World Championship Punkin Chunkin  
The 25th Annual World Championship Punkin Chunkin is running from November 5th - 7th in Delaware - not far from Rehoboth Beach.

Basically the Punkin Chunkin is a competition whereby competitors use slingshots, catapults, trebuchets, and pneumatic air cannons to launch pumpkins. The goal is to launch pumpkins as far as possible.

A pneumatic air cannon named Young Glory III holds the current world record by firing a pumpkin a record 4483.51 feet (1,351 meters) during the annual 2008 competition in Delaware.

There is also a carnival for spectators with amusement rides, food vendors and pumpkin recipes in a cooking contest, as well as RV parking and camping sites.

How much is it to go to the event? Do any of the sites have full hookups?
