Results – Dodleston, Cheshire. 18/09/21

The Dodleston venue was selected to replace the Oswestry event (due to issues with the grass not being cut in previous years). The ground was ideal for the casting comps and instruction given its large area and lack of surrounding obstructions for the wind. Unfortunately the strong wind hoped for by the competition casters (but perhaps not the instructors) was not forecast but we did have a consistent, light southerly. The competition events kicked off with a very exiting accuracy event where Kei broke the overall record – he held this record for all of 4 minutes before TC grabbed it back. 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:
