Default Traditional FSC Week 26

Aim small, miss small!

This week, fold a 8.5x11 sheet of paper in half both horizontally and vertically and draw a line down the creases dividing your paper into 4 equally sized quadrants. Number the quadrants as such: top left #1, top right #2, bottom left #3, and bottom right #4. On day 1 we will shoot at the #1 quadrant and if we hit it, we will graduate to quadrant 2 on day 2. If we miss on day 1, we will continue to shoot at quadrant 1 until we have hit it. We will shoot our first shot of the day at the lowest number we have yet to hit. The winner will be the farthest along in the process by day 5. If there is a tie, winner will be determined by a shoot off with one final shot being shot at the intersection of all the quadrants (dead center of paper) and closest arrow wins the call. Shots will be taken at 15 yards every day.

Good luck!

Another day, another miss.

Trying to get used to this new bow and still recording my first shot of the day has proven to be a rather unproductive endeavor.

Good shooting fellas.

On day 2 of the competition, Texas Rebel messaged me and asked for a rule clarification. He asked if line cutters counted. I told him that I should have clarified but I didn’t think about it until after the contest had begun. Since the challenge had four distinct zones, I explained that line cutters would not count.

As it closed today, Billy Jack and Mark were in contention to win it. It looks like Mark’s shot spilled over into another zone (line cutter) and therefore is not a true “hit”. It seems like Billy could have even counted day 4 as a hit if he had counted his line cutter.

Sorry I didn’t make it more plain at the beginning of the week. If I understand it correctly, Billy Jack takes the challenge this week and the call for next.
