Catapult Challenge 2016

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.
