Yes, the 2017 World Championships of Punkin Chunkin is still happening, on November 3-5 at the same Bridgeville, DE field it has been held on since 2007! Many know that there was an accident with an air cannon near the end of the 2016 event, but despite that the event is moving forward with additional safety precautions. However, Science Channel has pulled their sponsorship, which has left the Association short on funds. The event will still happen in 2017, but its future is in jeopardy without additional sponsors. If you know of a company or individual willing to donate to keep the event going, direct them to the WCPCA Sponsorship Page. Any and all donations are welcome, so feel free to donate yourself at the same link so the Association can continue to give back to the community. The Association is a 501c3 charity, and as such all money raised in excess of the cost of putting the event on is given back to a variety of charitable causes.
