'This is for everybody who forgot his catapult today,' said Nick Hopkins, 27, of West Ocean City, Md. Hopkins was manning a booth at the 23rd annual Punkin Chunkin, held Saturday in a field east of Bridgeville. Competitors visiting the booth were invited to try their luck in pitching a pumpkin into a metal bin. Most pumpkins landed on the ground. Related photos on pages 12 and 19.
