WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE 13th Annual Pumpkin Chuck! Entrance at the Spinning Road gate on Airway.
Pumpkin Chuck Dayton: Flying Pumpkins / Food Trucks / STEM Activities / Bounce House / Music
This is the 14th Annual CFC Pumpkin Chuck, an event that repeatedly brings in hundreds of people and thousands of dollars towards the Combined Federal Campaign. Sponsored by AFLCMC/EN-EZ, this event has traditionally been catered to the military and government employee community located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. However, the event is now open to the public; a move that increased involvement and provided the Dayton area a chance to experience an activity that is quickly growing in popularity throughout the country.
This year’s chuck will take place on November 2, 2018 at the airstrip adjacent to the National Museum of the United States Air Force. (Use the entrance at the Spinning Road gate on Airway – 5901 Airway Road, Riverside OH 45431?). Activities will include chucker demonstrations and competitions, a pumpkin pie baking contest, and a pumpkin cream pie speed eating challenge. Concessions will be provided by several local food trucks!
The CFC Pumpkin Chuck has proven to be an exciting event that gives teams and spectators a chance to observe some of the brightest minds in the area as they attempt to demonstrate the most effective way to make a pumpkin fly.
