The Pumpkin Fling, held at the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center in Yaphank, NY is Long Island's annual championship pumpkin catapult contest -- and a unique opportunity for students and adults to experience the joys and trials of designing, building and operating sophisticated mechanical devices.  Teams in our Youth and Adult divisions build a catapult or other propulsion device to fling a 3-5 pound pumpkin into an open field.  Whichever team chucks the farthest wins!  Other awards include; Audience Favorite, Precision, and more.
