Rutabaga Curl draws a crowd at the Ithaca Farmers Market

The 2009 Rutabaga Curl marked the end of another successful farmers market season here in Ithaca.

The Rutabaga Curl is a sporting event that draws about 80 competitors to hurl rutabagas down a runway, attempting to get as close to a cone as possible without passing it. This year, Lauretta Dolch took first place by rolling her rutabaga to within 6 inches of the cone.

Videos from the 2008 event speak for themselves:
