Greetings fellow FROG-ers!
We are planning on attending the 2016 Punkin Chunkin World Championship
in Bridgeville, DE this November. Would like to possibly get some fellow FROG members together to meet up for a fun family weekend.
For those who might have not seen nor heard of Punkin Chunkin, it is a gathering of various machines (Trebuchets, Catapults, Torsions & Air Cannons ) that have been designed and built for the specific purpose of hurling pumpkins... FAR! The air cannons are closing in on the 5,000' mark!!
This event was canceled last year due to lack of insurance, but has returned for 2016. This event has been covered by the Discovery and Science Channel and has been featured on a bunch of other cable outlets. While there is boondock camping on site, we have decided to stay at Trap Pond State Park (about a 20min drive from the event). W/E - 50A sites are $20 and there are many available at this time. Event tickets will go on sale August 1st, 2016.
Event is about 3:30 hrs from NYC.... 2:00 hrs from Philly.... 1:45 from Baltimore...

Depending on interest, we can plan some potluck breakfast or dinner... or make arrangements to head out for a meal somewhere local.
