In analogy to the years before, we will not have a scheduled warm-up for each group, but rather allot more throws per participant, e.g. 8 throws per round (depending on the number of contestants).

If you are living further away than you can travel in 1 day, please let me know, so we can make proper arrangements for accomodation, picking-up at the airport etc.

As usual: we will be having a barbeque after the tournament. Bring along whatever you like to grill, or let me know and I'll get it for you.

Hi all

Only 9 throwers turned up this time, maybe because of the date in autumn ?
In any case, the field was in a terrible state, as it was "ploughed" by the military and turned into a dirt track. Luckily the ground was dry, despite the shower of rain during the night, so the field was not turned into a mud pot.

During the first round the wind was relatively stable with a light breeze from SW. During the lunch break and the beginning of the second round, the wind was calm. Then, the strength picked up a little bit with the same direction as in the morning.

Manuel Schütz won the tournament with 171 m, followed by Laurent Garnier (126 m) with only 1 m in front of Stephan Spirgi (125 m).
