Aub's said he couldn't make it so I made an effort to get to the oval a little earlier, so as to have plenty of time to set up. It was a pleasant surprise to see a bloke make a special effort to be there at 6.30am to assist in setting up the casting arena. He gave me a hand then nicked off to work, so a BIG THANK YOU goes out to the "Big Bloke" Willo.
Well, the wind was up and the weather a little inclement at the start. By the scores the seniors put down some good distance casts but had trouble coping with the wind during the Double-handed event. Still, Nick won the 112 gram event; young Matt won the single-handed event. Mal won the double-handed event and Roy the Boy won the 56 gram event.
How was the day's casting? As we had a good tail wind, records were set by a couple of Vets and one very good young mini-junior. Rhys Jones reset the 112 gram to 88 metres, the 56 gram to 87 metres and then the single-hand to 29 points. An outstanding effort by a lad that always tries his best.
