Pumpkin contest!
Sep 28th, 2018 at 8:18pm
 
Halloween is coming and with it, PUMPKINS!!!
Letís all share in this friendly competition.
Stand around 15-20 meters from your pumpkin and get some footage of you slinging at it.
I donít think Iíll hit mine too much and that distance is close enough to give
Most of us a solid chance of scoring some points.
I was aiming at a Cup again today and got within a footís distance from it a few times. Pumpkin should be hittable.
Letís post our footage and maybe even greate a montage!

I'm in. I also wanna make a jack o'lantern comparison.
See how ugly we can make a pumpkin head with stones for cutting tools .

I guess we're trying to do this before Halloween ??

I'm going to try this. No promises and of course it might actually have to stop raining for a day to do it. But it sounds great.

It's finally getting cold over here but hopefully it'll be warm enough to drag myself out next week and go smash a pumpkin *Insert Billy Corgan joke here*

CA- since pumpkins have seeds they must be fruit so the petv has no jurisdiction on the matter. I hope to see your own video footage of pumpkin carnage!!!

Btw- I donít want there to be a prize. This is just us having fun

And both of those group pale in comparison to Gourds Anonymous. I may have to pull a Sarosh and blur my face if I make a video.

Got my pumpkin! It's not exactly a... large pumpkin but size isn't everything. This is supposed to be a challenge anyway and those huge pumpkins would be far too easy! Cheesy

I'm wondering actually how hard it's going to be to smash it. It's pretty dense and heavy so I'm expecting lots of glancing shots. Hopefully I'll crack through it. I might not be able to film the whole session (I am going to miss A LOT) but I'll be sure to count all my shots so I can say how long it takes me to get a good hit.

why not have a prize ?

I'll put up a 60x30 glande mould, including postage (could take a while I've just discovered you can still send stuff overland Smiley

Most spectacular pumpkin smash wins.
Not most hits or furthest distance - but biggest hit.
I want to see blood and brains exploding out the back of the skull !
That is: seeds and pul and rind, from the back of the pumpkin Smiley

My advice: Use big rocks Thumbs Up

Rules:
Video must show you and the pumpkin or be videoed from where you stand. †
Standing 2 feet from the pumpkin won't count. At least 10 metres from the pumpkin is required.
If you can have a second camera behind the pumpkin - that would work in your favour Smiley

Jaegoor is not eligible for the prize. I mean, come on he's just too good at this kind of thing Wink

Ooooo interesting. Let's see what I can do with this small pumpkin. Hopefully I an get something spectacular Cheesy I might be able to use my girlfriend's camera so will be able to film for longer and I can use a tripod so I won't need her standing around in a field getting cold. I'm just praying now it won't rain tomorrow.
