Winter Outcast Gathering?
« on: December 18, 2008, 18:59:07 PM »
Hmmm ...... I'm getting some keen interest in an Outcasts Gathering before March :shock

Our weather is never going to make planning something in January or February easy, so what do you fancy folks?
We could try a session on grass and wrap up to keep out the cold ...... or I could look at the cost of hiring a sports centre hall for about 4 hrs ( which would be a lot warmer ) I think a hall would probably work out at approx 10 to 12 per head :z3

What do you fancy?
Cheers
Mike

Yeah, I'm in

if it's inside can we have the floor polished so that my line can land then slide a few more yards?

Slick the line with teflon:z4 :z4 :z4

Count me in, quite fancy indoors, it means we can set a date and not worry about the weather.
If we pick a few things to practice like TRACKING  :z4 and perhaps a few of the presentation casts, then there is no reason why indoors would not be ideal.
I might try to learn how to help teach some of them too :roll so i might be of some use this time

Hi Mike

Never really had a chance to cast any distance indoors - great idea - I'm in.

Great stuff

I'll look in to it a bit more next week. The sports centre has quite reasonable height, but I'll try to find out more about the length and if they are ok with our sport.

I think 4 hrs would be about right, but if folk think this is too long, we could try 3 hrs?

Best wishes
Mike

Mike

I think 4 hours would be fine, that gives you a chance to have a bit of a gossipa nd try other rods etc.

Should be able to make that - indoors :? excellent, no need for thermals  :grin

Hi Peter :z16

I haven't tried casting indoors before ........ what do you think the height needs to be (to the lowest light rather than ceiling I guess) a minimum of 20 ft, 25 ft, or maybe even 30 ft?

I've seen a clip of some Norwegian guys casting indoors on their knees - sports hall roof was a little low.
