2001 WORLD COMPETITION
This event will be held in Phoenix, AZ on March 16th, 17th & 18th, 2001.

Rules will be *IKTA format.

KNIFE CONTEST
1st Place - $1000 & Trophy
2nd Place - $300 & Trophy
3rd Place - $100 & Trophy

*** The IKTA rules call for a thrower to throw at a single target (you can change each round if you wish) with 5 throws, BEFORE retrieval.

Set #1 is from 8 ft. = 1/2 rotation required.
Set #2 is from 12 ft. = 1 rotation required.
Set #3 is from 15 ft. = 1 1/2 rotations required.
Set #4 is from 18 ft. = 2 rotations required.
Set #5 is from 21 ft. = Any rotation may be used, as long as the knife sticks point first.

The targets are 16" (worth 1 point), with an 8" secondary circle (worth 3 points) and the Bullseye is a 3" equilateral triangle (worth 5 points).

The maximum score is therefore: 5 (throws) x 5 (sets/distances) x 5 (maximum score per throw) = 125.

(It usually takes around 60 to make the finals. A 70 + will always be competitive, although most of the experts probably average more like 80-100 at home.)

TOMAHAWK CONTEST
1st Place - $300 & Trophy
2nd Place - $200 & Trophy
3rd Place - $100 & Trophy

Tomahawks must have a separate head and handle.
Cutting edge must not be over 4 inches.
No double bit or spikes.
No regulations on handle length.
Tomahawks will be thrown at 4 different rotations:

1 Turn
1 1/2 Turns
2 Turns
A Distance Event

The target will consist of a playing card placed on a log end.

Contestants will have 5 throws at each rotation. Thrower will throw one tomahawk at the block, retrieve it, and repeat his 4 other throws.

No hawk will be touched prior to the judge scoring it. Touched tomahawks will be counted as "0" points.

Judges decision is final! Close throws will be judged by 2 judges.

Scoring will be as follows:
- A stick anywhere in the face of the block scores 1 pt.

- A cut of the card scores 2 pts. A center cut (sticking the card without any sides being cut) scores 3 pts.

All contestants will throw in a safe manner. Any unsafe or dangerous throwing will be grounds for disqualification.

All spectators and contestants will have respect for contestants while they are throwing, no distractions.

And the final rule... EVERYONE MUST HAVE FUN!!!

Distance Throw Trophy
The target will be an IKTA triangle type with an 8" circle printed on 8.5 X 11 paper and centered on a log face.

The Long Distance event starts at 25 minimum. All knives that are thrown and stick in the target are counted by the HIGHEST LINE CUT.

Knives will NOT be scored, until all five knives are thrown. No knives will be moved by anyone who is in the contest, INCLUDING the thrower.

Knives will NOT be straightened, and CLEAVER hits count, "the highest line cut." (No score for knives that stick 180 from point (handle first), or that have NO PART of the blade stuck in the log.)

The scoring will be as follows:

STRAIGHT COUNT
A bullseye = 5 points
8" ring....= 3 points
A stick in the paper = 2 points
A stick NOT touching paper, but on the FACE of the log = 1 point

DISTANCES

Extra points
25 - 29 feet distance = Straight Count
30 - 35 feet distance = Add 3 point to each sticks.
40 - 45 feet distance = Add 5 point to each sticks.

Competitors are allowed to throw from behind whichever line they wish.

The round will start with a contestant coming to the line(s) of their choice, and throw THREE (3) practice knives. After retrieving those knives, they will pick their throwing distance line; it will be recorded and marked by the forward most foot.

All five knives MUST be thrown from behind this line, or farther. (You can always move back to add to your score, but you can not move forward.)

This second throw, will be with all FIVE (5) knives, for score.

Ties between CLOSE lines vs. FURTHER lines, are ruled in favor of the longest thrower.

SUDDEN DEATH
A Sudden Death throw off for a possible tie from the same line. This will continue til there is a winner. The contestants will return to their ORIGINAL line, same as before. This time only, THREE (3) knives will be thrown.

High scores will be added to the original "five knife score" for the final, "Total winning Long Distance score".
