If there is a Donkey Kong carved into a pumpkin I call no fair for Captains hint...

And if there is a cow in one, that doesn't mean it's mine.

I can carve the turkey and fish, but a pumpkin is another story. I can envision the winner pumkin, however when its all said and done I will still end up with three triangles and a mouth of missing teeth.



Now that I set the expectation low I should be a shoe in to win. :mrgreen:


Just kidding, I still cant draw worth a crappie.
Good luck.

Does the TB have to be carved in the pumpkin or can it be just written on some paper in the picture?

The rules just say Tin Boats needs to be in the picture. Hopefully written on a card is acceptable.
