World Pointing Championship?

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2001-05-11

Now that there's an "official" Shooting Championship, what about a Pointing one as well? Are there any plans? If not, let's make them here! What's the procedure to get such things formally adopted?
Take part in thediscussion in the forum!

Some ideas, for comment, improvement, etc:

1. Rolling, half-lob and full-lob into a circle at various distances.
2. Spinning around an obstacle to get into the target circle.
3. Promoting a boule from outside the circle into the circle.
4. Promoting the coche, e.g. the coche is between 2 boules on the edge of the circle, you must point and promote the coche into the circle.
5. Can't think of one - over to you!

There should probably be an inner and outer circle, 25 and 50cm.

Problem: how do you ensure any sort of consistent surface?

Any opinions?
