My take on it is that any one can attempt the challenges
Of corse we can just go by word of mouth but I think video footage will be the most enjoyable for other members . Should be new footage not old.

A lot of these challenges leave it open to try 1000s of times with the video camera running.

Maybe leave the board open to new challenges. Like the human body shots . Hit a frizbee in flight

And maybe have all submissions by Christmas and a little secret Santa for the participants. Sling trading

Just some ideas again.

Had a good atempt at curving around a tree yesterday . Was coming close to Diana at 10 m but no direct hits .

Keep on practicing

Hope some of these get done

I love these types of threads. If time permits I would like to get a video up if at all possible.  I wouldn't mind taking a few shots at a soda can or something.   Looking forward to seeing other peoples videos. Wink

Thinking about it and I think we should have a (beer) can challenge .

Any feat where a sling is used to hit a can . It really would make for the best highlight reel!!

I just spent the last hour practicing with a can as a target from 5 m.
I must say I had over 100 shots (guessing) and only 7 hits.
5 direct and 2 glancing.
Gonna be harder than I thought.
Going from the 50cm disk to a can.

@Mersa by glancing you mean indirect(hit after bouncing) or to the side with small damage?
