Trebuchetting at St Aloyisus School
I set up my small treb in wheeled mode with just 40 Kg power. This is less than half its limit, but at that it's easy to operate, safer and still can throw a bocce ball a serviceable distance - about 60m on a fairly flat trajectory - ideal for hitting a vertical wall.
I also took my onager. It was throwing cricket balls about 70m, but with a high angle that made hitting the target very difficult in the wind conditions.
