I make things, including bows, siege engines, coffee, and messes. Note: I'm not my dad; this is William Riley Harrison III, aka "little Riley", not to be confused with William Riley Harrison II, aka "big Riley", my dad.

The Greenway Glow is taking place Saturday, tomorrow night, and I need your help with my project. I'm going to be launching glowing water balloons through the night sky.

I need help transporting a giant trebuchet from the Hack Factory, at 3119 26th street east, to a spot right near Freewheel Midtown Bike center, roughly 10th ave south on the greenway. Total trip length: about 2 miles, or 8 minutes of driving.

The trebuchet is pretty good sized, but it breaks down into pieces, and just might fit in a good sized pickup truck.

The event starts at 8 pm, so I need to be loading up from the hack factory by 6 pm or so to get there and get everything set up in time.

I'll be taking apart the trebuchet on Sunday, during the day, so there's a lot of flexibility for the return trip.

I could also use some help assembling and operating the trebuchet, and having someone to hand out fliers to people attending the event.

If you can help in any way, please let me know.

You can see the trebuchet in action at Northern Spark 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgWJvGjnp80

I still have 2 seats left in my April 25th bow making class. If you ever wanted to get into archery, and learn how to make a bow of your very own, this is your chance.
Here's a pic I found that another archer took, of me using one of these bows at the archery range south of Lake Calhoun (ack, so chubby back then):

I'll be scheduling more classes in the very near future, so keep your eyes open.
I also still have room in my Laser Cutter class on April 21st: https://laser101apr21.eventbrite.com

I've scheduled some new classes at the Hack Factory, including an Introduction to Bow Making, and two sessions of Intro to Laser Cutting.

If you've ever wanted to get into archery, or just want to get in touch with your inner Legolas, this is the class for you.

In this 8 hour class, you'll be making a fully functional red oak american flat bow, suitable for target shooting, hunting, or just to have an awesome fully functional costume accessory.  

Bow making class on Saturday, 25 APR: https://bowyer101apr25.eventbrite.com

Laser cutter class on Wednesday, 15 APR: http://laser101apr15.eventbrite.com

Laser cutter class on Tuesday, 21 APR: http://laser101apr21.eventbrite.com
