This was a new venue in the south west for the BFCC replacing the Cullompton venue. The conditions for the competition events were very tough; everything between blazing sunshine and torrential rain, flat calms to head winds, side winds and occasionally a helpful wind. As such the results were a bit all over the place depending on whether the caster got lucky with the weather when it was their turn. As usual the competition kicked-off with the accuracy and then moved on to the S55, T38 and T120. In the afternoon the #5, #7 and ST27 outfits were cast. The results are in feet and inches:

#5 Trout Distance: James Evans 124.08; Mike Heritage 104.08; Kei Okamoto 98.03; Tracy Thomas 94.10; Tony King 90.10; Rob Doyle 90.06; Stuart Tod 89.06; Stewart Ross 86.11; Tony Wills 71.00.
