10 throwers showed up this year in Kloten. The weather conditions were, let's say, mediocre. It had been raining the whole night, so the field was soaked, as well as the throwers after a while. We started off in the rain, which became gradually less during the 1st round and eventually it stopped raining.

Nevertheless there were decent results, also because the wind was more or less steady from the west. The baseline only had to be turned once towards the end of the tournament.

There were 2 rounds with 8 throws each. Owing the the small number of throwers and the steady conditions, we could throw efficiently and finished rather early.

Manuel Schütz defended his title with a respectable distance of 168 m, followed by Laurent Garnier (144 m) and Antoine Hernandez (129 m), both from France.

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).
