Yeah Eric, I guess someone casted so far.. that they projected us (10) years into the future! But seriously, I really proposed to do this event because there were people here in the past, i.e. Neil(1014) that were interested in doing this a year or two ago.. Don't think we have enough participants? but we might try something at the X-Mas Dino hunt...maybe! I have a squidder that is begging me to try... Perhaps you guys could hold a casting contest in the South at one of the get-togethers?

I cannot make this event. And btw, I can't cast that far anyways.

Oops, forgot to add, I will be considered a senior citizen in 2019. Well, almost.

Hmm... Dave (Glowlight) has something he calls a "senior-citizens rig," so maybe you can use that? And, if you don't have "Tugboat Charlie" by then, just fu-git-a-bout-it..
Seriously Mel.. bring your Squidder, and we will battle it out... or, as before you are launching out of San Leandro Marina, stop by the little pier and we will see who can cast from the pier to the opposing shore. So, A.M. it is... instead of High-Noon...

By unanimous decision, Dan the Fisherman won the casting contest by casting from the San Leandro Marina Pier and hitting the West bank (3) times to Red Fish's (1) hit.

Oh, the "useful information": Dan used the new Shimano Baitrunner spooled completely with 50# Power Pro and a four ounce river-sinker with a 10 foot (a long a long butt of about another 1/2 foot stock) Lamiglas spinner.
Red Fish used a Penn 525 spooled completely with 15# Berkely Big Game and an 11 foot Lamiglas with a 4 oz cannon-ball sinker.
No shock leaders....
