Dry Casting Report, 7 March 2010.
Dry Casting  

A strong gusty wind blowing from the east and the temperature around 30 deg. 22 casters and 3 visitors signed on to enjoy the morning's cast. George and Terry took some other visitors aside and gave tips on casting, etc. Was great to see Mark and Wendy back.

Many thanks to all who set up the courts and to Marcia and Owen for putting out the flags, also to Gary Gildersleeves for collecting them at the end of the day.

That head wind really cut back the distances. The markers said they could see the weights slowing down in the air and just falling down instead of keeping going.

In the Seniors, Peter Pekaar cast a distance of 152 metres in the 112 gram distance. Jeff Hewton scored 2 bullseyes in double handed accuracy.

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

Congratulations must go to George Holman in the Veterans for setting a club record in single handed accuracy with a score of 37, with 1 bullseye and 3 scores of 9. Well done. Also in the Veterans, Gary Gildersleeves had a cast of 136 metres in the 112 gram distance.

Ladies saw Marcia Pekaar cast a distance of 96 metres in 122 gram. Mini junior Sarah Wignell had a cast of 31 metres in the 112 gram.

Section winners for 7 March:- Seniors:- Mark Hansen 199, Ladies:- Marcia Pekaar 169, Vets:- Gary Gildersleeves 262, Mini Juniors:- Sarah Wignell 51

At the April Drycasting, Seniors will be casting distance first and then accuracy. Veterans will cast accuracy first and then distance. Ladies and Juniors will probably cast with the Seniors to even out the numbers in each group.

A single handed Open will be held after the usual events have been cast.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to Vix Alexander for the mix up with the single handed accuracy record. When I announced that Marcia Pekaar had equaled the record, I was unaware that the previous recorder had not been keeping the records up to date. Mal Harris gave me a result sheet dated 31 August 2003 which shows Vix scoring 36 points, yet the current record sheet dated December 2008 has the Women's single handed accuracy record at 29 points.

Dry Casting report Seniors, Ladies, Mini-Juniors

This month, we would like to welcome back Mark and Wendy Hansen to dry casting. Mark has been through a rough time with health issues recently and as a result has missed several months of dry casting. Despite this break, he top scored in double handed accuracy with 118 points and went on to win the Seniors' event with 199 points. Well done, Mark.

Following closely behind Mark in double handed accuracy with 106 points was Jeff Hewton. Two bullseyes on his last two casts received a rousing cheer.

Peter Stoeckel went on to score 24 points in single handed accuracy, making him the winner in that event. Casting with braid for the first time helped Shane Wignell with his overall distances, in fact he won the 56 gram score. Consistent casting helped Marcia Pekaar win the Ladies' division.

This month, we also welcomed our newest Mini Junior, Sarah Wignell. Sarah, Owen and Kaitlin all shared the day's wins in the distance casting events. Sarah won both the double and single handed accuracy events, meaning she was the overall mini-junior winner for the day, with 51 points. This was a great effort for a first-timer.

I would like to thank everyone in our group for helping with scoring on the field, laser duties, and recording scores. Being a small group meant we all had to contribute to the overall success of the day.
