Hobby Hog

Some players step above and beyond the basics of their hobby and craft. Some pull away from the herd to stand out, and as such, are the tast….I mean, best out there! We want to recognize that time and skill. As such, we have the Hobby Hog competition with the coveted Golden Bacon for the select few that make the final cut.
