The Pumpkin Carving Contest here at ExtremePumpkins.com is a great way for you to participate. After you carve your pumpkin this year, just send me a photo of it through this website. I'll enter you in the contest. If I choose your pumpkin next October (usually I pick the winners during the first week of October), I'll send you some type of prize. Usually it is a great prize made up of crazy stuff from my company.
When I am not carving pumpkins, I run a bulletproof vest company. BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests are the value leader in body armor. We are very popular with people like armored car operators and ATM repairmen.
