Punkin’Chunkin’ canceled for this year

Due to extremely wet fields, Petersburg’s Community Club decided Friday to cancel the Punkin’Chunkin’ event for 2009.

The sixth annual Punkin’Chunkin’ had originally been scheduled for Oct. 25, and had beenĀ postponed to this Sunday, Nov. 1. The decision to cancel the event was made due to as much as 1 1/2 inches of additional rainfall in the area over the past three days.

All participants are invited to plan ahead for Punkin’Chunkin’ in October of 2010, and hope for more favorable weather conditions.
