(#'s issued in sequential order)

(we test you at events)

motto: "If you hit the bull's-eye,
it shows you can - but if you hit
it again, it prove you meant to."
3 - You will also be eligible for random drawings throughout the year for used equipment we may be replacing, t-shirts, bumper stickers, festival tickets and more. There may even be a special gift awaiting the 100th member to sign up but don't tell anyone I told you.
And no, we won't tell you in advance what number you will get. As orders come in, we will assign numbers in the order we recieve payments for membership.
In between appearance dates we will update a new page on our website that lists everyone's name, id # and ranking as a knife and ax thrower.
You may test for free at ANY event we are at. You will recieve 10 minutes of warm ups. Then you will be tested for accuracy. Your results will be posted on our website shortly after with your new rank.
You may test twice per day and your highest score at any event will be used as your rank. For example you test at a 2 day renaissance faire, your higher of the two scores (one from each day) will be your overall rank for that event.
Possible ranks will be:
BEGINNER - you stick some and bounce some. You don't practice regularly but are always ready to give it a try! It's totally for the fun of it.
THROWER - You stick some whenever you throw, you're learning to control your accuracy, distances and style. You try to practice now and then or maybe regularly. Fun is the key but you definately are known as a knife or axe thrower.
HOBBYIST - High dedication. You practice semi regularly and usually stick most of the time. You may have a trick shot you are comfortable with. You throw for the fun of it and look to maintain or improve your skill.
EXPERT - You throw it, it sticks...when you want, where you want. You are proficient and capable of accurately correcting your own mistakes. You have your own target and have found a favorite knife/axe you like to throw with.
ACE - Any target, any time...the bull's-eye is where you work; it's your comfort zone.
