Dry Casting Report July 2002

Listening to the forecast for Sunday, we all got out our wet weather gear and waterproof boots and got ready for some "wet casting".

But whoever organised the weather did a magnificent job. Sunday dawned cool, with some clouds which looked like they held light rain, but stayed sunny and breezy for much of the morning.

And the breeze was a good westerly, coming from behind us instead of all those head winds we have had for so many months.

The breeze was great for the distance events, but added some challenges for the accuracy. But the grass was dry, so we didn't have to keep wringing the water out of our accuracy pom poms, like we did on the dewy morning in June.

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

Just check out those distances! Chas Riegert and Nick Allsworth each threw 112 grams 175 and 180 metres, which were new club records. Six casts were 169 metres or over.

Chas threw 56 gram 169 metres and five 56 gram casts were 150 metres or over.

Despite the wind, there some bursts of good results in the accuracy. Tony and Terry were marking some of the veterans double handed accuracy, and all scores for casts at one target were 17 or over.

Terry immediately proposed a quick change to the rules similar to the "catch and release" fishing rules, and asked if he could be credited with the average of everyone else's cast - but no go.

His first cast was a 17, helping to keep up the average, but the second cast was "only" a 14, so dragged the average down. Lots of good natured ribbing about that.

Once again we had several visitors and new members looking for dry casting tips and tuition, and thanks to George once again for all the effort in looking after them.

One visitor came all the way from Three Springs after reading about dry casting in the AAA articles in the West Coast Fisherman, and others came from the AAA clinics, and have since applied for club membership.

Some of the 112 gram weights were burying themselves 150mm into the soft grass. Weights with short plastic tubing were very hard to find, since only a little bit of the tube was visible.

Please make sure all of your plastic tubes are close to the maximum length of 250mm. It's also very hard to see these as they come through the air.

Keep it straight and long.

Willo and TerryF.
