Looks like this might be a Tasmanian record of 422kg held at the Beam Creek show.

That is correct, beat the Victorian record also that was held by pipster (i think?). Im sure Speedy (shane) can give us the full details. Congratulations to Shane and his daughters, fantastic family effort.
I also managed a reasonable first time entry of 238.5kg (526 pounds) taking second place.

Nice work for Speedy and a pretty impressive result for yourself.
Think mine is sitting at around 212kg, so very nice work indeed.

Hi Blue Silver and AC pumpkin, thankyou for your kind words.. Yes our pumpkins are a PB and weighed in at 422.5 kgs and My daughters Pumpkin come in at 362 kgs. We managed to break the Tas State record and the Victorian record.. Your Pumpkin was an absolute beauty Ac and a credit to you.. It looked heavy and went heavy. Look forward to your future growing.. Well done to you also Blue Silver with a great result this year and great looking pumpkin from what I did see on a grower diary..
