Last week my son’s Webelo den was invited to participate in a “punkin chunkin'” with a local Boy Scout troop. The Boy Scouts had built 2 trebuchets, the larger standing approximately 10 feet tall at its axis. Here’s an explanation of how a trebuchet works. Modern, homemade, medieval weaponry and flying pumpkins? What’s not to love? This seemed like a good opportunity to give vlogging a try–I hope this video does the experience justice.
[Special thanks to National Pike District Boy Scout Troop 882 for inviting the younger boys to share this experience.]
