And let's not forget the senior's and women's divisions:

Congratulations to Lee Davison on his second senior's title, notably improving both his total and longest cast (152 ft) from 2015.

And Whitney Gould took home her fifth championship in style, with, if my records are correct, new women's SOR records for both total score and longest cast (150 ft). One note, if you do not know the course, the women, literally, 'hit the wall' sooner than men due to a different casting position, so getting to the magic 150 marker is especially notable.

It was after i saw Whitney Gould on video, showing her casts with the Burkheimer Rod, and what she said about them, made my mind up for ordering, now have 2 and I want a Salt aswell. Fantastic to hear she won, in style...
