You'll actually see a mix at those events. The cannons do win overall but the trebuchets put in a respectable performance.

Wait, VERMONT?  The fark?  Punkin Chunkin is a Delaware thing.  Like it's the only thing Delaware has.  Dammit Vermont, let Delaware have SOMETHING other than super lax corporate laws.
