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.
