The university’s Giant Pumpkin Regatta took place on Saturday, Oct. 10 at the Memorial Union Terrace. The event featured students racing hollowed-out Atlantic Giant pumpkins rendered buoyant by tractor-tire inner tubes through a course set up by members of UW’s Hoofer Sailing Club. During the growing season, the massive pumpkins were tended by UW students, including Chris D’Angelo and Lynn Maher, graduate students in the lab of Irwin Goldman, professor and chair of horticulture.
