Posted by tracy On March 21st, 2022

In a change to the normal calendar order the Dodleston event kicked off this year’s BFCC season. I think everyone agrees that this is an excellent venue for casting with its wide open field. Worries about the March UK weather disappeared with the forecast of a beautiful sunny day and the competitors were thankful for a steady, brisk wind also (but perhaps not for the accuracy event). The competition kicked off with the difficult (given the side wind for some targets) accuracy event. The T38, S55 and T120 were next up, followed by the #5, #7 and ST27 after a refreshment break. The following results are in feet and inches:

#5 Trout Distance: James Evans 136.01; Nick Moore 119.10; Steve Parkes 118.03; Mike Heritage 104.03; George Clarke 96.10; Tracy Thomas 95.04; Andy Henderson 90.07; Stuart Tod 89.09; Matt Clarke 87.10; Nigel Conlon 81.09; John Lomas 76.01.

#7 Trout Distance: James Evans 150.00; Steve Parkes 134.09; Nick Moore 133.05; Mike Heritage 124.10; Tracy Thomas 123.04; Stuart Tod 103.06; George Clarke 103.05; Andy Henderson 101.10; Matt Clarke 100.01; John Lomas 95.06.
