    Was just curious with all the rounds of ammo going off at a slingshot Competition
    Just how much damage is done when it happens indoors? How do you guys convince them before hand to use the space? Do you need to go to City Hall first to get permission ? Is there information on how to go about having a slingshot competition? Is there lots of drama between last years 1st 2nd and 3rd place guys the upcoming year? We always hear about the great stories of people attending slingshot comps. Has there been any horror stories of peoples experiences?
    I only cared to ask the first question but more thoughts kept coming up sorry.

      Well in pa they put catch boxed on one end of the room you get a bounce back now an then but no troubles .
      As for 1st 2nd all that stuff is secondary to seeing an being with everyone ive never seen any animosity or anger from or toward anyone all huges an hand shakes

      Slingshot people are the best people.

      An who in there right mind would cock an attitude with 60 peaple packin slingshots?

      Damage? Very little. It's fairly easy to contain the ammo within a safe enclosure - especially if the shooters are fairly repsonsible. Of course the enclosure system has to be well thought out. If it is, you can win the confidence of venue operators.
      The top slingshooters I've observed are very competitive, but like top runners, every outing's first goal is to beat your personal best. That will assure a top finish.
      The final rounds are closely watched by most of the competors, and my sense is virtually everyone wants to see people do their best.
      And yes, it is a great environment!

      Inside - be careful of newbies who cannot even hit the catchbox.

      Sounds like a personal experience. Is there a story to go with it?

      Hippy and I have watched a newbie fork hit Hippy's brass Moorehammer at ECST. Smashed up the roof overhead.
