    I had a couple ideas, but decided to go with this one, and also limit it to 10 shots. This way, you can shoot a little cheaper. Times are tough, so maybe this will allow people to try more than they would have if it had more targets. I don't remember us doing this one any the last couple years.

    Shoot the Flies!

    Rules are on the target, but:
    • Only 10 shots
    • Shoot any flies you want
    • Hit a fly in the Red Eyes = 3 Points
    • Hit a fly in any other part of the body = 1 Point
    • Hitting the eyes and body gets you the higher score of 3 Points
    • Tiebreaker = Most Eye Shots
    Have fun. Shoot often. And EVERYBODY is welcome. Don't worry if you have the highest or lowest score. Just enjoy getting out and shooting. And share the results with the rest of us!

    Well darn! I tried finding something different and that I wouldn’t have to recreate like my last few. I also tried to find one that had fairly larger targets, just in case. Tried making one a little easier with fewer shots that would entice a few more people to go for it.
    As well as you shot that last one missing by the slimmest margins, you should destroy these flies!

    It was 3 years ago. Plus, we didn’t have the red-eye bonus. It’s all good.
