    Cool York canoe race 23rd June

    It would be nice to see as many Sotpers there as possible! .......So me and Kaptain Slow (cankay) can beat ya!
    But don't tell Stinkwheel......or Stu.......or Big Al......or Roger......they beat is last year.

    In fact the race will be taking place on the 30th June (not really) .......the fix is in Jon we might win

    If you start the race on the 23rd, then there's a chance that you might not come last.

    Sorry Bren, but my flight is already booked. Roger and I will be there. So that's at least one canoe in front of you again this year.

    Beware, Al’s on a training regime with a base in Sw France in the run up to it. It’ll be like Rocky but with canoes. Honest

    Ah, but will Al's altitude training on the Tarn (all 400m of it, at river level) out trump your distance training on the Tiber, Bren? Time will tell.

    More importantly, its going to be difficult to beat MarkL's supervised Ballast Appreciation Training when it comes to the apres-paddle event.

    I can't come this year, I'm on call that weekend. Mrs stinkwheel might be persuaded to pop over though.

    I was on the Ouse at the weekend though. We wanted to do some shopping and I'm too tight to pay for parking so I parked at Poppleton, paddled in and moored up at the mouth of the Foss.

    Aw man, that's too bad. I was hoping to give you a better run for your money this year. You were the only SotP team worth trying to beat.
