Looking over Hadrian’s Wall … I see … Guy Blackburn has given his all … in order to reach Four Million Metres for the season.

Guy - :D =D> x 4,000,000 👕👕👕👕

Thank you again and much admiration for the terrific effort that must go into amassing your meterage. An expression that seems to have crept into our language is ‘ smashing it ‘ :fsbgrin: :fswink: . Guy, along with some of our other extremely energetic ergers, you are ‘ smashing it ‘. ^O^ =D> 8)

Great going and well done to all Free Spirits who have been able to take part in the World Team Challenge.👍 =D> 8)

Mind how you all go though - don’t overdo things. I shall refrain from saying anymore on the subject. :-# :---) When our son, Ian, visits, ( he’s 37 and 6’ 4”, he usually says, “ Mum, before you say anything, my coat/jacket is in the car. “ :fsbgrin:

Thank you Juergen, although my input was minimal and the only person who can take credit for your excellent and hard won achievements is you.

I do hope that you will attain all the goals that you have set yourself for this season and manage to do so without inflicting serious injury upon yourself.

Juergen, wishing you a safe and satisfying journey in all that you do.

Jill :)

I wrote the above after I had injured my knee and it looked likely that I would have to hang up my virtual oars and part company with you all. Since then though, I have managed to get back to some slow but regular rowing and I’m feeling much more mentally positive about the situation. With that In mind, I would be quite happy, ( especially as no one else has volunteered for the job ) to carry on looking after this thread.

I will not have time over the next few days but will do some catching up with it all next week.

Jill :)

Jill, it's good to see that you're back to regular rowing this month :)
I hope you manage to keep going, and I'm looking forward to your messages on this thread! It will be a while though before I get to a million for this season :wink:

Thank you Jan. :)

At school, although I enjoyed playing and taking part in various sports, indoor rowing will always be my favourite. I hope too that I can keep going and not waste precious opportunities. After all, who knows how much longer I have before Old Nick comes to claim me … 😈 :fsbgrin: :fswink:

This thread might go a bit wobbly at times as I’m running out of rhymes. :roll: :lol: :wink:

Jan, when I have cleaned the dead flies and midges from the crosshairs, I’ll have you, Sheena and a few others, in my sights. Hold that thought as it might encourage you to keep well ahead and out of range. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Will Dwayne … still reign … supreme … as Master of The Meterboard? He has certainly made a great start by being our first Free Spirit to reach Two Million Metres for the season.

On Colin’s heels, at number three … is Guy Blackburn a challenge … let’s see … as he reaches One Million Metres for the season.

Guy - =D> ^O^ x 1,000,000 💸


Young Mr Ian … has been ‘ a flee - an ‘ … up the Meterboard, in order to become our fourth Free Spirit to reach One Million Metres for the season.

Ian - =D> ^O^ x 1,000,000 💸


With so many millions ( 75,402,711 ) under his belt … I felt … that David Schneider ( 73 ) deserved an extra special mention =D> 8) for being our fifth Free Spirit to reach One Million Metres for the season.

David - =D> ^O^ x 1,000,000 💸


Graham Storer is at number six … and … if he sticks … to his rowing routine … in no time at all, his One Million Metres for the season will become two.

Graham - =D> ^O^ x 1,000,000 💸


If you look … you will find … that Paola … is not far behind, as he reaches One Million Metres for the season.

Paola - =D> ^O^ x 1,000,000 💸


Once again, such outstanding effort gentlemen and thank you for helping to rapidly propel the club into second position on The Team Affiliation Standings. :D =D> 8)

Also, many thanks to the rest of our members for your precious metres and precious contributions to The Team Affiliation Standings and although they do not appear on the Meterboard, this will include BikeErg and SkiErg metres too. :D =D> 8)

In case you are wondering as to what has happened to the T-shirts … as a fickle, fashion female, I decided that they were so ‘ last season ‘. :lol: :wink:

Instead, I thought that you might appreciate some ‘ spends ‘ … Word of caution though … This money has wings and if it senses that you are about to fritter it away on an unsuitable purchase … :shock: [-X It takes flight. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

For Colin Brinkman … no lallygagging … because … he’s been too busy bagging … another million metres, which brings his total to Two Million for the season.

Colin - =D> ^O^ x 2,000,000 💸💸

Sterling effort Colin. :) 8) 👍

That’s a fantastically fast million. :) 8) 👍


Another well deserved thank you to everyone for your contributions to The Team Affiliation Standings and to those of you who represent us in the CTC; an extra special thank you to our ladies ( I know, more blatant favouritism :fsbgrin: :fswink: ). =D> 8) ^O^

Extra special congratulations to those of you who have braved any or all of the various distance challenges or achieved PBs or SBs. =D> 8) 👍

After completing the 50,000 metre challenge, Tako is claiming partial insanity, which goes to prove a certain theory ... that you don't have to be mad to be an indoor rower ... but it does help. :lol: :wink:
