Gun for accuracy : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I know that the cannon/gun thing has been done, but I don't believe they've ever had this variant. The challenge would be to build a device to fire projectiles with the intent of breaking balloons at different ranges. Allow the use of engines. Each team would get 3 to 5 test shots and 5 to ten shots that count. Place several balloons on a test range at various ranges/positions and give the balloons a point value based on range.

Great Idea!

Did anyone else see the great big targets they were firing at during the cannon competition? Or was that just me? Admittedly, the range might have been a little shorter, but accuracy was the intent all along.
