John Morris of Grand Isle, Vermont, was the Grand Champion of the Candor Fall Festival Pumpkin Challenge. Sue Mercer won the Women’s Division. The weekend was chilly and breezy but a stalwart group of atlatlists participated in two days of local contests and ISACs. Thanks to everyone who came and participated. A special thanks to Bette Morris, Doug Bassett, Sue Mercer, and Scott Van Arsdale for their help.
