We had a great turnout for the contest this year. All of the participants brought a great deal of talent, energy, and showmanship to the table, so there was some pretty stiff (friendly) competition!

The winner of the final round was Eric Ward, of Greenville Junction, runner up was Frank Hathaway, of Riley Brook, New Brunswick and Dave Leavitt of Woodland, ME came in third.

For the first time, this year a youth section for those under 16 was added; the top young callers from each regional competition were invited to take part in the final round of the championship. Our winner was Carter Barthelman of South Portland.

Altogether it was a fun event for all – we had some great contestants and an enthusiastic audience. Many thanks to everyone who was involved!
