CHAMP Challenge Dec 2016

For those new readers the CHAMP Challenge works as follows.  Members arrive with no knowledge of the challenge.  Once teams are picked (random draw) they are then given a challenge to complete in 2 hours or less.  At the end of the 2 hours the things created will be pitted against each other.  Decembers CHAMP challenge was a flashback to the original challenge from over 2 years ago.  Members were asked to build a medieval weapon launching a projectile 20 ft through a foam castle – using only hand tools.

I think next time we may have to ban projectiles 🙂  This is a picture of one of our TVs!





The winner was Josh and Stephen and Dommer with a simple spear..  But the Honorable Mention goes to Brian, Tom and Drew with their fantastic build of a crossbow.  Remember no power tools were allowed.
