JCA tournament results, Oct 4 & 5, 2008

Hello everyone,

I just received the JCA "Anglers Class Master's" International Casting Competition results and have attached the Word document which has both single hand, two hand and spey casting results.

Gordon Armstrong from Carron Team won both 16ft and 18 ft spey casting competitions, congratualtions and great casting Gordon!

Knut Syrstad from Loop LTS, Norway came 3rd in the 18ft class, despite getting very sick in the final rounds. He scored the longest cast in the qualifying round of 58m, so he had a great chance to win. Tough break and great casting, Knut! Knut was 7th in the 16ft class.

Ruari Costello from Carron team came 5th in the 16ft class, 10th in the 18ft class.

The JCA looks forward to more particpation from international casters next year and will provide the date when available.

Just a short summary of the weekend events at this years JCA Masters Speycasting competition.

On behalf of the carron team, I am sure it is safe to say this was the best competition we have taken part in to date.

The set up and judging of the competition was second to none, with the JCA managing to get around 100 competitors through the qualification stages between the 16 & 18ft competitions on Saturday from 10:30 - 1430.

The highlight of the weekend was watching Knut Syrstad throwing 58m in the qualification round, when the wind was less than favourable, what a caster this man is.

Both competitions proved to be very tight indeed and this is testament to the dedication and talent of all the Japanese casters. It is very impressive to see how far these casters have come since I had seen them two years ago.

A big thank you must go out to Nobuo, Kazu and Hiroshi for looking after the carron team, without these guys, even the most simple of tasks (like getting a train) would have been almost impossible, being our Japanese was far from up to scratch.

Once again a big thanks to the JCA, and we can't wait until next year.
