Last year we mislaid our Mirror oars, and I was wondering if anyone coming to Roadford had a pair (I guess approx 7' but wouldn't matter too much) we could borrow for the weekend, please, while we wait for a 2nd hand pair to appear, magically, from somewhere! Somehow I can't bring myself to spend the £40 - £50 new ones would cost, at least not just before holiday time!
Alternatively, if someone has a pair they would like to sell, please let me know!

Thank you Mark, it will help kiddie entertainment a lot (and everyone else's watching me row!) if the wind is light at Roadford.
Garry, that sounds like a good comp - row - mize (sorry) between length for rowing and storage in the boat - many thanks.

Many thanks, but I managed to get some from Garry at the Bowmoor event. However, if you happen upon any Enterprise sized ones, (longer, maybe 7 1/2 feet?) I'd be interested, please!

Knowing the way the French pronounce things, I think stotty was thinking something different. My only thought is that scouting has changed a bit...I notice they are keeping the young and good looking ones, though!
