Title: Balearic International Slinging Tournament 2020
Post by funditor on Dec 22nd, 2019 at 4:17pm
Hi everyone, the cornerstone dates for next year's slinging tournament have been communicated by the president of the federation Pep Ribas Ribas:
February 27 to March 2nd
The tournament dates and locations have not been fixed yet.
My estimation is that three tournments will take place on Friday Saturday and Sunday.

There will be a programme organized upfront again

I will keep you updated as I get news. So everyone who wants to come can already book the flights as long as they are still cheap ;)

I hope to see many of your faces again next year.

Team Austria will probably come with 8 !! members, four of them women. I am glad the enthusiasm has spread in Austria along my acquaintances. Hope the same happens in other countries also. By now we have also a formal slinging club also.

Hafa Adai and Happy New Year Rockers! Wow. Awesome guys. Great to see the growing team from Austria! Thanks again Christian for introducing us to the Tir de Fona Internacionale--its been a great adventure and we will definitely be back..Unfortunately it doesnt seem we will be making it there this year or the next...

We (ACHO MARIANAS) will be busy reenforcing the groundwork for an international event/adventure  in March of 2021 on Guam (Youre all Invited) In order to stimulate the participation of the tournament, and to attract the best we have in this region--we are  focusing on outreach programs to invite and nourish as many cultures as we can throughout the Pacific. Tons of details in development--Will keep everyone posted for sure. Thanks for your time! Rock on 2020!

palma airport.

contact pep for details. pepribasribas@hotmail.com

You'll most likely be staying at the hotel Amic Horizonte,
Always a good idea to get there the day before the first competition as things always start first thing in the morning.
This is to leave time for the 4 hour lunches :-)

Normally I'd be in the hotel lobby to greet newbies, but this year hasnt started any better than the last one finished - so just can't see my being able to afford it this year :-(

That's so awesome you're going Kick!  Like CA, my finances just don't align with an oversea trip this year.  I've already got a tentative plan for next year, to get through the holiday season with less money spent.  If I can manage that, the trip could possibly happen.

Definitely go for a Finnish sling. :)

Title: Re: Balearic International Slinging Tournament 2020
Post by Curious Aardvark on Jan 16th, 2020 at 6:43am
you can't make both in 2021 as they will be happening, pretty much at the same time and anyone who can be, will be in guam :-)

It's just the time that the 500th (or 400, have to check) anniversary of spain invading guam falls.

I know it seems weird to celebrate the date when your culture got subsumed by someone elses - but any excuse for a party right :-)
Also it's celebrating the resurgence of the chamorro culture in recent years - driven in no small part by the sling and the traditions surrounding it.

Plus since spain sold guam to the United States for a glorified military base - the spanish seem to have kind of come back into favour somewhat.

Given all the slingers they have on the outlying islands, I think 2021 could well end up being the the largest gathering of competitive slingers in recorded history.

you'll be the finnish slinging champion :-)
Maybe get sponsorship to help with the costs.
simply turning up in mallorca and slinging your first throw in a competition, will make you that :-)

Unfortunately I'm going to miss Mallorca this year but I'm going to try my best to get to Guam or Mallorca next year , perhaps I can look into some sponsorship or establishing an Australian team, I know there's 3 west Aussie slingers and one in Tasmania , maybe I'll make a post and see what I can gather up.

whatever that is, put it on a pole. You need to throw at a target nearer head height :-)

Title: Re: Balearic International Slinging Tournament 2020
Post by Kick on Jan 23rd, 2020 at 10:22am
It's a bloody big metal pan. Believe me, if I could I would. It was a battle to get it just to stand up :D All I had was a really rubbish stick. There's a big heavy log that has a branch that's pointing straight up near-by. I might have a go at dragging it over a bit and see if that works better. My one wish is a big garden I could set up a proper target range. Luckily, most of my shots have been going too high so I should be fine for the competition :D

Title: Re: Balearic International Slinging Tournament 2020
Post by Kick on Jan 25th, 2020 at 1:31pm
Well I dragged that big log out and it looks like I need some rope to hang the pan. I won't be able to get it much higher anyway so I might not bother. It works better than a stick anyway as the pan doesn't fall over as much when I hit it. Speaking of which, I was much better today. I landed quite a few hits especially with Fig 8. 'm still terrible at Balearic. It just will not stop going real wide right or, if I try to correct, real wide left. At least I know I can score at least 1 point at 20m and maybe a bit more than that at 10m. 30m... Let's see. I'll be taking a camera and trying to get some of my own footage so let's see how that goes.

