Dry Casting Report, 7 August 2005.
Dry Casting  

The weather was as good as it ever gets for the August casting day. It was a perfect sunny winter's day, giving beautiful conditions for being out in the open, even if the air was a little "heavy" for the casting.

Dry Casting is an outing where we are all together for a few hours enjoying each other's company, and competing and learning at the same time. Then there is the sausage sizzle, which gives everyone a chance to talk over the morning's casting, gear to use, what's coming up, fishing, the state of the world or whatever, over some lunch. Come along, it gives you a chance to get to know the club members as well as learning about casting.

This was a very important casting day as it was our last occasion for getting our team together before they travel east to Yeppoon for the national event.

Distance casting was nothing to write home about as the sinkers just would not travel and the slight side wind and obvious heavy atmospheric conditions did control the distance. Chas Riegert had the longest cast for the 112 gram distance with 167 metres and George Holman was next with 163 metres. Filomena D'Alonzo had the longest cast in the ladies with 101 metres and young Rhys Jones is showing us all how good he is even though the rod he is using is not a large one, with casts of 139 and 142 metres in the junior event.

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

Chas Riegert showed the way in the 56 gram event with 143 and 142 metres. Tony D'Alonzo was top in the veterans with 115 and Filomena D'Alonzo in the ladies with 83 metres. Young Rhys Jones cast 115 and 116 metres which was excellent casting for the juniors and puts him in good form for the nationals.

Artificial Bait saw Chas lead the field again with 131 metres and Joe Pullella and George Holman were next with casts of 128 metres. Alan Jones won the veterans event, Filomena the ladies and Rhys Jones two casts were 109 and 111 metres.

Joe Pullella won the 112 gram seniors event, George Holman the veterans, Filomena the ladies and Rhys Jones the juniors.

Double handed accuracy saw a total of four bull's-eyes scored, two to Gary Gildersleeves and one each to Chas Riegert and George Holman. Gary scored 158 points which is the right time with the nationals coming up, followed by a male Harris with 152, Allan Jones scored 149 in the vets with George Holman 147 and Tony D'Alonzo with 141 points. Filomena led the ladies with 120 points and Rhys Jones scored a creditable 131 points.

Joe Pullella led the way in the single-handed accuracy with 27 points. In the veterans Tony D'Alonzo scored 26 and Terry Fuller 24. Vix Alexander showed prowess in the ladies with 25 and Rhys Jones continued his good form with 26 out of a possible 40.

Gary Gildersleeves was top for the day with 256 and Tony D'Alonzo won the veterans with 231. Filomena won the ladies with 178 and Rhys Jones the juniors with 230.

Chas Riegert had the longest cast in the open 112 gram event with 169 metres, followed by George Holman 160 and Mal Harris with 155 metres.

Thanks to all who helped out on the day I hope we have a Dry Casting Officer by next casting day.

Remember most will be away for September at the Nationals in Yeppoon and to all who are representing us a wish them all the best and safe travelling, from all club members.

There will however be casting in September and it might be a good opportunity for more of our club members to come down and make a day of it. Please make the effort!!

See you all after Yeppoon. . . . George Holman.
