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.
