Did we lose our top scoreer for the meterboard (whoever he was)? Plenty of green arrows on the meterboard?
Steven Dowd seems to be missing - still on the Team Challenge board though.

Ian, although we still have the benefit of Steven Dowd's January Challenge metres, he is now affiliated to the Air Force Rowing Team.

There's a military challenge on during February, so it may just be a temporary absence.

He he, well I guess this is due to the fact that I deleted a SkiErg test of 178m from my log today. Planning a row now that should fix it ;-)

Bit of a thread resurrection but I just noticed a certain Christine Wojcik appearing towards the bottom of the meterboard with a first row of the season of 7207m. That's an immensely welcome sight. Glad to see you back m'lady :-)

Yes Plummy, I also saw Christine’s entry and although we do not know one another, from reading some of her funny/witty/common sense and supportive posts, she was a very talented rower and asset ( like all our ladies ) to the club.

There are lots of reasons why people no longer row and most of them come under the heading ‘ Life’ .

Christine, it is always heartening to see people returning to Free Spirits and hopefully we will see more of your presence on the Meterboard.

Jill :)

I think I'm a tweeked muscle or missed session away from being caught by Guy - there's some monster daily distances 💪

I reckon you're safe enough Ian. With the kids being off & the like I've been able to put in a few unusually large weeks recently but I'll be back to something a bit more sustainable now. This is already my highest meters season (woo - go me !! ;)

Having quietly rowed passed Plummy, 3 days away and he seems to be trying the same quiet meterage addition. Only being approximately 17500 ahead at the moment I'm sure the 2 week break will give Plummy time to row past. I shall applaud =D> the effort as It will give me another challenge to meet when I get back :D
