Dry Casting Report, 12 June 2005.
Dry Casting  

We had a real winter's day for the June casting, with overcast and rainy conditions and again a slight headwind which kept distances down (except except for one caster, Keith Heaney). It was a very cold day as well, but despite this we had 21 in attendance.

Keith Heaney and his son Marlin (mini junior) made the trip down from Kalbarri and it was not until the 112 gram distance that he hit his straps, having a few break offs and out of court in the 56 gram and artificial bait. His two casts were 188 and 178 metres and the nearest caster to him was Nick Allsworth with 153 and 162 metres.

Later he cast even further in practice which shows his potential as a distance caster. A bit more emphasis on technique and consistency and the results will be very interesting. He is coming down for the July cast. Good to see the young Marlin having a cast as well and he appeared to enjoy himself.

The 56 gram distance saw a tie in the seniors with Malcolm Harris and Mat Sneddon with 25 points. It was good to see Mat back at casting and we hope we see a lot more of him as he cast well all day. Mal Head won the veterans with 23 and Filomena D'Alonzo won the ladies with 17. The longest 56 gram cast was 141 metres by George Holman.

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

Malcolm Harris and Chas Riegert scored 23 in the artificial bait, and Tony D'Alonzo was top in the vets with 20 points and Filomena D'Alonzo the ladies with 17 points. Longest cast was Nick Allsworth with 121 metres.

As was mentioned before Keith Heaney burned up the court in the 112 gram distance and led the seniors, with Allan Jones showing the vets the way with 25 points and Filomena D'Alonzo the ladies with 19 points. She also cast the furthest for the ladies with 96 metres.

Rhys Jones had all his casts in for the three distance events for the junior section with the longest cast of 126 metres.

Annella Riegert had all heard cast in for the distance events and shows great improvements and consistency. Keep it up Annella.

That smoky Trevor Stam led the field in the double Handed Accuracy with 139 points with George Holman scoring 132 points. We will not mentioned the seniors, and in the ladies Vix Alexander won with 111 points.

"Limpy" Willison showed us the way in the single Handed Accuracy with 31 out of a possible 40 and Nick Allsworth next best with 29 along with Allan Jones in the vets. Filomena won the ladies with 25 points.

Winner of the day was Malcolm Harris with a total of 210 points. Allan Jones was next with 208 points.

Looking at the day overall: Good attendance considering the weather, a lot of casts out of court in the distance (we were all cold - that is the excuse) scores in the accuracy with generally lower than normal, Rhys Jones cast consistently all-day, and young Heaney had a go at everything.

Because of the weather the single handed open will be run next month.

Thanks to Terry Willison and Allan Jones for commencing to put the lanes down at 7 a.m. and Malcolm Harris for putting the perimeter flags out. Also those who helped pack up at the end of the day.

Terry Willison will be having a total ankle replacement at St John's in Subiaco on the second of August and we all wish him well.

The election of officers is next month and we are looking for people to run the casting. Chas Riegert has indicated he is prepared to do the computer scoring and recording which is much appreciated and will make it easier for the organisers.

The sausage sizzle at the end of the casting was much appreciated and we ran out of snaggers very quickly. We will blame the weather!! Thanks to Terry Willison and the boys.

Good to see Paul Thompson come down and have a look at us casting. Next time Paul bring a rod or two!!

See you all on the third of July. George Holman.
