Dry Casting Report, 5 April 2006.
Dry Casting  

A beautiful fresh morning, an early start and a quick setup gave me time to sit back and relax with a cup of coffee. The arrivals greeted each other warmly and merriment was in the air.

ALL STUFFED UP by one shifty character who endeavored to reach out and dislodge my attention by enticing my natural taste buds with an offer "TOO" good to refuse. Displaying a vessel holding a new brand of amber liquid of the alcoholic beverage and throat smoothing qualities," He" offered a tantalising quantity to tempt my salivating lips. Alcohol at 8am is not my normal start to the day but who am I to refuse.

On an empty stomach the nectar tasted sweet, sliding smoothly down the throat but biting the belly lining. I made a comment on it's qualities and anticipated a tad more but it fell on deaf ears. "Just wanted to loosen you up" said "He".

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

It's a sad state when a fellow competitor will try any way to put you off so that they can beat you in competition. If "he" had left the bottle then maybe he would have had a chance. Must tell him to keep trying.

The Seniors hit the accuracy court and the cheers rang out when "Big Ric" landed a bullseye but all were very quiet for the rest of the competition. The score sheet says it all. George and Mal had a tussle during the single handed event but it was Aubs who had them stuttering with his last two casts. Well done Aubs.

New kid on the block "Scott", had his fellow competitors jaws on the ground when his casting abilities came out. Some great distances that are equal to the best of them and "he's only just started". This lad (and young Rhys) are going to go places mark my words.

The same can be said for one of the "New Old Guys". Watch the score sheets and keep an eye on "Geoff's" scores. Give him 12 months and he'll be a handful for the Vets.

Meanwhile has anyone been keeping an eye on our "junior" competitor's scores. He's been thumping the Vets and from now on will be up there with the Seniors. Good disposition, magical talent, young and still keen. The Club's got a gem.

Congratulations to Mal for being the best in the 56gram, to George for his efforts in the 112gram and to Gary for winning the artificial bait . Being "loose" helped me win the double handed accuracy event but everyone couldn't get near Alphonse in the single handed accuracy.

Not a smile from Alphonse when he scored a bullseye although Gary, Rhys and Vix's huge grins shone through. Why even Aubs still had his grin even after we all finished.

Thanks to all for another great day.

PS. Young Rhys on his last day as a junior equaled his Club record in the 112gram with a cast of 145m and reset the Club record for 56gram from 111m to 127m. Just 2m off the state record. Well done Rhys.
