Did the international group compete against the balearic slingers as well? Or were they a separate group?

distances were 10 metres for kids and women
and 20 metres for everyone else.

In the team competitions everyone competes at 20 metres Including kids and women.

And no it wasn't particularly logical.

So basically there was a team competition where they had 2 rounds of 5 shots each.

Us foreigners got shoehorned into that and had 1 round of 5 shots each.
That was the saturday in sa pobla

Then there was the main international competition where everybody competed together. We all had 2 rounds of 5 shots each.

That was in the sea fort in palma.

Unfortunately - due mainly to time taken up by speeches - we never got a chance to sling at 30 metres.
And given that most of us were slinging high I reckon we'd have stood a better chance of hitting a 30 metre target than a 20 metre Smiley 

These are all things that will (hopefully) get sorted for 2017.
Along with time for us foreigners to do some real practice.

Balearic practice consists of a long line of people throwing 2 rocks each.
Personally I like a good 100 throws as a warmup. And had to do most of these with an empty sling.

But heh given that I'd never slung at a balearic target before, let alone in a competition and hadn't actually slung anything much at all over winter (it's too dark when i take the dog out) - I'm just chuffed I wasn't last in either competition and didn't blank in either - which surprising number of locals did. 

Couple hours intensive practice and I'd be up there.
I'dalso like to have tried out different styles and a baleric sling - but again we just didn't have either the time or the opportunity.

When I read the schedule you posted C_A it seemed like it was a very busy couple of days. I would prefer the ability to spend the first day there just gathering and sorting rocks in preperation for the tournament. Maybe I misread it though?

Oh hell yeah I want the forums official sasquatch there Smiley

The odds are this is now a yearly thing.

so plan for the last week march next year mate Thumbs Up

If we could field an actual slinging.org team, that would be awesome Smiley

Not sure if there'll be five of us there this year - or if jaegoor would join Wink
he does have his own slinging organisation after all.

But it'll be something I'll discuss.

Hafa Adai Folks,

My name is Roman Dela Cruz, I hpe that things are well for you all.

iI was born and raised in Guam--the only place in the world with a Slingstone on its national flag (so ive heard). Our people used to be tremendously skilled with the slingstone in precolonial days and now were at the dawn of a Sliingstone Revival. We are hoping if anyone might be able to help with any information on slinging tournaments/world championships/etc... that we might be able to send a team to. We believe that competing overseas could be a good goal to work towards to keep our folks motivated. if there might be an International Organization that we might be able to work, wed love to make contact and see how we might be able to move forward.

any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. Rock On!
