Hmmm ...... I'm getting some keen interest in an Outcasts Gathering before March eek

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 smokin

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 lots of laughs lots of laughs

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  lots of laughs 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 dunno so i might be of some use this time

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

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

Hi Peter thumbs up

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.
