The weekend of the 27-28th of February of 2015 In Mallorca, the Balearic slinging federation, is going to do de 2nd international slinging tournament.
Five years ago we did the first one, with people from all around the world (England, Germany, Canada, Tibet, south America, Switzerland, Poland…) now is time for the second one.
If somebody is interested, we are throwing to a target at 20-25 m distance, and the Balearic federation is going to help as much as possible to everyone  with special prices and offers, accommodation, flights, boat, meals…
If you are interested, please send a message or an email to federacio@tirdefona.org

Hello,
I am I am a bachelor degree student of Prehistoric Archaeology of the Near East at Masaryk University in Brno the Czech republic. I am currently working on my master's thesis which is a continuation and extension of my previous bachelor's work titled as Re-assessment of Objects Referred to as Sling Missiles in the Prehistoric Archaeology of the Near East.
So I am interested in the sling, slinging and sling shots.

..and I contacted federacio@tirdefona.org for more information but still no answer. Can you tell me how the tournament is organised. I would like to attend as an observer and maybe do the interviews with slingers. I would like to also know how is it with the accommodation in Mallorca.

Smiley

I believe it says that for 200 Euros you get 4 nights room and board and ferry, it's a special package deal they negotiated (but perhaps you want to check that). Get in touch with them to confirm ?

Quick answer, cause I still (mostly) can read spanish but I will need some serious convincing to try to make nice english sentences :
They can get you a discount if you come by boat from Denia or Valencia, take 4 night in a 3star hostel with full pension (well, the 3-meals-a-day thingie) and some cultural visits around. All this for only 200€. 50% if you're under 12 Tongue
If you want to be independant, they still can pick you from wherever you land and bring you where you sleep.
They recommend that you come the thursday and leave on the next monday.

They don't say where it will take place more than "Mallorca"... But the conference take place saturday the 31st of january. It doesn't say if you need to be clothed like in the picture to enter.

here it is said that the competition will take place in Soller.

hostel or hotel ?

Don't fancy a hostel.

Biggest problem at the moment is flights.
Because it's out of season there are no direct flights - or none that I can find.

So currently trying to find the shortest duration 1 stop flight.
Looks like you either go via madrid or zurich.
Never been to switzerland, mind you never been to spain either Smiley
