As many of you already know NESA casting club has always used Imperial measurements (yards, feet and inches) . However to bring the club into line with the UKSF , from the June event all casts will be measured in metres and centimetres . A brand new metric court has been made from high visibility packing/pallet banding , it’s very strong and very accurate . The groups will be restructured as follows:- Premier - 240m + A group - 220m-240m B group - 200m-220m C group- 180m -200m D group - up to 180m New members will be grouped after first event. Existing members will be re-grouped upon past achievements after distances have been converted to metric. The simple rule is as before, for a caster to proceed to a higher a group he/she must exceed the top limit of the group they are in at 2 separate events. The promotion to the higher group will be immediately after the top limit has been exceeded for the second time. For example 215m in event 1 = placed B group 221m in event 2= stay in B group 223m in event 3 = promoted into A group This means that some people may be moving groups but the addition of the extra group should make it more competitive for all casters . For anyone who wants to just come along and see what its all about feel free you'll be made most welcome .
