Build an ice making machine. One to make the most ice whens. I would think block ice of some size be required, but crushed slushy might work...

Earthmovers well sand movers anyway. the junkyard has an old backhoe WITHOUT A DRIVETRAIN and belt conveyors and old farm augers in it. (YEAH I realize the junkyard is seeded) One expert is from JCB or John Deere. the Other is from Necastle coal country and is the expert on coal belts and augers from the mines. Load 2 dumptrucks (sides are 10 or 12 feet high. dumptrucks come with drivers are taken to scales and weighed then dumped and return for more sand. Most tonnage in an hour wins. Lots of oppurtunity for the junk to break. Blown engines hydralic hoses bursting, belt rollers seizing. Great Fun!

I'd like to see Fighting (tanks or some such) or jousting machines. The team that inflicts the most damage should win.
