Pumpkin Shoot A Smashing Success

What were once pumpkins are now a lot of squash, so to speak.
The 10th Great Pumpkin Shoot was a smashing success over the weekend.
About 225 people came out Sunday morning to see 50 teams launch pumpkins into the air with slingshots.
This year was the biggest ever.
The prize money was $4,200, and there were three more targets to hit.
Every prize target was worth between $75 and $200 and the grand prize was a 65-inch TV
won by a three person team named Moma’s Family.
A new entrance to Franchot (fran-choh) Park is coming your way soon.
The Cattaraugus County Land Bank will transfer property for a new entrance into the park.
The land used to be home to blighted properties that have been torn down.
Plans include an archway like the one in Lincoln Park, as well as a parking lot
The cost will be about $40,000.
