C2CTC Password issues - I have been unable to log my recent scores for the Feb 22 challenge. I have tried to use previously accepted passwords and also create a new account, both have been unsuccessful and was hoping it would be possible to have it reset so that my scores can be included for my team.
I need more details of what name(s) you've registered on the C2CTC website.

The name that needs to be rest is Craig Mumby. The alt names are what I have tried to create to submit a result but still haven’t worked - so can be removed if you’re able.

There was a twist in the gravity well round our solar system (I'll blame the Russians for that).

I'm new to this and interested in participating. I signed up yesterday on team independent, rowed according to the February challenge guidelines this morning, and it looks like it's moved on to Match. Did I miss the cut-off? If so, no big deal - I know I was skirting the wire.

Also, I apologize for what feels like a dumb question, but how does rowing as an independent work - do I get added to other teams who need an extra to float a boat? Or is it generally recommended that rowers choose a team?

Thanks!

Check again, Feb. challenge is back up. I believe independents constitute a team despite their reticence to do so.

I just checked again and found your entry as Elizabeth the Independent. It appears that we share a surname, same spelling. Are you Scots? If you would like to join a very old team, Forum Flyers would welcome you. It is a bit of a chore for Citroen if you switch teams but one he performs with unstinting dedication to the sport.

Jack, thanks for the welcome! We do share a surname. I'm an American, but my grandmother had some Scottish blood and then I married into the name.

I had misunderstood what registering as an independent meant, and would love to join the Forum Flyers. Citroen, can you help, or is this something that I can do on my own between months? Thank you!

Forum Flyers: who we are? what we do? This may help⬇️

Elizabeth, I love recruiting for FF but should confess that there are several very competitive teams in CTC which would love to have you as a member. Some are mainly active at Facebook; a few have team pages on this site. Take your time and find the team that can hold your interest and keep you motivated.

Hi guys,

Just a couple of questions on behalf of Whitby friendship arc

We were wondering if we were eligible to be on the challenge list yet, is Joe the man for this?

Also, just a daft one, our colours are currently dark green, which is no problem (our main rivals are blue and yellow anyway 😂)
but our club colours are red (have been since 1879 😊)

Would it be possible to change them to some version of red or would this create confusion?

Cheers

Hi Marc,

A new team has to have three consecutive months of scoring to be awarded a challenge. Whitby produced boats last August, October, November with January and February this year. Should you launch a scoring boat this month, you will be eligible for a challenge.

Team Diamonds, another new squad, has claimed the June challenge so the earliest opportunity for a Whitby Friendship CTC is July.

Regards,
Joe

The Mad team's run of success continued in February. They have now won all ten challenges so far this season. Congratulations!
The Diamonds are showing their own brand of consistency by turning out 32 boats for the third consecutive month.
Team Diamonds has applied for and been awarded the June challenge. A new team with three consecutive months of launching boats may apply for a challenge. It doesn't happen automatically.
Welcome to 'Age Against The Machine' who launched a boat for the first time last month.
Future Challengers:
April - Club Row Crew
May - SkiErg
June - Team Diamonds

Joe

Thanks for the info Joe!

We've floated a boat (and hopefully a few more to come) this month, so can Whitby Friendship Amateur Rowing Club apply for a challenge.

All the best
