Michele Wright, Punkin’ Chunkin’TM committee member, announced some changes to the schedule for next Sunday, Oct. 28.
There will be a lunch stand at the site, and also at the American Legion Club afterwards with the same menu. No chili will be available at 3 p.m.
There will not be a pie eating contest like in last year’s schedule.
There will be outhouse races interspersed throughout the day, a kids’ obstacle course and new this year will be a Halloween costume contest drawing to win a prize.
The event depends on field conditions, rather than the weather. If the field is muddy, shooters can’t drive in the field.
The committee is asking all community club members to bring individually wrapped bars to the site on Sunday, Oct. 28 any time after 10 a.m. to be served at the lunch stand.
It also takes a lot of help to pull off an event of this size. Help is needed for parking, food, set up and take down. You do not need to be a community club member to volunteer.
