 Can a team enter multiple pumpkin launchers into the contest? Also what is meant in rule 5, by "losing a pumpkin after launch", would it be like if the pumpkin is launched so far that it can't be retrieved?

I will be posting these up on the website but I'm waiting to get an official time scheduled with the Science Factory so I can publish everything at once.  These are mostly the same as before but I've clarified the pumpkin size.  You may use any pumpkin between 1lbs and 2lbs.
