Balmy autumn days are beautiful. Except for some wind, this months casting looked to be nearly perfect. Everyone was careful NOT to mention "those damn easterlies" and low and behold, the wind came from the south east and gradually swung around to the south.
Yes we had a little competition from the weather, but nothing like the past.
Hendo and Willow had the fields laid out by the time I arrived at 7:15 am. The die was rolled and groups 1 for the veterans/ladies and group 3 for the seniors rolled out. Single-handed rolled a group 3 as well. In a matter of minutes, the accuracy court was ready to go.
As I was warming up a little at the accuracy, a familiar face from Yamba turned up. Michael Bailey from South Australia was over visiting with his lady and had decided to join us for a morning's casting.
Veterans kicked off on the distance with nine gents, two ladies and a junior going at it. A meagre seven seniors competed for the days honours.
