Carl and Marilyn Geddes

Tim is a very friendly guy... and Carl likes to make everyone feel welcome :-)

Time for a lunch break!

This is Carl Geddes! He is the one responsible for getting the San Diego Chuckers club together. He hosts throwing sessions twice a week and is the one behind The Chucker Event! (With lots of help from his wonderful wife Marilyn, of course! :-)

People watching the throwing lane...

Left to Right: Chuck Fogarty, the man the San Diego 'Chuckers' was named after! Marilyn Geddes and Jane Fogarty, Chuck's wife.

The Posada Clan! Darlene, Micah and Daniel... who is already a top finisher and fantastic thrower!

Daniel Clark, the funniest guy I know and another great knife thrower. Here he is stocked with 'aiming juice' :-)

Phil Lohbreth, Dave Baker and Roy Hutchinson, who both made the trip from London and me, Scott Gracia.



Roy Hutchinson and C.D. kicking back in the shade!

Don't ask because I have no idea what Roy is doing here??? :-)

Can you guess which of these cars the guys from London parked?

Roy is a true 'half spinner'. He throws a half spin no matter where he is standing. Whether he is 8 feet from the target or 18 feet... he just throws and sticks!

Burl Carl and his son Scott drove 12 hours from Reno, NV to take part!


Come on Todd, you can squeeze atleast a few more knives in there! :-) lol

Tonya Kay and Todd Abrams, 2 great performers and entertainers! (And they throw knives pretty good too!)


A friend of Daniel Clark's named Tzaddi also came to hang out and throw. I wish I could remember what I was looking at but I looked quite perplexed about something??? :-)


1st place finisher in the Youth category, Daniel Posada!!! Way to go Daniel!

Here is a pic with all of the SD Chuckers. They surprised me with a beautiful plaque thanking me for my work in trying to spread the word about the great sport of knife throwing. They even had all of the members of the Chucker sign their names and got them engraved into the target at the bottom of the plaque. That was my favorite day in San Diego! It made me feel all warm and squishy inside :-)

Congratulations to everyone who participated!




Life is Good!
