Ok Jethro, I'm game to try it again. Didn't do too bad on the first round with the third shortest measurement. :grin: Have to say congratulations to HFD 60 :v for his win. He really put em in there. Have to work it around Friendship, but got all month, so that shouldn't be too bad. Now, have to decide what to shoot. :confused:

Count me in as well! We out here in Winton, CA move up in social status the better we do in shootin' contests! :rotf:

Well, yes they have several 25 yd. lines at Friendship, but they kind of discourage posting targets other than the match targets they sell you. :nono: Besides I will be pretty busy with other things there, so either may shoot this week, or after I get back. Hope to see ya there. :thumbsup:

Hello from Germany;

I'll be in too. Have a question about measuring. I measure out the distance from each hole to the dot and then ad the three together?

Regards

That is correct. Measure each shot from center of hole to center of dot then add all 3 together for your score.
Good luck. :hatsoff:

Well I got it done but I don't want all you other fellas laying awake all night worrying about how well I did. I'll just say this, whatever I was shooting at would have been real dead.......as long as it was bigger than a quarter.
