Punkin Chunkin’ 2015

The Saturday of Family Weekend dawned bright and cold as four teams prepared their launchers.  That’s right, it was time to chuck some pumpkins! Chi Phi, Sig Ep, ASME, and team BDK had each toiled over their pumpkin chucking device, and the time had come for trial by vegetable.

The four teams each had 6 pumpkins to hurl as far as they could, fueled on by the chilly but excited crowd of spectators.

-Sig Ep in 4th place with 7 feet 3 inches
-Team BDK in 3rd place with 119 feet 6 inches
-ASME in 2nd place with 120 feet 6 inches
And the winner, with a throw of 138 feet 11 inches….
