Punkin Chunkin World Championships 2003 - page 2
New for 2003 - Introducing the Unlimited Torsion Class!
Mighty, mean, and menacing on the firing line...hey those catapults look pretty cool too!
The excitement is so thick in the air you can smell it - or, is that something on Dave's grill???
Team Tormentum's impressive Mista Balista.
Team Tormentum works hard to prepare the Balista for the upcoming siege.
Those torsion bundles are the real guts of Mista Balista. Jeff is making a few modifications to the machine - just some fine tuning really!
Jeff demonstrates the proper head gear to wear around these machines - note the height of the Balista arm behind Jeff's head - and note too how well his team pays attention to him!
Andy engages in the traditional trash-talking with some of the other torsionists - and Eric is about to douse him with a jug of milk if he doesn't stop!
Another view of the Torsion line - ARRR! Some manly looking machines!
ChuckyII - refitted a bit from last year - it seems I've seen that profile somewhere before.....but where?
Chucky II gets cranked for another hurl (that persuader bar looks familiar too). Before snapping their arm, they were consistently putting Punkins out there - in the 1,000 foot range! If there was a Most Improved Award - it would have to go to these guys!
Yet another view of these majestic siege engines, and some ammo.
Chucky I - made a token appearance - however, it seems it is best suited to hurling footballs for NFL films!
More great pictures of these machines, and others, can be found at Team Tormentum's web siteSiege-Engine.com
