NOTES FROM COMPETITORS

"Not only can 'Old Dog' throw some knives..."
by Mike "Alamo" Bainton, Executive Director - IKTHOF/A

"Not only can 'Old Dog' throw some knives but it is now official! The very first recognized World Championships have now taken place. So we can all say without any shadow of a doubt that Bob Pyle is the best thrower in the entire world, bar none. He is also the worlds best Tomahawk thrower and is the World Champion Impalement artist."

"Three speed is the best in the World at speed throwing, and is the 2006 World Champion Speed thrower. He is also the World Champion at Knife Obstacle course."

"John Bailey is the World Champion at Knife fast draw."

"Joe Darrah is the World Champion at Long Distance Knife throwing."

A bunch of schools had field trips planned to come to the events and it seemed like the knife and hawk ranges were the busiest!

This tournament followed International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame (akaIKTHoF) rules shown below. Or for more info visit: http://www.ikthof.com/

RULES

Men's Division (16 and older)
Knife Throwing - Expert, Intermediate and Novice throwers will throw 5 weapons at 5 targets, 4 times per distance for a total of 100 knives (300 points possible). Number of spins and distances are ½ spin (8 ft.), 1 spin (11 ft.), 1½ spins (15 ft.), 2 spins (18 ft.), and 2½ spins (21 ft.). The above are "minimum distances".

Tomahawk Throwing - All categories will throw 5 tomahawks at 5 targets, 3 times per distance for a total of 45 tomahawks (135 possible points). Distances are 1 spin, 1 and a half spins, and two spins.

Sudden Death Qualifier (Men’s Division Only)
All adult male throwers will throw five weapons from ½, 1, 1½, 2, and 2½ spins. Scores will then be tallied and divided into three groups Advanced, Intermediate and Novice.

SCORING
Targets will be approximately 16 inches in diameter, with an inner ring of 8 inch diameter and a 2½ inch bulls eye. Weapons will be scored "as they stick" with a mandatory 5 seconds in target in order to count as stuck. Bulls eyes will be counted as 3 points, weapons penetrating the inner ring as 2 points and all other areas of the target round as 1 point.

Weapons stuck in the backboard of the target will not count nor will a weapon stuck in the target by anything other than its intended point. The point of the weapon must penetrate the target in order to count, and the highest ring penetrated by the weapon will be the score.

After a thrower has finished their turn, a range official will approach the targets and call out the scores as they determine they exist. The score keeper will record the score and then the thrower will be allowed to retrieve their weapon.

If the range officer cannot determine the score, they will call for another official to confer with over the score. Their decision is final and will be carefully considered to ensure a fair and accurate tournament.
