As part of my New Year’s resolutions for 2010, I promised myself that I’d enter a watermelon seed spitting contest this year and I intend to keep that promise, even if means hosting a neighborhood contest in my backyard this summer (though I’d prefer to enter a more formal contest).
I’ve scoured the internet for seed spitting contests in my area (south central Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Maryland) and have found nothing too promising. I’ve found contests that used to be held in my neck of the woods, but no evidence that they still are. Oh well, the search continues. In the meantime, I’ll study the video below in which seed spitters discuss their techniques.
