Anyone grow Patission Strie Melange squash?

This spring I've planted the 'Patission Strie Melange' squash from Baker Creek seeds. This is a mixture of several different varieties of scallop squash, am I right? There are two particular plants in the mix that I love love love - best squash I've ever tasted! The others, I'm not crazy about. Does anyone know the names of the squash varieties included in this mix? I'm trying to save seeds from the two I like, but this time of year, we start losing our squashes to SVB, so I'm not sure if my two bagged squashes will make it to maturity... It would be nice if I could pick up the right varieties next year so I can just plant the ones I like.

Here's a link with picture of the squash. I think the two I'm liking are the top two pictured...

No, have you called Baker Creek?

RE: Anyone grow Patission Strie Melange squash?

No, I have not. I guess that would be a logigal thing to do (sheepish grin...).

That said, my bagged and hand pollinated squash seems to be growing rapidly, so I am encouraged that it may make it to maturity before the borers take down the plant. In fact, feeling so encouraged, I have bagged a male and female flower from the second plant I like to try my hand at seed saving again.
