Washington Township man’s punkin’ chunkin’ lands on Discovery Channel Thanksgiving special

While most of us are digging into pumpkin pie Thursday, Jim Fuller of Washington Township will be hoping to avoid it. (In punkin’ chunkin’ terms, pumpkin pie means that the gourd blew apart and the throw is disqualified.) Read all about Fuller’s quest for gourd glory.
The Discovery Channel followed Fuller, aka “Fat Jimmy,” and his buddy Bill Gress to Delaware’s World Championship Punkin’ Chunkin’ Nov. 4 to 6. The special airs at 8 p.m. Thursday on the Discovery Channel and Science Channel. Check out a video of the Nov. 20 pumpkin toss at Spring Grove Area High School. Fuller’s Team Destrier won the competition with a 1,000 foot throw.
