Troop 2810 build catapults during campout

Scout Troop 2810, chartered out of Salem Lutheran Church in Sycamore, recently held its annual catapult campout at Russell Woods in Genoa. Four groups competed in five different categories – accuracy, distance, speed, precision and consistency in the throwing of water balloons. Each team had four hours to construct their catapult out of wooden spars and twine, using the knots and lashings they practiced and learned during their weekly meetings. The adults ended up taking first place again, keeping their winning streak going, but the scouts vow revenge for next year.
