Boomerang Throw­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE boomerang may be a tra­di­tional hunt­ing im­ple­ment of the Aus­tralian Abo­rig­ines, but ev­i­dence of a sim­i­lar im­ple­ment have also been found in other cul­tures. The first World Boomerang Cham­pi­onships were held in Aus­tralia in 1988, though since then the event has been held at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions around the world. Com­pe­ti­tions are held in both in­di­vid­ual and team events. The ‘‘mod­ern’’ boomerang tour­na­ment events in­clude ac­cu­racy, Aussie round, en­durance, fast catch, max­i­mum time aloft and trick catch/dou­bling.
