Pumkin Chunkin Rally

Well this is now history and think I can safely say everyone had a fabulous time. Many thanks to Lumatic for organizing this and the talk was that it is likely to be a yearly fixture from now on. Parade was great and the chunkin' was great although very hard to see the pumpkins when in flight. All in all just a great time and now feel like a real celebrity since my picture is at the top of Air Forums!

Some sights from Estancia

The Grand Procession




The famous pumpkin canons. This turned out to be a bit boring (to me) to watch after the first couple rounds. I'm sure it would be entirely different to shoot.



For my money the best of the "pumpkin chunkers". This one is smaller than it looks and allowed the kids to get into the act. It may have shot the pumpkins mere feet as opposed to the HUGE distances of the cannons, but I bet the kids were more satisfied.


All and all, the rally was a good time and I bet it keeps growing over the years. Great idea Marshal.
