“If you lived in the Dark Ages, and you were a catapult operator, I bet the most common question people would ask is, 'Can't you make it shoot farther?' No. I'm sorry. That's as far as it shoots.”
Jack Handey. *Deeper Thoughts*. New York. Hyperion. 1993.

The Webelos (all two of them!) are continuing to work on the Engineering Pin requirements. Today, we built a catapult using large tongue depressors, a rubber band and plastic spoon. Then they flung pompoms to see who could get the most into a plastic container. The directions that were provided by in the Leader’s Handbook weren’t the clearest to follow. I should have made a prototype to work out all the bugs before the meeting, but I completely forgot that we even HAD a meeting until this morning. Luckily, I had most of the materials, and with a quick trip to Home Depot before work, I was able to procure what I was missing. Crisis averted.
