Results 25-3-12 / 175g

Postby paddyc » Sun Mar 25, 2012 10:25 pm

Today seen the start of our club championships, first up was the 175g and considering conditions were far from ideal some very respectible distances were had, including new comer Paul Mitchel who not only cracked 200yds but blasted his way just over 215yds! Well done Paul.. And to Cracko for pulling it out of the bag on his last cast of the day.. Conditions for a change were dry and sunny with light S/SE winds.

Well done to all, things getting tight at the top on the big lead. Some interesting casts in that vid, one I did myself many moons ago but thankfully not on vid. Have sympathy for the chap but that is definitely the funniest one I,ve ever seen :D
