    Join us in raising funds for Give Kids the World during our first ever Tastykake Eating Contest!


    Tastykakes are small snack cakes that are popular in the New Jersey area. This contest will combine our love of the delectable treat with the desire to raise as much money as possible for Give Kids the World Village.

    WHEN: April 26, 2013 at DIS Game Night at the NJ DIS Meet Weekend

    RULES: Our contestants have three minutes to consume as many Tastykakes as possible. The person who eats the most will be declared the winner!

    And now....let me introduce you to our brave, hungry eaters....


    • Matt D. (darthvader92) :wave2:

      My name is Matt. I am from Bergenfield, New Jersey and love videotaping and taking photography in the parks. I love everything about Disney and have a vast knowledge of all things Disney past, present, and future. Ask me anything about Disney and I should be able to help you or answer your question! I hope you'll support me in my challenge to raise money for give kids the world during the tasty cake contest.



    • Greg S. (DUHGreg) :drive:

      Greg is the tribal elder in this competition. He is hoping to rely on his years of experience in snack-cake eating to gain an advantage. That, and his fusion of Western (I TastyKake, therefore I am), Eastern (Be One with the Krimpet) and Vulcan (Krimpet mind-meld) philosophies.


    • Kevin T. (UCONNFAN's Fiance) ::yes::

      Kevin is devilishly handsome and is known affectionately for his love of eating, video games, racquetball, and his fiance, UConnFan. He is proudly known among his college buddies for his record-setting consumption of 60 pieces of sushi in one sitting. He is a Disney Convert who has not yet joined the Disboards. He loves Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin and a tasty margarita on the Boardwalk. He currently works as a math tutor at the local high school while he studies for his actuary exams. That’s right, ladies, this man is handsome, athletic, and smart. Sadly, he’s taken. He’s a shoe-in to win this competition, so put your money where Kevin’s mouth is.


    • Kim M. (KimStaR) :hippie:

      Kim is 29 years old and hales from Manalapan, NJ. She is a registered nurse by day, but Fly Girl by night. She has been visiting WDW since the age of 3 and has been over 20 times since. Her favorite resorts are the Poly, Yacht Club, and Contemporary. Kim's favorite thing to do at Walt Disney World is eat! She plans her trips around food and is frequently visiting the "Food Porn" thread and the Disney Food Blog. One of her favorite podcast segments is the Dining Reviews. Boma Breakfast and Kona Cafe breakfast are a few of her favorite spots. Kim has been known to clean her plate before her husband, Ian, takes two bites and then stares at his food waiting for him to give up. Although she is little, Kim thinks of herself as a bottomless pit. Watch out boys!

    It would have had to be a steak or sushi eating contest for Corey to participate. :3dglasses
    We don't have that in our budget- especially if Corey was participating!!! :eek::faint:

    When someone makes a donation, they should put the name of the person they are sponsoring in the Comments section.
    (I am also finding it to be extremely helpful if they ALSO put their contestants name in the PAYPAL comments section too!!)

    As long as they also include their email address, if I have any questions, I can email them. :thumbsup2

    Click on the link and enter the code (NJDISMEET) which must be capitalized.
    Then enter the amount to be donated and proceed.
    Then they have to enter their email address, and first and last name.
    Then they get to the page where PayPal information is entered.
    If they don't have a PayPal account, they can set one up or click where it says they don't have a PayPal account. Then they'll get to a page where they can enter credit card info (or they'll log into their PayPal account).
    After they enter all the requested info, they'll get to a review page. On that page there will be a space for comments - and that's where they'll put your name.
    Hope that helps!

    I shouldn't really admit this, but here is the appropriate place to do it... I have been eating sleeves of girl scout cookies at a time (trefoils, yum).

    It's onnnnn!
