I had to be quick. I've had precious few days off and even fewer where the weather hasn't been utterly dismal. I was lucky to get it done yesterday as today is grey, raining and misty as hell. Even so, every now and then when I missed there would be a splash as the rocks hit one of the many puddles.

Yeah it took some throws to get back into it; been a little while since I last used it, but, once I was warmed up, I was getting pretty consistent. I really love that thing.

Nice Kick! You are getting really good with that staff sling.

Also, I'm going put the links to all the entry videos in the first post so they are consolidated and can be found easily.

I hope everybody isn't waiting to the last minute, because I've got a serious contender coming soon!  My 5yo son just finished the design that we plan to carve into the pumpkin before I start slinging, but don't worry... my schtick isn't just going to be me slinging at a carved pumpkin instead of an uncarved one.  I have a few real surprises in store Grin

It's raining, so I'm going to wait a day or two to carve and smash the pumpkin when the weather clears up a little bit.

I honestly hadn't considered taking the time to carve it before smashing it up... good idea! I won't steal it, but good idea nonetheless. I'm looking forward to the video.

I got my pumpkin, but I need a workday that is light so I can leave early to film.

I considered carving mine but I wanted to ensure it's structural integrity.

Itís not stealing if I give the idea away. Besides, I am pretty sure Iím not the first person to come up with the idea of carving a pumpkin Smiley

Ha! If we're being scored on structural integrity, then we should just give the prize to Jaegoor and his coconut now! Itís true that carving will weaken the pumpkin, but I decided it would be worth it because one of the criteria is entertainment value... plus my son really wanted to carve it when he saw that I bought a pumpkin.† Grin

Well Iíve talked about it enough and itís time for less talk and more pumpkin destruction...
