Spring Grove, Minnesota ( http://www.sgsyttendemai.org ) has officially become the recognized home of one of America’s most interesting Competitive Eating Championships after announcing The Spring Grove Syttende Mai National Lutefisk Eating Championship to be held on May 20, 2012 during the annual Spring Grove Syttende Mai celebration and festival. All Pro Eating Promotions ( http://www.CompetitiveEaters.com ) will sanction this National Competitive Eating Championship and handle all contest related activities. Not only will the contest award prize money to the top three finishers, but a new All Pro Eating National Lutefisk Eating Record will be established.
“Syttende Mai marks Norway’s declaration of independence and celebrates the signing of Norway’s constition.” said Paul Folz, President of The Spring Grove Syttende Mai Committee. “I believe The Spring Grove Syttende Mai National Lutefisk Eating Championship provides a wonderful way for everyone at this year’s celebration to get a taste of our history and heritage.”
Todd “The Hungry Genius” Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating, commented, “Norwegians take the history of their food very seriously and we are honored to be involved with The Spring Grove Syttende Mai National Lutefisk Eating Championship! This event truly celebrates the Norwegian nourishments that we Americans can be thankful for - although some may want to cheer this unique Eating Championship from an upwind location. At the end of the day, when a new National Lutefisk Eating Champion is crowned and the new All Pro Eating National Lutefisk Eating Record is announced, I would be surprised if the crowd doesn’t proclaim in unison ‘Alt For Norge’.”
