Just as a heads up, Sylvain isn't on the forum.  I told him I could sign him up but he declined for the moment.  I'll keep on him until he says yes.  Wink

Here is my entry. Not very good as I didn't actually get it, but it was a fun challenge.

Having to time your wind up to match the eggs' motion is one of the hardest parts of this challenge and something that I just wasn't working that hard to figure out. I'll have to come up with a better method next time. I knew that when they were out at the extreme position, that was the best time to release, as they would come back to the middle by the time the ball got to the eggs, but timing that was just too much to ask with a 3 spin wind up. Maybe something like greek style would be better suited. Also, maybe I'll put them closer together next time so the transit time between eggs doesn't matter as much and if the first egg deflects the ball a bit, it also won't matter as much.

I wanted to put more time into it, but just couldn't seem to get the free time I needed to give it a real good effort.

Yeah, something without a rotor could make it easier.  Or don't have a set spin count.  I know for mine I get the rotor started and go into the actual throw when the time is right.  Whether it's 2, 3, or 5+ spins, I'll wait for the throw.


Good attempt Squirrel!  A pendulum is definitely a tough target.  And when the target point is as small as an egg, that steps up the difficulty that much more.  The pendulum is my favorite trick shot target by far though.  It's been awesome to see a couple others for this challenge!
