Title: International Competition Rules
Post by curious_aardvark on Apr 19th, 2015 at 1:11pm
These are as simply as they can be and consist of target and distance.
For a competition to be an official part of the International federation Of Slingers. These simple rules need to be followed.

120cm square. With a central disc of 50 centimetres diameter.
The centre of the disc should be 160 cm above the ground.

Distances to compete over are: 10, 20 & 30 metres.
Points are awarded as follows:

10 & 20 metres: hitting the square is 1 point. Hitting the disc is 2 points.
Discretion is given to the referee on whether clipping the disc is 1 or 2 points.

For 30 Metres: Square scores 2 points and disc scores 4.

Ammunition is up to the organisers.
And all sling types and materials are allowed, as are any slinging styles.

Targets can be made of almost anything, just so long as the above criteria are met.

So for instance. You could hang a square of tarpaulin between two trees and cut a hole in the middle.
Anything from that on up to the threaded metal rod target ranges we made in wyoming (and are possibly still there) are viable.

The idea is to make this as accessible and open as possible while creating a coherent and consistent competition structure that can be used the world over.

These rules also need to be adhered to for any competition to qualify as sanctioned.

There will be approved indoor and outdoor ammo guides coming. These won't be compulsory - but preferred and safe recommendations.

If you want to submit an idea for ammo - it needs to be enviromentally friendly(ish). Must not richochet or shatter and should ideally be cheap to make from materials readily available the world over.
