9/1/2006 – We introduced Georgia to the world of Long Distance Boomerang throwing today. And we introduced the world of Long Distance boomerang throwing to Georgia’s uncooperative wind. The winds were mostly light throughout the day, occasionally growing strong enough to be of some benefit to our goal of throwing boomerangs far! With the full day dedicated to throwing LD, the 14 throwers were able to throw three rounds of five throws. Special thanks go to David Hirsch and Don Monroe who served as chiefs-in-charge of judging, spotting, and general organization of the LD day. Thanks also go to Andy Cross and Clay Dawson for making this LD event possible by sending their laser range finders and other LD support equipment.
Delaney Mohr took an early lead, throwing 107 meters with his first throw in the first round. Daniel Bower then took the lead with 114 meters with his second throw. Other notable scores from the first round were Tom Wythes with 105 meters and Tucson Don Monroe with 100 meters. The winds in the first were pretty low.
In the second round the winds picked up periodically and people took advantage for some of the personal top scores of the day. Randy Kirk and Morri Mohr threw boomerangs made by Morri for 98 meters. David Hirsch kept on throwing very aggressively after his first throw safety toss of 90 meters. The aggressive throws were impressive, but never quite came back for a score. Juice threw 101 meters followed up by a 115 meter throw. Richard Bower threw for 104 meters while brother Daniel won the round (and eventually the tournament) with a great throw of 126 meters in a decent little breeze. Tom Wythes was Mr. Consistency with three throws in the second round over 100 meters, topping out at 114 meters.
The winds pretty much died for the third round. The only people who had their day’s best throws late in the day were John Gaston (62 meters) and Jason Smucker (98 meters with a catch a few meters behind the baseline).
In the end, Daniel Bower worked through the shifty conditions and showed everybody how impressive 126 meters can look.
