    I do well with the IC but I don't like the #8 shot. My spot gets some high passing shots and felt I was getting too many cripples. I use 7 1/2 with better results.

    I've only ran in about ten HT's but I've never seen a hand thrown mark. Always flyers or wingers. There were 5 different clubs involved. I guess I'm lucky.

    Reid State Park is a quiet place to spend the day and it's right in the Bath area. About 45 min up the coast in Rockland you will have the Lobster Fest in early August. That can get crowded but fun.
