Fall Team Challenge

Post by yogi1313 » September 9th, 2020, 2:34 pm

Hi,
My name is Eric Gabriel and am looking for a team for the Fall Challenge. I am a bi-lateral, above knees amputee and can only row on the ERG. I have just completed the Dog Days of Summer Challenge with over 130, 000 meters. I have also competed at the CRASH-B's on 3 occasions in the adaptive division. Anyone need help?
My e-mail is gabriel.eric42@gmail.com
Have a Great day!

Hi Eric

Forum Flyers are always looking for new members, and we are a diverse bunch in all respects (geography, age, fitness, gender, etc.), although I suspect you'll be bringing something new to the team that we don't have :).

You're welcome to drop into our team thread on this forum and see if it's to your liking, and introduce yourself there if you're keen (and that's pretty much the entrance exam done!).

Dave

Good Morning Dave,
I'm not sure how to reach out to the rest of the team, so I am hoping I could go thru you for the time being. I would love to be part of the team if everyone agrees/accepts me. Besides rowing, I am a double leg amputee, ex-traveling softball player, and have a doctorate degree with my dissertation being on adaptive rowing.Yeah, you got a whole mixed bag of nuts here. It is easier if you look at this link and the go fund link attached which has videos.

Have a Great Day - Eric

Hi Eric

Certainly a varied life story there - nothing boring at all!

The easiest way to connect with the team is to post in the team thread. Introduce yourself, share updates on training / life, ask questions - pretty much anything goes. It's become a bit lively recently as all the new Fall Team Challenge entrants join up, but does quieten down at some point.

There's also a new members' guide that covers how to sign up with the team on the logbook, other challenges we do, and so on.

Dave
