A.I.M.
Slingshot Competition

Event Information


Putnam Parks & Pathways’ inaugural slingshot competition, A.I.M. (Amazing Indiana Marksmanship), is taking place June 28-30 at Greencastle’s Jaycee Park.

A.I.M. is a three-day affair that challenges competitors to four tournament events and two ticket events.

Tournament Events are played for score and include a Woods Course, Speed Shoot, Paper Plate Shoot, and World Cup Knock Down. Individuals will be able to compete at their discretion throughout Friday and Saturday. A more detailed schedule can be found below.

Ticket Events give two participants the chance to wager their tickets in a winner-takes-all contest of skill. These tickets can then be used to enter raffles at the end of the tournament. Tournament events will be available as ticket events after being played for score.

Registration for the event can be completed online or in-person at the tournament. The adult entry fee is $40, kids 12 and under are $20, and spectators can watch for free.
