I thoroughly enjoyed that joe, as always with your videos.
I also really liked that the pumpkin ran away, from the stones, I know it wasnt planned but it definitely added to the entertainment. As always video quality is top notch.
This challenge has provided the goods and I must say Im still waiting on the pumpkins to arrive in my store and I hope they hurry up because between the skills shown in both editing and the slinging itself Im already getting target panic. I hope the weather gods give me the best chance at making the video.

So far Im really struggling with choosing a winner and think everyone is deserving of a prize so far.

I hope we continue this enthusiasm for the years to come and for other challenges such as the Easter egg challenge.

Great stuff everyone your all absolute legends!!!

This is going to be really hard to pick. I definitely should have waited a bit before jumping straight into it. I for sure underestimated the competition Cheesy

well I think the only thing left to say for Joe's video is this:


Excellent and accurate slinging with all ammo.

Looks like about 10 metres - decent distance for a small targer Smiley

And it really illustrates how difficult it is to throw with both power and accuracy.

Thanks all! This was definitely a fun one to do.

@IG - Yeah, I'm on a bit of a hill. You can see the general angle during the stones. I put bricks under the target so the pumpkin is level, but the backstop just follows the ground. It's actually not too bad when you're standing on it. I think I've also just gotten used to it.

In the glass is The Great Pumpkin from Elysian Brewing. Very tasty!

I think most of the stones I had were around 300 g. Which is about triple the weight of the ice and pykrete, so that was a big adjustment. They were the ones I used for the nail challenge.

@NOC - I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. Slinging videos...great entertainment for the whole family! Cheesy

@Kick - I'm looking forward to joining Team Finnlandia in Mallorca one day! With all the craziness going on now, maybe 2022 is a more realistic hope than next year.

@Mersa - Don't worry man, we're going to wait for you! Looking forward to your submission.

@CA - It's much heavier that what I normally listen to, but I like that song!

I also should have mentioned the distance. I was at about 50 feet. So closer to 15 m. That's pretty much my normal when target slinging. Unless it's something ridiculous like a nail. Smiley

lol the interesting thing about the brothers of metal songs is that they really delve deep into the norse myths and gods.

Until that song, I had no idea that there was a goat in valhalla that produced an endless tream of mead from it's teats.

And i really love the way ylva pronounces Ragnarok.
I just can't get that 'ruuoockk' sound at the end.

yeah - next year is supposed to be the 500th anniversary of spain invading guam and crushing the native culture.
And no I'm not quite sure why they're celebrating - I think they just like beach parties Smiley

It's march - but if there are still no reliable vaccines - there's no way I'm spending 24 hours on a succession of enclosed metal boxes with recycled atmosphere and a bunch of infected strangers.

As far as the international in mallorca goes - no clue.
At the moment I've lost track of where you do and don't need to be quarantined for 14 days - going and/or returning.

But again there's the whole aeroplane issue.

I'm supposedly in a vulnerable group and so's my mum.
So risks i do not take.

I had to travel through 4 airports within two weeks for the last one. Do that again with corona about? No, thank you. I work with old, already ill people and, if they get it, it will kill them. All of them. No if's or but's. It sucks because last year was just fantastic and I have never been in more need of a holiday than now.

The race is on to see who's first to get a drone and have an aerial view. Cheesy
