Default Traditional FSC Week 2/ 2019

Picture of set-up is almost self-explanatory. (next post)

Shoot 3 arrows -- any stance-- from 15 yards (7 for kids), trying to get 1st arrow in cardboard tube on the left; 2nd arrow is shot at the tube on the right. If you get the first two arrows in the tubes, then, shoot the 3rd arrow at the dot in the middle and measure nearest part of shaft to nearest part of dot as a tie-breaker. If you don't get the first two arrows in their respective tubes, then shoot the 3rd arrow at the right-hand tube.

Measure misses from nearest shaft edge to nearest part of intended tube for a 3-arrow total in case no one hits inside tube.

You can try this up to three times over three days, using the first three shots of each day.




Least arrows used to hit two tubes wins the call for next week. Good luck and have fun!



Here's the set up:
(That's a paper towel roll cut in half, flanged, and taped down to be fairly perpendicular to 8.5x11 paper taped on cardboard for easier re-use.)


(Will add pic in a minute with phone edit.)

Target looks like the deadly section of a fem-bot.

With Briar's Fem-bot image fresh in the mind's eye, I went out and shot.

Of course, I created my own judging quandary. First shot was fine but a tad low (1-3/16"); second shot hit the outside of right-hand tube at the base to actually impact inside the cylinder. I'm ruling against that being a "tube" hit because it didn't enter the front end of the tube. I will call it -1/4" from the tube side. The third arrow was left of the intended RH tube by 3-3/8".

So, Day 1: no tube hits, with total miss measurement of: 4-5/16" (1-3/16" + 3-3/8" -1/4").

This raises the issue of which tube to shoot at if you miss LH tube with #1, then hit RH tube with #2? In that case, shoot at LH tube with arrow #3. Clear?

Thanks, Reb!

Have to say, I was a little thrown off by the way the second arrow hit, leading to some loss of focus on the third shot. Good news is that it allows for clarification that for a "tube" shot, an arrow needs to enter the front opening of the tube. Now, if it does that but sticks out of the side as it hits, it WILL count as a tube hit.

Just shot after work. Kind of like 'em: got the RH tube with the 2nd shot; was 3/8" just high on 1st shot at LH tube; 3rd shot was 1-7/8" right of LH tube.
So, on Day 2: 1 tube, with a miss total of 2-1/8".

Thanks. I got out there, and couldn't remember.
Was it 3rd shot at the dot, or at the tube? When do I shoot at the dot? Etc, Etc.

Thank goodness I had connection to my wifi, and pulled it up on my phone.
In this case, tube it was.

Rick: your shots are fine. I mentioned in a post after the initial rules were laid out that -- if you get in the RH tube with a second shot -- go ahead back to the LH tube for the third shot. The reason for that would be to try and get an arrow in each tube out of one three-arrow effort -- and also to avoid damaging arrows. The measuring aspect is just for misses, and those would be measured to their intended tube, which you did. The dot would only be shot if each of the first two arrows hit inside the tubes.

You still get full credit for: one tube hit, with a total of 1-3/32" of "miss" distance.

Here's my Day 3 round: no tubes, but I don't hate the shots. Total miss distance: 2-11/16" (1-1/8", 1-5/16", 1/4")

So my Day 2 score was best (1 tube hit, with a miss total of 2-1/8")

I'm done, but shot for fun to see how many arrows it would take to hit in both tubes. Got the first one in. Six more wasn't quite enough to get exactly into the front of the RH tube, but might have been if other arrows were not crimping tube.

Kind of fun to shoot at, I think!

Pics to follow.

Good shooting Yall! I shot two days ago RH and it was horrible...not worth a pic or measure. Today LH wasnt much better. My form is seemingly variable...somewhere. First shot of today is closest to left tube...then the wheels fell off.

Alright, y'all: all day to shoot this. Rick leads so far with a round that includes One tube hit, with a miss-distance total of 1-3/32".

Only takes one try at this; you don't have to shoot it for three days. Git er done!

I'm out. Left my target up on the bale, and the rain/wind destroyed it.

Ok, so the leader is in the clubhouse, with the posted score of one tube hit, with a total miss distance of the other two arrows at 1-3/32"

Just hit two tubes, or one tube with a miss-total distance of less than 1-3/32", and you'll win!

Doesn't matter if you've shot this up til now. Only counting one best round (had up to three days to try).

Also, been meaning to compliment Rick on the design of his target. Definitely wins the style award for the clean execution of the tubes-through-paper.

Thanks.

Super glue is your friend, especially the DAP Rapid Fuse super glue.

I use that stuff for everything now days, including fletching arrows, and it's awesome.

I didn't go through the paper, I just glued the tubes directly to it.
