A couple of fellows with too much time on their hands. The article has a lot of info on the cannon.

Here are the results from the 2009 World Pumpkin Chucking Championship. http://www.punkinchunkin.com/main.htm

All I can say is that I feel much safer with these folks using their guns to shoot pumpkins

no problem Bill. The World Punkin Chucking Competition can't get enough mentions in my opinion. It looks like now they just report no results as seroes. A few years ago they reported them as an icon of a pie, denoting that the pumpkin became mashed upon acceleration.

There are 13 classes for different agegs, genders, and classes of hurlers. The world record is over 4400 ft

my boss (and friend) was just telling me about the pumkin chucking thing today. apparently it is televised each year because he always watches it. he says it is extremely cool.
