This shoot is pulled from the old Atlantian Seasonal Challenge. It is simply a fun shoot which forces you to weigh your skills versus the risk you wish to take. The highest points are the closest to the highest negative points.
Please read the SSAC General Rules, as these apply to all SSAC shoots. Below are the additional rules for this specific shoot.
Take a standard FITA 60cm target, use a compass, draw two half-circles to make an `S` curve that stretches from top to bottom of the target`s scoring area:
- Draw a half-circle that connects the top edge of the 1-ring with the center of the bullseye (set the static end of your compass in the middle of the 3-ring). This is the top of your S-curve.
- Now draw a half-circle that connects the center of the bullseye to the to the bottom edge (set the static end of your compass in the middle of the 3-ring). This is the bottom of your S-curve.
- Use a marker to make the S more visible from 20 yards.
If you have drawn it correctly, you should see a large capital S overlayed on the target`s scoring area.
The S-curve creates the Yin and Yang areas of the target. The Yin is the upper/right area of the target. The Yang is the lower/left area of the target.
Note: When shooting with a large group of archers it is allowed to have half of the group reverse the order of the Yin/Yang components at each range, but it should be the same group of archers who shoot the Yang first at each range.
- The challenge consists of 4 ends.
- Scores CAN go below zero. Your final score may be negative.
- Arrows that break or just touch the dividing line between scoring zones are scored in the archer`s favor.
- Archers must shoot the ends in the order listed.*
The two Timed ends are shot back to back at 20 yards.
The two Un-timed ends are shot back to back at 30 yards.
Standard RR scoring, but with negative values for hitting the "Foe" side.
Yes, your total for any given end *can* be negative!

For the two Yang ends, the scoring values are flipped - the upper/right area is now negative, the lower/left area is positive.