I hit the board! Not counted into the championship but this first day we did two rounds of 5 stones each. I only got the one but I'm happy with that. It's been great meeting up with so many people I've heard about, talked to and/or exchanged slings with. Being around other slingers! I love it.

It was so great, especially because I got to meet so many people from the forum that I've been talking to for so long. Being around other slingers for the first time was amazing as well. I suggest everyone go next year (Team Australia...?) and there's a standing invitation to anyone on the forum to come over to Finland. I know some darn good restaurants and all the best slinging spots :D

The competition is split into men's and women's individual competition and then men's and women's team competition and there is the same for kids (male and female) but only individuals (At least that's what I understood. I don't think there is kid's teams as we had a kid on our team :D).

Austria brought a full 5 person female team (who did incredibly well) and there were a lot of women from the Balearics competing. There was a wide range of ages too. I was surprised to see so many young people that were obviously taking it seriously but also very much enjoying themselves. I half expected bored teenagers being dragged along because it was important for their grandparents, but no they were really involved and loving it. It was great to see. Also a lot of them were incredibly talented.

I've finished up a video collecting together all the videos myself and my dad got and some photos as well. Unfortunately it's only phone camera footage. It would have been a nightmare getting the camera around so I'm glad I didn't bring it but there is a trade-off. Next year I'll film more and try to find a way to bring a camera.

Hopefully I'll get it uploaded tomorrow if YouTube behaves and stops getting stuck in processing purgatory.

And here are my shots from the competition. Next year I'll bring the better camera and get my dad to take continuous footage. It'll be a hell of a lot easier to edit that way  ::) But yeah final total of available footage:

19 points (2 dianas)

I'm very happy with that considering all I wanted was to hit the board at least once. With some more practice (especially honing my Greek style) I know I can do better for next year. Can't wait!

Thanks! I think I have to have a word with the cameraman though. My dad took individual videos for each shot so I actually did no editing basically, but it means all the videos are very short and jumpy. Next time I would want a whole round filmed so it#s easier to keep track of what happened when.

yep makes more sense to film the whole round.

I also noticed that the catalans didn't come this year. So you didn't get to see hector sling.
There's defintiely  a video around, it's just worth seeign to work out why he's never knocked himself out. Plus the catalan dragons are a great bunch and some are fluent in english :-)

Presumably as both they and diego are mainland spain the corona cirus could have been why they didn't go. First one hector's ever missed.

He turned up at the first one in traditional garb. ie: just a loincloth :-)
I think David's got a video of him slinging in his gear.

The tournament improved significantly over time 😊
My three highlights were
of course being champion at a tournament 😉 and bringing home one gold and four silver cups
Having a hattrick at a tournament (three consecutive dianas)
Aaand the wonderful setting for the last two tournaments, picture attached) right in front of the cathedral
It was great, also with the chance to visit the wonderful market there, haha I spent sooo much money on wonderful things 😊

Kick it was great to meet you live, a great person and a highly hooked and skilled slinger. How great would it be to spend more time together with slinging, partying and talking, this weekend was over faster than a glimpse of a firefly...

Aaaand also forever to be remembered Thais Alvarez, belved daughter of the great voiced Avel Alvarez, who scored the legen -wait for it -  dary FIVE dianas in a row with five stones, chapeau forever!

Also she is an many many pictures in the CCDS flickr stream by Joan, even before her score.
I do not have any idea why, perhaps you can help me out ?  ;)

Thank you so much! I was so impressed by how good everyone was and I definitely learned a lot from getting to see everyone sling. It was over way too fast. I think next time (if corona doesn't keep us inside forever...) I'll be coming for at least two weeks. Get to see a bit more of the island and hopefully spend some more time hanging out with whoever is around :D

She was unbelievably good. 3x as much power as I can get out of Balearic style.
