Dry Casting Report, 1 May 2005.
Dry Casting  

The weather forecast was for rainy periods and showers, but they were a mile off the mark. The day could not have been better with the only downside a slight head to side wind which was not conducive to long casts as was evident in the scores.

Attendance was once again on the light side and it would be nice to see a lot more club members make the effort to come along and enjoy the company of their fellow club members and take up the challenge to see how well they can cast. We even teach people too.

Work commitments have put Chas Riegert in the position where he needed to step down as casting officer, but he will be assisting Terry Willison and myself by doing the computer work which is appreciated. I will help out with the day but I am looking for someone to take over the casting position.

I would appreciate it if casters hopped into and help with setting up the lanes, etc before they put a reel on a rod and wander off and practice. If we need a little extra time to get our gear ready and to do a bit of practice, then I will allow it. If you want to start on time we all need to get down and help set up early. Do not leave it to just a few.

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

Looking at the distance casting scores for the seniors there seemed to be a good percentage sprayed out of court. One caster (who will remain anonymous) managed to split a new Ziplex rod while casting and to make matters worse, it was not his!! It was a lady caster's rod, so methinks an expensive day.

Terry Willison and Nick Allsworth tied for the 56 gram distance, Chas Riegert won the artificial bait, and Nick Allsworth took out the 112 gram distance.

Malcolm Harris showed the seniors how to do double handed accuracy with 129 and Chas Riegert won the single handed accuracy with 27 including a wipeout.

George Holman and Allan Jones were the sprayers in the veterans distance. Tony D'Alonzo took out the 56 gram and in the artificial bait he was joined by Terry Fuller and Malcolm Head with a three-way tie. George Holman took out the 112 gram distance - he managed to get both of them into the court.

Tony D'Alonzo also top scored in the double handed accuracy with 126 and Terry Fuller won the single handed accuracy with 27 points.

Trevor Stam continues to show his prowess in the double handed accuracy showing that his 141 the previous month was no fluke. He also managed a bull's-eye as well. Other bull's-eye as was scored by Chas Riegert and George Holman.

The tussle between the three ladies (Vix, Filomena and Annella) continues and at the end of the day Vix and Filomena tied and Annella showed a lot of improvement, getting all of her distance casts in and tieing with Filomena for longest cast in the 56 gram and winning that event. Vix won the artificial bait and Filomena won the 112 gram distance, longest cast went to Vix with 79 metres.

It was good to see Rhys Jones back at casting and he showed he was not far off the pace and a bit more practice will only benefit him. His longest cast was 125 metres which in the conditions was very good considering longest in the seniors was only 148 metres.

Good to see John Kenyon come down again and this time go through with the boys in all events. It is a bit of a challenge, eh John?

Pleased to see the helpers out with Terry Willison putting the gear away. Keep it up, please.

Look forward to seeing more members at casting next month. We will also have the single handed open at the conclusion, so start warming up.

George Holman.
