There was a dramatic difference in the weather to the previous weekend when we competed in the State Dry Casting Championships at the same location. We had very ordinary mid winter weather for the championships and had an absolutely perfect day on our club cast on 6 November. The breeze was only very slight.
We had 19 casters present, which is a bit on the light side and there were few not present who competed the previous week.
We were pleased to note the return of Bob Henderson to casting after his trip around Australia with wife Leone. Welcome back Bob. Typically he was straight into helping out and took over managing the veterans and ladies for the day. Thanks Bob.
The 56 gram distance always seems to bring up a cluster of out of courts and this day was no different. I managed a pigeon pair. Top cast went to Malcolm Harris 131 metres in the seniors, but Ian Cook did better in the veterans with 134 and the top aggregate score. Malcolm Head, Tony D'Alonzo and Bob Henderson scored well also. Vix Alexander led the way in the ladies with 100 metres.
