Results – Bath, Somerset. 22/07/23

Posted by tracy On July 24th, 2023

Unfortunately the forecast of heavy rain for the day meant that the turn out for the competition events was much lower than normal, but many thanks to those that did brave it though. As well as the incessant rain the casters had to deal with a very inconsistent, swirly breeze. They knew it was going to be tough as after 20 minutes of discussion and casting we still hadn’t decided which direction to set the measuring tapes in – it was blowing in different directions depending on where you were stood on the field. As such, casters were often faced with side winds or head winds (or both at once). A decision was taken not to run the accuracy event, mainly because the casters wanted to get into the shelter of the club house for a coffee at that point! As always the following results are in feet and inches:
