Dear Talkers,Does anyone imagine how tough this game would be, if played by the rules stated? A balloon is typically tethered by a string, and is not rigidly placed near anything. It will move, if pushed, rather than burst. You would also needthrow our rangs thru the hoop, not as it lay on the ground. OH, no, we'd toss the thing up high and a thrower wouldattempt to throw thru the loop.we soon tired of that game...then someone had a BIG GULP drink....we tried hitting it. another tuff game.we soon returned to hitting ourselves:)

Ok, so I'm the bad apple ;) I'll try and use a Kylie for the dangerous stuff from now one. Would be cheaper for me than busting all my good returners :) best, Vic P

Subject: RE: [Boomerang_Talk] Re: boomerang golfHi Vic, I must disagree. Anytime you portray the boomerang, other that you being the target, is not portraying the boomerang properly in the general public eyes. It is OK to have the boomerang in a trick shot that it comes back and lands in a basketball hoop near you as an amazing feat, but throwing at targets or trying to hit something out in front of you, sets us all back on educating the public and promoting the sport. Leave that to the Kylie throwers of the world and make sure we differentiate between the two. Gary

I've hit several different targets with a boomerang but they were in a fixed position. A floating baloon with a little wind would increase difficulty a great deal. Also I don't think of target practicing, as using them as a weapon. Throwing them at birds and your mother in law would make them weapons, hahaha. I find it much more enjoyable to try and get them to do there entire flight and then land in a basketball hoop.
I was contacted this morning by (Japan TV Corporation), a public broadcasting company in Japan. It is like PBS or BBC . They want to air my boom trick shot video in an upcoming event along with my Friend boom video.
This should open sales for everyone here in the states that is selling them. Chances are I will be contacted by many people wanting to buy. I will be more than happy to direct sales to folks on here looking to increase there sales.

Does anyone imagine how tough this game would be, if played by the rules stated? A balloon is typically tethered by a string, and is not rigidly placed near anything. It will move, if pushed, rather than burst. You would also need a boom with longer distance than the object actually is, and to try to intersect your longer distance boom path with the shorter distance target. And, if someone actually hits it, you'd have to stop and reposition another exactly sized balloon in exactly the same place, for the next thrower. Wow.
Oh, and then you'd have to deal with Gary "boomerangs are NOT weapons" Broadbent. Did Aborigines throw at inflated animal bladders? And, if so, where did they get lighter than air gases?
