World Championship Cabbage Chuck

category: Contests / Other Contests
29 Jan 2009 17:51

As the name suggests this competition throws cabbages instead of pumpkins. This was done because the town of Shiocton has a sauerkraut factory causing the local farmers to grow a lot more cabbages than pumpkins. The competition hosts all types of hurling machines. In the past they have had about ten to fifteen different trebuchets, broken into medieval and modern categories with prizes being handed out for both, one catapult, and the big feature air cannons. Each year there have been three air cannons at the event all being run by the Peeters Boyz Toyz team. The main cannon has a 60' barrel and shoots cabbages around 1500' and bowling balls 1.5 miles. (They were actually unable to find the bowling ball but a few months later a hunter was walking around the woods and saw it laying there) The competition is broken into two parts. In the morning there is a distance competition and in the afternoon taget shooting. In the target portion they have sponsored targets set up in various locations and you receive $50 per target you hit. Here is a link to a video shot at the event
