Team American Chunker set a new world record with a monster 4,694.68-foot shot at the 28th annual WCPCA world championship last weekend in Bridgeville Delaware.
It was a spectacular event with near record crowds, great weather, and 115 dedicated teams competing for the coveted prize. When the dust settled, American Chunker was crowned World Champion in our fourth season competing. The entire team and cannon performed flawlessly. Hats off to all the teams competing…you drove us to work harder than ever and pushed us to the limits. Special congrats also to New Hampshire based Team Yankee Siege II for their world record trebuchet shot of 2835.81 feet.
Special thanks to John Huber, the entire WCPCA staff, and the countless volunteers for all you guys and gals do, as well as terrfic farm owner and host Jeff Wheatly. There wouldn’t be an event without you all! Thanks also to our tremendous sponsors (FLIR, D.R. Guilbeault, Ring Power Cat, Bingham Lumber, and Cape Ann Brewery), as well as our awesome Punkin growers. Most importantly we would like to thank all of our fans. Your loyalty and support have been overwhelming all year long!
Count on Team AC to continue with our signature determination and hard work in 2014 to attempt to retain the title next year. We are firmly committed to humbly do our best possible job to represent the outstanding sport of Punkin Chunkin!
