A big thank you to everyone who took part in the Xmas Fun Shoot. We shot a 60 arrow round on a 60cm face but before every half dozen arrows a new scoring rule was randomly selected. It made for some very interesting scoresheets that would spoil the sleep of our Records Officer!

Here’s a selection:
1. Only odds score
2. Only evens score
3. Reverse (10:1, 9:2, 8:3, 7:4, 6:5, 5:6, 4:7, 3:8, 2:9, 1:10)
4. Golds and blues deduct from score.
5. Double for line cutters.
6. Line cutters are zero.
7. 10 ring -50
8. Only black and white score
9. Run: 3 arrows in sequential rings scores double
10. Flush: 3 same colour scores double
11. 3 of a kind: 3 in the same ring scores double
12. Pontoon: Any score over 21 is forfeit

The round was shot as one group with all bow types together but the rules levelled the playing field well and made for many surprises! Congratulations to Sheila on her win. Billy seemed to have problems avoiding that nasty 10 ring when the -50 penalty was in play!
