And the winner is… (drum roll please) Now did you really think we would give it away that quickly? This month’s “Thinker’s Target” involved some shooting strategy. Shooters got 11 shots with which to hit 11 circles arranged in order of descending size. As each target got progressively smaller, the point value increased. Shooters had to shoot the targets in order, successfully penetrating the previous target before proceeding to the next. If the shooter missed the designated target and hit a smaller, higher point value one accidentally, that hit and points did not count. After a successful hit, shooters then moved on to the next smaller target. Shooters had the option to continue accruing points by repeatedly shooting the target they were on. For example, you hit the 1 point, 5 point, 10 point, and 15 point target, but did not think you could reliably hit the 20 point target, you were allowed to stop and continue to shoot at the 15 point target with your remaining rounds. However, the targets sent in show that this group of shooters chose to move on to the next smaller size, higher point target.
