Scorekeeper's Notes:

As can be expected with an event of this nature, careful scrutiny of the results will reveal a number of statistical and judgmental aberrations due to various factors, not the least of which include: a) loss of recorded information, b) human/observational error, c) rampant disregard of rules, regulations and authority by participants and their minions/fans; d) use and/or abuse of intoxicants, e) menacing of judges and scorekeepers by event participants and/or disgruntled fans, f) the constant and dangerous stream of projectiles, mineral and vegetable, traveling at various trajectories and velocities during the proceedings, g) hazardous seating conditions at and around the judges' scaffolding, nearly resulting in a deadly fall by one judge, h) the wanton display of certain male glandular protuberances by certain members of the event staff, i) courtesy beverages served at higher-than-ideal temperatures, j) the unceasing stream of obscenities directed at and returned by the judging and scorekeeping crew, k) that rat bastard that hit me square in the Stetson with a slab of festering pumpkin, l) that other rat bastard that hurled some ghastly beer-like swill at the judges and splashed my leg, even after I screamed repeatedly not to, m) repeated bawdy references to the male and female genitalia, adolescent innuendoes and ribaldry, fouls smells and foul sights. Etc. I digress.

A brief glance of the results transcribed from the (hopefully) beer-stained records for the "beer run" provides an example of the difficulties encountered:

Silken, ITLC 2:42
Spider-Man, Chunk NYC, 2:17
Sandstorm, Wyld Stallyns, 2:31
Ian, Team Cock and Balls, 2:21
Peter, Dead Babies, 3:57
Lt. Q, Chunk Team Lucky, 2:11
100th, Krunkathaletes, 1:31 (illegal bike?)
1.61, MC3: Team BO, 2:35
797, Last Minute Wonders, 2:37
666, ITLC, 2:22
2, ITLC, 2:09
33 1/3, Mantastic, 1:57
99. ITLC, 2:11

Only one team, the "It Tastes Like Candy" squad from Portland, was ambitious (or coherent) enough to field the four contestants necessary to score points. One contestant may have used a ringer bike. One did not complete his run and found himself in a local infirmary, connected to a morphine drip and sporting new nylon stitching on his thorax.

In another event, one participant ignited a smoke device and filled the air in the competition zone with thick, billowing clouds of orange fog. As a result, no meaningful result could be ascertained and judges were forced to decode a winner from the crowds shaking fists and gnashing teeth.
The irregularities are too numerous to mention. But I humbly offer these results as an earnest, if flawed attempt to document and record what has become perhaps the region's most feared gathering of malcontents, miscreants and degenerates, that annual Hobbesian spasm so dreaded by the townsfolk. The Chunkathalon is dead! Long live Chunkathalon!
