Well, I would not call it retirement, it was more of a much needed break
my current ld-deprived life is due to bad circumstances, ie no field big enough within reasonable distance.
The next ld event in NA will be at the USBA nationals in Eau-Clair (sp?) next year. that's more in your neck of the woods anyways.
shooting for 140 - 150 is definitly the way to go. no need to aim low.
