    If you're in flying/driving distance of Jackson MS, come on down to our 11th annual Slobovia Outernational Pumpkin Drop on Nov 3. Cajun food at noon, and pumpkin bombing starts at around 1:30. Bring your appetite and your ordinance.

    Would they allow me to participate?

    I do not have a passport from Slobovia, but whenever I fly someone says "oh look, there's a slob over ya!"

    Come on down! If you bring your own ordinance, attend the briefing, and are willing to follow the directions of the air boss, you're welcome to participate.

    Multiple Youtube videos from past events; just search for 'Slobovia Pumpkin Drop'.

    We never know what will show up; one year we had a P-51 & Corsair attend, and do formation passes. Another year we had a C-47 (D Day a/c, IIRC) come and give rides.

    Thanks for sharing that link. I've told people about it for years, but somehow lost track of how to view it.
