Dry Casting Report, 9 October 2005.
Casting was held on 9 October which was different to the usual first Sunday of the month, but we still had a reasonable attendance. We would always like to see more members attend.
The weather was cold with a brisk southerly wind blowing and a couple of showers early, but fined up later in the morning. Where's Spring gone?
We had a late start as the organiser was slack, and we also had to "spud in" our new laser measuring device under the supervision of Ian Cook. It took a while to sort out the best procedure, but once a modification or two are done to the tripod and base it should run smoothly. Thanks Cookie for organising all this.
Distances were not great because of the strong side wind. The Veterans were first up with the 56 gram which saw Cookie and Allan Jones with the longest casts of 118 metres. Vix Alexander cast 107 metres in the ladies and Rhys Jones cast 111 metres in the juniors.
Artificial Bait saw Allan Jones with 112 metres, Janet Hughes (ladies) 94 metres and Rhys Jones 104 metres. Allan Jones led the way in the 112 gram with 134 metres closely followed by Peter Osborne with 133 metres and junior Rhys Jones cast 145 metres which was an excellent cast in the conditions.
Tony D'Alonzo showed the vets the way in the double handed accuracy with 140 followed by Malcolm Head with 135. Janet Hughes was top lady with 99 and young Rhys Jones scored 145 which is an excellent score and included a bull's-eye.
Single handed accuracy saw a tie in the vets with Trevor Stam and Peter Osborne scoring 26 points. Filomena D'Alonzo was top lady with 29 and also score a bull's-eye.
In the seniors 56 gram distance, Malcolm Harris was longest with 138 metres followed by Gary Gildersleeves and George Holman 136 metres. George Holman was top in Artificial Bait with 141 metres followed by Malcolm Harris 135 metres. Malcolm also had the longest cast for the day in the 112 gram event with 163 metres and George Holman cast 161 metres.
There were also some good scores for the event by Andrew Aubrey and Kevin Hughes. Gary Gildersleeves blitzed the field in the double handed accuracy with 158 points, and scored a bull's-eye in the single handed accuracy. Andrew Aubrey showed the way with 23 followed by Malcolm Harris 22 and Gary Gildersleeves 21 points.
Even though the wind was gusty there were not that many casts out of court.
Gary Gildersleeves was top scorer on the day with 229, but shared the top spot with Malcolm Harris on 239 points overall after attendance points were added.
Malcolm Head and Tony D'Alonzo had 218 each in the vets and Filomena D'Alonzo top of the ladies with 197. Rhys Jones had 205 even though he did not cast in the single handed event.
Our next Club cast will be on Sunday 6 November and the usual events will be held as listed earlier under Coming Club Events.
Club members are reminded that this is where you can sharpen up your casting skills under tuition and be taught with and try different rods and reels.
See you there. George Holman.
We have commenced an update of the Drycasting recording system which contains all the results and calculations for the year's dry casting, the section winners, progressive scores, top ten, Caster and Sportsperson of the Year, day winners, longest casts, identification of new casting records, etc. etc.
The intention is to automate everything. Or putting it another way - "Dammit computer, We're the boss, we have our ways of making you do what WE need"
One major change will be that the member's names and the day's scores will be entered in only ONE place and every other calculation and entry will be done and recorded automatically.
This will have the advantage that there will not be any possibility of different or conflicting details, and any changes made to fix any wrong entries will automatically flow right through and will not require any other manual changes.
Any system where the same data is entered in more than one place has a good chance that some entries WILL be wrong and the results WILL be different and some will be wrong. A nightmare to find, sometimes.
Once this program is finished, then the total work required to enter and keep the drycasting records will be reduced considerably in future months. In particular, the requirement to count only the best 11 days' scores this year will be easy to calculate.
Some obvious outcomes will be that a more detailed summary of highest score/longest casts will be published, and attendance figures will be added to the day's scores before the Reel Talk is printed, so that the winners including attendance points will be shown in Reel Talk.
Anyone who gets a total on the day which isn't more than 10 points more than the runner up, and doesn't also go to the General Meeting, might find he loses the day's winner crown or is sharing it with someone else. That's the scoring system and them's the rules. See section 3.8.3 "Attendance Points" in the Club's Competition Rules (97 kilobyte PDF file).
