Maker Faire – Invitation to all: Participate in the King of Fling catapult contest!

Flingers
If you like to build things (and what Maker doesn’t?) you can become the Count of Catapults, the Earl of Hurl, or the Baroness of Ballistas.

Announcing the King of Fling Catapult Contest. It takes place May 19-20, 2007 at Maker’s Faire at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. We want you to build a real, working catapult and enter it our competition. If you don’t know how, don’t fret, we’ll help you figure it out.
Examples of catapults.

It’s fun, exciting, and as easy (or as intricate) as you want to make it. Be part of the excitement.

    I’d love to participate in this, but I don’t have time at this point. You should post things like this earlier, I would have definitely participated.
