Not sure about New Year, but I'll be taking my trebuchet down to the harbour on Boxing Day to fling a few fireballs into the sea. Roughly 6.00pm.

(See here for a couple of videos from last year).

This will be the fourth year we've done it. It's on Boxing Day so as not to clash with Stonehaven and also because it's St Stephen's Day. It's not really a big thing - just something I like to do and people like to watch, but it's fun and usually quite spectacular.

The "weapon" itself is an old design, but is actually not that old. I built it about 3 years ago, just for a laugh.

Believe it or not, "trebucket" is a perfectly acceptable alternative pronunciation. (See here).

You dont get away that easily Trish ..... "trebuchet" is not pronounced "tray-bucket" only Stephen's new alternative word "trebucket" might be pronounced that way (and indeed perhaps we should check the pronunuciation to be sure !) Very Happy
