After we had to cancel the tournament last year due to low attendance, we had 9 registrations this year, so the tournament was held. There were 2 rounds of 8 throws each.

It was a sunny September day, yet with very low wind, which at times shifted. In the second of the two rounds the wind had stabilized somewhat, but still it was only a very light breeze. Hence there were considerable difficulties to score a valid throw. In the first round of the first group, out of the total of 32 throws, there was only one valid throw: 149 m by Manuel.  The second group had some more valid throws.

Conditions were slightly better in the second round, with a very low wind, which was relatively steady though from a western direction. Some decent throws were therefore scored.

Manuel Schütz defended his title (149 m), Lorenz Gubler (b_aggressive) came second with 119 m, and the third place was a tie at 114 m between Laurent Garnier (F) and Ludovic Brioux (F).

It was the first time for Bill Hirst from Amsterdam to attend the tournament. Enthousiasm for LD is alive, yet the community is shrinking somewhat. Hopefully, we can hold the tournament in Kloten in 2019, it will be the 20th anniversary of the World Record throw of Manuel here (238 m).

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.
