I don't get how the bouncer is this tough for all of you. What distances are you getting?
Not very good distances I'm afraid

What is your longest elevated ramp?

We haven't practiced that one as much, but we should be able to get at least ten feet with our final design...

Ah, we got around there in States (and won).

Bouncer is hard at first, but if you get a good idea that's consistent then there's a pretty good chance you'll win.

Yeah...we have designs for the bouncer, but they aren't bouncing too far. (Only about two feet.)
It's not very accurate either, and we're trying to figure out the angle to set it at. :?

Hi. I'm new so I'm going to need some help here and there.

I'm on the B. The team A at my school can shoot their tennis ball about 8 meters with their catapult.

I belive the catapult arm should made of popsical sticks.

On the rules of list to bring, it says: Popsicle/craft sticks (approx. 12cm x 1cm) and/or toothpocks made of wood
So would 15.24 cm popsicle sticks work? Or could someone help me send a clarification, I don't know how to make one.

Thanks :D :D
