Australian National Championships 
17th & 18th September 2022 N.S.W

After a last minute venue change the 2022 Australian National Championships got underway. The weather started fine with calm winds, mid way through the first event the winds increased and stayed that way for the rest of the day. Some throwers were lucky enough to score well when there were brief calm moments and by the end of the day it was even too windy for Australian round and trick catch was reduced to two rounds of single catch with trick doubling cancelled. Overall we all had a great day with new throwers competing and other that just come to watch joined in, in Accuracy, Endurance and on the Sunday Fun day.
Congratulations to all who braved the conditions, those took out 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each event and overall and to those who had a throw for the first time. The final results are.
