Here’s another team with too much time on their hands. They have a lot of fun with it, and with things that go bang!

Looks like a good time was had by all.
Bowling ball cannons are fun. We had one at our annual Blogorado gathering one year, converted from an old gas cylinder. It launched bowling balls to a very satisfying distance with a loud CRRRUMP! (We had a reproduction Civil War-era M1841 mountain howitzer another year, which was even more fun. I wonder if one could swage a bowling ball down far enough to fit the bore of a 12-pounder cannon like that? Hmmm . . . )
Blogorado 2020 is coming up in a few weeks. I wonder what high-explosive mayhem the boys are planning this year? I’m going to be taking a number of new toys with me, to function-test them and sight them in. It’s going to be fun!
