- Hi All,
Glad to see the list back in action, thank you Matthew! Late notice to all
but throwing at my house at 11:00 AM tomorrow. Just a fun day of throwing
and some good food. I can't wait because I have not seen some of you in
several months. If you need directions I will check my e-mail one more time

With my background in Ninjutsu, I of course have gotten a bit of
practise with throwing stars. Also back in high school, my buddy & I
got into boomerangs and had a lot of fun with those.
I would especially like to hear from anyone knowledgable or experienced
with atlatls and bolas, as I have only read about these two items.
Also (sorry if this item has been beat to death in the past) I would
like to hear from anyone with historical info or experience using
chakrams, ie Xena's throwing disk.
