    Default 3D Shoots.com 5-Spot League!!!!

    I'm planning to start another league for all of us here on 3Dshoots to enjoy. My intent is to run it like the Vegas league was run. Rules will basically stay the same. I would like to run this one for 6 weeks in stead of 4 weeks. We will be using the standard 5-Spot target and shooting a complete 300 round.

    For those of you unfamiliar with this game, it consists of 12 ends of 5 arrows each for a total of 60 arrows. On the target face, each of the 5 targets has a white section and a blue section. Anything in the white is 5 points and anything in the blue is 4. There are 25 points possible each end with 5 "X"s possible. A perfect score is a 300 with 60 X's.

    For our purposes, just like the last league, X's will count as a 6 so there is actually 30 possible each end.

    If you are interested in providing prizes for any aspect of the league let me know. I will continue my dozen wraps each week. However, I will be drawing a name, from the list of participants, out of a hat to further randomize this prize.

    I thought the Vegas league was a success and I know I enjoyed both participating and running it. If you are in for this league, please post up in this thread so I can start getting a count. I'm not sure when it will start yet as I want as many involved as possible. If you have any questions or comments feel free to post them or PM me.

    Not sure when it will start, should be within a couple weeks.


    Scores must be pm'd to me by monday night at midnight each week. Then on tuesday I do the sit down portion of the league. You can shoot your score anywhere you want as long as you are shooting 20 yards. You can pm me your score anytime between the time one shoot ends on tuesday until monday midnight the next week. If you are unfamiliar with how the sit-down works, view the vegas sit-down threads in the 3dshoots.com Smack Down League forum...

    12 ends is a lot to shoot for me. I have a hard enough time finding the time to just go shoot . How bout we do it like the Smack Down League we did a few months ago and basically double the points so we are only shooting 6 ends or 30 arrows? Any takers on this?

    Oh, and if we are starting in the next week or two, can I shoot two in one week to make up for the week I will be out of town?

    The Vegas league was 10 ends..... Surely you got time for 2 more.

    That shootin half and doubling the score thing is like playing 9 holes of golf and just doubling it and calling it a round.....

    I said the Smack Down League Not the Vegas League . I didn't have time to shoot the Vegas league cuz we have all had some wierd stomach sickness the last few weeks

    If no one wants to shorten it up, I suppose I can find some time

    I'm up for it either way, and I have the same question as Wheels about being out of town and shooting a week's round in advance... I'm going to be doing some travelling and I will not be able to shoot during that time at all.

    Thanks, Ron

    You can also do the converse and shoot 6 ends and double the score that you submit, without anyone knowing it...

    Yep you could do that, but why go to the hassle of actually shooting 6 ends? Why not shoot one and multiply it by 12? Just as dishonest and much much easier......

    I don't care if you shoot ahead of time. See above. How would I know when you shot the round if you pm'd it to me during the current week?

    It doesn't take twice as long. You walk to the target and pull arrows 2 more times. What is that 5 minutes each? You shoot 2 more arrows each end. What is that 1 minute each?

    2 minutes X 10 ends = 20 min.
    5 minutes X 2 ends = 10 min.
    2 trips to bale = 10 min.

    Total extra time 40 min. if your slackin and taking your time.

    I'll run it however the majority of shooters wants it run. Shooting a half round will not improve your 5-spot scores. Endurance and concentration are important aspects of a 5 spot round. Shooting 1/2 will not help anyone wanting to condition themselves for the upcoming indoor leagues.

    However, I'm looking for participation and a good time. We can shoot 6 ends if you want. No need to double the scores as it doesn't mean much. We will just have 150 possible and 30 Xs.
