Calling For Catapult Geeks!

The King of Fling Catapult Contest will be launched at this year’s Maker Faire. Organized by Bill Gurstelle, author of Backyard Ballistics, The King of Fling contest features two different classes, both involving water balloons. One is a target shoot where you gain points for hitting targets in a field. The other is a face-off against other contestants, where the object is to hit each other.
