Nice! It's been tipping it down with rain for ages over here so I haven't had the chance. I'm really hoping soon it dries up so I can actually have a go.

Awesome man!  A perfect hit!  I love the setting there too.  Looks like a great spot for slinging.

Some more, these show how tough the pumpkin really is , so glad I got a penetrating shot this year , and my first!!
This was after I got the shot I wanted , I used less desirable stones and wasn't as worried about capturing me throwing , later the pumpkin fell into the water and floated away for a few minutes.
Luckily I recovered it after some large stones were thrown to splash it to shore ,I will make a jack o'lantern for Halloween now, next year I plan on "sinking" a floating pumpkin
Challenge accepted!!!!!

And yes it's a perfect spot for slinging, almost endless odd stones.

The roundness of the pumpkin definitely shows the power loss of a glancing hit.  When I went shopping for my pumpkin I remember wanting to get one of a larger size to have a bigger target.  No such luck, you still need to hit it pretty much in the center for a good impact.

Great stuff!  Can't wait to see the floating pumpkin attack! Cheesy

It's also a good spot finding stones considering it's in Australia... and isn't limestone.

Damn you Mersa! Cry

I was thinking of getting my pumpkin today because the weather yesterday was beautiful but now it's back to grey and showers...  Angry

I might Have to miss this year. We've already had frost and it's looking to be wet and horrible from now on. Very annoying. I might have to do a late one with some other fruit once the snow comes in and it at least stops raining.

Thanks Mersa!  I'm humbled.  But know that if the voting was announced, I would have voted for you. Wink

Sorry there wasn't a break in the weather for you Kick.  Definitely next year!
