Catapult 2015

058 (Medium)

The annual CW12 District catapult competition, run at Dolphin Beach, is a test of pioneering skills, where Scout Troops are required to build a large catapult. Only ropes and poles may be used, and troops need to construct the entire thing from scratch in less than 2 hours. The final catapults are evaluated on their construction and the distance they can launch a projectile.

The most recent event, 2015, was organised by the 1st Table View Scout Group, and independently judged by the 1st Bothasig/Table Bay Rovers.
