In light of the shooting in Lewiston and the unfolding aftermath, we are cancelling the Pumpkin Chucking event. We plan to try again next year. Prayers for the victims’ families and friends, and our communities.

Note: Pumpkins will range from 6-8 inches in diameter.

I (or my parent/guardian) authorize photographs/video of me to be used for promotional materials by Abbot E-Free Church. I release all rights to compensation, claims, demands, and/or causes of action.

Participation in Pumpkin Chucking activities shall include my participation in any manner whatsoever and in whatever form that may take, whether it be as an attendee, contestant, judge, volunteer, performer, employee, bystander, or any other form of participation, whether it be as an individual or as part of a group, and shall be deemed participation simply by virtue of my presence on the premises during Pumpkin Chucking on November 3, 2023, and any time periods before or after the actual event in which set-up (or other preparation) and break-down/clean-up activities take place.

I fully understand and expressly acknowledge that my participation in Pumpkin Chucking and presence on the premises subjects me to activities that are inherently dangerous activities that can lead to serious bodily injury, including death, and damage or destruction of property, and that unanticipated dangers may arise during such activity. I hereby expressly assume responsibility for and the risk of injury or harm to my person, including illness or death, or injury or destruction of property from these and any other activities on the premises, as well as the risk of injury or harm to other persons and property, whether real or personal, and including Abbot E-Free Church and the Town of Abbot that may be sustained in connection with the stated and associated activities on and about the premises or caused by my actions both during Pumpkin Chucking on November 3, 2019, as well as during any period prior thereto I may be on the premises for set-up, preparation or other purposes and any period thereafter that I may be on the premises for clean-up, post-event or other reasons. I hereby release Abbot E-Free Church and the Town of Abbot from any and all liability for injury, illness, death or property damage to any person whatsoever resulting from any and all activities associated in any manner with the Pumpkin Chucking event, as well as the risks involved in being in the vicinity where such activities may be carried on by individuals other than myself.
