Swaton Hosts World Egg Throwing Contest

One would think throwing an egg would be as east at shot-put or baseball, but the World Egg Throwing Contest in a whole new ball egg game. Imagine taking an egg and catapulting it into the air from a contraption that looks positively medieval.

The most fascinating event used a variety of counterweight trebuchet. The weapons at today's show were build specifically to throw an egg from the sling. The accuracy needed a little work though - several eggs flew backwards into the crowd and the craft marquee!
