World Erg Team Challenge 2019

Post by Tako » Sat Mar 16, 2019 2:43 pm

Dear fellow FreeSpirits!

Please remember to sign up for the World Erg Team Challenge on the Teams tab of your C2 Log Book!

Your meters only count for the team if you sign up there, and from the new logo we added to the meterboard today we can see that far too many have not done so.

If you have not done it yet, please do it before the deadline as the team needs all your meters!

Make all meters count!
Rowing for fitness & health!
Without others and competition I wouldn't, so thanks to all of you in the community for keeping me going! :fssmile:

I‘m in!

The deadline to join this challenge is March 30th, 23:59 GMT. To do so you need to go to the „Teams“ tab in your C2 logbook, then sign up for the World Erg Challenge under „Current Challenge“.

You don‘t need to row any extra meters, just follow your usual traning/rowing routine, but after signing up every meter will count towards the team meters.

We are currently in 5th spot! :fswink:

Dear Mr Tako and dear Mr Peter,

I have signed up for the challenge but as I am not here at the moment, I will not be able to row any more metres until Monday.

I will need to row the metres because yesterday, I was very bad and ate far too much Wensleydale cheese ... and I’m going to be very bad again today, when I eat some more. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

I redeemed myself though by only drinking my favourite tipple, sparkling ‘ miserable ‘ water. :D

I will look forward to seeing you on the Metreboard.

Yours sincerely,

Jill xx

Dear Mrs Jill ;-)

To me that sounds like you are having a well deserved break after your 15 rows for the mud challenge in order to recharge for the remaining 10!

Enjoy!!

I'm in - not that that should shock anybody...but it's a good idea to highlight that a) the event exists and is taking place and b) that you don't need to row any more than your usual metres (although a few extra couldn't hurt ;-) ) and help the team towards the total.
