Moab’s Youth Garden Project, a nonprofit organization that serves the city’s children, is kicking off their Ninth Annual Pumpkin Chuckin Festival on the Oct. 25.
Kristin Thomas, the program manager for the project, said there are various categories for competitors to enter. One contestant from Lindon has people especially excited.
“The slingshot from Lindon, UT is going to be 10,000 pounds," Thomas said. "It’s a big machine. Supposedly they can shoot it up to 500 feet, potentially farther."
The team Thomas is referring to calls themselves the Smashing Heads but in actuality they are the employees of Universal Industrial Sales, Inc.
