Pumpkin Challenge! (Prize included)
Sep 3rd, 2020 at 11:17pm
 
It is that time of year, Time for the Pumpkin Challenge!

The winner of the challenge will get a portable slinging target from DangerGoods.com (Disclaimer: this prize is put up by yours truly, no sponsorship deals have been made. This is in support of slinging businesses and bringing slinging to a wider audience)
https://www.dangergoods.com/products1/danger-goods-portable-sling-target

The rules are simple, you must:
1. Submit a video of your entry via YouTube and post the link in this thread.
2. The video must contain a pumpkin, a sling, and a slinging aspect.
3. Entries submitted after Halloween (October 31st) will not be considered for the prize but are still welcome.
4. The rest is up to you!

The winner will be determined by a poll for entertainment value, difficulty, and encompassing the spirit of the sling.
Voting for yourself is certainly not discouraged. (As long as you really believe yours is the best...)

Let the challenge commence!

Thanks for getting this started IG, and very generous prize!  I can't wait to see what people come up with Smiley

In fact, I think I'll sweeten the pot and add a participation challenge...  If we can get at least 10 participants this year, I will throw in a randomly selected winner for a Razor Glande facemask:

Edit: I originally said “2nd place prize”, but I think a random selected winner among all participants encourages more entries even if someone doesn’t think they can win Smiley

As a little bit of additional data perhaps we could all take a photo of our chosen victim (pumpkin) and maybe weight and size dimensions. Just for future pumpkin challenges.

Also might be an idea to move this challenge to general slinging section, not sure we gat as much traffic in this section??

Good luck everyone!!

Cool man!  There's no specific situation in which someone will win.  Entries just need to have a sling hit on a pumpkin.  Once the deadline is reached we'll add a poll to this thread and slinging.org members will vote for the one they believe is the best.  The listed criteria are 'entertainment value, difficulty, and encompassing the spirit of the sling'.  The voting will be subjective, but it's all about having fun!

In the spirit of friendly competition... I also think it will be fun to crush you all like a pumpkin and win the prize Grin

Now, you didn't say that there couldn't be somebody off camera with a shotgun so that when the slung rock hits the pumpkin it makes a super loud bang and then explodes? Cheesy Cheesy

Entertainment value is one aspect!  But difficulty is also. Choose your poison. Smiley

As long as you’re using firearms, you might as well use a hunting rifle and stuff the pumpkin with tannerite Smiley
Of course then you’ll definitely need to be slinging from afar, so you get the difficulty check mark too!
