World Championship Chunk 2010: Torsion Class
The torsion class had a fabulous year with multiple machines breaking 2000 ft.
Chucky 3 did pretty well on Friday, but on Saturday while cranking things up, one of the retaining pins that holds the modiolus on broke, and their right modiolus slid forward. The backed off with the hydraulics to reposition the bundle, then welded everything into place.
For Sunday, the cranked things up on the left side which was still functional, and got off their winning throw!

Roman's revenge did great on Friday. Dissatisfied, they decided to pull their bundle out, and perform a complete re-wrap. This gave them a moderate performance boost on Saturday, but allowed them to really crank things up and do spectacularly well on Sunday.
On Friday, Bob tried out his new fancy lighter "Haulin Ash" arm, but bent it to pieces during the throw, resulting in his 700ft throw. He put in his backup arm from last year, and was good to go for the rest of the competition.
Gaul Buster did great all weekend. No mishaps, just progressively better and better throws all weekend.
I need a pictures and a short story of the plague from this year! Can someone help me out? Thanks!
