Went to an archery compitition in foot hills of the Himilayas and on the way there (with sling in pocket) I was thinking "bet I could hit their silly target with my sling."  Then, emerging from the capsicum plants I saw it.  The afore mentioned target was like a salad plate set at 130 yards.  After much fanfare which included drinking heavily from the intoxicating contents of copper grog bowl visible to the left, the competition began.  There are few things more attention grabbing than a pack of tipsy archers firing at a target less than 15 feet from where you are sitting.  In fact the only thing that I can think of that would be more attention grabbing would be a sling competition under similar circumstances.
