Sweet!

But also frustrating.† It's not particularly steep, but I live on a hill that's been covered with snow for too long.† I've tried slinging a couple times but it's just not working.† I get that little slip under my feet that's not enough to make me fall, but becomes the only thing I'm thinking about.

NOOC, I might have to live vicariously through you (sling-wise) for the next month and a half or so.† I never expected to miss the mud from some of the wetter summer days.† Grin

If it makes you feel any better, itís supposed to drop into the low 30ís tonight before being back in the 60ís next week.  It was so cold today that I had to wear a sweater with my sandals 🥶

The folks over on Discord wanted to do a little slinging competition of their own, so weíve been shooting 30-shot rounds.   I guess itís not that surprising that the best scores so far are from South Texas, Australia (where itís summer), and the central California coast.  Everyone else is too cold!

Well I donít think itíll tide you over for the next month and a half Joe, but hereís another ten minutes of slinging thatís turned into a fun little competition this week:

Target: Diana (50cm round plate)
# of shots: 10
League #: Each numeral is an increment of 10m. e.g League I is 10m, League II is 20m, etc.
# of Stars (*): Represents each hit, up to 5 hits
# of Plusses (+): Represents any subsequent hits, beyond 5 hits

For example, 7/10 hits at 20m would be League II *****++ or Lg.II 5*2+ (for short)

Everyone starts at League I, and in order to progress to the next league, you must first get 5 stars (5 hits on the target) out of your 10 shots. This principle is the same for each league as you progress.
- Plusses (extra hits) are for bragging rights.
- The 10 shot sequence can be cherry picked.

I think it looks pretty good AA.  A question and a comment.

I assume a regular balearic target is fine to use, but obviously only diana hits are of any value.  Is that correct?

And I would just go with the short version of the ranking.  I think it looks better.

Yes that's right, only the Diana hits count. Makes sense to me for three main reasons: It's a well established sling target, it's roughly torso sized (military history interest), and it's also a relatively portable target.
Yes and the shortened version of the rank is certainly quicker to read...

I think using the normal scoring system shows more of the round


League 1: 5*2+

Could be.
17+7
16+7
15+7
14+7

But I do like the Diana only thing for use in different areas.
A Diana is much more portable than a whole target.

Well in this case, anything that is not a 'diana' is a miss.
Could have a system that ranks your best stats for the full Balearic target, but it's very restrictive. Anyone that wants to use stones would have real problems lugging around that giant, 1/1/4" thick plywood board. You'd have to have your own range.
But I think Diana on it's own is better for this, as hitting it is a precise and practical shot. You wouldn't get one point for a near miss at a charging hoplite, other than one spear point... Grin
