Officials concerned by the lack of blogs for this years event have begun analysis of MPFC classics going back over a hundred years.
Initial results confirm that so far this year there has been exactly one blog recorded. When combined with recent events around the world and multiplied by the the Mayfield Beer Index, this indicates that... more

Part 1 A big thank you to Ronny for another fantastic event. I'm ready to enter the dates for MPFC 2013 into my BlackBerry. Special mention to Captain Bluering for his MasterChef impersonation - this was the icing on the cake as he was worthy of special thanks just for putting on 2 kegs.

Part 2 Also, Fish'n Phil thank you for the lasagne. After already consuming meat from 9 different species I didn't think I could be tempted by any more protein. Then - along comes the Magic Burger (2 slices of white bread, a slab of lasagne finished off with BBQ bacon). This sandwich alone had me lining up for next year's event. Tight lines all, MMM (Mr Mahi Mahi)

Ditto Mahi, another fantastic weekend away very honoured to be on the trophy... already have some great ideas to 'value add' for the 2013 trophy. My two boys were very impressed when I walked into the front door with Champion Hat, Trophy, and FISH!! Long may the classic reign. Maybe we can get a special guest appearance from Malcom N. next year....:-)

Flathead Fill's team which included... more
