The Internet Shrine and Library for Pumpkins
* * * * * * *
Just when you thought you'd heard of everything, along comes a bunch of people trying to toss pumpkins farther than anyone else in the world. And so is born the "Pumpkin Chunkin Contest ". It is held every year. This contest has taken on very serious competition with the competitors spending mega bucks to pitch a pumpkin with an air cannon as far as one will go. The limitation is the pumpkin. The force of the cannon canpulverize it.
The one mile mark is in serious jeopardy of being reached. It is only a matter of time and finding the right pumpkin, one hard enough to be launched without vaporizing.
The Pumpkin Chunkin contest, also called "Pumpkin Chuckin", has multiple categories for kids and adults.
How far can a pumpkin be "tossed"? The current world record is over 3/4 of a mile! Participants are trying their best to hit the one mile mark. See the Current world records.
Competitions are held Nassau, Delaware and Morton Illinois.
Here are some pictures of one of the air cannons:
