Postby madmattd » Sun Apr 29, 2018 12:40 pm

Year 4 of attempting to catalog a listing of the various hurling events (not limited to pumpkin-throwing, though that does seem to be the vast majority) that are occurring and open to the public to enter. As you hear of other ones with confirmed dates, and preferably a website link too, let me know and I'll add them here to make them easy to find! Please let me know of any that I've missed!

It looks like the old Farmington event Siege the Day is being resurrected under different sponsorship. Similar rules but they're banning FATs (but not any other advanced designs). October 17, in Farmington, NM. McGee Park, not the vacant lot next to the museum. Rules look the same.

Do you have a website link for that event Thomas? I don't seem to have a link as it hasn't been held in several years?

Hmm, looks like they killed the link. It was up a week or so ago. I e-mailed them then but didn't get an answer. Guess we can write them off.

The Discovery Science Center event hosted by Cal State Fullerton is normally the first Saturday in November. It's been around for 10 years, nearly an institution in "The OC". We just don't get confirmation until a couple of months before.

Thanks Thomas. I finally remembered to add this to the list, with a note that folks should reference your comment above.

I need to dig through the old listings again to see who's updated. I've been busy lately, but keep letting me know on anything you hear about that I haven't listed yet!
