Online Tourny - WEEK 1
« on: December 31, 2007, 08:15:00 PM »
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  :knothead:  


•   Alright this is week 1 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 6, 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 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
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).
      http://www.uspalma.com/Targets/PDFs/200%20reduced%20for%20100.pdf        

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

•   All times I refer too are in CST/CDST

Arghhh.  I'm in the middle of trying to tune some new arrows....now to decide to shoot the old woodies or try the new heavy weighted carbons (of course I only have on fletched!).  This'll be fun!  Happy New Year, all.

Are you guys pulling your arrows after each shot or shooting all five then puling them?

Ok time for a newbie (dumb) question. If I hit the paper outside the 8 ring is that a 7 or a 0?

Ok so I took 2 warm up shots and missed the target completely. I did manage to put 2 holes in my 100 foot garden hose. Does this count for extra points? Then I taped the bullseye on the target and shot these 5. Beginners luck for me.

It will be fun to see the targets- but I'm thinking a new thread for each week, so it doesn't take an hour to load all the pics??
I'll be shooting mine tonight- have fun all.
