ESSE Contest Results, and the winner is...

Thank you everybody for participating!  I have been both encouraged and insulted by most of your guesses. :) The guesses were as follows:

Kevin: 2... thanks a lot Kevin...
Mark: 3... you've actually seen me sling so you know...
Ben W: 13
Karagan: 13
Patrick: 17
Patti: 18
Kirk: 19
Matt: 20
Chris: 20...you and Matt clearly haven't seen me sling

In the end, I shot 11 out of 24... and if you counted the ones that were very close...(which I didn't) I would have shot 13 exactly so congrats Karagan and Ben, your slings are on their way! Thanks again everybody!

The location of the Egg Slinging Extravaganza is this little red roofed barn in the center of the this picture.  On another note, this slingame site was just a ten minute walk away from a stone on stone masonry iron smelting furnace that went bankrupt sometime in the late 1800s.  You can still find olivine slag in the woods surrounding it. 



Free Sling Contest Announced!

The facts: Twenty four eggs were slung at a circular target ~6 feet in diameter at 20 paces. It's the barely visible circle scratched onto the side of the barn.

Your job: Follow SlingMoore and guess how many eggs out of twenty four hit the target. Email me at slingmoore@gmail.com

My job: To send a free sling to the closest guesser or guessers.

I'll give you a hint, it's not zero, and it's not 24... rather... somewhere in between.


This weekend in Fitchburg KY

This weekend April 9-11 Sling Moore will be having it's first annual Egg Slinging Spectacular of Easter. Posterity will likely be laughing at me, but will have to remember this event as the ESSE. Many videos and pictures will be taken, and I will be holding SlingMoore's first-ever contest. The contest is open to all of SlingMoore's followers (old and new) to see who can guess my firing percentage out of 24 throws at a circular target 3 feet in diameter (~27 square feet), at 20 paces (~50 ft) from the target. The follower(s) with the correct or closest guess will be awarded a free sling, in the event of having several winning guesses, both will receive slings! Send your "how many hits out of 24 eggs slung" guesses to slingmoore@gmail.com, I'll see you in Fitchburg.
