i know many many people in the fireworks industry, and several in missouri, which is where this is a huge thing. they've all told me it's a legit sport and the guys get real serious about it. haha. looks like a ton of fun to me.

I saw that years ago on the History Channel.

Still Way Cool [thumbsup]

However, I didn't know the charge weight until now.

At $20+ per lb. for Black Powder, that can make for an expensive afternoon.

Since this is a popular sport out west, I wonder how they score this for the winner?

I suppose they could set up a bunch of theodolites, follow the anvil up, read the angle and do the math, or is there some simple way?
