Game description

For this game, you will initially need 2 – 4 rubber straps. Those you usually use for bicycle racks. Then secure them between two posts. In addition, you will need something, that will hold the objects in place. Ideally, a large ring or a ring-shaped structure will do. Noe, the candidate, puts his object, a tennis ball or a pine cone into this structure and then throws it as far as just possible. Make sure that nobody is in the firing line at all times. Even small and soft objects can cause painful bruises.


The winner is the participant who could catapult his object the furthest.
