Sloppy Joe’s 40th Annual Hemingway® Look-Alike Contest Update

Due to the coronavirus crisis, highest risk continues to be large in-person gatherings where it is difficult for individuals to remain spaced at least 6 feet apart and attendees travel from outside the local area.

Our intentions are to name the 40th Papa this year. However, at this time we can’t commit to details of event.  Mid-May we’ll evaluate the environment and plan accordingly, if a limited or scaled down contest is necessary it will be held in a safe environment.  While we understand contestants and guests need to make travel arrangements, we are holding off posting entry form and registering contestants until June 1st.  With things moving in the right direction, we may be able to plan something in-person (July 22-24, 2021).  This page will be updated as plans are made.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Papa 2009 David Douglas and Donna Edwards/Sloppy Joe’s
