The 'Yankee Siege' catapult is
actually called a "Trebuchet". It is a counterweight, gravity driven
machine with a sling at the end of a long throwing arm. Trebuchets are
thought to have been developed first in China, refined in the Middle East
and refined again in Europe.
Trebuchets would be built on the site of an actual battle campaign. The
materials would be gathered locally and the machine would be constructed
about 250 yards away from the castle wall. This distance was just out of
reach of the bow and arrows that the defenders would use. When the
trebuchet was completed, it would hurl huge rocks at the castle walls.
Castle walls would range from 6 feet to 15 feet thick. The rock
projectiles would weigh about 250lbs each. Repeated firings of the machine
would hurl the rocks at the same spot on the castle walls until the walls
themselves were pulverized. A gap in the castle wall would then allow the
attackers to enter the castle and lay siege to the occupants.
For two hundred years, 1300-1500, the trebuchet was the ultimate military
siege weapon. The invention of the cannon, around 1500 A. D., spelled
doom for the trebuchet.
We invite you to see our "Trebuchet" in action. Join us across the street
from "Yankee Farmer" in beautifull Greenfield, New Hampshire. We will be
demonstrating the machine from 1:00 to 5:00 PM every Saturday and Sunday
through the end of October, weather permitting. Call ahead if the weather
is threatening at 603-547-6421

Our mission statement:
Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club (Mass Chapter) was
started because of the need to provide a place where all Valkyrie Riders could
band together and share the combined wealth of knowledge about this great
motorcycle. A simple place with no political structure and where malice toward
other Motorcycle Riders will not be tolerated.
The Massachusetts Chapter is also one of the
members of the VRCC New
England Chapter. In New England, we like to refer ourselves as a one big
family and therefore, most of our functions and rides are planned on a regional
level with members attending from all over New England.
One of the goals of this website is to try
to bring together more members from Massachusetts in order to have a
better representation of the Bay State in our various activities.
Remember, the more we are the more fun we have !
