I suspect Guidon will be the hw version of Guy?
Great to see Petr again.
I've added the points to Guy's score now.

Ha - yes, that is indeed the fat, slow version of me :oops: Thanks for spotting it !

Had an extremely patchy year so far in terms of training & motivation so little CTC activity from me and it's only going to get worse as I'm in for carpal tunnel surgery tomorrow. Hoping not to have to spend too long off the erg but it could well be 2021 before I'm up for anything brisk like a CTC.

I've updated the board again. Nothing changed in the top 10 except for the tenth place for Philip of course. Very well done ^O^ and Jon equaled Iain.
One new entry, welcome Lorraine and a re-entry for Spidermac.
Highest number of participants so far this year.

Good luck with the sprints, don't know when my entry is going to come, my elbow hurts a bit and I want to be careful with something like this.

I could have sworn I had posted a reply here yesterday.
Anyway, it's updated again, Peter entered the top 5, Jon and Clare can fight for position #7, Lesley is still one point behind CLaudius, but that will be hard I think. Don't think C will miss boat 1 this month.

Good luck everyone with the last CTC this year.

I've updated the board with December's results so last year's end score is ready now.
Congratulations Claudius, you missed April, but all the other ones you were in boat 1 ^O^ ^O^
Number one comes as no surprise, but unfortunately Lesley was not able to participate in December so she dropped out of the top 3. Still, deep respect, you missed two CTC's and still managed to end #4, great, Lesley, and I hope you recover soon.
I'm in a non-deserved second place now, one point ahead of Steve. I can imagine you would want a recount :fswink: .
Of course some of the team members who ended high in 2019 joined another team and some were not able to participate because the gyms were closed, so the numbers might be a bit distorted compared to 2019.

Five of us managed to participate in each CTC, great, six missed only one, predominantly the Valentine's challenge.

Good luck everyone this year, and the top will change I think, with some who joined FS during 2020 climbing to the top of the board, giving competition to Claudius and Lesley.
Have fun.

Thank you for taking care of this table Fred, it is a constant mean of motivation for me :fswink:

I finished fifth which is my highest ever, but, as you said, mostly because two very good rowers (Tako and Morten) have left the team.

Thanks for doing this Fred. It keeps me sharp, and I’m kicking myself for missing the Valentine event #-o

With Claudius ruling the roost of Lightweight rowers, I think things bode well for him this year too! =D> =D> ^O^ ^O^

No re-count needed Fred, you are in your rightful position!
Thanks for keeping this going.
We can keep some of the 'higher' seats warm for a while...

Congrats to Claudius for a super season, and also Lesley of course for some standout records.

Thanks Fred for all your continuing work. And to all the gentlemen with their king words.
I won't be able to row Jan or Feb either :(. Probably a slowish one in March depending on how long it takes to rebuild to anything close to normal.

A new year has started, I've added the January results to the board.
Thirty participants (I thought we had 6 boats afloat earlier but now there are only 5), three shiny new entries, welcome to Caroline, Gaby and Steve.
New names (compared to last year) in the higher ranks, I hope everyone is able to continue this year.

Enjoy the rowing, good luck with the February challenge, and very important (well, there are more important things of course) don't forget tot row 1402 meters on February 14th.

Thanks for continuing to do this this year Fred. =D> =D>

I'm going to try to remember Feb 14th this year for those 50 points!

Not sure where to put this but I think I recall someone posted a link they had put together that pulled in all the concept2 results not just the season ranked events. You could compare across all seasons at one time. Did I imagine this? Can it be reposted pretty please.

I'm hoping March for the CTC comeback.

Thanks, Lesley

I think this is the link you are after Lesley - https://www.rankedworkouts.com/

I hope you manage to get back on the erg in March. Fingers crossed.

Lesley, there is a thread on the C2 Forum, I think they are looking to build an alternative to the Nonathlon with handicapping for all. I think it is under "competitions".

Thanks Jon and Iain. The ranked workouts was the one I was thinking of. I'm highly motivated by numbers and setting targets. I will check out the c2 forum as well when I get a chance.

Nice number of participants yesterday, though I'm a bit sorry for those who were not able to row.
However, there's plenty of time left to get back, though I think James and Matthew, when they manage to participate every month, it will be difficult to catch up with them.

Eek. There was I thinking the 14/2 challenge was just a flat number of points for participating. I hadn’t realised there were a range of points available. I just paddled 1402 meters as a warm up . We live and learn.

Thanks for updating the scores so quickly

Sorry to hear that, Jon. I must say I was a bit amazed to see you didn't score that many points.

Don't worry Jon, you will soon be back past Plummy & I! In recent years we haven't had as good a mix and so have floated few boats and most people just got the 50 points! Must admit it felt strange sitting in boat 1 with you and Claudius in lower boats!

Twenty nine participants this month. Claudius to enter the top 3.
One complete new entry, Wojciech, unless he participated with another name before of course.

Have fun with the 6K.
