PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire (CNN) -- A fruitcake toss in this cozy New England town was downright nutty, as contestants catapulted the much-maligned holiday treat into the air.(519K/13 sec. QuickTime movie)
The fruitcake fling, sponsored by a Portsmouth radio station, was judged in three categories: distance, accuracy and grace.
The winning cake sailed 52 feet, 2 inches. Participants launched the fruity holiday delight using a catapult specially built for the event.
