Sling Competition: Scores! Let's do this!
Aug 6th, 2013 at 3:46pm
 
Allright, I've out of patience and I'm tired of all this government-ish decision making.

Lets just have the competition. Here are the rules:

Any sling, Any Style, Any solid ammo (no shot gunning or chain slinging Wink ).

Distances at 10, 15, and 20 meters (or 11, 16, and 21 yards for Americans Smiley ). These closer distances are ideal for those with less room or new slingers.

Standard Balearic target, 1.2 meter (4 feet) target with a .5 meter (foot and half) bulls-eye. http://slinging.org/index.php?page=balearic-sling-competitions---vicente

2 points for hit on black, one point for white.

Targets can be painted on a wall, made from carpet, cardboard, netting, whatever you can get your hands on.

5 shots at each distance. (for those with short memories, that's 10, 15, and 20m. 15 shots total)

30 points is a perfect score. No rewards for now besides self satisfaction and being able to see your improvement recorded online.

This will run primarily on the honor system (not everyone has time or access to a video camera). Please have honor and be honest.

You can enter your scores as many times as you'd like but you have to take each session (15 shots, 3 distances) together (as opposed to the best of three sessions).

OR...

Same general rules, any sling, any solid ammo, any style, Balearic target, same scoring.

However, the distance and shot count would be 10 shots at 10 meters and 10 shots at 15 meters.

Perfect score of 40.

It doesn't matter what order you sling at distance wise, but traditionally, you start close and move back.

Who's with me?  Cool


First time target slinging in a couple months and I scored a 12 on the first system and a 21 on the second. Personally I thought the second number as a little more self esteem building and we can start with that and work towards the first system once we're all a little better. Smiley

Try each and let me know what you think!

Outstanding idea, count me in, also.  Spray paint on the side of the barn, my neighbors already think I'm nuts, anyways.

count me in! i only have 24 hours to myself a week right now, but i'll start keeping score ASAP. i'm asking a local martial arts school about throwing together a bit of a "learn to sling day/ slinging competition" as well, because it would be very similar to some of the weapons clinics they already do  Smiley

soon as I get round to making  a portable balearic target I'll give it a go.

See how much time I get next week (ie: how much work I get in)

This sounds awesome! Did I miss the part about where the scores shall be posted? I'm in no way capable of competing with anyone but I would REALLY be interested in watching some videos of those that can do this while filming ;0) hopefully some of you brave souls will take this challenge and run with it!

Just to point out that the board should be nearer to 4 feet than 5 (it's 1.20m instead of 1.5 Smiley )

"Just to point out that the board should be nearer to 4 feet than 5 (it's 1.20m instead of 1.5 Smiley )"

Right! I forgot that in Spanish the comma is the equivalent of the decimal point so somehow I read it as 1 and a half. IDK. Anyway, I'll edit it in the main post but it should be about 4ft.
Thanks.

Yep, I have access to search engine converters too.  Roll Eyes But for people who don't want to measure down to the 100,000 place, 4 feet base and foot and half bulls eye will do.  Wink

Except I use this great thing called a tape measure with foot and centimeters on it so I don't have to do conversions Wink
