Double post but with a major update.

Psycix and I went to the Chunkin event in Bikschote Belgium.
We were allowed to shoot some apples and spuds in full view of the 7000 spectators...in the centre of the field!!

YEAHHH!!!

I used relatively low pressure because the organiser was a bit weiry of the concept...

But all was fine and he granted us our own division next year...so basically a spudmeet with an audience!!
He would like us to come with bigger and more powerful cannons and hopes we'll bring some buddies to compete against!!

Wonderful!
vid is here:

I had a great conversation with the American team Onager, the 2009 world champions in their catagory..(who got beaten by the Belgians who got 726.4 meters with a katapult btw)

I showed them my aircannon wich they loved, I told them about me being a mod here..guess what? They know Spudfiles!.. :D
This guy asked me if I knew about guns...I said :"some.."
He told me his brother has one of the first lever action pistols ever made...
So I said:..Oh the Smith and Wesson Vulcanic with the cartridgeless ammo?
He was stunned.... :D

Yeah I know a little something about 'em... :wink:
It was nice meeting fellow vegtable-chunkers...
Who knew Americans could bring a " weapon" to another country and NOt start a war?
:wink:
Just teasing
...they were great!

It took them 4 weeks to get the Katapult across the pond...
It took me about 2 hours to get there..

Right now it doesn't get any better than this.
All legal and with a crowd!


I too would like to fire some smallbore designs at tv's of old fridges...with fellow spudders...but " this is not America" my friend.

We must grab opportunity by the youknowwhat and jank it as hard as we can.

Edited:
I'm currently contacting the media in my country.Chunkin made the prime time news!

Vid here: ( wait for the commercial to end first!)
http://www.rtl.nl/components/actueel/rt ... belgie.xml

One mayor tv-station has said they are interested and I should e-mail them about my contribution to next years event.

If things get rolling I might get some sponsors to build a BIG cannon and ...well...we'll see where it goes from there...

Yeah it was awesome! But I'm even more excited about next year.
There's a big gun in my head right now... :D

There's nothing better than shooting stuff over a field with a whole crowd behind you going "Ooah!"
The gun will be big next year. Oh yes it will be BIG.


It has to be.

Because its awesome.
