Aborigines use boomerangs to kill bats and small birds for dinner. Yummy as that all sounds, there won't be any bat-wing buffets at Howe Meadow today. Instead, expect plenty of high-flying fun as members of the Cleveland Boomerang School show you how it's done. If you're feeling good about your skills after the 30-minute practice sesh, enter one of the distance or accuracy contests to win some cool prizes. The fee for competitors is $3, which comes with a boomerang for competition use. Spectators get in free. Practice fields open at 9 a.m., and competitions run from 11 to 4. — Barnes 4040 Riverview Rd., 800-257-9477,Clevelandboomerangschl.com.
