Virtual slinging competition
Nov 14th, 2021 at 11:58pm
 
A lot of forum members are already participating, but in case anyone has missed it, weve had a weekly virtual slinging competition going for the last 3 weeks. The more the merrier, so please join in if you can. Its a lot of fun!

The competitions are broadcast live on YouTube by Channing from Practical Paracord every Saturday:

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES! Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler

It's really fun, gentlemen! (and any lurking ladies)

I urge everyone who reads this to submit something, it is pretty quick and easy to just film yourself taking 10 shots. 2 rounds of 5. We've been using a standard balearic target (120 cm square (4ft) and 50cm diameter circle (20")), but anything can work. Then you just put the video on YouTube [u]unlisted[/u] and email the link to Channing.

There are 3 categories that we've done so far.
1. (Main event) Tennis balls at 13m.
2. Anything at 20m
3. Speed round, 13m, as many points/throws as you can in 60s.

Is this going to be ongoing?
I'm going to a retreat centre this week, but I will seek out a tennis court when I get back, and join the fray.

+1. It's been a great event.

A couple other things to note. You don't have to participate in all events. You can do just one, or any combination. Also, some times it's hard to see in the video exactly where a ball hits the target. So mention in your score (2 points for diana, 1 point for other hits) in the video to make it easy for Channing to tally the leader board.

I even joined as a co-host for the 2nd one Cheesy It's great fun and it was annoying that I hurt my ankle and couldn't join the third one. Ankle is better now though so I'll be joining again. It's good fun.

I was told about peer pressure with drugs...no one warned me about this though.

Clear your mind, Morphy.  Feel the stone.  Come sling with us.

As I click 'Post Message', I'm doing the Jedi mind trick hand gesture.  So this should totally work.

They say mind tricks only work on the weak minded Joe. .... Im In!!!

Ok, but also want to mention I want to invite Jaegoor to also join us in case hes not aware this is going on.  This seems to be the way of the future. Realistically weve actually talked about this for a few years now in passing but something odd is  going on in the slinging community. I dont know if you guys feel it but I do. Things are taking off, progressing and changing for the better. We are connecting now.

Anyways, formal invite to Jaegoor. It almost seems wrong not to have him as part of it too. It looks really fun. You WILL take part.  *mysterious hand wave*  Grin
