Thanks Jill, yes 8 left, I was trying to get them all done buy this Sunday, but did to much and aggravated my back problem on Wednesday, so I'm sidelined for a sec, but I will definitely finish it.

Hi Swinny, I am sorry that your back is giving you problems again and hope that it is only a temporary setback. Be sensible though, ( I'm sure you will :) ) and don't take any risks with ' Dear Old Mr Back '. At the moment he's the only one we all have and he needs plenty of TLC. Steady as you go. :)

This should be sung to the tune of the Snowman - chaps, I’ll leave it up to yourselves, to find the most painless way :cry: ... to hit the high notes. :shock: :fsbgrin: :fswink:

When erging on the erg … Be it fast or be it slow … You might meet a special snowman⛄️ … Even if there is no snow … and that special Free Spirits’ Snowman has helped Jan Haveman to reach One Million Metres for the season.🍩

Jan - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕🍩

Thank you Jan, for the hundreds of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. :) =D> ^O^ 🍩

After checking back to the Mud Season Challenge, make sure that you keep up your vroom, vroom energy levels, by eating plenty of doughnuts and peanut butter.👍 8) 🍩🥜 :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Thanks Jill, what can I say ... that write up was worth every meter rowed :fsbgrin:

Also thanks for reminding me of what I've been doing wrong in the last few months: no doughnuts #-o :shock:
I had been wondering why it was getting harder to keep a decent pace for longer rows. Now I know what to do for this month's CTC :-D

Thank you Juergen - I am rather partial to big ( bear ) hugs. :)

I have said before how much I owe Free Spirits for helping me change my life around and as I am never going to be able to produce fast times for any of the competitions, then hopefully, this is my way of putting something back.

With hard work and I hope, fun … j b has reached One … Million Metres for the season.

j b - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕


And now we have Gregory Smith … who with … plenty of excellent erging, has also reached One Million Metres for the season.

A certain young lady appears to have landed on 1,000,000 for the seasons and as she is the shy, retiring type she's not going to be shouting her own name from the treetops - so from all of us who appreciate your efforts on this thread - THANK YOU..

Thank you Plummy and Sheena and Colin too. :)

I’m not sure as to whether “ shy, and retiring “ was said with tongue in cheek … but I am. Crippling shyness is a horrible thing and over time you have to learn how to deal with it. Forum Jill has played her part, although there are times when I think she needs reining in a little. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Pink flamingo? Obviously a hint. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Good luck and well done to everyone who has been able to take part in the January Challenges so far. Mucho metres for the Team Affiliation Standings. =D> 👍 8)

Erg sensibly. :)

I thought I saw young Peter Weiß ‘ akweeping ‘ up on me … I did … ‘ cos ‘ I am 42 and he is 43 ... after coming in off the water and racing up the Meterboard to reach One Million Metres for the season.

Peter - :D =D> 1,000,000 x 👕

Thank you Peter for all the generous and much valued metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. :D ^O^ =D> 👍 8)

Please try not to break the speed limit, as you overtake me on the way to your next million. :fsbgrin: :fswink:


I think it’s only fair … to say that Joi Bear … deserves a huge round of applause for becoming the first of our knockout young ladies to reach Five Million Metres for the season.

Joi - :D =D> x 5,000,000 👕👕👕👕👕💐💐💐💐💐

Much admiration for all your wonderful efforts and technically, you certainly reached your next million before I reached my first. :) 👍 8)

Thank you for all the many metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. ^O^ =D> 8)

Chris, apologies but my wayward computer refuses to print your correct surname - after several attempts, it still insists on calling you Tastevin-Hall. Therefore, I would like to think that you may have celebrated your achievement by having a glass or two of something vintage.🍾👍


Next up we have young Felton … whose efforts have see him ‘ belton’ ‘ … up the Meterboard at a fair old speed, in order to reach his first Million Metres for the Season.

Felton - :D ^O^ x 1,000,000 👕
