Welcome to Boomtown!

aLAcrity Boomerangs is a group of boomerang enthusiasts from Los Angeles. At the moment, it is comprised of three people: Manny (a.k.a. v12aero), phnxhawk and Charles (a.k.a. hey_kuya).

Manny and I (phnxhawk) started this blog to share our interest in boomerangs--throwing and tuning, making our own rangs, as well as unraveling the science behind them. As we continue our journey into the world of boomerangs, we hope to make new friends and to expand our horizons. In this blog, we will post such things as videos from our regular throwing sessions, musings and lessons learned from throwing, and thoughts on making our own rangs.

Manny and I started throwing boomerangs since Spring 2009. It has been a long road as we developed a semblance of technique for throwing 'rangs. Nevertheless, after many a bruised hand or windy day, our fascination with these returning throwing sticks remains undimmed. We most certainly have more to learn about boomerangs, but we'll keep at it as long as we continue to have many happy returns.

Just dropping a line...

--by phnxhawk--

I just wanted to take a few minutes to write a post to let anyone following our blog know that we are, indeed, still alive and itching to put out more content. For my part, my work schedule exploded just after the new calendar year started. I have been so busy that I was quite surprised the other day to find that March was right around the corner!

Anyway, a brief boomerang-related update: I just acquired a small stock of 5.0 mm, 10-ply Finnish birch from which I intend to carve some boomerangs. My post about my initial forays into the carving world using hobby-grade stock is overdue, but will come soon. Hopefully, I will soon have more good news to report.
