Countdown: 38 Days 'till 2nd VTPC Festival

Pumpkin light, Pumpkin bright, soon the Pumpkins will take flight.

October 3rd will soon be here.

Time for everyone to start getting their brain cells focused on the important things in life. Like seeing how far you can hurl a pumpkin.

We know that American Chunker has been hard at work. Their latest video is a tour de force.
