Hi all hope everyone is safe and happy during this festive season. I’m putting a call out, please pass this info on to people who may not see this if anyone out there is looking for a team let us know. I’m getting a list together to pass onto some other throwers waiting on this information, I have a few names but if there are more we would like to hear from you to get you in touch with either teams needing throwers or other individuals to make another international team. Peace, love and all that other mushy stuff.
The organizers of the WBC2014Perth, Christene and Leonie Metzakis, ask those who want to participate to register themselves before the end of December. The organizers must know by this date the exact number of participants and visitors to be able to manage the booking of accomodation.
Please let’s help them in their job, so that our WBC goes smoothly.

La comunità del boomerang sportivo esprime il proprio dolore per scomparsa di Aurelio Merlo.
Un cortese e distinto signore, un appassionato sportivo che mise a disposizione in modo del tutto disinteressato i suoi terreni per realizzarvi l’EBC del 2003 e il WBC del 2010.
Il nostro sport era lontano dalla sua formazione culturale e professionale tuttavia ha saputo comprenderne ed apprezzarne i valori e, in particolare, le possibilità che esso offre per un uso razionale e rispettoso dell’ambiente.
La comunità del boomerang lo ricorderà con affetto e gratitudine.
The boomerang sport community expresses its sorrow for the death of Aurelio Merlo.
A courteous and distinguished gentleman, he was a keen sportsman, and generously and disinterestedly made his lands available for holding the EBC in 2003 and the WBC in 2010. Despite the fact that our sport was distant from his cultural and professional training, he was able to understand and appreciate its values and, in particular, the possibilities it offers for a rational and friendly use of the environment.
The boomerang community will remember him with affection and gratitude.
The calendar of the next season is being updated. We are waiting for adding your tournaments.
