Title: Hi from North West England
Post by Badgerdubhghaill on Sep 10th, 2019 at 6:59am
Hi, My name is Badger,
David Morningstar introduced me to slinging at a campfire gathering of a mutual friend a while back (in which I inadvertently made him twist his ankle falling into a quarry pit). I exchanged my leatherworking skills for one of his slings. I headed up to the local reservoir (Calderdale ara) and had a practice, discovered I enjoyed it, discovered the beautiful sounds of misshapen rocks being slung! Also discovered I have everything in my workspace to make slings!

Was near that area I started slinging, just on the edge of Sheffield. Good leatherworking is useful for sling making too. Welcome!

ah ha thought i recognised the handle.
You'll be one of the chaps I met at the bushmoot the other year.

I remember the falling down incident. He still claims beer wasn't involved.
Could anybody believe such a claim :-)

Slings do get hold of you, once you've launched a rock into the clear blue yonder, it's kind of addictive.

Interested to see what kind of slings you turn out :-)
