What do you get when you combine...

an empty cornfield...


in the pumpkin capitol of the world...


with a group of people with nothing to do on a beautiful October Saturday...


and a bunch of people willing to build contraptions with the sole purpose of flinging 8 lb, round, orange objects as far as possible?????


You get the Morton, Illinois Annual Punkin' Chuckin Contest!!!


It's pretty sweet!

That looks cool. Definitely need to put that on my list of things to see someday, but that i probably won't really see.

What an awesome activity. We had one yucky pumpkin that we had too much fun destroy but that would have been fun.
