I think the BFCC got lucky with the weather in that we avoided rain during what was a very wet weekend. Casting got underway in pretty still conditions and a moderate breeze developed during the morning. Things kicked-off with the accuracy event and then the T38, T120 and S55g before lunch. The remaining events, the #5F, #7F and ST27 were then completed in the afternoon. The results are below, as usual the distances are in feet and inches.

Unusually for a BFCC meeting there was a strong wind forecast for the casting competition and thoughts of big casts were in a number of competitors minds. However, once the lane marker flags were set out it was clear that we weren’t going to have things easy – the flags often indicated winds at right angles or more within the space of 10 metres denoting the swirly nature of the wind. As such many seemingly good loops collapsed due to wind shear. That said, there were some great distances recorded and a number of records produced. Casting commenced with the heavy outfits, T38, T120 and S55g and proceeded onto the #5, #7 and ST27 in the afternoon. The accuracy event was cast last.
All results are in feet and inches:

#5F – Ross Bannerman 127.09; James Evans 125.05; Tracy Thomas 115.07; Kevin White 113.10

#7F – James Evans 136.08; Tracy Thomas 121.03; Ross Bannerman 120.09; Kevin White 118.02; Clive Dunford 95.02; Bob McGinnigle 77.03

In a timed record attempt James Evans cast 146.06 beating the previous men’s overall record held by Mike Marshall.

ST27 – Ross Bannerman 159.05; James Evans 143.01; Kevin White 140.05; Tracy Thomas 127.06

In a timed record attempt Tracy extended her ST27 record to 138.08

S55g – James Evans 194.11; Ross Bannerman 184.08; Tracy Thomas 175.06; Bob McGinnigle 168.07; Kevin White 168.05; Bob Mallet 140.00

T38 – James Evans 180.00; Ross Bannerman 178.05; Kevin White 173.03; Tracy Thomas 144.00; Bob McGinnigle 116.06

T120 – James Evans 223.06; Ross Bannerman 185.01; Kevin White 181.00; Tracy Thomas 170.05; Bob McGinnigle 157.00; Bob Mallet 138.02

Accuracy (points) – Ross Bannerman 45; Kevin White 33; James Evans 23; Clive Dunford 19; Bob McGinnigle 14; Darren L’Enfant 9

Overall: 1st James Evans (11), 2nd Ross Bannerman (12), 3rd Kevin White (24)

Records: Ross Bannerman demonstrated that there is at least one advantage to getting old, he’s now casting in the S50 category and took the following records: #5, ST27, S55g and accuracy. Great casting Ross! Tracy extended her female records in ST27, S55g and T120. James Evans took the #7 overall record which had stood for over a decade.

It was another warm day with high pressure and a light, but very variable, wind that greeted the competitive casters on Saturday. Things were made slightly worse by the un-mowed pitch (despite Tracy receiving many assurances that it would be freshly cut for the day) which caused the inevitable snagging of running lines. The competition started with the accuracy event and progressed with the T120, T38 and Salmon overhead (S55g) outfits. After the lunch break (kindly organised by Heather Dunmall and Tracy) the trout distance, #5 and #7, plus the ST27 events were cast. The results below are in feet and inches:

Unfortunately the field used for this event didn’t look like it had been mowed since the end of the rugby season, this caused issues for the instructors trying to teach clean pick-ups and for the competitors with ticking.

Records: George Clarke claimed the under 13 Salmon Overhead (S55) record – really well done considering it was his first attempt with a double handed rod and a 15ft 10/11 weight one at that.

Badges: Neil Bissell recorded a 30 yard cast with a #7 outfit and Jac Davies cast the T38 over 45 yards (he also missed out on the ST27 J17 record by 1 inch). Well done to both.

Given the forecast for thundery showers we cant really complain about the weather (although everyone knows that distance casters love to blame the conditions), however it was clammy and hot with a very inconsistent (and swinging) light breeze which made getting the best distances difficult. That said there were some impressive scores achieved, the results below are in feet and inches:

#5F: James Evans 124.01; Kei Okamoto 122.02; Mike Heritage 121.11; Tracy Thomas 116.06; Zhongxiang Zhu 104.07; Keith Jones 98.11 ; Gilliaum Vermeulen 94.05; David Fisher 86.05; Dean Bass 81.07; Mike Shepherd 67.09.

Records: Tracy extended the women’s records in #5F, S55g and T120 – really well done, hopefully there’s much more to come in the right conditions. Mike Marshall is also still casting in his 80’s and set a new best in the T38 for this age class – great to see you Mike. Keith Jones also claimed the S50 accuracy record – well done Keith!
