Boomerang News #45 - 1/98
Cover Story : 1997 Turkey Toss in Michigan by Norm Kern (with photos)
For the first time in U.S. history, a single competition included events for both returning boomerangs and non-returning kylies (hunting sticks). The 22 contestants featured throwers from both coasts with Will Herlan representing Washington State, and Paul Sprague representing Connecticut. As always there was a strong contingent of throwers (Broadbents and friends) from Ohio. Last year's champ Jeff Heinrichs faithfully returned the traveling Turkey trophy to see who would take it home for the next year. This year's trophy arsenal was enlarged to include a traveling trophy for the 12 and under Junior division. The winds were low but the mist made things interesting.
The returning boomerang events, run according to the USBA Super Novice rules, were fast throw and trick catch. Fast throw had Ted Bailey, Gary Broadbent Sr., Jeff Heinrichs, and Will Herlan under 30 seconds. Trick catch featured Gary Broadbent Sr. making 7 foot catches and a behind the back for 75 points. Jeff Heinrichs, Paul Sprague and Tim Davis all scored over 40 points.
The kylie events were Waki-Klak featuring a finely crafted turkey target built by the Sprague brothers and You-Miss-You-Out, using a new flexible target build by Tom Luczycki. Last year Norm's PVC pipe target took such a beating, Tom took mercy and engineering a much better one. Norm Kern jumped to an early lead in Waki-Klak which he held by hitting the turkey on the first 2 rounds and scoring in 6 frames. Jeff Heinrichs was pointless until round 7 of 10 but he came on strong with 2 turkey hits and 3 strong accuracy results. Third place went to young Nate Harbowy with 2 turkey hits and accuracy points in 3 frames. Ted Bailey took 4th with 2 turkey strikes and a couple of accuracy points. In You-Miss-You-Out, only 12 throwers hit the 4 x 5 target at 20 meters. Of these, only 5 hit at 30 meters, and only Norm Kern hit at 40 meters. Both kylie events included the extra drama of tie breakers.
Although he did not win any events, Jeff Heinrichs won the tournament with consistent high placing. Gary Broadbent Sr. took second with his first and second in the returning events. Norm Kern took third based on his wins in both kylie events. The Junior champ was Jeremiah Davis with 2nd places in the returning events, Waki-Klak and a win in YMYO. Second place went to Nate Harbowy with only a single point difference behind Jeremiah. Third through fifth went to Matt Solomon, Logan Broadbent, and Kent Sprague.
As the final scores were being totaled many of the throwers enjoyed an unofficial distance event, and Jim Gilligan demonstrated his Atlatl (Woomera, spear thrower). Even with 4 events, we started at 10:30 and were off the field by 1:30. - Norm Kern

Carl Morris had his 35th birthday this past December. His wife made him a cake shaped shaped like a small traditional boomerang with a 12" span. She even carved left-handed airfoils into it. For the blank, she used carrot cake and finished it with a coconut/walnut glaze finish. Yumm!!

They plan to make it an annual affair as Lorin visits his brother in Arizona each year.

Steven Graham is an Elementary Art Teacher from Bartlesville, Oklahoma who makes and throws boomerangs as a hobby. He is totally immersed in the sport and has given talks on boomerangs to many organizations. His boomerangs are featured in Bartlesville's Smart Toys store. The editor recently sampled the 13" Super Loop omega boomerang pictured below. This boomerang is of top quality construction, made with 5 ply Finnish Birch plywood and painted with RC airplane paint, lettered with calligraphy and double coated with high gloss polyurethane. The Super Loop is attractively priced at only $16. A Super Loop Pro model, made out of 10 ply 5mm Birch is also available at a price of $25. A light version of the Super Loop is available at just $8. The editor gave the standard Super Loop a test throw and found it to be an incredibly easy boomerang to throw and catch. It has a 30± metre range. This boomerang is a terrific sports boomerang for a thrower aged 16 or above. Steven has 4 additional boomerangs in his catalog priced from $16 to $50.
Not pictured in Steven's catalog is a fun little cross stick that he teaches his students to make out of paint sticks which are donated by the local Wal-Mart store. Steven carves airfoils into the upper surface of each paint stick and then joins two together with rubber bands. These work remarkable well and have a range of about 10 metres. Ask about these when you write to request a catalog. For more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org call (918)-333-0730 or write to:

