I will say that the event was a success! Channing did an awesome job organizing a great event. Variety, good food, good people and we were able to finish all of the events.

There were 8 people that traveled pretty far to make it to the event, and 5 people that participated that aren't on the forum or really any of the online communities. So, it makes me think there are a lot of people out there that sling but don't engage with this forum. I found this interesting and exciting because that means if we get them to engage more, we can really grow this great sport/activity for more people to share!  I'm hoping to put an event like this on in CA at some point, probably next year. It'll be hard to top though!

Gentlemen who were there, it was fun to sling with you all!

I didn't get much footage, but I did get some of the speed rounds. My batteries don't last very long in my camera Sad

Yeah, I'll add a +1 to everything IG said.  I'm quite surprised how well everything went.  I told Channing at the end that if someone asked me to quickly name something that didn't go right or should have been done differently, I would have no response.  Even thinking about it for a little while, nothing comes to mind.  The games were fun, the food was amazing, and nothing felt rushed.  There was always time to get in some practice throws or chat with the other folks there.
My only issue is that my slinging was terrible. Grin
It was just a big slinging party with a bunch of people having a great time!  I encourage anyone who can make it to definitely try to next year!

Below I will add a post with the scores for each game.  I was going to retype everything but decided to just post images of the scoresheets.  So if something is confusing, just ask what's going on.

One more picture.  Here's a shot of the trophies before they were handed out.  You can see the individual winners in the sheets above.  But the overall top 3 were:

1st: IronGoober (Who was freakin' awesome through the whole tournament!)
2nd: Jamie (Who is a new member that was just signed up during the comp, username SoySauceAOTGDF. And is also a fantastic slinger!)
3rd: Channing (His running around to manage the event was not a distraction. Smiley)

And just one more thing to mention, Jamie and Channing were actually tied for 2nd place overall.  Jamie won it in a shootout on the last day.

The event was great, meeting so many other slingers just makes me want to introduce some more people locally to it. Slinging by yourself is fun, slinging with others is even better! I filmed most of the distance comp, sorry Joe, but I only got one of your throws. I think I hit pause instead of record before you started. I also cut a few miss-releases and only used measured throws.

Ha!  No problem at all man.  You, Jamie, and IG are really the ones people should see.  I certainly don't get the highest speeds, and distance slinging isn't something I practice.  I'll try to change that for next year!  Smiley



When we were doing some distance practice on Friday, Hunter was absolutely killing it!  He had a couple that were out around the 85 meter mark.  He just didn't quite get that perfect throw on competition day.  It was still awesome to see him sling!
