Just came across a pamphlet for this guy while trying to empty out a drawer in my filing cabinet.

I met him at his boomerang booth somewhere in Oregon perhaps as long as ten years ago. He was clearly a craftsman, making boomerangs by hand with enthusiasm and knowledge of his craft.

I bought a boomerang from him, and it really worked!! It would carve an enormous loop in the sky, sometime hovering right above my head. Sometimes it would trace out its fifty yard ovoid in an unpredicted direction, which is how it eventually got lost.

Anyway, I'm going to try to get another one, and maybe even take up boomerang juggling (at night,on the golf course nearby?)...
