Blame this madness on Mad Irish Jack. He didn't think the last contest was hard enough so he came up with the idea for this one. Kinda the same but turned inside out! The target will be a 8.5 x 11" sheet of typing/printer paper with an X drawn thru the center from corner to corner. You will take 4 shots at the target, offhand, at 25 yards. The object of the game is to place one shot in each of the 4 sections, as close to center of the X as possible, without hitting the X. Any shot where there is a line that is cut will incur a 2" penalty. A dead center shot cuts all 4 lines and will incur an 8" penalty! :shocked2: Placing more than one shot in the same section will incur a 4" penalty for each ball over one. Take 4 Shots, one at each section of an 8.5" x 11" sheet of typing/printer paper with an X drawn thru the center, at 25 yards. Try to place each shot as close to the center as possible without cutting any lines. Each shot will be measured from center of target to center of hole. These 4 measurements will be added together, plus any penalties, for your score. One target entry per member. 4 shots per target. Mutilated targets and targets with more than 4 holes will be disqualified. No do-overs. Only registered forum members may participate. Only traditional, open iron sighted muzzleloading rifles (NO Cannons). Percussion or flintlock ignition. (you can use a smoothbore or pistol if you would like) Single patched round ball only.

No copies, faxes, scans, etc. The center of the target will be determined by the judge. Judges decisions are final. Each contestant's score will be posted at the end of the contest.
