I've fixed it so that "George Bingham (RLR LWT)" has the same password (which I don't know) as "GeorgeBinghamRLR".

I can't untangle your other three old IDs without risking breaking the database.

Perfect, Dougie. Many thanks. I haven't used the 3 old IDs for a long time now, but I totally get why they can't be deleted. But you can delete the F George Bngham (RLR LWT) one. I only set it up last week, and I can guarantee that I haven't posted anything with it :D

Hey all - I'm looking for a team to stay competitive in all of these lockdowns. I've been at this for ~3 weeks (when I bought my erg), so I'm hoping I'll be able to ask for some advice along the way.

FWIW I'm 32 6'1' (184cm) and 225 lbs (100Kilos) and I average about ~24k/day (470km total). I'm happy to share times (log is in my signature), if that makes sense here. Some are decent and some are terrible, but I don't want this post to come across like some goofy crossfitter* looking for a pat on the back** for his average performances. I saw a post mentioning the "most common types C2 forum posters" here and I'm trying to avoid the common pitfalls.

My overall goal was to lose weight, but I love competing and playing games so I'd love to facilitate weight-loss with a new sport. Any takers? Also if this isn't the right place to ask I can make a general post, but I'm trying to follow directions.

Tommy Gee has been in touch to confirm the December challenge.

The Gee crew want to show that rowing is an activity for all ages. They have added up the years over seventy of their members and are asking us to row that as a distance in metres.

The challenge is 813 metres from a standing start with no other restrictions.

Regards,
Joe

Hi Citroen, Daren,

Please could I add a new team to the CTC? It seems I cannot send direct messages as I am new on this forum.

Many thanks,

Val

Congratulations to Garage Athlete for winning a very close battle in last month's challenge. For the third consecutive month, Fitness Matters, with twelve boats launched, had the greatest participation.
Mercian Nordic Walkers have the January challenge, Germania the February and Team Oarsome the March.
Firm Fitness and Te Waka Aoteoroa have qualified, as new teams, for a challenge but need to contact me on the fb page or the forum for this to happen.
