“ACCURACY 1-4”

For the purposes of Standardizing Accuracy within the Community of Slinging.Org, the following rules will be employed.  

•      The Target shall be a 120cm (or approximately 4ft)white square with a black center circular bull’s-eye 50cm (appx 20”) in diameter.  This is the Balearic Standard, however, the target may be made of any material in any color as long as the dimensions remain the same.

•      In keeping with the “Free Spirit” of our community, there are no restrictions on sling type, sling length, sling method, technique or projectiles used.

•      Note:  only one projectile may be thrown at a time.

•      Refer to the scoring table below for Number of Shots, Range, Point Values, and qualifying scores.
