About

Help 22AD Go To Australia And Throw Fruit At Aussies On Their Home Turf.

Project 2015-11-25 10:27:54 +1300

This project is to help raise funds to go towards airfares for members of 22AD Ancient and Medieval Artillery to travel to Brisbane for the purposes of throwing fruit at Australian knights at the Ingural AMC Queensland Cup in June, 2016.

At the Taupo Faire this year several knights got to experience the impact of HVFS (high velocity fruit salad) and we'd like to share the experience with more Australians. A reenactor in Australia is building a trebuchet to our design, but we need to be able to get there to run the range during the event.

22AD has been entertaining and educating kids for over a decade and during that time we've help to encourage an interest in history, engineering, maths and drive by fruitings. Your support will help us take our skills to the heathens in Australia and subject them to HVFS*.

 

*High velocity fruit salad.

A late reward has been added

21/02/2016 at 10:47 AM

Due to one our contributors having a splendid idea, you can now pledge a message! Your message will be written on the ammo prior to launch (because that is way easier than trying to write on it whiles its in flight) and you will recieve a jpeg image of the ammo and it will be included in the event video.

I know they're Australians but try and keep it clean. Also brief, they're only fruit.

The latest and final addition to the rewards

18/02/2016 at 2:08 PM

This reward is a great opotunity to try your hand at catapulting by building your own machine. Two plans, one for a single armed onager and the other for the very unusual Roman inswinger. These are the same machines that 22AD uses for its Have Go Range. So they're good enough for us.

We recently completed prototyping the Onager Kit and its now avaialble as a reward on this fund raiser. The kit contains everything you need to assemble and shoot except glue. You ever tried to mail glue? Seriously don't do it, an eww moment waiting to happen.

The pledge also includes international postage so it can be delivered to your home for only $32 US. 

Welcome to 2016!

Well the year was barely 6 hours old when someone tried to kill be by driving on the wrong side of the road, but I'm still here. As apresent for everyone who actually takes the trouble to read these updates I included this link to a free Roman Legionary tent pattern. Use it in good health.

Merry Christmas
