Pumpkin Chuckin

Here's a trebuchet built by MAJ Battschinger of Civil Affairs - designed to hurl a pumkin over 1000 feet! Can't wait to see it in action! A battery powered winch pulls the counterweighted lever down, the pumpkin is loaded and the counterweight provides the downward force to rotate the lever and fling the pumpkin vast distances. Major Battschinger competes in pumpkin chuckin contests back in the US; great for him to share his expertise!
