And have used it once on the Buffalo. We do practice on warm lunch breaks sometimes.

We do a couple dedicated kids trips every season, these are always short trips with sevearal stops to swim. During the swim sessions we get out the throw bags and use it to pull the kids in before they reach the safety person at the downstream end. One of the kids is always willing to demonstrate proper technique to newcomers. If you tried to get the kids to listen to an adult explain rescues they wouldn't listen and understand, but playing a game they have real world experience and don't panic if a wave goes over their head, it's happened before.
