33' really bad, couldn't keep the stone on my neck at all.
28' not bad but only decent throw out of 3
57' not bad either lil more consistent
72' pretty good for me
no turns, caber was 21' long.
no misses up to 28' not enough gas for 30'
56# for height
spun and cleared 12 but missed 13. it's well within reach though.
moderate beltless speed work with SSB

Highland Games in Laurinburg
It was S.H.A.G. Masters nationals so they got to go in traditional order and the A class started with heavy hammer which was moderately terrible feeling at 830am
73' pr for me
picked better than last week but no turns, it'll come.
up to 26' with no misses and cleared 29 on a 3rd try. threw high enough to clear 31 when trying 32 afterward according to my life coach.
cleared 12' with a flat throw spinning
sucked too much to get 13
36' braemar style. spun twice and sucked
27' sucked a lot, just not patient enough to wait on it.
best event for me on the day, 59' PR
Hot and sunny day but enjoyed it a lot! one more game next weekend.
