Letís do it, itís something I can probably get done unlike the other challenges that need my slinging range and a fair bit of time. Im away from home at the moment and my slinging is suffering, no range and only my rubber ball for a while now.

We'll I've had Handlebars by Flobots stuck in my head and I've now had plenty of time to practise cycling no handed. I'm as good now as I was when I was 15 so pretty darn good Cheesy I've also actually done it. I've slung a stone on a bike! It was just on the way back from work (late night with no one around) and I managed a low power helicopter shot using a really short sling from Loki. I could probably use a longer sling without problems but wanted to play sade to start with.

Video shall be coming soon Cheesy

Looking forward to it!

I've got my run planned out.† I don't want to go into any details in case it doesn't work out like I have it pictured in my head.† I want to try the new Y-sling I made this weekend, so the drive-by might have to wait another week.† I'll see how things go.

Also have to try to get that nail challenge in at some point.

Yeah I need to do that one too. I found a perfect plank of wood for it and I have nails so I just need to get out there. My work shifts have been seriously crazy so I just haven't had the time. I had 5 shifts in a row, then one day off, then another 5 in a row, then 4 in a row with one being a 12 hour shift and now, finally, I have two days off. I need a holiday.

Ok so I went out pretty early and got it done. Also lost my tennis ball and rock and bent my back wheel...

But I got it done! Video coming soon.

Took less than 10 tryís, was harder to ride on the bumpy road one handed than it was to throw.

Just a heads up as well, you donít want to get your sling tangled in your wheels. Thatís for sure.

I literally came home for the weekend so Iím glad I could do it

This thread is probably the most entertaining part of slinging.org for me. What Iíd really like is a little more participation from other members. We have had a good little thing going between myself, kick and joe but I know there are other slingers on the forum that are well capible of these challenges.
Maybe a small incentive would encourage more activity?
Could we perhaps start a challenge with some type of judging or voting?
I would love a online tournament and 10+ competitors?
If we got 8 or 16 we could do it as a VS contest.
Start with easier tasks and vote or judge the winner of each pair until thereís a ultimate winner. A prize might encourage a few more participants. Maybe even teams?

I think that this thread being in the ďsportsĒ area gets it overlooked a lot.

Iím not in the best spot to be doing challenges as usual but this thread really gets my motivation going and keeps me improving.

I'm with you man.† This thread has not only kept my interest, but has been a great help to keep me practicing.

I would also like to see more participation.† I thought the indoor challenges had a chance to do that, but didn't seem to.† That was basically a 'create your own challenge' event.† Although admittedly I had a good time with it and posted a bunch of things in a pretty short span of time.† There was also NOC's trash sling challenge (not in this thread specifically, but I think it counts), which had a prize.† But only a few entries were posted by the end.

I think there's a lot of reasons why folks aren't able or don't want to participate.† But if anyone is willing to share their own reason, I would be interested to hear.† Is it available time, video recording capability, lack of interest in crazy chance hits (like hitting a coin out of the air Wink)...

Personally I would love to join in, but I canít justify the time right now.  I am on total lockdown right now, so if I canít do it in my backyard, it isnít happening, and most of my ďfree time ď happens after dark when my children are unconscious for the night.
