    In the past, I have run a couple of Old Guy vs. Young Guy contests. These were fun and popular.
    Well, I just realized that as of May 31st I will be 50 years old.
    I'll be an OLD GUY! :shocked2:
    Since this will be my last chance to be the Captain of the Young Guys team, we are going to have another Old Guys vs. Young Guys contest this month.
    Dave, 58 caliber, has graciously agreed to be the Captain of the Old Guys team.

    This is a team shoot. Everyone who is 50 or over on May 1st is an Old Guy. Everyone younger than 50 on May 1st is a Young Guy.

    Click on this link and print out your target. http://www.targetprinter.com/images/pdflargenumberedbullseye.pdf

    Take 5 shots at your target at a distance of 50 yards, offhand, and send it to your team Captain. Each shot will score according to the ring in which the center of the ball hits. If the center of the ball is on a line the higher score will be counted.

    The team Captains will score the targets for their respective teams. All scores for each team will be averaged and the team Captains will confer. The team with the highest average score will be declared the winners.

    One target entry per member.

    5 shots per target, hit or miss.

    Mutilated targets and targets with more than 5 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.

    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 (seated is allowed for members who are unable to stand), 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 each shot and the proper measurements on the target will be determined by the judge.

    Judges decisions are final.

    Each team'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 June 5, 2016 to;

    Captain of the Old Guys team,
    Dave Marsh
    1808 Allen Glen Rd
    Owego, NY 13827

    Captain of the Young Guys team,
    Jim Green
    P.O.Box 322
    Pekin, IL 61555


    Targets will not be returned unless an S.A.S.E. is included.


    Be safe and have fun! :hatsoff:

    I am probably going to catch much flack for this, but I honestly get nauseous just thinking about how I recently turned 36... :(


    Awhile back, I had an older gentleman (90 if he was a day) moan and groan about his age. Being the smart aleck that I was at the time, I told him : "you're only as old as you feel". :grin:

    To which he responded: "Then I must have died two weeks ago!"
