Fun is always the main point anyway. The only reason I got mine done so quickly was because I had to. Can't trust the weather this time of year so I just went for it. That was really the main reason for not carving it, I didn't have the time Cheesy

Awesome hit Jaegoor!
Two broken pumpkins so far.  I'm getting concerned that I will not.  Cheesy

I got mine.  Hopefully this weekend I'll get some time to throw at it.

Another teaser for y’all. Smashing complete. It may take a little longer to finish and post the video.

Jaegoor, great job, as usual. I love that it was a hit in the dead center.

Nice!  If there was a category for 'most intricate setup', you'd have that with 100% certainty!  Cheesy

Well I was fresh out of grand pianos, but I did have a pile of bricks handy.  When you can barely squeeze a 10-yard shooting range out of your backyard, you have to focus on the "entertainment" aspect to stay competitive Smiley

My 5yo was certainly entertained by the whole process!  He designed the face on the pumpkin and provided some excellent color commentary in the background. No matter who wins, my son and I had a ton of fun with this one.  There's just something deeply satisfying about pulverizing a pumpkin with a pile of bricks Grin

Haha. I was chuckling the whole time. I truly enjoyed the ending. It's much more satisfying when it is destroyed in one fell swoop.

Haven't awarded a gold star for some time - But damn NOC - That was absolutely AMAZING !

You got my vote Smiley

And of course, the rare and widely coveted Curious Aardvark Gold Star Award for services over and above to the cause of slinging Smiley

***


Well this is completely unprecedented !!!

TWO gold star awards in a single thread !

The world's gone mad Smiley

But kick, for the very first serious and extremely accurate use of a staff sling in slinging.org history - Have a gold star !

All i got to say is: pumpkins be double tough !
That was some big rocks coming in at decent velocity. 

No jaegoor is not getting one. lol
I mean: jaegoor hits target - it's not exactly news is it Smiley

So guys - is it possible. can you turn this into a triple star award thread ?
Have at it !

Crazy to me that we have run basically the same thing the past 2 years in the “online challenge” thread but just a little bit more effort in making a specific thread for the 2020 Halloween pumpkin challenge has really picked up interest. Also the editing skills of everyone so far has been great. It’s really raising the bar!!!

Still no orange pumpkins in stores here yet but I’ll be getting one as soon as they arrive!!
