Laurain Lodge Beaver Island Morel Contest

The Laurain Lodge, feeling that someone besides Marge Peters (last year’s winner, pictured) must have the magic eye, is continuing its annual contest for the biggest Island-picked morel by offering a $100 prize.

Larry Laurain will pick the winter, using a special mushroom caliper to ascertain the circumference and height. In case of identical entrants, the tie will be broken by weight–and if they weigh the same, by taste. The contest will remain open until the day after no more morels are being found. (Note: inflation with an air pump is strictly not allowed.)

For more information, contact Larry and Theresa Laurain at the Laurain Lodge: (231) 448-2099
