pumpkin drop!

Tomorrow is the annual Pumpkin Drop at the glider field! A pilot and a bombadier go up in a two-seat glider. The bombadier sits in the back with a pumpkin, and tosses it out the window at the right moment to hit the target on the runway. (Yes, this is legal.) Then the pilot circles back around for a spot landing contest.

I managed to miss this event last year. Apparently it's a ton of fun. I picked up a couple of pumpkins at the store today. Who's in? I'll fly, you drop.
