How to Make Camping Shoot-the-ChuteWritten by Daivd Z
Continued from page 1
Screw strips firmly to chute with 2-inch screws from under side. These ought to be placed not more than 2 feet apart. Probably each will have two or more strips in making a piece of sufficient length. If so, care should be taken to have pieces joined on a bevel with a slant from outer edge toward bottom of chute, so as to leave no edge.
The utmost care should be used to have a perfectly smooth surface on inside of chute. A pump or bucket is needed at top of chute to wet surface before swimmer starts his slide.
The supports should be firmly braced with 2 x 4-inch timber, and lower end of chute should extend over pier at least 1 foot and not nearer surface of water than 3 feet perpendicularly, allowing swimmer to enter water as in a dive.
The chute can be fastened to supporting braces through timbers, into maple side strips with a good heavy log screw. A platform 3 feet wide and 4 feet long near top of chute, and set just waist deep from top of chute will make starting easy.

and spraying each other. "Hey!" hollowed Shawn. "You guys want some candy!" Instantly they turned around and started to run towards Shawn and Tina. "We don't have any candy!" whispered Tina. "I know," he whispered back. "Where?" asked one boy once they all reached where Shawn was standing. "If you stay here for a little bit, I'll give you all a bunch of candy." "What is this, some kind of test?" snapped another boy. "Uh, yeah," stated Shawn. "Think you guys can handle it?" "Of course we can handle it you fool! All of Shawn's friends stood in hot sun determined to prove they could handle heat. A women walked up to Shawn. “What are you doing to these kids?” she asked. “Nothing ,” Shawn replied. “I don’t like look of this.” The women proceeded to a police officer. “Uh oh, we better do something,” stated Tina. “What seems to be problem officer?” Shawn asked once officer came over. “This women claims that your torturing kids behind me.” “No we’re not. Their my friends and we’re just playing a game.” The officer turned his head around to kids direction. “It looks like you’re giving them sunburns.” “Really, we’re playing a game. There’s nothing to be concerned about here,” Shawn insisted. “I’m keeping my eye on you,” officer stated. “Shawn, this is a bad idea. We’re going to get into trouble!” “No we aren’t! Give it ten more minutes!” 10 minutes later... Sweat was consuming everyone's foreheads. The children’s neck and back ached from burning sun beating down on them. "Hey man! I'm getting burned!" "How do you feel?" Shawn asked. "Annoyed! I don't want any candy! I wanna get out of this sun and now!" "Me either," every one of Shawn’s friends spoke. “Shawn, look at their skin!” shrieked Tina. Shawn looked over to see their skin was peeling a gross brown peel. “What is that?” “It must be chocolate. It was burned out of them.” “Oh my gosh! Look at those kids!” women stated. “Officer, Officer!” she cried. “Shawn do something! We’re going to get into trouble, hurry!” Think of something!” Shawn started to panic. “Peel yourself!” Tina screamed. “Yeah, peel yourself!” he stood in disbelief that he hadn’t thought of that. Carefully Shawn’s friends started to peel away dead chocolate layer of skin. “What’s going on?” asked police officer. “Nothing sir. Some innocent fun.” The police officer looked at dark peelings on ground. “Clean this up!” He then turned to crowd that had gathered around. “There’s nothing to see here folks. Please go on with what you were doing.” "We did it!" Shawn exclaimed. "We cured them!" "I guess." "You guess! Of course we did! Now except for being all sweaty, every thing's gonna go back to normal." "I'm glad this is over. This school year is going to be a relaxing one after this summer." "Yeah, but don't forget. There's always next summer," Shawn stated. “Don’t even think about it! This was too close for me! We’re never going back to that farmhouse ever again. Understand?” “We’ll see,” Shawn smirked.
