Dry Casting Report Postal Casting Competition 29 August 2004

Last update 2:15pm WST, 1 September.

Write up, team scores, etc to be added when I'm sent it.

First names have been added for people where I have the name. Will replace the initial with the first name when I find them out.

Please contact us with any comments or extra information or if I've got the results in a wrong column. Some of this information has been copied from the casting forum, and that info was not formatted, so some results may be in the wrong weight column.


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