SOR and Casting for Recovery Update

Teresa, Me and Rebecca
Wonderful time at SOR this year, with great food and spirits, super company and amazing casting from the men and women, it’s impressive to see records being broken (Travis Johnson making a 198 foot cast) and the women making cast over 140.  The limits keep getting pushed, the casters keep progressing and new competitors enter each year .

Happy to raise funds again for the Northern California and Northern Oregon CFR retreats based on my longest cast.  (Made a 142 and still have the current record for longest cast!)  Congrats to all the women for kicking ass this year!
