Our boomerangs are back and we are on the field!
Brief Update: August 2022 was the return of the World Cup in Bordeaux, France. Seeing everyone from around the world gather again was something great to see.
From this event we have a great new committee dedicated to bring growth to not only the IFBA but also to help new countries join the world of boomerang throwing.
The WBC 2022 was the first time an Indo (Indonesian/Indian) team attended and they did not disappoint, they showed us that there are still many more countries to reach and have involved in our sport.
Dear fellow boomerang lovers,
It has been almost a year that I was elected the new IFBA President in Perth / Australia. I was honored to be the successor of Maurizio Saba – a perfect gentleman of the Sport.
Ever since that day, the new Board of Directors and I have been in contact with the IFBA member nations as well as potential future members. We are working on spreading basic information about boomerangs to new, interested parties as well as we are working on synchronizing and improving our event rules and the way our associations are run.
For those of you, you don’t know me:
