Pancake Breakfast

Pancake Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

This morning, the sun was out, the birds were chirping and if you were around the State Fair Center in Minot the smell of pancakes covered the air.

That's because the Kiwanis Club hosted it's 54th annual Pancake Breakfast.

A constant flow of hungry people lined up to get their fill of coffee, sausage, and of course pancakes.

Over 60 individuals volunteered to help make sure the event ran smoothly.

With events like these, the Kiwanis' club is able to raise money for underprivileged kids in the area.

The group gives to over 25 different organizations for the cause.

(Zach Burdick, President, Kiwanis) "It just really means a lot that we can raise the money and people understand what we are doing and want to come out and want to support a great cause."

Zach says Kiwanis' will absolutely be hosting the breakfast again next year.

Well if that's the case, the chefs probably won't want to invite Perry Olson or myself to the next one.

That's because they needed to work extra hard just to keep up with our pancake demand.

The two of us had a friendly KX Pancake Eating competition.

The loser was forced to wear an ugly tie of the other persons choosing for one week.

At first, it was a neck and neck race and admittedly at times I felt like calling it quits but as Perry will tell you, there can only be one victor.

\(Perry Olson, 2nd Place) "I'm going to have to wear a really ugly tie for a week because of this... although some would say it matches the ties I normally wear."

(Gary Brode, Pancake Champion) "And this M & M marks 16 pancakes. In your face Perry."
