As part of the 2016 APEGNB Pumpkin Fling, students from ASD-N will have the opportunity to compete for Cash Prizes in the first ever mini-trebuchet contest. The contest will take place September 24, 2016 on Chatham's Waterford Green in Miramichi, NB.

All teams should be at Waterford Green with their trebuchets by 1:00PM. Teams will be asked to set up their trebuchets near the ASD-N Launch Zone in preparation for the 7 Trebuchet Salute. At 1:30PM the Pumpkin Fling Mini-Trebuchet Contest will begin with a countdown and a simultaneous launch of all trebuchets.

Please note that the launch times are approximate. We will be starting the five minute timer for each team as soon as they are prepared to launch. The next team will be called to the ASD-N Launch Zone as soon the timer of the previous team expires or they have taken their last shot. All teams should be prepared to enter the launch zone when they are called.

For launch times, competition rules, design guidelines and additional information, please see the attached PDF document.
