More than 60 boomerang competitors are expected to return to Conyers for the annual event which tests contestants in speed, accuracy and distance.
Spokesman Jason Smuckers says the key to getting the perfect boomerang toss is to pretend that you are throwing a knife over your head.
But dont throw the rang underarm it doesnt travel as far that way.
However, Smuckers points out, no matter how good your throw it all comes down to weather conditions.
As he puts it, Some of the top competitors bring over a hundred boomerangs to figure out which one to use in different wind conditions.
He says the sport is really taking off in the U.S. because it doesnt require a person to be overly athletic, which is why many competitors are engineers and scientists.
