the greatest pumpkin chucker comes from Bergen County

Punkin Chunkin is a contest where people design trebuchets and catapults to launch pumpkins 250-400 MPH more then half a mile. The competitions is fierce but fun and drives people to outdesign the next guy. The designers typically come from rural areas because to test the design you have to be able to launch it a half mile and not hit anybody or anything. Surprisingly the world champ pumpkin chucker comes from one of the most densely populated counties of the most densely populated state in the country.

Team chucky trains at a farm in Hunterdon County.

If I can, I’m going to try to get to see Chucky up close.
