    Adui has requested that I post another contest for him so, here it is.

    Remember, All of this is Audi's work so don't ask me about the rules. :grin:
    -------------------------------------------------

    For my second contest, I'm going to resurrect my first tourney idea sent to Jethro and posted in Feb of 2016.

    See below:

    Golf with roundballs!

    Target can be found here:

    http://www.targets.ws/shooting-targets/golf-target-1.pdf


    The score is whatever number area the shot hits, lowest score wins.

    ...A hit outside the "green" (target image) counts as 3 points. Anything completely off paper is 4 points.

    Click the link to the PDF file above and print your target on an 8.5"x 11" sheet of typing/printer paper.

    Take 2 Shots at the "green" you print out at 25 yards. Try to put your balls in the holes. If you miss, do not try again. Misses count!

    One target entry per member.

    2 shots per target, hit or miss.

    Mutilated targets and targets with more than 2 holes will be disqualified.

    No do-overs.

    Only registered forum members may participate.

    Only traditional, open iron sighted muzzleloading firearms (NO Cannons). Percussion or flintlock ignition. Cap and Ball revolvers are OK.

    Single patched round ball only. No restrictions on caliber. (a patchless ball may be used if so desired)

    Shots will be taken off-hand at the stated distance.(Standing or seated is allowed, elbows unsupported by anything other than the shooters torso)(In the event that a member is not physically able to hold his rifle up unsupported, a "prop-rod" that is supported only by the shooters torso, no part of which prop-rod may touch the ground, may be used to hold up the fore-end of the rifle)

    Only original targets will be accepted. No copies, faxes, scans, etc.

    The center of the shot and the placement on the "green" will be determined by the judge.

    Judges decisions are final.

    Each contestant's score will be posted at the end of the contest.

    Your member screen name must be written on your targets.


    Mail your target postmarked by March 31, 2018 to:

    Theres a question I haven't gotten before. Sure, just so the hole is either black or white. And I still need to be able to see the lines to discern the boundaries

    That was a fun one. With only 2 shots you cant "make up for it" with three more shots in the bull.

    Um, no I think one target per contest is good. Otherwise I might be scoring 100 or more sheets with the collections you all have :haha:

    I stole your idea with this target. We're doing a small camp with friends next week and I'm putting on a match with this one.

    Winner gets a bottle of my nearly world famous homemade wine.

    Last month shoot got away from me with the weather and work not allowing me any daylight to shoot. So today was my first opportunity and I went "golfing". My Target will be in the mail Monday.

    Thanks Audi for keeping these shoots going. I want to contribute my part to global warming by burning a little powder.

    I'm planning to go golfing Tuesday. I tried the one with clubs ONCE. Too much money and no smoke or noise.
