    Lets start throwing things!


    Well I have been thinking about building a trebuchet for awhile. So as I was looking for information I came across this web site game. Check it out, it's fun for wasting some time during the salt & sand season.

    trebuchet challenge!

    Re: Lets start throwing things!

    Remind me this summer and I'll try to get you some info on a cool pumpkin fling contest in Henniker. There's a couple guys that have these around town. They chuck pumpkins out of them in the fall at a small landing strip. Pretty impressive how far one of these can toss a huge pumpkin!

    I'm not into building one, but I'd love to see it in action! There's usually beer involved, so it's right up your alley....

    As part of the Seacoast Rides, I lead a ride that includes a stop in Greenfield where the world champion Pumpkin Chucker sets up and struts his stuff in October. I have been back every year for 3 or 4 years and it never ceases to amaze me!!!

    Cool, I have heard of that but haven't been to it. Let me know when this year and I would like to join the ride.

    I have been thinking about building one that will hurl cans of beer! I am just now starting to think about how to build it but it must fit in the trunk of my VW. I intend to use whatever materials I can get my hands on to build it, but the intent is to build a "modern" version. If I can get a prototype together in time it might make it's debut up at one of the LRRS race weekends.

    Sean keep playing with the parameters. I was able to hit a perfect 650 after about 10 trys.

    Random picture time..

    Yankee Seige about 2 seasons ago when they were building some of the castles and such. I was on my way up to meet a group and hit 17 in VT for the first time.
