Pumpkin On A Stick

Pumpkin On A Stick is a traction trebuchet build by Craig Macomber for the Burlington Pumpkin Pitch in 2007. It is powered by the weight of two teenagers, and threw an 8 pound pumpkin 84.4 feet. It was the only treb at the contest that would have had any hope of fitting in a compact car with four people, which is how it got there, and was the only machine that would have qualified for the youth division had there been one.
