1,169-Pound Pumpkin Drop

Utah’s largest pumpkin for the year, weighing in at 1,169 pounds, was dropped on an old Pontiac after being hefted up by a 175-foot crane:

The pumpkin was grown by Matt McConkie from Mountain Green and it is calculated that the descent of the giant pumpkin reached a top speed of 67.1mph for 3.1 seconds before meeting its end.

And just like that Halloween 09 is gone…

Despite some crappy windy wet weather leading up to the party Saturday cleared off for another wonderful Halloween evening. Special thanks to Tom Davis, Andy Nick, Rick Smith and everyone else who always helps to make these parties so special. Enjoy the photos—if anyone has any to add please send them to me via: circa71@gmail.com I’d love to add them to the slideshow below.

Halloweens’ past

2008—A wonderful Indian Summer night to celebrate Halloween08, a kicking fire and 80 or so of my best friends in their over-the-top costumes. Thanks to all who were on hand and those who were here in spirit only! It’s never more obvious how lucky I am to have such a wonderful group of people to call my friends. Enjoy the photos—if anyone has any to add please send them to me via circa71@gmail.com I’d love to add them to the slideshow below. Until next year…

Halloween on Gondert 2008

Between the gothic stones above the graves and curdling groans. Gargoyles peer from old stone walls, the clock strikes twelve. Midnight falls. Spirits and creatures rise from hell brought back this night by an old church bell. Hideous faces, rattling chains, this is a place where Halloween reigns. Flapping wings of flying bats and the prying eyes of old black cats. The witching hour has come to call reviving the dead, one and all. The November wind sheiks loud and clear while shapes in flowing shrouds appear. So those of you who would bravely dare to meet All Hollow’s evil stare. Know the warning and heed the power be at Gondert by the witching hour.

2008—Halloween is on us once again. Get out your thinking caps and craft supplies and start working on that costume! Every year has been bigger and better than the previous year and this year should be no exception. I’ve met so many new people through the DCS—it will be exciting to see how big a crowd and the different costumes we’ll have on-hand, this year. Hope to see you all then.
