Punkin' Chunkin' Contest

This ain't the real thing, but the gods of the throw found their humble beginnings in mini Morton, IL. That's right, Matt Parker, Chuck Heerde, and the rest of the Aludium Q36 Pumpkin Modulator team are local heroes after landing in the Guinness Book of World Records for their 4,491-foot throw. Although big wigs, the Q36 crew that hails from Morton hasn't forgotten their humble roots. Every October you can catch them here warming up for the World Championships.
