BEWARE of flying pumpkins! Join us in Colorado for Pumpkin Chunkin 2014!!!

The Honorable Lord Forrester will be returning to Aurora, Colorado on Friday, October 11-12 with his 25-foot and 14-foot trebuchets to vie for a chance at the title to win entrance into the nationals in Delaware.
He could use help with SCA demos, setup, and even crewing a machine! There is no cost for attendance.
Punkin Chunkin is an annual ritual where people travel for miles to see how far they can lob a gourd.
It's the 17th year for this zany event that engages the energy and ingenuity of youth and adults, while inspiring a fresh twist of creativity.
This year we have a full mile range to entice the "Big Guns" and make the competition more exciting.
