MoJam 2019 Chopstick Challenge
« on: August 25, 2018, 06:13:06 pm »
I had a thought and ran it past No Nose and he likes it. Soooo here it is.

The Chopstick Challenge. The idea is to take a set of bamboo chopsticks like you would get at your local chinese restaurant and build a working bow out of them. You also need to build yourself 3 arrows to shoot from your bow at the 10 yard target block for best score. I'm thinking two classes, backed and non backed. You can enter one bow into each class.

Is there a limit on the number of chop sticks that can be included in the bow?
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

Yes there is a limit on the number of chopsticks. The limit is one set of chopsticks per bow.

There is always at least one in the bunch that tries to twist the rules. So far I'm up to three people now. I thought this was going to be a simple fun challenge.
One set of chopsticks like you find at your local chinese restaurant.
Do I need to give the specks for chopsticks? (R

This sounds like fun a chopstick take down bow would be what I would build if I was attending. But to far for me to drive.

Now I need to find me a turkey with wing feathers small enough for arrows of this size.  Maybe straight from the shell?
