In front of a photograph of Gagarine, in the Russian Space Station Mir, Jean-François Clervoy experiments with a MK 1 (made by Jacques Thomas) floating in microgravity at 400 km above Earth and at a speed of 28,000 kilometers/hour. This is an official NASA photograph, dated May 1997.
News From The:
American throwers are mourning the death of two well known throwers who made very different contributions to the sport of boomeranging.
Carl Naylor of Brooklyn, New York, passed away on 12 December at the age of 80, loosing his battle against Cancer. Carl is best known as the first President of the USBA. Few throwers command as much respect from other throwers as does Carl. The trail of good will that he left in the wake of his life is stunning. Even in death, Carl continues his good will towards others. Carl's marvelous and historic boomerang collection will be auctioned off in the Spring and Fall Boomerang Auctions. The estate proceeds will be used towards the promotion of boomerang throwing with young throwers. Boomerang News readers are invited to send proposals to the editor for how these funds can be distributed. All proposals will be given to the estate administrator for further consideration.
Willie Davis passed away on 11 January at the age of 32 from a Cardiac Arrhythmia, a complication of Diabetes. Willie was a member of the THUBA team from Fort Wayne, Indiana. Willie was a serious Midwest competitor for more than a dozen years. His Team Thuba friend, Alan Winterrowd, wrote the following about Willie's accomplishments:
Willie P. Davis
1965 - 1998
Willie passed away, at the age of 32, on January 11, 1998. Willie began throwing boomerangs in 1987. His first tournament was as a novice at the Free Throwers Fling (in a novice field that included such notables as Chicago Bob and Rev. Jim). Willie enjoyed making booms and excelled in MTA.
Notable finishes in his too-short boomerang career include: 1st place, MTA, 1989 Nationals, Gunnison CO 3rd place, MTA, 1990 Nationals, St. Louis MO 3rd place, Doubling, 1991 Nationals, Delaware OH 10th place, Overall, 1991 Nationals, Delaware OH 1st place, 1991 US Team Championships, as part of Team Mantis with Gary Broadbent, Chet Snouffer, Fridolin Frost and Chicago Bob Leifeld
Willie is survived by his mother, Caroline, and his sister, Lori.
Bill Tumath sold a large quantity of beautiful Herb Smith boomerangs in early January to the surprise of enthusiastic boomerang collectors. The prices were similar to those generated in the 1996 & 1997 boomerang auctions. Surprisedly, the quantity of boomerangs sold did not suppress the prices that collectors were willing to pay (wood: $65 - $180 and Paxolin: $175 - $300). It appears that collectable boomerangs have become a legitimate investment commodity and Herb Smith boomerangs are rapidly becoming the de facto unit of currency.
Pat Steigman set up a boomerang exhibit on the second floor of the Tyler Public Library on 31 December. The main case is on the 2nd floor and has four sections. One section holds the Cryderman Raptor and a beautiful BVD Lap Joint, as well as various books and copies of MHR and Boomerang News. Two cases contain examples of different types of rangs: LD, MTA, FC, and specialty rangs like the Tomahawk and Delta from Master Designs. The fourth case is the construction area. It contains plans, cardboard patterns, blanks, and partially constructed rangs showing the boomerang making process from pencil lines on a block of plywood through shaping and painting to create a finished boom.
There is a smaller case on the first floor which has a variety of rangs, mostly by GEL, and other boomerang items. Information on how to contact the USBA and join the Rang-list is posted on the ends of the large sections upstairs. The exhibit will run until the end of February.

Look for the May/June issue of "The Sciences", a publication of The New York Academy of Sciences, for an excellent article on boomeranging by Dan Drollette, an American Science Writer based in Canberra, Australia.
Congratulations to Joseph C. Tylor for being awarded an "Indoor Boomerang" design patent, number D0389878.
Jeff Heindrichs recently received a boomerang with the United Parcel Service logo on it. This boom is a traditional shape, 1/4", 5 ply with the UPS logo on the elbow. Along with the logo there is also the phrase "Authorized Return Service".
Gary Broadbent is having an open house both before (July) and after (August) the 1998 World Cup Championships. Experience the exhilaration of non-stop boomerang throwing and partying with America's most eccentric (and #1 rated) competitor.

