Results 29/4/12

Dispite conditions seeming conducive to good distances, today was a struggle to say the least.. :?
Tee-ing up the lead was extremely difficult at times with gusts of wind blowing the lead or rod out of position mid swing.
Along with this the oche was a swampy mess after a few casts...
Well done Andrew toping the day with a great chuck and yet again some PB's were had,, well done Clive and Dennis..

Results in Meters:
A.Gormley//175g-241.95//150g-259.76
Paddy.C//150g-229.58//125g-240.21//100g-234.51
D.Brock//125g-237.30-Pendulum PB
Cracko//150g-225.13
Lee.Gallagher//125g-210.98
C.Grace//OTG//150g-152.01-PB
S.O.Dea// NCR
O.Duff// NCR

Thank you to everyone who helped setting up and esp packing down the court in the rain,,much apriciated.

sorry i missed it lads.. i probably had the worst days casting to date, although i got a pb it does not reflect how crap i was.. out of 20 odd casts, i got a total of four casts away without hitting the ground or snapping off.
