The National Avocado Launching Championship is exactly what it sounds like: a national avocado launching championship.

Teams of three will compete to score the most points by launching avocados at targets using slingshots, water balloon launchers, resistance bands, bulging muscles — basically, any launcher that is human-powered. No air guns, potato guns, flames, laser beams, or booster rockets.
