Catapults

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.
