Dry Casting Report February 2003

What a day of miracles and disasters.

First up while setting up we got rained on, (in February in Perth!) then Willo had to nick off and go back to work. Bad signs.

Next, Stokes turned up, the wind started to blow a tailwind, Vix brandished a new rod but had a huge grin on her face. Some mumbles in the background, then casting began.

Roy the boy snapped off, (rare event) AJ snapped off, Mal, Peter Mahony, Jim, Trevor, also had problems. In the background I could hear some of those seniors having problems. Even Vix had a break off.

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

But there were good signs also. Chas belted one down 179 metres, Nick 172 metres, Aubs 142 metres, Mal Harris 160 metres, Vix 116 metres, (must be the new rod), and the most telling miracle - Stokes got one over 100 metres.

More success. Bullseye by Roy, Trevor and miracle man Stokes. Even I got into the swing of things and reset the veterans 112 gram and artificial bait club records with a little bit of help from that tailwind.

Chas won the 112 gram event, George won the artificial bait, and Roy easily won the double handed and single handed accuracy and was top dog for the day.

Reminiscing on the day, I can still break out a small smile with memories of Vix and her new rod, the veterans all being straight during the double handed accuracy event, the first tailwind for a long time, the encouraging distance casting by all, the personal best for some, the laughter and comradery. Another great day.

There's a single handed open during next month's casting and some practice casting after the sausage sizzle.

Keep it straight and long. Hendo.
