Dry Casting Report, 4 December 2005.
Dry Casting  

One of the few things I missed whilst I travelled around Australia was the monthly gatherings with my fellow club mates on the Yokine oval. The comradery and friendly competition was great. I'm glad to be back.

With plenty of help the casting arena was set out quickly which gave me time to relax and get in a bit of practice and enjoy a cup of coffee.

The rain failed to show up and the winds were behind us for a change. The group came together, volunteers grabbed the scoresheets and we headed for the oval.

Being with the Vets on the distance court I was very impressed with the new laser measuring equipment. Having Alphonse and AJ running the ropes and moving us along we completed the distance events. Poor old Trev had a finger problem, Cookie was trying too hard, the "girls' were very competitive . Sharing the honours with AJ and Cookie was just a bit of luck.

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

The wind was playing havoc with Alphonse's flowing locks but it did not deter him from coming up with the talent and trouncing us all in the single handed event. The bullseyes by Terry and AJ pushed him harder to get one to. He was really on fire and carried his talent over onto the double-handed event also and gave us a fine exhibition of casting to win that event too.

At least the huge grin and that little jump of joy by Vix when she got her bullseye gave us something to smile about. Even Cookie got into the act and scored a bullseye too.

Overall the master of double handed events "Garry" won the day and took top honours for the most points but only just from Alphonse.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome back the assistance in collecting the gear and sharing another enjoyable morning. The cold drink and burnt snag from Peter was a reminder that not much has changed.

December Night Cast and Barbecue.

Driving down the road towards George and Kay's place, the rain started to spatter quite heavily onto the windscreen. Where's summer?

Thoughts of poor attendance and an early night crossed my mind. The rain disappeared, the mob turned up and only standing room was left. Another heavy shower just before dark did nothing to dampen anyone's enthusiasm and the barby was fired up with everyone helping with the cooking.

As the sun went down I quietly went down to the oval and set up a couple of targets.

The call went out for the hopeful to grace the oval with their casting gear and glowsticks. The assortment of glow stick lights flipping through the darkness looked like a family of glowworms on a drunken spree. I can tell you that by the end of the evening quite a few should have been breathalysed (or dope tested).

Talk about wayward chuckers! Some couldn't even get close even though the target was only 10 metres away. Give them a try at a target at a longer distance and "some" actually got close. The gasps of astoundment at some small success carried across the oval.

There's one newcomer to the night casting that destroyed his total score by hitting the poor old marker. The said marker couldn't move fast enough because his pockets jingled with coin.

After a very humorous evening the final outcome saw "Roy the Boy" accept a gracious defeat and came THIRD.The darkhorse "Frightful Fuller" overcame heavy competition to be SECOND.

We have come to the conclusion that the bloke that won has been passing a furphy to us all for years and has silently been practicing. Still he did receive warm applause from all when we handed the trophy to Cookie. First time he's ever won something for casting, so I bet it gets polished regularly.

Except for a short shower, the evening was very enjoyable and I congratulate all those who attended and participated. Watch out fellas, because Tina and Wendy had a ball and will give you curry next time. As usual Pete should have stayed home but he is very trying.

Thanks to George and Kay for their hospitality.


December night casting scores.

You won't find the rules for night casting and the target distances in the Club's Competition Rules, but there's a lot in common. As it turned out, there were 5 casts to "longer" distances which were scored out of 25 using the double handed accuracy measuring tapes, and 4 casts to "shorter" distances using the single handed accuracy measuring tapes.

Adding all this up, the best scores were 48 out of a possible 125 for the longer distances, 31 out of a possible 40 for the shorter distances, and total 69 out of a possible 165 combined. Somehow, 3 bullseyes were scored.

It is not easy to judge the distances in the dark! But it is great fun, so remember for next time!
