This past Friday, 5 teams from Scout Troops in our district got together at Dolphin Beach to build catapults and fire off flaming projectiles in some fun competition! The Table Bay Rovers were there to assist the Chief Judge, Terrence, with judging the structures build by the Scouts. Despite some serious wind, it was a fun evening and the standard of the constructions, as well as ingenuity and techniques used to improve the catapults range was a huge step-up from 2015.
The overall results were:
|Pos.||Throw Distance||m||Construction Quality||pts|
|1st||1st Monte Vista||37/32||1st Milnerton Sea Scouts||74|
|2nd||1st Blaauwberg Sea Scouts||29/20||1st Monte Vista||72|
|3rd||1st Milnerton Sea Scouts||29/19||1st Blaauwberg Sea Scouts||71|
|4th||1st Table View||22/0||1st Table View||70|
|5th||1st Factreton||DNC||1st Factreton||66|
We’d like to congratulate 1st Milnerton and 1st Monte Vista on their achievements. You can find the full score breakdown as well as general competition information here.
