World basketball 3 point shooting contest open to anyone anywhere

September 05, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
There is a contest sponsored by Argyle Leasing Company in Cramerton, NC for anyone in the world to compete in the first ever world three point shooting contest. The winner will receive a prize of $10,000 or possibly even more, depending on participation.

In basketball, there is no record kept of the most consecutive three point shots hit from the non-professional distance of 19 feet, nine inches. The contest is intended to establish one but not in any type of game situation.

There are no age restrictions for this event. Anyone from anywhere in the world may participate by using any kind of video camera, VHS or digital, if taped properly. Each participant may take as much time as he or she needs to practice shooting shots from three point distance until the deadline tentatively in April of next year. The person who hits the most consecutive shots on camera and follows the rules to the letter will be able to make the claim as the world's best three point shooter and win the prize. The entry fee is five dollars.

Brett Winstead is the managing director of Argyle Leasing company, which runs an online business. He is the overseer and chairman of the event.
