Banz's Bull Switch Challenge
Banz's Bull Switch


A key skill in 501 is the ability to switch to the bullseye with your third dart.

This could be for a bullseye finish or to use the 25 to improve your setup.

Banz's Bull Switch Challenge aims to test this skill...



The Rules

You have 5 visits. 

Throw the first two darts of each visit at the scoring segment of your choice
That is, 20's, 19's or anything but not the bullseye.
It doesn't really matter where the first two darts land. 

Throw the third dart at the bullseye. 
If you hit the bullseye AKA double bull then score 2 points. 
If you hit the outer bull then score 1 point. 
The maximum score is 10 points. 



9 or 10 points - Gold Bull Switcher

Another good challenge, nice one Banz. :thumbup:

Gave it a go and managed 2 Bulls and two 25's for a total of 6.

Will have another run at again I'm sure.

Never a good idea to get the brain involved but what can you do! Great start though.
