Tamping a pumpkin down the chute Saturday at Estancia’s annual Punkin Chunkin. Hosted by the Estancia Rotary Club, the event is a fundraiser for its scholarship program. The largest devices launch pumpkins so fast that most people in the audience were unable to see them—some as far as half a mile. Photo by Leota Harriman.
