June Postal Match
« on: June 03, 2024, 08:17:59 PM »
Good morning fellow shooters.
I'm sad to tell you that I cannot sponsor June's Postal Match.  I am Booshway of our annual Black Powder Rendezvous here in Prince George, at the end of this month, and I just have too much to do to get ready for that event, to sponsor ALR's June match too.
Alacran, if you would be so kind to take on the task, or find a volunteer to do so. I should be very much obliged.  The Postal Match has continued non-stop for several years now, and I don't want to be the one to shut it down, but I know my limitations and honestly cannot provide the time to do it justice.  Again, my apologies.

Sorry that you can't run the match Taylor.
I think though that Okabow should be the one running June's match. He was the only other competitor to submit a score.
My score did not count. Plus I'm curious to see what hateful target Okabow has in store for us.
If Okabow is unable to run the match  then I will.

5 shots offhand, 25 yards closest score to 50 wins. Center counts 20 points. Use any muzzleloader.

You can go over 50. Closest to 50 under or over. All the wedges are scored as they are numbered. The green and red bars score the same as the wedges they are in. If you randomly shoot 5 shots into the wedges without hitting the center; the average would be about 50. A perfectly centered line hit will score the higher number. Shoot up to 4 targets.

No shots outside the circle will be counted toward the 5 shots. Must have 5 shots that score.

Is it scored like a dart board other then bullseye being 20 instead of 50, and we are trying to get a combination close to 50 and not bust, or could someone scoring over 50 but still closest to 50 win? 51 for example?

Great target Okabow. So the bull is 20 points and all other fields are the numbers on the perimeter.?

Nice target , hopefully I can get around to shooting this for my first submission. One question ,  for example if you score 50 with 3 shots can you shoot the other 2 outside the scoring range as long as it is on paper?

Took awhile to find it. Look under "Fun Targets" it is at the bottom of page 3. Finally am getting my life back together and if i can find the time after going on my bear hunt in Idaho I will jump in.

Looks like a target for a small caliber gun, don't want to paint outside the lines.

Centre ball, I assume. I suppose where the centre of that ball is, is the score attested for that shot.
Easy to cut 4 lines on that target with a proper target rifle. ::)

I have 3 targets printed. Probably won't be able to shoot them till I come back from Friendship.

I got out today. It was a comedy of errors but I had one shot on #2 that went where it was actually needed and intended. Somehow :o

Well, I was going to give this a try tomorrow, but your no.2 looks to score an even 50.

With all the numerical possibilities, what is used for tie breaker?

I thought about what would be a good tie breaker, but didnít post it yet. I thought the highest score for one shot would do. If still a tie; the two highest shots.
Great score on #2. 50/17, 38/17 on #1.

On Dan's first target  one ball appears to perfectly intersect the 6 and 13 line. Thus, would it not score both values?
That being the "case" that target appears to score 51/50.

I see Danís first target as a 38/17. 38 total points and 17 for the high score. His second target scores 50 total points with 17 as the tie breaker. Someone could still beat him with a 50 and a higher hit than 17.
