Title: Hi from the UK
Post by Matugena on Dec 13th, 2020 at 4:14pm
Iím New to Slinging. I have an interest in Ancient and Dark ages history. I really like the sling. So I made a couple, enjoyed it. So I bought one made by Tod Cutler.
My accuracy is awful, but I live near a great place to practice, so hopefully Iíll get better.
The Name Matugena is female Romano British of Celtic origin.
Once again Hi

Welcome! Always nice to see a new UK slinger. One day we will make a full team for the Balearics competition!

Poor accuracy just makes the hits that much more satisfying. Welcome!

No one has accuracy at the beginning.† And some of us don't have very good even after a couple years.† :D

But seeing yourself improve is definitely part of the fun.† Keep at it!

And some of us are too modest, a trait which I thankfully don't have. If you ever want to learn the true art of slinging you are in luck because I am the sole proprietor of the only true way to sling.  :D

All joking aside welcome to slinging and slinging.org. This is a great forum with at times very lively debate. I hope you stick around.

Accuracy is never a problem if you only decide what you wanted to hit after you are done with the throw ;D

well come the summer, I'm always open for people to come over and have a bash at a balearic target.

Always good fun and things generally deterioate into sock ball fights :-)

I'm situated in the exact geographic centre of england (there are three local fields that claim to be it - I reckon we're near the centre point of the three lol). So unless your way up north or way down south - usually a reasonable trip to get here.

And welcome to the forum :-)
