300px-2-talent_caliberMr. B’s Webelos II Cub Scout den is building a catapult this morning on some rural land northwest of the rancho.

Presumably a good deal smaller (and less dangerous) than this Roman ballista. I hope so, anyhow.

It’s part of their engineering achievement dealie for their Arrow of Light.

Don’t ask me what the AoL means. I was in Boy Scouts but never finished Cubs, if they even had AoLs back in my personal Dark Ages.

  1. Scouts building a catapult in vicinity of your house? Hmm… I would do some scouting of my own, just to be on the safe side 😉

  2. About eight miles away, actually. Turned out to be quite small. Threw an apple about forty feet.
