Marge Lang was crowned the champion for the second year in a row. Our own Merlin Peterson was again a participant, but was unfortunately disqualified. His non-traditional peeling method was against the rules. Cutting the sides off with a knife just does not qualify as potato peeling.

But the rest of the contestants gave it their best effort. KMGK radio did a live “peel by peel” of the event. The grand champion for the 2nd year in a row was Marge Lang.
