I'd never seen the show before; it was revealed yesterday that the 
"American" guy is really a Canuck.

I know a pumpkin chucker when I see one, and so when I say artillery 
cannon, I mean artillery cannon. The teams built black powder cannons. One 
had about a 2.5" diameter, the other one was about 4.5" (it won, despite 
probably being the less robust cannon). They had a pro do the wiring and 
they all sat in a bunker when they shot them off.

It was cool.

Also built yesterday: monster trucks.
