Is it a bird ... Is it a plane ... Of course it's not ... It's Super Dwayne.💪 Blink, and you'll have missed him, as he became our first Free Spirit to reach Five Million Metres for the season.

Dwayne - :D =D> x 5,000,000 👕👕👕👕👕

Some poetic licence was required for the first line. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

When your surname is McLaren … Then your erg will be Formula 1 … And … after racing up the Meterboard … Your hard work💪 and ‘ fun ‘😬 :wink: … has resulted in One Million Metres for the season.

Michael - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

Thank you Max, for the stacks, of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. ^O^ =D>

And for landing exactly on 1,000,000 metres, here is a virtual 🏎 to help keep you in Top Gear.👍 8)

Thank you Jill, very much appreciated. If I don't take December off and if I enter into some March madness and if I'm lucky I might just add another million by the season's end :fssmile:

Of Juergen … it must be said … just when does this boy go to bed? :shock: :fsbgrin: :fswink: Obviously, not very often ( yes, I have read his training thread ) :fsbgrin: :fswink: because he has now reached, in double quick time, Three Million Metres for the season.

Juergen - :D =D> x 3,000,000 👕👕👕🧢

Much kudos for another powerhouse performance - three million down, two more to go.💪👍 8)

Next up we have Free Spirit, Jon ... and … because he hails from Kansas State … will be familiar with this song … ‘ Home on The Range ‘. Jon ( Esau ) must also be very familiar with ‘ Home on The Erg ‘ because he has rowed so well in order to reach his first Million Metres for the season.

Jon - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

Thank you very much indeed for the ginormous amount of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. :) =D> ^O^

Jon, ( and everyone else ) please keep accumulating those metres👍 8) because the last time I looked, Team EngineRm were well in the lead with 4,301,206,987 metres. :shock: :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Thank you Barbara. :)

With his accuracy and love of numbers, Paul kept this thread in excellent order. Unfortunately there are times when I can get a weeny bit muddled with my noughts - I recall that I once congratulated you on reaching 2,000,000,000 metres. :roll: :lol: I therefore had to come up with a cunning plan of distraction - everyone would be so busy checking to see if they had the right amount of T-shirts, that they wouldn't notice if they had the right amount of noughts. :lol: :wink:

Take care dear girl - will send you an email.xxxx

Another chance denied her … ( that’s me by the way :fsbgrin: :fswink: ) to overtake young Mr Schneider … because he has now pulled even further ahead … in order to reach Three Thousand Metres for the season.

David - :D =D> x 3,000,000 👕👕👕

Well done for rowing 160,362 metres so far for the Holiday Challenge. That’s a splendid start. ^O^ =D>

And well done to all of you who have been able to take part in the Holiday Challenge.👍 =D> It’s not always easy for everyone during the busy run up to Christmas, to find the time, energy and sometimes motivation, especially if partying proves to be more tempting then rowing. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Huge admiration for Crazy Bears, Juergen and Swinny =D> =D> ^O^ ^O^ 💪💪 - had to laugh at Swinny’s description of Juergen “ smashing it “. As long as both of you avoid ‘ crashing it ‘ … 😬

I am wondering if Jurgen’s erg has been fitted with a drogue parachute … :fsbgrin: :fswink:

This feels like déjà vu … almost … :fsbgrin: :fswink: Is it a bird … Is it a plane … Of course it’s not … It’s ‘ Always in The Fast Lane ‘… Dwayne. Smelling salts had to be administered to the Road Runner, :shock: :fsbgrin: :fswink: as Dwayne flashed past him, to become our first Free Spirit to reach Six Million Metres for the season.

Dwayne - :D =D> x 6,000,000 👕👕👕👕👕👕

One more T-shirt to go and you will have the full set.👍 8)


I must face the truth😬 … there’s yet another youth … who’s kept way ahead of me … so three cheers for Lowell Lemoine … from Charleston, WV … because he has now reached One Million Metres for the season.

Lowell - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

Thank you for the marvellous amount of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. =D> ^O^

Lowell, I see from your profile picture that you enjoy being at the top, so stay on top form all the way to your next million metres. :) 👍 8)


Next up we have a Crazy Bear🐻 … who’s from the Isle of Wight … where all that wonderful sea air … has helped him zoom right … up the Meterboard to reach his first Million Metres for the season.

Swinny ( aka Jim Swinfield ) - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

Many thanks indeed for the myriads of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. :) =D> ^O^

Swinny, if my counting is correct you only have 8 x 21,097 to go. Wishing you all the energy and determination to complete the CBC.💪👍 8)

PS - I was born and brought up in Hampshire and went on many day trips to the IOW. Catching the Waterloo to Portsmouth train, going through Butser Tunnel and down to Portsmouth Harbour. Happy days. :D