Congratulations to Michael Girvin for winning the "MHR Boomeranger of the Year" award. Michael Gabriel won "Rookie of the Year".
The 18 December 1997 edition of The Wall Street Journal contained an advertisement for American, Western & Sporting Art for J. N. Bartfield Galleries. The advertisement included a photo of a marvelous oil painting showing SW Indians on a Rabbit Hunt on horseback using Rabbit Sticks. These Rabbit Sticks have more curvature than is typically seem in museum collections! If you are feeling rather wealthy, you can purchase this original art by calling the gallery at (212) 245-8890.
Brad Westervelt (USA) went to Sydney on a short vacation in December. On his visit, he looked up the word "boomerang" in the white pages of the phone book and found 36 businesses with names beginning with the word "Boomerang". Other businesses have names that begin with the words: Boom, Booma, Boomer, etc. Brad also met Duncan MacLennan and picked up two nice boomerangs at The Rainbow Serpent Gallery in the Sydney Airport. You can email this gallery and inquire about their stock at: email@example.com
Paul Gustafson (USA) found the following in the Hartford Advocate newspaper in a column titled: "News of the Wird":
"In October, a justice of the Northern Territory (Australia) Supreme Court refused to release Aborigine Steven Barnes, 28, for tribal justice, instead holding him under Australian law for the murder of a 23-year-old nephew. Tribal elders had secured Barnes' consent to the traditional punishment for his crime, including having members of his own family punch him in the face, then club him with heavy hunting boomerangs, then sling the boomerangs at him and finally spear him in both thighs four or five times." We really know that these are not boomerangs, but hunting/war throwsticks which are not promoted by most civilized boomerang clubs.
On 28 September, the Sydney throwers held their monthly throw and had 10 Japanese visitors as their guests. After Lunch, Peter Lewry, a lefty who throws only LH booms, except for a RH Bailey MTA, took his family out to perform a throwing demonstration. Peter's daughter, Kellie Lewry, started out her MTA warm up with a 26 second flight, followed by a 40 second flight, followed by a 67 second flight (Kellie is a strong baseball thrower)! After a brief rest, she went on to demonstrate a flight of 76.25 seconds! Watch out for Kellie in future Aussie competitions.
Günter Wandtke and Brother Brian Thomas made a TV show for German audiences in the Asian-Pacific region on 27 October. Bruce Carter, with sons Trent and Craig did a TV show for Bush Telegraph with singer John Williamson. Prominently featured was their night boomerang show.
Günter Wandtke found a series of 4 new stamps. A card accompanies the $1.80 stamp which shows an Aborigine holding a boomerang and looking at a tree. The caption on the back of the card says "Illustration from Tuggan Tuggan, an animated Dreamtime story", Aboriginal Nations Animation Studio, Sydney. Günter called the company and asked about the story. Günter was told that the story is about a man who loves his boomerang and also loves the Sheoak tree. He is worried that the tree getting cold in winter and goes out to search for a coat to cover the tree. He finds a coat in the form of yellow flowers that blanket the tree. Neat! Günter found out that the story will be shown on TV and will also be available on video. If you want to find out more about this video, contact Günter at:

Congratulations to Yves Cazè for taking first place overall in the Dijon tournament of 4/5 October. Of special note is his time of 17.53 seconds in the Fast Catch event. Christophe Dautriche and Sebastien Giheux came in second and third respectively.
All qualified German throwers had a meeting on 20/21 December at Axel Heckner´s home in Gießen. The three teams were fully defined at that time. Some shuffling of rated throwers occured. Heinz-Willi Dammers will not participate on a team. Florian König (place 24) moves into Dammer's place. Two of the team names have yet to be defined but could become "Young Guns II" and "Old Bones II".

Erik Leferink was recently interviewed by a journalist of a national Dutch newspaper called "Algemeen Dagblad". This is part of a series about champions from 4 uncommon sports.

Aivars Brengulis is a Latvian boomerang manufacturer who is reaching out to other boomerang throwers through his presence on the World Wide Web with the help of his boomeranging friend, Martins Ierags. You can view Aivars' boomerangs at the URL: http://www.open.lv/home/aivars
Aivars makes a large variety of two bladed and multi-bladed boomerangs out of plywood. He also makes boomerangs out of Latvian natural elbow materials. These boomerangs sell for only $7 (USD). This includes shipping to anywhere in the world! These boomerangs are a real bargain.
Collectors would be wise to buy at least one before they all disappear at this remarkable low price. The editor sampled one of the plywood models that Aivars graciously sent for a review. This boomerang appears to be made out of 4mm 4 ply Latvian Birch. The traditional boomerang has good airfoiling and comes with a glossy finish. The V85 design flies well, but is not particularly well suited to any particular competition event. It is still an excellent product for a low price of only $7.
Boomerangs and throwsticks were popular in pre-historic Latvia. In previous issues of BN, you read about prehistoric boomerangs from Germany, France, Holland, Switzerland, Poland and Scandinavia. Now you can add Latvia to the list. Maybe it would be prudent to list European countries that don't have a prehistoric record of boomerang type devices instead of countries that do. The list would be more manageable.
Caption for prehistoric boomerang drawings: Prehistoric Latvian Boomerangs! Drawings are from scientific reports (1938-1959) about archaeological expeditions at 25 peat bogs in Latvia near the Baltic sea. Artifacts are 4,000 to 5,000 years old.
If you want to find out more about Latvian boomerangs, you can contact Aivars through email: firstname.lastname@example.org or write to:

Chicago Bob has provided the following information regarding the 1998 World Cup. The dorms where everyone will be staying will sleep just over 500. Team members and families have priority, but there's little chance that they'll fill it up. So, people can pretty much plan on staying with the teams in the dorms, which will be very cool, having so many throwers under one roof! The cost is $50 for a room with two beds per night.
As for activities, the Individual World Championships will be open to all, though there may be a cut-off for the total number of entrants (125-150) to prevent events from taking too long. The cost for the Individual Championships is $75 in advance, $125 after July 1st. That will get you into the two-day Championships and a T-shirt. Plans are underway to hold a Long Distance World Championship, which will be open to all, though there may be a qualifier in the morning. The main part of the field is around 250 m by 250 m, which is minimal for Long Distance. There will also be a day of general fun, Head-2-Head or Gel Games or whatever. These details are coming along now and will become final in the next couple of months. Chicago Bob has created a comprehensive web page with everything relating to the World Cup at http://www.htc.net/~chibob/worldcup.html Additional details can be found on the web pages: http://users.aol.com/tbrang2/World_Cup98.html and http://users.aol.com/tbrang2/World_Cup98_2.html
