#whsfridayfact The Partridge Launcher – A design and technology project by Otis Ferry (OWL’96).  

Not wishing to make and design anything like a table, a gun cabinet, or definitely not a wind chime, Otis set about designing a Partridge Launcher!  This consisted of a long piece of pipe with a grove in it and was designed to launch a partridge approximately 50 yards.
