And now a side note...

The ospreys or seahawks are still in residence at some of the high country lake areas. These birds dive down into the lake, and snag a fish (rainbow trout and kokanee are stocked in Lake Granby for example). Before heading back to the nest, the osprey goes to what we have called the killing pole and beheads the fish. These killing poles are generally pretty close to the nest, and are just about the same height. I'd describe these as Discovery Channel looking poles with all the pieces and parts falling to the ground for crows and other scavengers to take.

It is not unusual for the ospreys that nest closest to our location to do a low fly by to check out dogs, people when we first arrive. And sometimes they do have a fish in talons...and sometimes there is a camera nearby!

It has been 6 months, but I finally was able to post my first meters for the season. Our Y closed down March 14, and just opened again last Wednesday. There are only 2 ergs there, and one is now taped up to maintain distance. I'm not a good waiter. I got in line with Concept 2 on July 27 to order one for my very own, but my order date is now Oct 5. Let me repeat, I'm not a good waiter. I work at a bicycle shop (Jack's Bicycles, Monroe MI), and we have had the same issues with the supply chain. Some of the bikes we usually stock will not be available until - wait for iiiiiiiiiit - late March 2021. Fortunately, I have a young dog to take me for walks (Jasper the Labradoodle), and an 11 year old grandson, Noah, to come over and do online school at our house (and pester and prod and poke at me all day), so I haven't exactly turned into a carrot. Nice to get back at it, but it's HARD (and slow) with a mask on.

Sounds terrible Rick. Glad you finally had a chance to get some meters going even if it’s not the ultimate goal. Hang in there.

Pushing the software boundaries again?! You might want to forward this to David at Concept2. He's the internet guy - works out of the UK. I'll also ask Citroen - he's usually in the know on these things, too.

Great workout!

All In A Day's ERG: Team Progress Thru 9.15.2020

Image Day 2 of 31 !!!

Thanks to our Fall Challenge Team for all the first day efforts! The Challenge team is often comprised of teammates who are erging with us for a specific Challenge, but are not necessarily part of the affiliation. I encourage everyone to take a look at the individual contributions that are being made - you can do that by clicking on the team name when you look at the current standings. Teammates often have a personal goal of being in the top ten percent of all participants in the Challenge - and with 5,062 participants in the Concept2 Fall Challenge Universe - you'll need to have greater than 19,300 m in the Challenge meter piggy bank to qualify. I believe we have several in that category. Whew and good work!

Here's the link to the current standings: https://log.concept2.com/challenges/ftc/2021/teams

Team standings are changing by the hour, within the hour as meters are posted and teammates sign up on the various teams! From the looks of mega meter offerings, there are going to be some increases in the grocery bills for the Lunies! Do take care as you ramp up the meter amounts - it's so easy to get caught up in the competition. Do what you can do, and trust that your teammates will be doing their best, too. Still, we also know that you can't fall behind too far as a team or you will be out of the team standing position that maybe you had your eye on! Truthfully, we want you to enjoy erging long after this Challenge is done...and burnout (vs afterburners) can happen... :shock:

What shows up in the memory on the PM5? It may be worth displaying that and grabbing a photo with your phone (as extra evidence to send to Concept2).

If you haven't already done so you should upgrade the firmware on your PM5 to V168 (or V30 for older models).

The PM5 memory is an accurate representation of the row, which was an 8:33.0 / 2214 meter piece. ErgData shows the 8:33.0 and the 2:08.2 sections. This looks like ErgData is being a bit of a dumpster fire.

Good reminder. I noticed I had to do that when I was looking at the challenge page. It's not completely obvious. Might need to throw out that reminder a couple more times.
