In less than 48 hours we hope to be down at the 2012 World Championships of Punkin Chunkin in Bridgeville, DE. This year, mother nature is trying to throw a massive wrench in the works in the form of Hurricane Sandy, which is at this moment battering the mid-Atlantic. Delaware took a near-direct hit, and much of Sussex County, location of the chunk, was evacuated. While the wind and rain is expected to end sometime late tomorrow, what is unknown is exactly what the impact this storm will have on the chunk. We hope we can get on the field late Wednesday, but things are bound to be extremely muddy, with nearly 8 inches of rain having fallen there since Sunday. The good news: starting Wednesday, there is a nice pattern of weather forecast, extending beyond the chunk weekend into next week. Hopefully the field will dry out some in the days before the chunk (which starts on Friday).
NASAW is as ready as it will be to try and take the title in the Adult Trebuchet Division this year. We are expecting stiff competition from Yankee Siege, a brand-new Pumpkin Hammer, and likely a few other teams that will try to join in the fray. Who will emerge victorious is anyone's guess. While updates to this site have been non-existent in the last year, we will be doing our best to provide daily updates from the chunk as in previous years. Stay tuned for more!
