PURPOSE

The planet is being attacked by UFO's. Your mission is to knock down and destroy as many UFO's as possible in 60 seconds by throwing the foam ball from behind the line and knocking the discs off the cones.

HOW IT WORKS


On the start signal, throw the foam ball at the cones and discs.  After you throw the ball, run and get it, return to the throwing line, and then throw again.  Continue for 1 full minute.

If you knock all 8 discs off of the cones, you can reset the discs and then move back to the line to attempt more throws. Don’t forget to count the number of ‘space invaders’ you destroy
