2017 Chunkin' Events

Postby madmattd » Sat Mar 11, 2017 9:35 pm

For the last 2 years I have endeavored 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!

Share away! That's the best I can do is posting it a bunch. The WCPCA knows about this list too (Mark, Frank, etc).
