17th Annual International Rutabaga Curling World Championship to be held December 20 at the Ithaca Farmers Market!

Attention, Rutabaga loyalists, extreme sports fans, cruciferous athletes, ne'er-do-wells, hardened criminals, families with children, and folks with well insulated coats: The Ithaca Farmers Market has announced that the 17th Annual Rutabaga Curling World Championship will again be held at the market's Steamboat Landing pavilion, December 20th, the last Saturday market for the 2014 season. Market starts again in January, indoors at The Space @ Greenstar. Games start at High Noon, and there will be a Turnip Toss for youngsters, who are for some reason extraordinarily talented at root tossin' and so have been banned from normal Rutabaga play. Registration fees include your very own rutabaga to bring home and turn into soup. The Cruciferous Choir will be in attendance with their Rutabaga-ized version of Handel's Messiah. To get involved with the Rutabaga Curl pre-event planning, contact aaronmunzer@ Volunteers are welcome with open arms, and bushels of rutabagas to grade.
