Enter the Pumpkin Chunkin' Contest
The rules are simple:
You will be throwing an approximately 2.5 pound wooden pumpkin.
You can call or text 519-503-7843 to get a couple of practice “pumpkins”.
Your trebuchet must by entirely powered by gravity (a falling weight).
Hint: for best results use a weight that is 100 to 140 times the weight of the object you intend to throw.
Your trebuchet should be constructed with safety in mind (for yourself and spectators).
You will have the baseball net as a backstop.
You will have a maximum of 30 minutes to set up your trebuchet, fire 3 shots and disassemble it.
