Big is the name of the game at the Fifth Annual Sid Brewer Classic sponsored by the Chaves County Giant Pumpkin Growers Association and held Saturday at the Eastern New Mexico State Fairgrounds, and Alan Nelson stakes his claim as 2019 king with his 403-pound winning entry, “Turbo.” He also is the MIG winner of the year, Most Improved Grower, for an entry that is 327 pounds larger than the one he competed with last year. A complete list of winners will appear in a future edition. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
