Floating Arm Trebuchet I built with my son

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!
