- motor turns and pulls string with nail that sets off a mousetrap

One thing I learned from competetion is that the string does not count as a mass, something has to be attatched to it for it to count.
Other ideas on this...

This is my first year doing this event in Division C (I did it in Division B, but that's a whole different ballgame). I was thinking having a motor/string method pull the golf ball slowly up 30 cm.

To be honest, it seems like a lot of these tasks can be combined in order to simplify the machine's design and construction....
all separate, and any order but the first/last steps as said in rules
