World Championship Punkin Chunkin 2001
The Trebuchet Division

The ever popular and zany Mankiller - a truly Human Powered Machine - uses live human beings for counterweight. Their best throw was 398 feet
Lochness - a beautifully built Medieval treb - operated by Eric Westergaard. These guys gave the crowd a lot to cheer about - they were after the targets that Andy had made which were placed several hundred feet in front of the catapult line. During the weekend Lochness knocked down several of the targets, including the one below which they broke in two with one well placed shot.
