Great initiative, Joakim, well done. Due to current restrictions in place in my part of Australia, even training for casting is not allowed so getting at least two casters together will not happen until later. Maybe June is an option for us in Victoria. Not casting is a small price to pay in the current circumstances, but can't wait to get back to it.

Excellent Joakim. Please do post updates here on the Board. This wasn’t possible yesterday in Malaysia but as of today I think it can happen. I’m not sure.

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

This isn't my idea, but I agree it's a great initative!
Sara Tjällden at SCF came up with the idea and Bernt Johansson did a great job on executing it.
Just to clarify - the witness doesn't have to be a caster. If you have enough space in your garden for accuracy, a family member can be the witness and maybe even give it a go.

If people are interested we can setup as many virtual competitions as we like. We just decided to go with 5 of them with 2 weeks running time for each.
