shot1.JPG (280284 bytes) After the entries were measured to make sure they fit in the rules, They were shot. First for distance and then for accuracy. My first shot went very high!

shot2.JPG (294188 bytes) Unfortunately it didn't go very far.............

shot3.JPG (298893 bytes) The next entry (from Quinn's lady, whose name I forgot) went the second longest for distance and was the winner of the most accurate contest.

shot5.JPG (272159 bytes) The third entry (from THL Quinn Phelan) sent the marshmallow an amazing 32 yards to win the distance contest.

shot4.JPG (302935 bytes) Here's another shot showing Quinn getting ready to launch a marshmallow. His siege engine also took the prize for the most period appearing.

    All in all it was a fun contest. I fully plan on this being a regular event. However, After Quinn win a few more time, we may have to make he become a contest judge and not a competitor. So every one, start planning your siege engine for next year!
