and this: http://www.toywiz.com/angrybird3pig.html . Cute and all, but the yellow bird fell 4 and a half meters short of what we predicted (when our test projectiles all fell within a meter of each other at that mass ratio) and then on the second shot fell out of the sling and went backwards.
It's not like our team was incompetent. We had done over 90 test shots, and once we knew just how badly these flew, we managed to get the green pig (which at least was approximately spherical instead of approximately a frilly beaked triangle) in the box at 15 meters on the first try.
Is there any chance we can get the judges to decide on the type of projectile next year and announce it beforehand? I'd be a lot happier knowing the projectile would be a water balloon with an unknown amount of sand in it (with the amount of sand announced after impound) rather than it being anything "approximately spherical" and "under" 6 cm.
Why do I put "under" in quotation marks? because at regionals we were presented with a 7 cm diameter tennis ball, and the angry bird plushies we were given at states are clearly labelled as "three inch."

Doesn't it say the dimensions at the bottom of the page you linked to?
