Yep - it was every bit as good as I had hoped it would be!

I have read up on the scoring for Balearic targets - but need to know how many shots do you get?

It really is a broad sport - I reckon we need a sling field coarse... like they do in archery with field target comps... Various ranges, 3 shots per target, uphill/downhill etc... would be wicked!

Thanks so much for your hard work on this guys!!!

check out the hill fort defence book .
I went up hill, downhill, in a ditch, on top of a hill in horizontal rain wind and snow. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hillfort-Defences-Tactics-Sling-Warfare/dp/178491410X/r...
Smiley
I actually found a pdf file with full balearic rules and instructions the other day:
http://www.tourism-mallorca.com/foners/03angl/04normes.html

That should cover it !

cheers for the link† joe.
@kick - don't assume I remember where I heard the last one whistle

@crazybrave - as I keep saying. Don't wait for someone else to do something. If you want a field coarse - go build one Smiley
