Last week, it was announced that the World Championships of Punkin' Chunkin' (WCPC) will be returning in 2016 to the Wheatley Farm in Bridgeville, DE, site of the event from 2007-2013. The insurance issues that necessitated moving the event from the farm field have apparently been resolved such that we chunkers (and fans!) are welcome on the property again, as the landowner and his insurance company are now satisfied of adequate landowner protection. It should be pointed out that the Wheatleys themselves are Punkin Chunkers (United Flingdom III), and did not want to ask the event to leave, but situations were such with the on-going 2013 lawsuit from the 2012 incident that they needed to do what they did. We are thrilled that they will have us back, and are looking forward to chunking again in 2016! More information can be read in the official press release and in the Sussex County Post. Team Urban Siege looks forward to returning to Delaware to chunk punkins with all our friends from November 4-6!
Note: the aformentioned lawsuit was also settled out of court in 2015.
