The United States Boomerang Association (USBA) is a nonprofit organization incorporated in 1983 in Connecticut and Ohio to promote the science and sport of boomerang throwing. Members of the USBA receive a quarterly newsletter 'Many Happy Returns' and are ranked based upon their performance in sanctioned competition. The USBA maintains up-to-date files on boomerang manufacturers, materials, clubs, as well as other items relating to boomerangs. The members of the USBA have voted to donate all USBA files to the National Air and Space Museum by annual compilation of organizational records during the fall of each year.
