How about a race to fill each team's elevated water tank?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Here's my idea:
Teams race to fill an elevated stock tank with water. First team to fill their tank wins.
This works on a couple of levels. First, the means to accomplish this could be quite varied. A crude pump could be built, or some sort of mechanized bucket brigade. I see no reason to prevent a team from removing the tank from its elevated postion, filling it with water on the ground and replacing it. The full stock tank in its original elevated position is the goal.
Second, an actual race is always exciting, as opposed to teams taking turns.
Finally, who could resist the notion of Bowser in a wet T-shirt? :)

Let me be the first to say that I think I could resist. Interesting challenge, though- minus the wet Bowser.
