Event Details

Can you hit the Great Pumpkin target from up to 100 yards away (High School division: 70 yards) using a gravity powered trebuchet (treb-yoo-shet) firing 5 to 16 pound pumpkins? Come to Sam Peden Community Park in New Albany on October 8th and we’ll see.

You’ll be one of up to 36 total teams (12 middle school + 12 high school + 12 adult teams) competing for award plaques. Each team gets 3 attempts using supplied pumpkins. All machines must use gravity (falling weights) as their only source of power, pass the usual safety and functionality checks, and be ready for competition at their start times. Awards for accuracy, originality, and efficiency will be presented at 7:00 pm. Youth teams will receive up to $400 worth of fabrication material FREE!

Plus, free pumpkin painting for the kids!
