[EMS Discuss] pumpkin chunkin?

I do have a 12' lever arm made from a papered 2x6  - if it would be useful it is fair game.  Used this as a class project to do field goals during halftime.  Never got it to do more than point after attempts.  Pillow blocks might solve issue.  It might just have to much mass as a lever arm.

We could do the event close to Thanksgiving which would give us a month to design/build/plan/etc.  I'm curious if people would actually sign up for this or what.  It might be a good way to get more exposure and to get people working together in the shop.  I have no idea where we would actually do the event though.  Somewhere we can safely launch small baseball sized pumpkins.
