Dry Casting Report April 2004

The last day of competition for the year arrived and 19 casters turned up at Yokine for an enjoyable day.

The weather presented fickle winds varying from across court to any which way you wanted them, depending on whether you were casting or not and whether it would affect your results. In other words, not much different from the rest of the year, except they were a little lighter in strength. Overcast conditions kept the day pleasant.

A few diehards must have known where they were in the overall picture of things, as they did appear to try much harder than usual.

Some surprising results came out of the day.

Congratulations to Terry Fuller on winning the double-handed accuracy on the day with a marvelous score of 166 points.

The Club owns an air conditioned holiday house at Kalbarri which is available for rent to the public and club members at competitive rates

Not to be out done, Andrew Aubrey decided it was his turn to put on a show and proceeded to smash the existing single-handed accuracy record with a near perfect score. 3 x bullseyes and an 8 improved the long-standing club record from 36 points to 38 points. I believe that this will remain for a long time to come. Well done Aubs.

A point to consider. I raised the proposition of starting casting half an hour later for the months May through August due to the light factor and the time it takes in the mornings to set up the casting courts. All those present were asked to show hands on the proposal, and according to my count, it was agreed to with only one dissenter. So for the next four months, we can get an extra half an hour's practise if you get there at the same time. I think I will probably be spending that extra half hour sleeping.

By the time you read this article, I hope that a decision would have been made on my next suggestion. For the sake of a few more minutes, I think we should include both two ounce (56 gram) and artificial bait in every month's casting with the four ounce event.

At all State and National events, the most important events for Teams is the Artificial Bait and two ounce competitions, yet each month we have the one event pertaining to the individuals, and not the teams environment. Think about it. You get two extra casts each month.

Until next time, TT2 DCO
