Xmas will soon be upon us.
My list is short.
Here it is :
1. A Casting Club.
|room with a view|
After years of dreaming about it, this summer I flew Jet Blue to Long Beach, CA to compete in the ACA Nationals hosted by The Long Beach Casting Club. What pushed me over the edge westward was an event a few months prior sponsored by the ACA and Cabela's in East Hartford, CT where Chris Korich, Steve Rajeff, Beth Statt, Andy Statt and John Field (ACA Prez') put on a weekend's worth of Casting Games Show 'n Tell.
I flew out to Cali thinking I would try just one or two of the fly accuracy games, but mostly do some fact finding... get the low-down and compete at a later date, at another meet.
The friendliness + generosity of the members was astonishing. Me thinking I would cast in just one game wasn't going to be allowed. While the club itself has an inventory of gear for use by any interested caster(s) I was pressed by the other casters to use their personal gear... yes, really! Results wise, I didn't get any kisses from the podium girls but I didn't embarrass myself either.
readying the targets
I urge any of you guys with an inkling of interest to give it a try.
With any luck Cajun' Bill Clements will cook ya'll dinner !