14th Annual Christmas/New Years Tournament
by Michael Gel Girvin
Eight women and 14 men gathered at Billy Martin Field in Oakland, California on January 1st, 1998 for the 14th Annual Christmas/New Years Tournament. The 2 - 5 M.P.H. winds and 60 degrees temperature served as the backdrop for the five teams to play boomerang games, have fun and define poetic radness. Expert throwers and novice throwers graced each team for enhanced learning and bonus fun factor. Team Hackuracy (Accuracy with extra points for hackies), Whoa Nelly (Aussie Round, Trick Catch and Consecutive Catch combined), Team Hacky Catch (one team player throwers and others team players hacky it between each other for maximum points), Super Catch, and Round Rang Relay were the games that rang in the new year! Most of the highlights came from the novice throwers who put out tons of effort learning how to throw accurately and catch with style. After all the fun boomerang playing was done, everyone received hand-painted plaque trophies that were made the day before at the trophy making party! All the players went home happy from good weather, great friends and rad effort.
Woodworkers who make those beautiful lap joint and strip laminated boomerangs can find a great assortment of terrific collectable hardwoods at Bob Morgan Woodworking Supplies. Call (502)-456-2545 or write to:

There was a boomerang gathering in San Diego, California on 10 January with throwers from as far North as Washington (Will Herlan) and as far East as Vermont (Eric Darnell & John Flynn). The main attraction was a kite convention that brought Eric and John. Other visitors included Steve Kavanaugh, Erik Fields, Dan Russell and Bob Letson (with his flying Tennis Racket). Much of the throwing focused on Long Distance with many a throw going out 110 metres or more. There was a big dinner party afterwards. The organizer of this wonderful non-competitive affair was John Weigel of San Diego.
Another low key event was held in bitter cold Colorado on New Year's Eve, organized by Richard Pollock-Nelson. The event was called the first annual Rocky Mountain Night Throw and Novice Boomerang Tournament. Several cold and crazy throwers braved the Winter Chill for this event. Four threw their boomerangs before midnight and two caught their booms on the following year. The group then went on to have a novice tournament with three events: Accuracy, Fast Throw, and Fast Throw Endurance. After the trophies were handed out, the throwers dispersed at 2:00 AM. You can view pictures of this crazy event at Richard's web page that is listed in the WWW section of this newsletter.
Pat Cardiff is a 36 year old artist from Athens, Georgia who is known locally as "the Naked Guy, the Guy who Lives in a Tree, and, most prominently, the Boomerang Guy". Pat, who models in the nude, really did live in Athens Georgia's trees for two Winter seasons, wedging himself in forked branches over 40 feet high at night to avoid chiggers. Pat's artworks include inventive, usually zoomorphic, and surprisingly functional wooden boomerangs. Pat has recently fallen in love, and his latest batch of boomerangs, with shapes in the human female form, reflect his recent obsession. Pat has moved to the icelands of New Hampshire to pursue his new love. If you want to find out more about Pat Cardiff boomerang products, you can write to him at:

Many thanx to Dr. Fred Malmberg for sending us the cartoon (shown below) about the United Nations/Iraqi crisis, depicting the boomerang as a legitimate weapon. I hope this issue of Boomerang News arrives at your home before President Clinton goes on his shooting spree.
Neil Wegner had an irritating experience of sorts. He mailed a 30+ year old Australian tourist boomerang from Alberta to a customer in New York State, USA via UPS. The package was seized in Sweetwater, Montana after an over zealous Canadian Customs Agent called an American Customs Agent and told him to hold the boomerang because it was "culturally significant"! After a lengthy wait, while American and Canadian Customs Agents contacted Australian Customs Agents, the boomerang was finally cleared for delivery to the USA. Have any of the readers had similar problems dealing with customs agents when shipping boomerangs across borders?
Stéphane Marguerite recently did two TV shows about boomerangs in Montreal. One of the new technologies is a camera the size of a pen that attaches to your glasses. That allows the producer to capture exactly what you see when you throw and catch. Stéphane will bring a copy of the video to the WBC this summer.
Congratulations to the throwers who were selected for the Canadian 1998 World Cup Team:
The Canadian Team is selling T-shirts with their team logo to raise money to go to the World Cup. The T-shirt is XL and beige in color with a black and red logo as depicted right. You can purchase one of these collectable T-shirts by sending $14 USD to Stéphane Marguerite. This price is valid in Canada and the USA.

