I am not sure if *you* can - but I have made you a moderator, so if you click "edit" on the original post you may be able to see the option now.

As moderator, you have awesome power of course.

Enjoy your holiday.

Fellow FS'ers...

Please welcome Chloe, my 8 year old daughter who I'm sure would rather live with the Taylors than me!

I hope no one minds my daughter joining our ranks, she does so with the best intentions and after completing her first 1k in 7.34 is making her old dad fairly concerned that she might just break my pb soon!

Neil.

Welcome Chloe! My daughter Elizabeth (5) was deemed to young by her father (but possibly it was because she was too much of a threat!)

Thanks Thomas and Stan.

I didn't think about the ranking. Went back it appears she 12 out of 22 :D

She wouldn't have been allowed to join WISE so another reason why FS are great!

Oops

Post by PSims » Sun Jul 09, 2006 9:10 pm

Oops :oops: my mistake - sorry.

There were 2 other joiners who had said they would add their daughter!
I guessed wrong! Losing track with all the emails.

Welcome Chloe anyway!!

I'll change the previous post.

Looks like I'm upsetting the police again?!

I think we're in trouble Gooner - once she gets the technique sorted she'll be flying.

There is the metre board for a list of names or the memberlist button above for all the registered users of the forum. What sort of details do you need? I think it might be a bit dodgy/hard work to keep track of email addresses etc. Better if people put it in their profile on this site maybe?

Privacy

Post by PSims » Mon Jul 10, 2006 11:56 am

I have most of the emails, but we should not publish these without people's permission.

The Metres board is the best way to track what's going on.
You can email an individual member by the C2 Send Ranking Email facility.

We started by emailing each other, buy as we grew it became a deluge - hence this forum instead!

Welcome Sam.

Question: does the 100th member get a free month off rowing?

If yes, can I leave and rejoin?

Edmond - I can see your last name getting misspelled to Metres....but perhaps that's a good thing on this team!!!

Good to see Luxembourg represented in addition to other countries.

100 challenge

Post by webberg » Tue Jul 11, 2006 4:02 pm

Paul

How about the accumulated metres of the 100th member divided by 100?

Therefore a 500k joiner gives us all a 5k challenge.

This is not (underlined in bold) an excuse to find another Nigel!

Or each member's accumulated meterage when the 100th perosn joins, divided by 100. Time then adjusted to a common say 5k? Therefore for a 250k it is a 2.5k piece with the time result x 2.

For a 600k it is 6k with time result x 5/6

Not done the factors but this might be quite close?
