Highland Games Practice in Arvada

Open Stone, 16#, best throw 22 ft.

Weight for Distance, 42#, 12.5 ft.

Weight for Distance, 28#, 24 ft.

Hammer, 16#, 40.5 ft.

Caber Toss, getting better at the "pick", but still haven't turned one.

Sheave Toss, 16 #, bar was way to high for me, but I was getting 10 to 12 feet height and not hitting the upright, so a little progress there.

Warm-up

Pull-up 4*3

Practice Braemar and Open Stone, 16#

Best Braemar 22 ft.

Best Open 21 ft.

The Open Stone should be better than the Braemar. I'm not landing in a good power position from the glide.

Default 2008-08-30 Rushmore Highland Games

I competed in Master's Class at the Rushmore Highland Games in Rapid City, SD.

16# Open Stone 19.00 ft. (12)

16# Hammer 41.37 ft. (11)

16# Sheaf Toss 12 ft. (11)

42# Weight for Distance 15.52 (11)

Caber Toss 72# by 15 ft., didn't turn it but got 30 degrees, (11)

28# Weight for Distance 23.11 ft. (10)

42# Weight for Height 10 ft (6)

Over all 2514 points (decathlon scoring) for 11th place out of 12.

Making progress as these are all better than I did at Highlands Ranch with the exception of Open Stone. I put a 17# stone 17.95 ft. Braemar style there, and should be good for over 20 ft. using a glide.
