Well finally git some video footage sorted but wasn't able to get a soundtrack that I liked to match to it after spending 4 hours listening to various ones that I have on file.

Conditions were a bit strange with a low barometer and variable wind that didn't always run down court as was hoped. We did however see a few PB's from both are overseas visitor Neil who did well with a borrowed XTR sport and his 6500. As well as improvements from Paul and Graham as well. Well done to the guys and look forward to seeing more in the future.

A special thanks also goes out to Julie ( Mark Johnson's wife ) who provided lunch for us, it was greatly appreciated from all of the guys.

Results were as follows.

Neil Angus 214.65 meters on the 150 gram and 213.75 :)PB on the 175 gram ( on .31mm)
Graham Johnson , 169.15 on the 100 , 181.78 :)PB on the 125, 174.55 on the 150 and 158.6 on the 175.
Paul Bayach at only his second comp using a borrowed ZTi hit a new Pb of 148.6 on the 125 gram :)
Murray Healy also back from a forced absence hit 120.46 on the 125 gram
Jeremy Schrader , 206.8 on the 100, 212.16 on the 125,227.8 on the 150 and 206.83 on the 175 gram.
Mark Johnson was in the wars worse than me decided to to record a distance.

Also Shawn Vines came down for a look and was happy seeing what could be achieved and will be back hopefully for the next round.

All in all a good day out with friend and look forward to doing it again soon.

Overall, a fun couple of hours - not super impressed my my 260 considering the howling gale, but have only been trying Danny's style full on for a couple of weeks - hopefully it will improve.

As for the Vic guys - well done - good on you Neil for a pb and Graham - could teach Mr. Schrader a thing or two about sinker position Graham, good effort. Your timing and his strength would be nice.
