    Happy to split categories ("hops" versus "catches") if you guys think appropriate. Alternatively, once this attempt gets beaten, we can just revise rules and add "throws must be at least chest height."

    No, he was throwing it high enough but once it gets so low you can't tell when it's actually leaving the string.

    I'm confused, was he not throwing it high enough?

    Yeah this needs revision or just omission.

    I will submit the 45 in 30 seconds as hops in a new category

    the reason for the height requirement to low they become hops. I just did 45 low tosses at 1 inch in height in 30 seconds but is hard to see

    this should have a height requirement at least chest level. I did 31 in 30 seconds

    Nicely done, Keenan. I see this becoming a competitive category.
