Dry Casting Report, 3 July 2005.
Dry Casting  

July saw a total of 22 casters present with good weather to start with but towards the end of casting the rain made its presence known. We had a brisk side wind which made accuracy casting very difficult and certainly made it hard to get the distance casts in the court to count, which showed up in the scores as there were a lot of zeros.

Terry Willison, Allan Jones and I had most of the courts ready before the main group arrived and appreciated the help some of the earlier arrivals offered. We did start a little late but some need a bit of practice!!

Chas Riegert led the field in the 56 gram distance with a cast of 149 metres, with five seniors casting better than 130 metres which was excellent. Peter Osborne was most consistent in this event in the veterans and Annella Riegert in the ladies. Rhys Jones had both casts in court with his longest at 116 metres and young Marlin Heaney had both casts in as well.

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

Keith Heaney cast a new State Record in the artificial bait with 159 metres and next longest was Nick Allsworth with 140 metres. Tony D'Alonzo won the veterans and Vix Alexander just beat Annella in the ladies while Rhys Jones had both casts over 100 metres.

Keith Heaney again showed the way in the 112 gram level line with 192 and 184 metres and Nick Allsworth cast well with 172 and 178 metres.

Peter Osborne was best in the vets and Vix again shaded Annella in the ladies. Rhys Jones did some excellent casts in the junior event with casts of 135 and 144 metres.

Accuracy was a very hit and miss affair as there were only seven casters better than 100 out of 200 due to the strong cross wind. That cagey Trevor Stam continued his red hot form with 155 and next best was Terry Fuller with 148 and ever consistent Gary Gildersleeves with 142. There were a lot of zeros. Gary scored the only bull's-eye in this event.

There were four bull's-eyes in the single-handed accuracy, Gary Gildersleeves, Chas Riegert, Terry Willison and Terry Fuller. Top score went to Chas Riegert and Terry Fuller with 26 points, Vix Alexander won the ladies and Marlin Heaney the mini juniors.

In the open single-handed events Chas Riegert set a new distance record with a cast of 100 metres.

Thanks to all who helped put the gear away at the end of casting. Remember Terry Willison is having his operation on 2 August so we will need some helpers early for the August cast. Election of officers was at the Annual General Meeting in July and we need a new Dry Casting Officer and assistant.

The sausage sizzle at the end of the day was well received and to Terry and his helpers a very big thank you. Paul Thompson and John Romano were present keeping an eye on proceedings. They should both bring a rod and have a go.

There will be a 112 gram open distance event at the August casting to prepare those going away to Yeppoon. It may mean we will finish a bit late but it is too important not to run this event on this day.

Those going to the National Championships and who want their casting rods transported are reminded that after casting concludes any rods that need to go must be ready so they can be packed.

Remember also the casting group meeting at George Holman's residence on Monday 8 August to finalise arrangements for Yeppoon, pay Chas Riegert for rod transport and arrange the next State dry casting championship event for 30 October.

See you all on the 7th of August George Holman.
