Goodbye to an old friend

Greetings my friends.

I had to say goodbye to an old friend, Warwolf my Trebuchet :cry: I checked it over on saturday last and discovered to my horror that wet rot had set in. I had a decision to make, repair it or send it to the great siegecamp in the sky. There was too much to repair and I would build a new one a lot faster. So with great sadness I took out my trusty chainsaw and dismembered it. I am still in shock :cry: I gave my Trebuchet a Viking funeral, befitting its status and as I watched the flames go up into the night sky I remembered the day 'Warwolf' first fired a shot. I was like a proud father watching their child walk for the first time :)' Warwolf ' and I went on great adventures, and many a time he stole the show, but no more i'm afraid. :cry: He made many friends and knocked down many walls. But now 'Warwolf' stands by the greatest of warriors firing Its mighty boulders from the walls of Valhalla. :|

Salve Lupus :!:

At a time like this there is nothing anyone can say. Warwolf has fired many a shot aginst enemy and 'friend' alike, but it was a grat machine ;) Warwolf is now with the gods :!:

Hey Sean!

Sorry to hear the bad news :(
I remember the year you 'missed' :o the walls in Charles Fort, and the ball landed on the parade ground in the middle of the fort, right as the guide was starting a tour! :twisted: Powerfull little machine!

Greetings my friends.

God I remember that :D one of the lads overloaded the weight box so when the treb fired it overshot the wall. You never saw five grown men run so fast. We raced into fort, I had visions of some little old lady sitting quietly at her table sipping a cup of tea BAM!!! a missile from the treb lands in the middle of her table sending tea pots, cups, saucers and sticky buns all over the place, giving her a heart attack in the process! Thankfully nothing like that happened, but that little episode scared the shite out of me. Though when I look back on it now, I have to laugh :lol:

Sean this leaves me both sad and scared sad to see the passing of Warwolf (who has been in re-enactment longer than a lot of people) and scared of what you'll come up with next.

A loss to all who enjoyed the spectacle and cabbage episodes, or other interesting firing choices.
WarWolf will be missed, but well remembered my friend :)

Onwards, and upwards Sean. At least Warwolf was reasonably reliable...
