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. This was doubly unfortunate as there was actually a decent breeze blowing for once but the distances achieved suffered slightly. All distances are in feet and inches:

#5F – Kei Okamoto 120.05; Zhongxiang Zhu 117.05; James Evans 116.00; Steve Parkes 113.00; Tracy Thomas 112.08; Jac Davies 110.00; Stuart Tod 85.02; George Clarke 80.04; Nigel Conlon 78.04; Matt Clarke 74.08.

#7F – James Evans 130.03; Zhongxiang Zhu 122.11; Steve Parkes 116.09; Matt Clarke 116.03; Jac Davies 114.08; Kei Okamoto 113.00; Tracy Thomas 105.03; Nigel Conlon 95.08; Stuart Tod 95.03; George Clarke 86.03.

B100 (#5F + #7F) Matt Clarke 190.11; Stuart Tod 180.05; Nigel Conlon 174.00; George Clarke 166.07.

ST27 – Kei Okamoto 142.07; James Evans 139.05; Zhongxiang Zhu 138.11; Steve Parkes 135.10; Jac Davies 131.11; Stuart Tod 125.11; Matt Clarke 121.03; Tracy Thomas 115.04; Nigel Conlon 99.03; George Clarke 82.08.

S55g – Steve Parkes 176.03; James Evans 171.05; Kei Okamoto 169.01; Stuart Tod 155.01; Tracy Thomas 140.05; Zhongxiang Zhu 132.10; Jac Davies 129.07; Nigel Conlon 126.08; George Clarke 89.07.

T38 – James Evans 160.00; Stuart Tod 154.02; Steve Parkes 147.02; Jac Davies 144.03; Zhongxiang Zhu 133.07; Nigel Conlon 124.11.

T120 – Stuart Tod 201.04; Steve Parkes 191.05; James Evans 189.07; Zhongxiang Zhu 161.05; Tracy Thomas 135.07.

Overall event: 1st James Evans, 2nd Steve Parkes, 3rd Zhongxiang Zhu

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.

ST27: James Evans 141.02; Kei Okamoto 139.04; Zhongxiang Zhu 132.08; Tracy Thomas 130.07; Gilliaum Vermeulen 128.11; Mike Heritage 127.05; Dean Bass 126.00; David Fisher 105.00.

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!

Results – Alconbury, Cambs. 8th July 2017

Posted by James Evans On July 13th, 2017

On arrival at the sports field in Alconbury we were greeted, for once, by a steady westerly breeze. This lasted just long enough for us to set out the casting lanes, at which point it dropped to nothing. For the rest of the day it varied between no wind and a nice ~5mph breeze, although at times this was blowing into the rod hand of the right handers.

Results – Oswestry, Shropshire. 17th June 2017

Posted by James Evans On June 21st, 2017

The weather for the Oswestry event was a very warm 29°C with a very inconsistent breeze. This breeze swung through 90 degrees during the course of the morning prompting a casting lane re-alignment. The inconsistent nature of the wind meant that some casters had favourable conditions, some had still air and the very unlucky ones had it blowing into their casting arm. The distances are in feet and inches:

This event saw the formal introduction of the 55g Salmon overhead distance to the list of the competition events. This was cast in the morning, alongside the T38 and T120 events. Two 55g outfits, kindly supplied by Steve Parkes and Brian Szukala, were cast by everyone – the highest result is posted here.

The day itself was sunny and warm with a patchy breeze. Unfortunately this swung round during the morning events leaving some of the right handers dealing with an on-the-shoulder wind. The lanes were re-orientated for the #5, #7 and ST27 that were cast in the afternoon.
