It would be great if a member of Rowpro Rowers could inform us of the March Challenge. There's just two days left in this shortest of months.

Regards, Joe

From Paul on facebook



Paul Flack I don't identify as a lady, but I did try to post my time - but couldn't. It appears that I have either forgotten my password or something else has changed.

I did the prescribed workout in 7:48.1 last night. 1:42.6 pace for the first 500m, 1:44.8 pace for the 1250 m. 1:43.4 for the last 500m.

Is there some place to click to recover or reset passwords? I couldn't find such a spot. I sent a PM to Darin, on the UK forums, since that was the only name that I could find on the Feb challenge. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Joe, I just e-mailed it off to website@C2forum.com and I'll post it below as well.
Thanks so much, Pam

MARCH 2018 – The RowPro Tactical Double

This challenge was chosen by The RowPro Rowers Team

Row for 15 minutes two times
With 3 minutes rest between each rep

Start each 15 minute row from a standing start.

Record the distance rowed for the slowest of your 15 minute rows.
So you can’t do one easy and one hard. You need best effort for both

Ok, I messed up. I signed up my wife for the CTC and she just rowed it. And I forgot the password I set up for her. What do I (or she) do?

Thank you!!

Since my crystal ball went offline in "The Great Crystal Ball Disaster of 1982", I'll need some more details like the username you've registered for your good lady.

Interestingly, there was quite a bit of collateral damage from GCBD '82. I lost my favorite divining rod that day. Anyhow, her CTC username is "ameliabrazilia" and she did pretty good for a non-rower! I may be a bit biased.

Thanks Citroen :)

If they don't tell us by 10:00GMT tomorrow then the "defaults to 2K" rule will come into effect. The March CTC will be a straight simple unrestricted 2K.

Dougie,

Did you see this? Paul Flack is one of the original Forum Flyers from way back. He should be in the database as either Canoeist or Paul Flack. It looks like he's ready to become more active and we'd like to have his scores count for us.

Thanks.

A very strong performance by the MAD team placed them on top of the leaderboard for February. Fitness Matters' second place resulted in a one point lead over Sub7 in the annual chart. Sub7 floated 22 boats; well done for getting 110 rowers on the virtual water.

Welcome to #TokyRow.

Two new teams, Cornish Gig Rowers and Olimpic Barcelona have the challenges for April and May. Normal service is resumed with MAD in June.

I hope the tables are free of error this month. Please note that three clubs are on 7 months participation because they have not produced boats regularly during the past period. Only active months count.

Regards,
Joe