Congratulations to John Cryderman who received great coverage in the 9 December edition of the The Chatham-Kent Citizen newspaper. Most of the coverage was about John's boomerang business, but there was also discussion about boomerang history and competition.
There will be no Canadian tournaments in 1998 due to the lack of response from the USA in 1997.
The 1997 competition ratings, based upon both placing and best performance are official for the French throwers. The top 5 are:
Many thanx to Jacques Thomas for providing Boomerang News with the front page photograph showing Jean-François Clervoy throwing a MK 1 boomerang on the Space Station Mir.
Jacques is no stranger himself to throwing under unusual conditions. He has thrown and caught a boomerang when flying over the international date line and on the Concorde at supersonic speed. Over the past summer, Jacques added the throwing of cardboard boomerangs aboard old vintage aircraft to his list of accomplishments. This included a B-17 Flying Fortress and a DC-3 Dakota. The experience was sobering for Jacques with his memories of seeing more than 1,000 B-17s bomb his home city of Lyon during World War II and his flights aboard DC-3s in Viet Nam before the American presence in that country. These boomerangs will be added to Jacques' Museum collection.
Martin Wikstroem is Finnish, but he lives in Bonn. On September 14th, he and Marc Rink went for a throw in a hilly area, when Martin suddenly had his new self-made pax MTA go up higher and higher. Martin chased the MTA for about 40 minutes before he lost sight of it. The boomerang was chased down by automobile.
From issue #21 of theBollettino dell'Associazione C.L.U.B., the 1998 Italian World Cup Team has been selected:
In the last issue, it was reported that Aivars Brengulis was making both natural elbow and plywood boomerangs that sold for $7, shipping included. There was a communication problem with this announcement. The $7 price applies only to plywood boomerangs. This is still a terrific deal. If you missed the last issue, you can send $7 to Aivars at the following address:

At the Swiss Long Distance Competition on 23/24 August, Ingo Frantz had the longest throw of the day with a distance of 120.30 metres. Ingo was using a Challenger III. The overall winner for the day was Lorenz Gubler followed by Tibor Horvath and Markus Peissard, based on cumulative points for three throws.
You already read about David Hesse's World Record performance in MTA (97.78 seconds) at the Swiss Championships held this past 20 September. There were other incredible performances as well. Harald Steck threw 17.33 seconds in Fast Catch. The top 8 throwers all had times of under 20 seconds, including Frido Frost who had 17.60 seconds in F/C. Frido won the tournament with 1-4 placings in every event except Accuracy. Oliver Thienhaus and Oli Rau rounded out the top 3 placings.
Have any of the readers seen a copy of the Swiss Boomerang Newsletter? This German language newsletter is an excellent source of information about boomerangs, especially if you have an interest in the Long Distance event. The newsletter also has boomerang plans which everybody can use. The newsletter is published quarterly and is issued to members of the Swiss Boomerang Federation.

Two Swiss teams have been defined for the 1998 World Cup. Throwers include:
In March 1996, I was elected to a committee for constructing bylaws for the WBA. The committee had no elected leader. After an extended delay, I was elected as the committee's chairman. For several months, things went well as input was collected from the various clubs regarding what was required to make the bylaws work. In January 1997, my life was dealt a wild card. I have an aunt who failed in her health and I have had to take on responsibility for taking care of this elderly person with financial and health problems. The requirements include about 10-15 hours of my personal time each week. I had to set priorities and my involvement with the WBA bylaws suffered as a result. I had to give up the WBA bylaws or stop editing Boomerang News which I did not want to do because I think BN is extremely important to the international community of boomerang throwers. Does anyone want to take on the task of caring for an elderly person so I can finish the WBA bylaws?
With the 1998 World Cup only 6 months hence, there is still time to complete the task of formulating the WBA bylaws. I am now asking for help with this task. If any of the readers have experience with writing bylaws and wish to take on this effort as the committee chairman, please contact Ted Bailey as soon as possible. I will give you all the support that I can through Boomerang News as well as some of my personal time.
As far as the World Cup is concerned, everything is still proceeding well.

Again I have failed to include everything that Boomerang News readers have sent for publication. I will try to include as much as possible in the next issue.
Most of the boomerangs for the Spring 1998 Auction have arrived and are being logged into the Spring Auction database. About 100 fabulous boomerangs and books were received for auction by late January. About 25 boomerangs that I wasn't expecting also arrived from various boom makers. Then, a big box arrived with Carl Naylor's boomerang collection. The Naylor collection was split in two parts. Half will be auctioned off in the Spring and the remainder will be auctioned off in the Fall.
What else is in the Spring Auction? There is a comprehensive library of out-of-print books! How about an old Aboriginal throwstick coated with human blood instead of red ochre? There are more collectable boomerangs by Herb Smith, Al Gerhards, the Janetzki brothers and even two extremely rare Frank Donellan boomerangs! One of these is made out of Whale Bone, a material that preceeded Paxolin by 40 years and was the preferred material for Long Distance. There are several beautiful natural elbows from Latvia, Germany, the Philippines and the USA; historical boomerangs by Dan Russell, Bunny Read, Leni Barker and Rus Feuerbach. How about art booms by Didier Bonin? There is even a kangaroo skin boomerang bag. For those of you who compete with throwsticks, there is a wonderful selection this time. Bid sheets for the Spring auction will be available after 28 February 1998. The bid sheet must be returned by 15 April 1998. Notification of winning bids will take place on 1 May 1998. To preview the Auction Web Page, set your web browser to: http://users.aol.com/tbrang2/auction.html
