The person who did trajectory for us always manages to just miss medals she got
2008 states 6th(1 out of a medal)
2009 regionals 6th(also 1 out of a medal)
2009 states i think it was 7th(also 1 out of a medal)
Also our trajectory machine is EPIC!!!
It looks kind of like a bazooka on a stand
unfortunetly I don't have any pics otherwise I would post them

A lot of devices look like that. It's an effective design.

Yeah I don't think we need pictures we've all seen the design, but still go ahead and upload if you have pics.

really? the people at NY states had never seen anything like it including all of the judges and all of the ones I saw were the classic lacrosse stick/some sort of holder thing launcher
yes it was PVC with bungee cords and a metal thing that pulled back which was clamped to be in launch position
Though I still think that it was different from the disign ur talking about It was more complex I believe but for all I know they are the same

Yep that's the same principle as our design. I posted pics of my device from 2 years ago here: 164|2/a2j_IMG_0021.jpg <--- That your general design?
