The Pumpkins

Every fall in Delaware some maniacs have this competition where they use huge catapults, trebuchets and pneumatic canons to fire pumpkins thousands of feet. The team that throws an intact pumpkin the furthest wins. These devices are HUGE and cost the teams tens of thousands of dollars. The furthest throw last year was almost a mile. Holy crap, some dude shot a pumpkin out of a canon almost a mile! I'd like to go and check this out one year, it looks like fun.
