MLE will head to Baldwinsville, NY on Saturday, May 14th for the first-ever Wild Carp Week World Salt Potato Eating Championship, presented by JGB Enterprises!! A $10,000 -- yes TEN THOUSAND -- prize purse will be up for grabs as the world's best eaters take in Wild Carp Week with an MLE-sized portion of salt potatoes by their sides.

What is a salt potato, you ask? It's a young potato that is boiled in an extra-salty water to form a crust on the skin sealing in the delicious flavor of the potato while creating a creamy texture. Salt potatoes are a regional delicacy of the Syracuse area. The world will soon be very familiar with salt potatoes after Wild Carp Week serves em' up!!

The event will be part of the Wild Carp Week Kick-Off at Paper Mill Island in Baldwinsville. The day-long event will include activities for all ages from 11:00am - 8:00pm. The World Salt Potato Eating Championship is scheduled to take place at 2:30pm. Admission to Wild Carp Week Kick-Off is free.

Wild Carp Week is a weeklong carp angling tournament that is produced by Wild Carp Companies.
