The group had it's reunion at the Going the Distance seminar in Delaware. We all had a great time and worked on improving our casting technique. Though we have all come a long way, we still have a ways to go. We are small group, but we are a powerful force. As the director, I'd like to thank Neil for sharing his knowledge. Mark for hosting the seminar and James for putting it together.
We added a new member this weekend. Please welcome and say hello to the newest member of The Remedial Group, jedi_angler.

Earl, keep an eye on that leg. If we put a team together we will need you.

The lifted white rover and Morgan aka "the short legged dog" was spotted this weekend. That can only mean one thing. Did he cause the black out of 2003 to create a diversion? Hmmmm.

Director, The Remedial Group

that's my husband...

Aero, my nemesis.
as usual Capital Longcasters did a great job organizing the seminar this weekend. albeit the casting instruction was excellent. the best part of the seminar was seeing the expressions on the faces of the participants faces everytime they got off a good cast. the defining moment of the seminar came when there was a spontaneous utterance from a proud sponse who yelled, "that's my husband!" after her husband hit a more than respectable cast. "that's my husband" became the anthem of the day.

as for recruitng jedi-angler to the light; the other half of that dynamic duo [the better - half] is a natural to join the forces of the dark side. and as you witness first hand thurston is no friend of the light either. :p

and as for the short legged dog is concerned, he instinctively introduced himself to wheel of a porsche in the parking lot this weekend. the look on his face was priceless too.

:eek:

There will be a Healing of the Force

I am honored to accept my appointment to The Remedial Group, and I will faithfully execute my duties to this proud and hoary organization in the fullest of my humble capacity.

I solemnly swear to preserve, protect, and defend it's Traditions and Principles, and will serve the Group and it's honorable members through all conditions - through break-offs and bird's nests, through broken blanks and short casts, through rain and hail and sleet and snow (well, ok, maybe just "rain").

Anyway... thanks Man! It's an honor.

And (as I wave my hand in front of Ralph) - "Ralph, you will come over to the light side of the Force and forsake the evil Empire. You will train the short-legged brute only to discharge upon the tires of people carrying rifles and large, annoyingly loud pistols. You will restore power to the Northeastern united states."

princess leia

jedi, congratulations and welcome to the remedial group. we are honored to have you.

as for the power outage in n.y. i got a call early this morning or late last night from the "concrete and or waste disposal guys" from brooklyn who incidentally mentioned you by name, politely requestg that i restore the electricity there. guest what? the power in ny is restored. as for the canadians; they'll have to wait. next time they'll remember which side their bread is buttered on.

Princess Leia is Now online....

Longcaster and Ralph - You can find my better half going forward on these boards at "40acres&arod". You've got her "hooked".

At the next casting clinic, I fully expect to be the one shouting "That's my wife!". Hopefully, her casts will be more worthy than my own....

I've handed in my resignation

Unbeknownst to Tod, I have already quit my job. I am now a full time distance caster.

I had a wonderful time - thanks to ALL OF YOU for the fun, encouragment and advice. I'm heading out after work to achieve my next goal of 300 feet.

James - I'm going to win that bet and make it to 600.

My fellow Hispanic, Dominican Anthony: You are the bomb! You are a spy, too, but you're still the bomb.

Richard: I can't wait to go to a pier with the humble shuffle and roll out an awe-inspiring cast. Thanks for giving me something to work toward.

Neil: God bless! Your support and encouragement through one of my hardest decisions -- whether or not to undergo the "appendage reduction" to improve my casting -- brings several tears to Tod's eyes. My appointment is tomorrow...

Alas, Ralph, the dark side can never prevail. Historically speaking, the Death Star was destroyed, Speed Racer won every race, the Road Runner dusted Wile E. Coyote every time and we finally got our 40 acres and a mule. Young Paduan it is written... "Before the end of this world, every knee shall bow and declare Anthony as Director".

kool is everything

Princess Leia, for the record, racer x was way cooler than speed racer. wiley e. coyote, again cooler [as well as a super genius] than road runner.

again, i beseech you to lead the dark side as our queen.

I got mine

Answer to the first question: September 16, 1994 in Brooklyn at the Justice of the Peace.

Answer to the second question: Dunno. You have to have a front man and you're not Tod's type...;)

Thank you Longcaster. I hope to learn a great deal from everyone.

membership has it privileges...

jedi, i am a relative neophyte in this sport too, so i hesitate to offer you too much advice at this stage in your development in fear that you may develop bad habits. practicing good habits invariably will produce good results. stick with the advice from the guys with the proven tehnique and ability; they're the experts. having said that i willing to assist you in any way i can. especially now that you are a member of the remedial group.

doing fine mark, still living life in the fast lane ;)

i,m not sure whats happening about october but we may have to postpone things until the spring, andy has ruptured his ear drum and awaiting a hospital date for an op so that could take anything up to 3 months to sort out.

i hope he gets a lucky break before long, everything seems to be going wrong for him at the moment :(

regards peter

Hey guys and girls, it was an honour and a pleasure to meet up and lead you away from the dark side towards the light. I trust your ultimate quest will be achieved.

40acres&arod: I applaud your decision to have nothing stand in the way of your goal, I sincerely hope everything gets put back in the right place and that Tod can find it in his heart to forgive me, eventually. True dedication to ones calling is indeed the ultimate element.

Take care my friends, we will meet again, especially if the stripers are running next spring! BB

Safe Flight

If you can type at the keyboard, then your flight must have went well. It was truly a pleasure spending time with you and talking about the ultimate sports car. Don't forget the picture [email protected]
