In November 2006 I traveled with my son to watch the World Champion Punkin Chunkin Contest in Delaware. It was a truly awesome event and someday I'd like to compete.
In December 2006 my father in-law gave me a Floating Arm Trebuchet kit that my son and I built together. The video clip below shows the trebuchet in action. It will launch a golf ball 100 yards with just 10 pounds of counter weight!
