Pumpkin Launching

Jed is the Scoutmaster over Tucker's group and they were challenged to a pumpkin launching contest after Halloween. What else are you gonna do with all those pumpkins? Well after much design, head scratching, welding, and work they came up with this contraption which they tell me is a trebuchet. After their first trial run it broke, so they had to hurry and go weld it back together before the contest started. Meanwhile the other group's launcher arrived and during their trial run, a pumpkin somehow misfired and came back to slam the poor boy right in the face. He ended up having to leave immediately to go get stitches. The other group decided to bow out because they deemed their launcher "unsafe". You think?
Our boys came back with theirs ready to rock and roll! Another trial run and it worked perfectly! Launched them pretty far too. See the video below.
I think a good time was had by all, well almost all, except the poor boy who had to leave to get his whole upper lip stitched up.
