This event is returning after last being held in 2018, and is put on in part by the folks behind the World Champion Trebuchet Colossal Thunder. As the WCPCA (the Delaware group from years past) has yet to find a new location for their traditional event, the WCPCA has leased the name World Championships of Punkin Chunkin for 2023 to this event - you will see it advertised under both names.

We will have the Stapleton's showing off their Stapleton "Walking Arm Trebuchet," which they have perfected at our festival over the last several years. They have come to dominate our competition with their simple and elegant design. We're very proud to have helped motivate this creativity. Jonathan Stapleton did an excellent write-up on his new design for trebuchets and posted it on Instructables.com here:

We also just posted another video of the their "Walking Arm Trebuchet" in action on our Facebook page:


At the Festival we also live music, a People's Choice Chili Cook-off contest, and other activities.

We got a nice shout out from USA Today who voted us the Best Fall Festival in the US. Thanks to all our fans, friends and supporters, who voted us up.

Our blog has all the details on what's going on, check it out:

I thought people might be interested in a trebuchet design that I invented three years ago. Last year, my 8 year old son used it to set the all time record at the Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin' Festival. I won, too, in the heavyweight division. My son threw a 3 ounce ball 266 feet with his 20 pound, 41" tall trebuchet, and his scaled up score amounted to more than their estimate of mine. They never found my pumpkin. It was so high over the spotter that he never saw it fly into the woods.

My son and I just made an instructable showing how to build the trebuchet. Here's the link if you're interested...

This is a video of one of my first tests of a 500 pound, 10 foot tall design. The counterweight is 450 pounds, and the rest adds up to a little less than 50. The projectile here is a soccer ball with rice and foam inside.


This is my first post, so I apologize in advance if these links didn't work the way I thought they would.

Cheers,
Jonathan
