Team CFE and their Trebuchet top all competitors at Punkin’ Dunkin 2014!

CFE students and alumni hurled pumpkins into 1st place at Punkin’ Dunkin 2014 on Saturday!  With a best throw of 213 feet, Overkill, the team’s trebuchet, beat 5 other entries to capture the win.

Pumpkin Palooza visitors lined up for hours to toss pumpkins of all sizes into the waters of Lake Rooty.

Great fun was had by all that came out!
