Kamikaze Launches 4000+ in Punkin Chunkin Colorado 2K17!
DRACO was well-represented at this year’s Punkin Chunkin Colorado, a two-day, nationally-sanctioned pumpkin launching competition held in Aurora, Colorado on October 7-8, 2017. This is an annual event for members of the Phantom Dragons / Pink Phantoms crews, providing an opportunity to gain publicity for DRACO and our breast cancer survivor (BCS) program.
We had a great competition this year. Although we didn’t have quite the distance capability of the two largest air cannons that competed (each of which set a new world record for launch distance, the last an amazing 4,970 feet), we did set a personal record for our launcher of 4,084 feet, earning us a seat in the prestigious 4,000+ Club!
