Make Food N̶o̶t̶ War: Another LVL1 Hackathon

Hive13, I'm calling you out AGAIN, this time for a more different
exciting hackathon. As far as I know, no one from Hive13 made it out
to our last hackathon, but some folks from Cincy say our post on your
message board, and put up some fierce competition.

This October, from Saturday the 20th to Sunday the 21st, pit your
building skills against 9 other teams attempting to assemble the
finest food-flinging machines in the world.

Your challenge is to build a machine in 24 hours (or less) that can
fling the tastiest foodstuff the longest distance with the most
style. Teams can bring in any supplies they want (up to $150 worth--
We will be asking for receipts at the door!), but you can't put
anything together until the start of the competition. From then on
out, it's a free-for-all to build your contraption using the supplies
you've brought in alongside the supplies at the LVL1 hackerspace.

As with last time, buy only one ticket per team! One ticket gets your
entire team in the door! Try to think of a team name before you show
At the end of the competition, teams will judge eachother in the
following categories:

Taste: How delicious is it, after being flung?
Distance: How far did you fling it?
Ingenuity: How well-built was your flinger? How crazy?
Appearance: Is your food recognizable on the other end?

Scores in each category will be averaged, and the top three teams will
receive their assorted glory.

The rules:
$150 budget, not counting parts from the boneyard at LVL1
Must be built in 24 hours (nothing preassembled!)
Team size is unlimited (in either direction), but 3-6 is recommended
