BUSA by Give us some competition!-jo - Sat 7th May 2005, 11:27am
Hi everyone, was at BUSA last week competing in Novice (ARA novice) events and it struck me that your girls were way better than most of the crews we came up against, especially in the iv+ event. I was suprised that only a few crews from cambridge bothered entering (magdalene and CUW) especially since Durham entered a huuuuge amount of boats. How come so few college crews enter? Discuss.

Where have all the photos gone? by Amelia - Wed 27th Apr 2005, 9:25pm
Lots of photos of happy smiling post-victory people have been taken this year. Not all of them have made it onto the message boards. Those of us without digital cameras of our own, and who have yet to pay Honey for JET prints, are starved of visual evidence of FaT dominance.

So all of you people out there with relevant boatie photos taking up space on your data sticks, please post them!!
Blades again by no voice - Sat 23rd Apr 2005, 7:18pm

Becca Downing      4.11.47


For Comparison ...
Sir Steve Redgrave 4.21.36

Club money by just out of interest - Tue 12th Apr 2005, 11:23pm
Is it the whole comittee who decide what the moeny for the year's going to be spent on, or the overall captain/both captains?
Only because it occurs to me we are quite in need of some new boathouse equipment, ergs [of which 3 of which have some kind of fault/weirdness, four of which are pretty unusable] & sliders? And how about another [even secdon hand] scull [maybe one designed for slightly lighter people :)?] or just magpie being fixed. Oh, and some clams. They're approximately £2 each.. :)
And, further to a conversation I was having the other day, what about some women's croker blades? Also, wouldn't it be worth saving our money and investing in new men's/women's 8s [especially with the demise of bp3] rather than novice shells?
Hope this doesn't start too much of a fight, it is largely out of curiosity, just wondering what the thinking is behind our latest boat buying spree? (28 replies...)
Novice Fairbairns Videos by Bryn - Thu 31st Mar 2005, 12:51pm
I know it's taken a while, but I've finally found out how to get some srcf user space and how to use it. Way back at the time of Novice Fairbairns I took some videos of all the crews and I've now added links to them on the results page. I hope all these links work!

If you want to see what your rowing was like a term ago you can have a look. I have to say that the videos aren't very good and that my newfound computer expertise (yes, that's right) doesn't extend to knowing a way of compressing them, so they're all around 10MB.

And just so that I can get extra practice with links, they're all here as well:

1st novice men's VIII
2nd novice men's VIII
3rd novice men's VIII
4th novice men's VIII

1st novice women's VIII
2nd novice women's VIII
3rd novice women's VIII

It's probably not worth it unless you have a fast connection (which I don't, so I haven't checked if any of this works...). (5 replies...)
Boat Race times by Bryn - Mon 28th Mar 2005, 1:47pm
In the build-up to the race on ITV they said that the Boat Race was timed to take place when the stream was at its quickest. But the BBC website says that Goldie beat OUBC by 3s.

So at least one of these has messed up:
(i) ITV (for not knowing about tides)
(ii) the BBC (for not being able to time a boat race)
(iii) Robin Williams (for not being able to pick the fastest crew)
(iv) me (for missing something obvious)

Can someone in the know help me out? (2 replies...)
3rd Annual Pre-Boat Race Pub Crawl by mjb - Sat 26th Mar 2005, 10:31am
Sunday service on the trains, meant I arrived at Putney half an hour late, only to find out that the Duke's Head didn't open until 12 anyway.
The intrepid group of pub crawlers (Ingers, Graham, Bron, Sarah, me) contented themselves with watching some random boats do practice starts off stakeboats on the river next to us until the pub finally decided to open.
Lunch was taken at the Crabtree where Mr. Walker arrived for his habitual late start, followed by Anna and Tom.
A push along the Hammersmith bend saw us acquire various extra hangers-on, including Amelia, Catherine, Becca, Henners and Guy and we made it to Cygnet BC for the Blackburn Bonus Pint around 1730 before completing the course a little after 8pm. Back to Blackburn's for pizzas where Graham, perhaps realising he'd finished the pub crawl, promptly fell asleep.
Hopefully a fun time was had by all.
The justice by Long overdue - Mon 14th Mar 2005, 2:56pm
Is there going to be a Justice meeting this term? Or has there been one that has just passed me by in my post BCD haze? (14 replies...)
FaT Men for Headship by shocked by Caius - Thu 10th Mar 2005, 7:07pm
My Goodness! To help Lilie make up numbers (and finally resurrect my profile on the social scene) I went to formal with the Caius 1st Men last night. Most of them were decent folk, but their captain was pretty much the epitomy of arrogance and the recurring presentation of Headship medals unnecessary. (I apologise for failing the Mission Abduct Dave's Pride by the way.)

I suggest to whomever this may concern post Henley, to incorporate in the 1st Men's Lent training a formal swap with their Caius counterparts. There is so much to be said for a race rowed on pure hatred!
