Default Chunkin' All Over the November 3rd DCT!

Halloween may be over but we are not through with our pumpkin fun just yet! Brace yourself, for this is Punkin' Chunkin' Day/Weekend .. an event generally held on the first Saturday or the first weekend after Halloween!

Punkin Chunkin is the sport of hurling or 'chucking' a pumpkin by mechanical means for distance. The devices used include slingshots, catapults, centrifugals, trebuchets, and pneumatic cannons... and boy! .. these competitor mean business! .. Look at these catapults and cannons!
Click the image to open in full size.This crazy event has its beginnings in 1986 and it is rumoured that it was started by a few bored dudes who decided that tossing pumpkins might alleviate their boredom .. From that first brainstorm of an idea came a competition that was to have far ranging impact! .. excuse the pun ..
There were rules of course .. 1) the pumpkins had to weight 8-10 pounds, 2) the pumpkins had to leave the machine as a whole unit and not in pieces, 3) the machines could not cross the starting line, and 4) no explosives were allowed .. (that was probably the best idea they had! .. can you imagine?)

Great fun! .. . And to add to the hilarity, contestants began to name their Punkin Chunkin machines!.. for example.. Launch-Ness Monster, Please Release Me, United Flingdom, Sir Chunkalot and Chunk-n-ology, .. just to name a few!

The Punkin Chunkin events have evolved into a family fest with lots of extracurricular entertainment for the spectators, such as amusement rides, food vendors, fireworks, live concerts, a pumpkin cooking contest, a chili cook-off, the Miss Punkin Chunkin pageant, and much more!

I have never had the pleasure of attending a Punkin Chunkin event.. have you?
