I’m running behind a bit… the mini-contest area in the gallery is created and the banner for the main contest is in place.  Alexa will try to get the entries in place tomorrow morning.

I will allow any “free” Christmas items out there for your render to fall under the “no count” rule, since most are only free for 1 day only.

I stumbled across this story (quite literally) back in my drinking days (and saw more than a few elves too).

I believe it’s actually a true story, except that Ganthor’s probably kidding us about the pizza, because it hasn’t happened like this in many decades. God only knows what gets Santa airborne these days. Those of us old enough remember can tell the younger crowd that our presents from Santa always had a yeasty smell to them.

Actually, it’s based on an even older legendary tale about the elves that lived in the mountains in my native state of Tennessee, except they didn’t make beer. It was more…uh, corn based. What we didn’t drink we used to run our go-carts. And our elves didn’t make pizza, it was ham hocks and cornbread, or course.

And chohole, consider your request done. I’ll be interested to see the reaction…

It is a catapult.  A trebuchet has a longer throwing arm and uses weights to create the throwing force (a catapult uses the energy for twisting ropes to swing the arm).
