Default Traditional FSC Week 31

Ellis' paper folding inspired the origami in this post. I'll call this one "Knock-Out". Take a 8x11 sheet of paper, fold it in half then in half again. Open it back up and fold it in half the other way and then in half again. Use the top and bottom left and right intersections and middle intersection to draw 5 diamonds. The points of the diamonds should be one inch from the intersection. Object is to shoot one arrow at each diamond in the order they are numbered until you have hit all of the diamonds (you don't have to shoot and pull, you can shoot however many arrows you need). Consecutive shots on a diamond are not allowed until you're down to the last one. Distance shall be 12 yards and the winner is the one who knocks out the diamonds in the least amount of shots. Tiebreaker is the least amount of distance to the center of each diamond. Hope this isn't too complicated! Here's my sheet.

So, most diamonds hit, one arrow at a time, in number order, except that you can shoot at number 5 until you hit it? And, measure distance to center 'x' on diamonds hit for tiebreaker?

Good to see you today Cody at the TBoT shoot! Congrats on your buckle!

1st arrow shot at number 1, hit or miss 2nd arrow at number 2 and so on. If you hit a diamond, skip that one on your next set through the diamond order...does that make sense? Keep going til you've hit them all.

Good to see you too. Keep me posted on how that tab works out for you.

The idea is that you're shooting at a different diamond each shot.

Aha: so keep shooting in number order, one shot per diamond until you hit each diamond. Winner will be the one who takes the least number of arrows to hit all 5 diamonds. Just in case: Measure the arrow to center of closest shot-to-diamond in case of tie?

Here's mine. It was a little more challenging than I expected. It took me 32 shots. #1- 7/16, #5- 4/16, #2- 13/16, #3- 15/16, #4- 4/16 for a total of 2 11/16. I move up to 10 yards and knocked them out in 13 but I was a little warmed by then. Good luck guys!

That's some pretty nice shots.

So, tie-breaker will only come into play if same number of arrows is required to hit all five diamonds? (But still provide measure to center of each diamond-hitting shot if same or less than 32 arrows just in case?) In other words, if it takes more than 32 shots (as posted so far) no need to even measure center distance, if I understand correctly.

O just can't talk myself into this one. Too much prep working 12 hour days. Been doing one shot at a time practice. One shot before work. One right at dark. 25 yards. Been fairly good so far but I need to start making time again for these.

Remember the Bob the Builder song: "can we fix it?, YES WE CAN!"

Just made the target: took at least 3 minutes and 47 seconds to make the folds and draw the squares/diamonds... (not sure 'cause I didn't actually time it.)

Like instinctive aiming, I guess ... it just FELT like that long.

I'll try and shoot it in a little bit.

Dang, Cody. That's harder than it seems. Thought I got #4 & #5 with shots 31 and 32, but just missed. Therefore, Cody still leads

Pic just shows last two, but each shot is numbered.

Well .... guess I'll see how many more it will take to get the last two, so there is a completion number to shoot at.

Ha! This challenge really made me realize how hard it is to hit that 12 ring...the diamonds in my opinion are pretty dang close to the size of most 12 rings.

Total of 44 shots. Got the very tip of #5 with shot 36, all around #4 until shot 44 got left corner.

#4, shot 44, 13/16"
#5, shot 36, 1"
#1, shot 22, 3/4"
#2, shot 12, 13/16"
#3, shot 13, 15/16"
Should be a Total of 4-15/16", if math right.

Just on a whim, I decided to go out and try this one. I got all five diamonds in 14 shots, and my total from center was 3 7/16.



I got 3 of them in the first 5 shots, then got stuck a bit on 3 and 5.

#1 - shot #5 - 1/2
#2 - shot #2 - 13/16
#3 - shot #12 - 3/4
#4 - shot #4 - 3/4
#5 - shot #14 - 5/8

Well, after reading the rules again, it looks like I made my diamonds a little too big. They are definitely a little bigger than 1, as I just hand drew them. Guess Im DQd!

LOL, when I saw you shot it, I knew then, that you either had figured out, or would figure out a way to try & keep you from having to make the next call.

Cody, if he wins, don't let him off the hook.

I might giver a go, but I really would like to see Bisch call a shot,
so if I were to beat him I wouldn't post it, and he'd still be stuck.

18 shots. Forgot to pay attention to which shot hit which diamond. Missed the first seven. 2 off paper. Then 3 of 5 on the next 7 and 4 to get the last 2.

The points of the diamonds should be one inch from the intersection.

That makes a 2" square/diamond.

Bisch, you're good to go.

Just dawned on me, that little hole might look suspicious to some folks.

I never gave it any thought, until I was looking at the pictures after posting them.

It was made by the nock end of an arrow in my hip quiver, when I walked up to pick up the camera from on top of the target butt.
