    Folks, the World's Most Traveled Slingshot is back!

    For those who are unaware, Brazil has been going through some very tough political times as of late. Things have stabilized a bit but are not perfect. During all of this, there were endless postal issues. During that time, the World's Most Traveled slingshot found its way in a customs warehouse in Brazil, never to be seen again. Or so we thought...

    It has just been retrieved by BrazilViking and is now ready to continue its travels. There is only one problem, the original list of folks to which it was to travel is no longer an entirely valid list of individuals that shoot slingshots.

    Here are the rules again so that you can join if you wish. The slingshots will be mailed to you. You shoot the one, sign it and ship it on to the next on the list. The second one is to be built by all. Add your twist to the partially built slingshot in the box and also pass that on in the shipment. As the slingshot circulates the globe it will become closer to a finished slingshot. Once it has circumnavigated the globe, it will return to me. I will finish up whatever needs to be done and ship both off to Jorg for safe keeping in his collection.

    Sign up again below.

    Yeah, mates! The precious ones were hidden in a mail central. Package violated, some stuff stolen. But the shooters are intact. And getting ready to hit the road. Sorry for the delay....

    Circumnavigate the globe.
    Celebrate the global forum united by a love of shooting projectiles with elastic and forked sticks.

    In short.

    That's my take on it.
