The Castlemaker’s Shovercraft showing/demo
will be this Saturday (8/30) at the Greencastle Farmer’s Market on the square in Downtown Greencastle. These leaf blower powered hovercraft, built by our 9-11 year old Putnam county participants, will be on display a good portion of the morning – so stop by! We’ll fire a few up around 9:30 before the music at the Farmer’s Market starts at 10 am.
These hovercraft are being called them Shovercraft because they only have a hovering fan, not propulsion , so they have have to be shoved. Well and part of the upcoming competition will be landing the craft on a shuffleboard for points. I’m sure we’ll give demos several other times this Saturday, the kids are pretty excited about their craft. Look for us on Franklin street portion of the Market from 9-11 am Saturday.
The project update page can’t keeping up w/ flurry of activity this week, but there are some photos and a video of the work-in-progress so far.
