yes we'll be there, 2 for hog roast and camping please, I think John and Lyn also.

By the way we have 8 of the flags left, 1 cap, 1 child's T shirt in blue with cvrda logo on front and back, we'll bring and see if we can shift .
Also three of the trophies (copper nails on wood with CVRDA 2005 plaque) you can use.

Looking forward to seeing the new lake,
Chris and Lois

Would have come but Sizzle will need hull repair before setting sail again after Roadford. Should be fixed in time for the winter get together. Decay in bottom of hull worst than thought.

I'l keep you posted.

Roadford excellent again - fantastic. Well done everyone for all you hard work.

Peggies look set to increase in numbers again- Is Bob now looking for one.

178 now found new home in Shropshire.

Can we get 8 - 10 to Raodford for next year - Class start. Neil time to get P18 ready for next year!!!

<font color="red">For those travelling near Oxford next w/e</font id="red"> - try & avoid it as Blenheim are hosting European 3 day eventing ch/ships Fr-Sun - expecting 50,000 visitors so roads around Woodstock & North Oxford (A44, A34) will be very busy espec early am & late pm

Suggest you try & avoid if possible - might not be too bad around lunchtime though

Hi David,
Regret Angie and I cant come this year. I promised to9 help with an Iron man competition at Shearwater and didnt realise it clashed until too late. Why anyone would voluntarily swim 2 miles in Shearwater i cant imagine but their about 1000 competitors. I am very sorry to miss Bowmoor this year as I enjoyed it so much last year and its the only time Ive beaten the Rollinsons on the water and on handicap. Any news on a winter event ?

Winter event being firmed up, I hope, as I write. Your fixture's sec isn't sure what happened to the time between May and now...
I confess I enjoyed beating the Rollinsons with you last year!
Saskia is now packed onto trailer. I think we have a sitter for Sunday, but Saturday we will have to play by ear, and maybe do a race each s/h if not too windy. I'm afraid I think we will be giving the evening "do" a miss, I'm afraid, for similar child related reasons, unless the plans change, of course!

Hope to be there, with Finn. Have also been trying to talk Peter Cook into coming (old mate of yours, Rupert, I think) He has an old Firefly and wants some competition prior to changing it for a new one to have a real crack at the '06 nationals. Think it's their 60th anniversary, or something.

See you then.
