Online tourney - WEEK 2
« on: January 06, 2008, 01:20:00 PM »
alright week 1 is gona and past. We had a great turnout of 60 people. Hope we don't drop a single person, even though I know we wiil. Here is week 2 nothing really has changed since week 1.

Guys, if you didn't sign up don't just post your target. There was a sign up that ran Nov. through middle of Dec. and another 2 weeks after that was a list of people to make sure I didn't miss anyone. When you just post your target for the hell of it you make it really hard to find and score the peoples targets who signed up. Not to mention me having to locate your name on the list..only to find out it's not there. If you want in wait till the next one. Sorry I have to be this way, but dang it that's the way it is  


• Alright this is week 2 of a 5 week series. The rules below are the final rules, and if you need any clarification please PM me. If your question is something I left out of the rules I will modify them. I will post any modifications in bold.

• You may shoot your first target using 5 arrows. Post your target with your screen name (the one you signed up with) and your score WRITTEN ON THE TARGEt. All targets are to be posted by 12:00 Noon Sunday, Jan 13, 2008.

1. Any bow longbow or recurve – No Sights what so ever.
2. No arrow restrictions….carbon, wood, aluminum, cane….etc…are OK
3. A cut line gets rounded up
4. An “X” is a 12 everything else is as marked
5. Targets must be turned in by Sunday 12:00 PM (Noon)
6. You cannot shoot all 5 targets in one week and turn them in one at a time or all at one time
7. You may practice/warm up before shooting your target
8. If more then 5 arrow holes appear in your target your weeks target will be a zero, or you will be asked to reshoot that week.
9. Targets will be shot at a distance of 15 yards or 45 feet
10. Everyone will shoot this Target no exceptions
     http://www.uspalma.com/Targets/PDFs/200%20reduced%20for%20100.pdf      
11. WRITE YOUR SCREEN NAME AND SCORE SOMEWHERE ON THE TARGET. Other information such as bow and arrow combo is OK as long name and score are there as well….Make them readable.
12. No whining, bitching, moaning, groaning, or complaining.
13. You may use a visual aid on your target. Such as an orange dot covering the X. As long as it does not obscure the line for scoring.

• We will be using this target so that everyone can print it. It will print on regular paper(8.5X11).

• Best you can get is a 60 (5 arrow * 12 points = 60)

• All times I refer too are in CST/CDST

Hey Snag if we combine scores we could POSSIBLY beat Jenkins.   Either that or get'em loose and put him in the wall.   :jumper:

Here's week two.  I have a tendency to shoot high on my first shot or shots this close in.    :knothead:   Hopefully this little tournament will help.  Joe

Just envious of his shooting. Someone has to raise the bar so the rest of use can try and pull ourselves up by it!

My biggest problem shooting is concentration or focus. Now there are plenty of other problems, but this little shoot has me really trying to focus on each shot.

Thanks Jeff for setting this up. I'm really enjoying it.

It doesn't matter how or what you shoot, as long as you hit your target.

Dang, you guys are putting on the pressure early...LOL  I'd better shake this flu bug and get out there and practice a bit.
Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

Hey guys, I don't no about others, but I feel that I may be shooting a little over my head. It may be the rush of the competition. Hope it keeps up.
