A dull place

The place to chill out & chat about anything on or even off topic. BTW, mine's a pint of Cotswold Spring's Old Sodbury Mild, please.

A dull place

Post by MartinF » Tue Mar 27, 2012 18:07

My, my. What a dull place this has become. I know there's been no wind for what seems like several decades now, but there must be other stuff to talk about? Anyone bought any new /old/used/unused/dodgy kit? Seen anyone interesting? Been anywhere potentially interesting? Seen the Weston windy machine working recently?
It's an ill wind that never blows at all.

Hi there, just coming out of hibernation! One thing though - isn't there usually an AGM about this time of year? - not seen any emails about it!
Looking forward to getting on the water before too long, and catching up with everyone!

That *might* be because you haven't advised your change of email address since you no longer have a bristolnomads email?? :shock:

AGM is tomorrow (Thur) starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Kings Arms, Easton-in-Gordano, BS20 0PS.

Now, isn't that fairly close to where you *used* to live ;)

It's more of a beer and skittles social though - the AGM bit won't take many mins :D

Nope - I was wrong - your new email address is set correctly in the mailing list so you should have received notification.

As another member with a btinternet email address also didn't receive notification, it may be something to do with them??

I haven't sailed since Dahab in January and have begun to get itchy feet.

Sold my 75 Quad fin (probably a great board, but not really my thing) and bought an RRD FSW 96 for those lighter wind days in the channel.

Beginning to plan the crossing to Wales, but having trouble finding an appropriate rescue boat. We'll launch next to the lifeboat station, so perhaps we don't need one;)

Looks like the wind's in the wrong direction for the next five days at least. We are expecting a heady 6 mph NW tomorrow. Oh joy.

Apart from that, been mountain-biking, and get my car back tomorrow.

Cheers,

James.

Oddly enough, I seem not to be terribly short of things to do.;)

Hopefully I should get my MTB forks back tomorrow from their service, having just got my car back from its most recent bout of destroying fuel injectors.
