Dennis Retter, England team Manager said “I was so proud standing on the podium receiving the Team Gold medal, France have a very strong team but were no match for our lads, and even prouder when the B team received the Bronze team medal when after the first day finishing 7th it looked like a medal placing was way out of reach.

In the 11 years I have been Manager we have won the odd individual medal and with more countries coming into the event there are a lot more casters who can get near to winning a medal on different leads, but apart from Danny Meoskops the World Individual Champion the England boys excelled and took all the other medals with the highlight seeing David Richardson winning Gold on the 150 gramme an achievement no other England caster has done in all the years we have been casting in the Cips Casting Worlds.

I would like to thank Steve Boyt for all the time he spent raising funds , Mark Jakins for putting on a 2 day event to raise funds , Tony Jones for producing Calendars for the fund and to all of those who gave Rods, Shelters, Line Etc. , to get us the fantastic amount of £4042 which was nearly half of our total costs of the event”.
