Re: Creating a new club - request for guidance

Re: Full leg cast

At 2016 WIRC, a young lady competed while sliding the sock foot of her extended leg on a large cookie sheet. Same idea as the Union Jack pillow above.

Re: PM update

You should put your money where your mouth is, Bob E. Aussie sliding head 1895USD out the door from Seattle WA today. Please don’t hesitate. Bargain for the “advances” in mechanical design over the poor old C2 static. You have no genuine interest in anything much except your grudge match with C2. I ...

Re: It took 7 years, but I finally did it

Stout fellow? I should hit 15MM meters this season (my fifth). Currently approaching 14. I hope to hold together long enuf to reach 20. I do like the enamel pins.

Be sure to start (or continue to) log your meters to your C2 logbook tomorrow 15 Sept. All meters rowed during the challenge p...

Re: PM update

Couldn’t build the better mousetrap by the only metric that counts—units sold. Hence the axe-grinding. Grace in defeat is hard for most us and impossible for some. :x

Re: Fair price for a used Model D?

Offer $700. A split the diff counter offer wouldn’t be out of the question for 10hrs. on the clock and available locally which I hope doesn’t mean a drive across Texas to play at Lookee Lou! If you’re made of money as is Ant, buy new with warranty. Completed sales history on ebay is the place to tak...

Re: PM update

Creating, nurturing and servicing a niche fitness machine market for 40+ yrs. is a monopolistic activity? Used to be called minding the store!

Re: Forum Flyers

Might need to treat the FTC signup as typical for the three perennial team challenges but otherwise it’s good to go imo. Thoughts or suggestions from others of the ad hoc recruiting committee?

Re: Forum Flyers

Is there a way we can make Dave’s summary of our team activities—including where to find and how to sign up—a sticky inside our forum page? Or, If this isn’t possible, could we add it to Capt. Henry’s intro to the team on our logbk affiliation page? Certainly a well-organized omnibus answer to a num...

Re: Recommended cushions for C2 Model D seat?

Agree, “Pillow” seats are an abomination—on the rower as on a racing or touring bike. Best advice from OTW experience with relieved areas on the centers of the ischeal tuberosities. Sliding butt muscle over those little bony bits 500-1000 times per row is painful. I like Mark’s idea of picking up ce...
