2007 Pumpkin Contest

Just like all families RCGroups.com has traditions. The pumpkin contest is one of my favorites.

It's pumpkin-carving time! Carve a pumpkin and post the photo here or video. The top pumpkins will be selected by our staff of expert pumpkin judges.

In years past RCGers have carved RC related pumpkins. Some did the RCG logo, others did airplanes, etc. Be creative, have fun and let us see them when you are done!

The top 3 pumpkins will recieve a goody bag in the mail from RCGroups.com.

Here are some of the best from past contests...

I want to see somebody mount heli gear INSIDE a pumpkin and fly the pumpkin, not drag it around (assuming the latter is what he did).

here's one from Oz

Long time reader, first post.

I had just transferred these pics from my camera and thought what better way to get started here.

Australia isn't so big on Halloween - it gets a bit more interest each year. A bunch of friends get together each year and have a party - here is one of the 6 pumpkins we carved this year (this one is my design/carve!)

Anyway, Hi everyone!
