To keep things fair we have a couple of rules at The Great Pumpkin Carnival. One set is the GPC (great pumpkin commonwealth) rules we follow for weighing any giant pumpkin on the day, the other is for the pumpkin racers.
GPC Weigh Off Rules
The full rule book can be viewed here. The main thing we look for is to make sure the pumpkin has no split, or hole into the cavity of the pumpkin.
Any pumpkin not up to GPC specifications will still be weighed on the day, but when submitted to the GPC will be classed as an exhibit pumpkin.
