- Apr 4, 2013Nothing.Randal in his earlier post brought up the reasons why the competition was changed to regular target."I wonder now why both couldn't be allowed, so that people who were willing to deal with cutting the center out of the target backing, figuring out how to support it without the center leg I see on so many butt stands, and chasing down arrows that go through the hole could do so (and how do you tell the difference between pass throughs and misses?). I also wonder whether I am just turning into a trouble maker in my old age!
Randal"The problem with telling hits from arrows that missed the target and passed by would have required something wide and high enough to block all misses from passing the target. This type of added construction would have greatly limited those willing to set up and run the competition.The original rules were not clear as to intent or how to implement the competition. So it was easier just to remove the hole. The general SSAC equipment rules are based on the IKAC rules and do not permit blunts anyway.This is why I want all competitions brought up for discussion in the future before voting on them.Jon
