Both the competition as a whole and the individual events will be held according to the uniform and official European Knife and Axe Throwing Rules.


We will do the following events:


-         Knife 3 m, 5 m, 7 m and 9 m;

-       Axe 4 m, 5 m, 7 m and 8 m (in case of the axe 5m event, it is mandated that the axe must be sticking with its handle pointing upward!);


For each event, the thrower has to show up with a set of three throwing tools (knives/axes), of uniform shape and material (same "model"). Exceptions only for throwing tools damaged during the meeting.


The events of the championship will also be supplemented by the knife (3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 m) and axe (4, 5, 7, 8 and 10 m) walk back, speed, silhouette, long distance knife and long distance axe events.


Combined rankings and total combined rankings


For the precision events, there will be four combined rankings: For women, men, knives and axes separately (on condition that there are at least 6 female participants!). Knives combine the 3m, 5m, 7m and 9m knife events, axes combine the 4m, 5m, 7m and 8m exe events.


The total combined precision ranking is the sum of the above-mentioned combined knife ranking and combined axe ranking.


Titles to win:


-         Rigac Champion 2016 (knife 3, 5, 7, 9 m; axe 4, 5, 7, 8 m; speed; silhouette; long distance knife; long distance axe /male, female/) (24 titles)

-         Rigac Combined Champion 2016 (knife, axe /male, female/) (4 titles)

-         Rigac Total Combined Champion 2016 (total combined /male, female/) (2 titles)

-         1st, 2nd, and 3rd Lad of Jancsi Rigac 2016 (knife WB, axe WB /male, female/) (4 titles)

-         Combined WB Champion 2016 (combined WB /male, female/) (2 titles)

-         Absolute Rigac Champion 2016 (absolute /male, female/) (2 titles)


For the title of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Lad of Jancsi Rigac 2016 in Knife/Axe Precision Throwing, we will use the walk-back-mode. Those contestants are allowed to take part in these walk-back events who fall within the first 20% of the combined knife ranking or the combined axes ranking, respectively, but at least 20 throwers per event. (In order to determine the first 20%, the points achieved in each event will first be normalized, and then summed up. Normalization here means that in each event, the best thrower will receive 100 normalized points. This ensures that a point in a more demanding event (like 7m knives) also carries more weight in the combined ranking. The event will be held at the following marked distances: Knife 3, 4, 5, 6, 7m, axe 4, 5, 7, 8, 10m. The thrower will throw one round of three throws per distance mark, starting behind the closest distance mark and moving back behind the next distance mark after completing the previous round. The total number of throws in one run is thus 15 throws (5 distances x 3 throws per round = 15 throws). This whole process will be then repeated three more times, resulting in 60 throws in all (4 runs x 15 throws per run = 60 throws). The thrower does not have to stand at the distance mark, but can move back at maximum 99cm.


The combined WB ranking is done by the summing up of the points reached in the knife walk back and axe walk back events.


The absolute ranking is made by the summing up of the points reached in the total combined ranking and in the combined WB ranking.


Be sure to read all relevant background information, rules and regulations about the competition!


Everyone is waited for by the organizers!
