How about a Cable Car Relay?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
My son Alex(8), would like to see the teams build machines that would hang from a suspended cable (over water) that would transport each team member to the other side. Two options for the challenge would be A. One person at a time and the machine would then have to return empty to pick up the next team member (My vote)or B. One person acts as a driver and takes one team member at a time then drives back to get the next (Alex's vote).

I suggested this a couple of weeks ago. I thought it could be two towers with two sets of cables, could be pre-set by the staff. Probably about 10 or 15 feet above the ground, or as in your suggestion, above the water. Rich.

excellent idea. we were just talking about thet the other day.i like the idea of having one driver to get the rest across. maybee the driver could even be stationed on one side working the controls from a designated spot.
