is kind of cheesy, but hey, we had to make it work. Good luck to all of you!
