This site is for those in Davis who enjoy the wonderful past time of hurling objects for the heck of it. Those interested in hurling things at people in armor running at them might get involved in the Society for Creative Anachronism's siege warfare.

2007-01-14 19:37:20   That is utterly awesome. The closest I can come to that is the water ballon launchers that take 3 people. —StevenDaubert

2007-05-09 15:03:16   Nice. At the kids school there are a couple of catapults using vinyl tubing that the kids shoot those pool sponge balls at each other with.... at a range of about 30 to 40 feet. I'll try to find some photos. —RocksandDirt

2007-05-10 06:41:52   In Mrs. Cook's sixth grade class at Robert E. Willett School we made catapults and launched marshmallows half the class against the other half. My catapult was very small, using less than two feet of 2x4, some other scrap wood, a nylon strap and rubber bands, but it was just as good or better than some of the bigger ones. —NickSchmalenberger

2007-07-10 00:05:58   The next showing of the catapult will be this sunday the 15th —DevinCastellucci

2007-07-10 01:05:18   sweet, better put that on the calendar, slide hill right?—AlexMandel

2009-04-30 14:24:04   This thing really needs to get out and stretch it's legs before the lumber atrophies. I'm currently trying to set something up, hopefully for the 2nd or the 16th, but we'll see how that pans out. Hopefully we'll be able to get a few rounds off before maintenance crews show up for an unscheduled silent protest. —MasonMurray

2009-09-26 20:13:02   Ahhh reminds me of eighth grade, when me and my friends decided to build a Trebuchet out of PVC piping... It was a BLAST

When's the next demo? —JamesM
