The Club lawnmower has now dried out after being used as a handy rack for wet kit! It has coughed and spluttered through another lawn mowing session. I fear that this is only a temporary remission and that it won't last out the season. Please look at the Wanted Classified and ask your friends.
The Bala trip may be my kayaks Waterloo; a sad day if it is. It appears that only a near religious experience with a mighty soldering iron can save my boat from its holey death... Operation is scheduled for tomorrow... Please think of my boat in it's time of need, Brian
Just thought I should say how great tonight was. For those of you who have been around the last few weeks you will have heard my little scream as I go down the seal launch and usually go over. Well tonight Brian convinced me to go down Princess Weir. It was truly amazing and I loved the thrill of it and I even remembered the low braces and stayed upright. Thanks all this is really helping me feel better and I am loving all the new experiences.

David Mackie and Brian Nicholson paddled the P2H event, along the canals from the Drawbridge pub (Shirley outskirts) to the center of Brum (Brindley place, Gas Street Basin, etc), taking in the surprisingly scenic delights of the Stratford and Birmingham canals. We finally meet up with around 30 other paddlers who had also paddled various canals to the center, had a quick natter, and then paddled to the car. We can well recommend this trip, as the canal is very green for most the way, and…Continue
