Even more curiously I was just about to post that same question.

If DLC Gidea Park don't shout out by Sunday it will be a straight simple unrestricted 2K.
On the 13th of June Joe Keating posted this on the CTC fb page;

''DLC Gidea Park have let me know that they will no longer be launching boats in the CTC and will not be making their challenge in July. I hope ESPRIT can take their place in nominating a challenge for next month. Please tell me if that causes problems. GARAGEATHLETE now have the August nomination''.
In that case; if Esprit don't tell me by 30th June, then their choice will be a straight, simple, unrestricted 2K.
An unrestricted 2k would be pretty sweet. I'd like to know where I'm at, but I definitely don't want to do one on my own.

I'll blame Zuckerberg for everything that's wrong (and that's not just with the CTC communications).

. . . and I thought faceplant and the dodgy old forum were connected by something called the internet. Silly me.

Most of the problem is that I'm in Germany this week.

I know, we're on day 178 of 2019 and I've had 50+ days out of the country so far. There's another trip to Perth, WA planned and tickets bought from 12th Dec to 6th Jan, including a BBQ on the beach. [My daughter lives in Eglinton just north of Perth.]

Next business trip is to Yorkshire on a rare domestic assignment.

I reckon around of just under 1k pace for the 500, hang on for the 400 (it's tough) then faster for the last three. Will be able to do a couple of times if you want to as it is relatively short.

Entered one of our rowers under the wrong name - the one for Katie Metalli Fitness Matters team needs to be deleted as she is rowing for #TeamTokyRow until July next year when we will all revert back - thanks

When I say "deleted" I just mean the June CTC entry. Otherwise all of her previous scores when she was competing for FM will also be deleted. thanks
