Hello Joey & Good Morning Gloucester!
Do you remember the pumpkin cannon & team members in front of Cape Ann Brewing Company during Fiesta?
“American Chunker” actually broke the world record while I watched on Friday afternoon. As the de facto “home team” for Cape Ann — Brian Labrie’s distance of 4,694.68 feet has succeeded in bringing home the Gold… Viva!!! Enjoy the photos!

Visited with you at Capt. Joe’s during Fiesta last summer. I’m so thankful for all you do which allows me to keep current with happenings in Glosta. Big shout out to Tom P. in The Fort & Erik H. in Annisquam!
I’m fortunate to have joined the "Chunkin Up" team, and I brought my GMG sticker to World Championship Punkin Chunkin Competition in Bridgeville, Delaware this past weekend.
Discovery Channel was there in force, so everyone will be able to see what happened later this month — usually around Thanksgiving.
Couldn’t help myself from yelling "Chi Samiou Dute Mute? Viva San Pietro!" a few times, which lead to puzzled looks from team members… and later thinking that a pumpkin cannon built to resemble the Greasy Pole with a crew of costumed Sicilians could be a great idea for a future team? Perhaps that deserves some consideration from Gloucester based Chunker engineers?
All the best, and keep on building the best blog on the planet! We really do appreciate it.

Note to self: Road trip to the Punkin Chunkin Competition in Bridgeville, Delaware next year! That looks like a whole lot of fun!!!!
