Most Harvesters Working on the Same Field set Guinness World Record - southern Manitoba

It was a record-setting weekend in southern Manitoba. On Saturday 200 combines broke the Guinness World Record for the most harvesters working on the same field.

"It's proof what farmers can do and what the Lord can do for us. He can make things happen," said lead combine organizer Melvin Penner following the record-breaking harvest.

"The word awesome gets over used but this was that kind of experience," said Jack Froese, a Winkler-area farmer. "We were coming down the field from the north to the south and seeing a wall of combines coming from the other direction. It was really good to see."

Combines came from farms across southern Manitoba with drivers coming from as far away as Victoria, B.C. John Deere 6600s, Gleaner L2s, Massey 760s and early New Holland TR series combines were among the older and smaller machines taking part.

"When you talk to some of the guys and find out how far they've come to this. It's a lot of dedication that goes into this," noted Ted Dyck, another combine operator.  

Organizers split the mile-long field in half with the spectator area and farm show in the middle of the field. After the official countdown, they started harvesting at 1.5 miles per hour, moving, for the most part, side-by-side toward the middle of the field.

The event also included a farm show, concerts and equipment demonstrations. A hopper-bottom bin was also auctioned off for $23,500. All the money raised at the event will send children in developing countries to Christian camps run by Children's Camps International.

World’s Longest Cake set world record 2010 - Indonesia’s 65th Independence Day

65 years of independence in Indonesia is celebrated in style at the Kalimalang Festival in Jakarta. The Indonesian Tourism Academy and the Indonesian Chef Association, ICA, teamed up to create the world’s longest ever cake. And the Indonesian World Record Museum was on hand to make the award official.

[J. Ngadri, Indonesian World Record Museum]:
“Today is a culinary record. Indonesian World Record Museum has had some culinary records before, but all of them have been beaten. Now we have a new record in the longest category, it’s 227 meter of tapai cake. This cake is the longest ever made by Indonesians. We noted the previous record was a Swiss Roll cake, which only reached about 170 meters long.”

The record-breaking tapai cake was made by 30 Akpindo students with 20 professional chefs from ICA. It was five days in the making.

It was made using three quintals of cassava tape, 150 kilograms of flour, and 16 thousand eggs.

The cost came to 50 million rupiah.

To help welcome Indonesia’s 65th Independence Day, the committee chose tapai cake as the cake to break the new record.

The tapai cake is one of Indonesia's traditional foods that need to be popularized.

The record setting length of 227 meter came as a surprise to the committee.

[Paryoto, Indonesian Tourism Academy]:
“Our target is 210 meters; 210 meters means this year we celebrate Independence Day in 2010, to make it possible we decrease the 2010 to become 210.”

[Setiyanto. Indonesian Chef Association]:
“We are very proud because we have set a new record, it’s very special because this is a special Indonesian dessert, and this event helps to popularize it. What make us even more proud is that the cake, at 227 meters, exceeded our 210 meter target.”

At the end of the event, the record-breaking tapai cake was distributed to the public and festival visitors.

Greek Dancers set Guinness World Record 2010 - Biggest Greek dance

More than 150,000 people held hands and danced on the Greek island of Crete on Saturday to try to set a world record and dispel the gloom of economic austerity.

The dancers, some in traditional costumes, formed a human chain along a 200 km (125 mile) highway across Greece’s largest island while police halted traffic, event organizers said.

Locals and tourists tapped their feet to the sound of folk music for about 15 minutes.

“We feel proud. We believe we’ve set a new world record,” Spyros Prevezanos, head of the organizing group Planet Crete told Reuters. “Tonight we sent a message of hope, which is not related to money. We proved that there are more important values.”

A Guinness World Records spokesman said no record for the biggest Greek dance had previously been set and organizers of Saturday’s event, which initially aimed for 200,000 dancers, said they expected their world record bid to be accepted.

Greece is struggling to pull itself out of a debt crisis, implementing tough austerity measures in return for a 110 billion euro ($145 billion) EU/IMF bailout scheme.

Emiratis enter Guinness World Records with submission of “largest artificial date” in the world

UAE. Emirati poet, Hamad Sarhan Al Darie and his partner friend, Salem Rebhi Al Silawi have submitted an entry to the Guinness World Records for “the largest artificial date in the world”.

Al Darie and Al Silawi – who are based in Abu Dhabi and hope to see the emirate recognised in the Guinness World Records with this achievement – have completed the design and installation of what they hope is the largest artificial date in the world.

They recently received preliminary approval for the project after submitting the artificial date’s specifications to the Guinness World Records’ Organising Committee.

 Dr Rashid Ahmad Bin Fahd, Minister of Environment and Water, inaugurates the Lulu Date Festival at a colourful ceremony at Khalidiya Mall in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking about the project, Al Darie said: "The idea to design the largest artificial date in the world - and possibly get Abu Dhabi mentioned in the Guinness World Records - was inspired by the historical and ongoing importance of the real date fruit in the UAE and Gulf region, not only as a source of food, but as a vital part of the region’s customs, traditions and social values.”

The artificial date, which took seven months to complete at a cost of AED1.7million (US$463,000) - is 10.5m wide, 6m tall and 5m in depth.

The massive date – which was built in three phases - is hollow on the inside and can accommodate up to 20 people.

The first stage of the date’s construction saw 15 main workers putting in nine hours a day for two and a half months and using six tons of iron for the date’s foundation. The second phase saw the 15 creators put in 810 hours of work, placing 600kg of fibreglass material on the outside of the date, while the third phase involved dyeing and installing the date, which took 24 days to complete.

Al Silawi said: "I am very pleased to take part in the preparation of such an innovative project and I’m looking forward to seeing Abu Dhabi gain entry to the Guinness World Records for the third time."

Abu Dhabi was first recognised in the Guinness World Records in 2008 when the organising committee for the Liwa Date Festival prepared the “largest dish of dates in the world”.
