Pea Shoot­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

PEA shoot­ing is the act of shoot­ing dried peas out of a tube, a pea shooter, by blow­ing through it. A sim­i­lar ef­fect can be achieved by us­ing small bits of pa­per in­stead of peas. A sport has de­vel­oped around pea shoot­ing, in which peas are shot into a tar­get, sim­i­lar to those used for archery. The tar­get may be made of putty so the peas will stick to it or at least make in­den­ta­tions that eas­ily iden­tify the lo­ca­tion of the hit. The com­pe­ti­tion tends to be dom­i­nated by lo­cal en­trants, though a small num­ber travel from around the world, notably the USA, and Amer­i­can per­son­nel from the nearby US air­bases of RAF Milden­hall and RAF Lak­en­heath have com­peted.
