Dry Casting Report December 2003

What a magnificent day!

The weather Gods smiled upon us and there was NO DAMN EASTERLY wind blowing into our faces on a beautiful sunshiny day. A modicum of a southerly breeze gently caressed our brows as went about our monthly ritual of casting.

Hang about, this is getting a little too poetic here. It was an excellent day for casting. Enough said.

Eleven seniors, eight veterans and two ladies turned out to pit their respective skills against each other. I think from perusing the results that the best competition of the day was between the two ladies.

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

Vix kicked off winning the 112 gram, but muffed the Artificial Bait letting Annella get in there. The double handed accuracy Vix was back in front again (just) and Annella exchanged places again in the Single Handed. At the end of the day there was only ONE point separating the two ladies, with Vix taking the final honours.

For the first time that I can remember, the overall result of the day was a tie between Garry and Roy with Roy's superb effort in the single handed getting him home to the winners circle and a share of the club record.

I will comment that without Bob present to stir the vets along, they took their time completing the distance events. I appreciate that with the warmer weather they didn't want to push some of the old fellas too hard, but to take a morning tea break, boil the billy and have a cuppa half way through the event. I know we are pretty lay back but that's pushing the point just a little bit don't you think..

At the completion of the normal events, a 112 gram open event was run with 10 competitors giving their best. By this time the wind had picked up and turned to come from the west a bit. This obviously aided a few casters. Joe Pull the other leg let go a beauty. Must have had the weather man turn the wind up at just the right time. A prospective new Club Record of 195.9 metres and the longest cast made in Western Australia in competition (by the merest 800 millimetres, 80 centimetres, no 8 decimetres or 0.8 metre sounds better). Congratulations Joe.

Until the 4th January 2004, stay safe and enjoy the festive season. TT2 (Tele Tubby 2) - DCO
