Results – Willesborough, Kent. 28/05/23

Another BFCC competition where there was a decent wind blowing, but as is typical of cricket grounds surrounded by trees the direction was somewhat variable. This became so much of an issue that for the afternoon session each casting position had two tapes arranged in a ‘Vee’ – the caster then nominated which of the tapes they would cast down prior to the clock starting. It should also be pointed out that the accuracy court was set up in the apparent lee of the club house – this proved to be a mistake as the building amplified the swirly nature of the conditions, resulting in lower than normal scoring in the event.
The competition started off with accuracy followed by the T38, S55 and T120 events. After the lunch break the #5, #7 and ST27 were cast with the dual tape layout. The following results are in feet and inches:
