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!
Plea for Pretty Photos by Rich/Dan - Thu 10th Mar 2005, 2:16pm
I'm looking for a photo or two of Cambridge rowing to put into a document that I'm writing. The criteria are:
- Must be taken by a club member (i.e. not Jet, so we can use it without copyright issues)
- Preferably showing people rowing well
- Preferably showing lots of crowds on the bank
- Preferably in summer

Can anybody help?

Separately, if anybody can find a photo thats shows off a company sponsoring one of the boat clubs (e.g. their name very obvious on a splashtop) then that would be fab too. (7 replies...)
Calling mathmo students by Dan - Wed 9th Mar 2005, 4:08pm
Erm, I used to be a mathmo student but sadly am no longer either a student, or any good at maths.
Can any of you give me an equation to link watts with 500m split on an erg (I guess put the split in seconds makes it easier). The concept site has data but no formula...

w horr vs bumps by jo - Tue 1st Mar 2005, 4:57pm

Anyone good with Photoshop? by Dan/Rich - Mon 28th Feb 2005, 2:17pm
We're looking for someone who can spare an hour or so and has access to paint/photo software to doctor a picture for us. I don't think this will take too long but neither of us have anything on our computers that will do this (and can't install new stuff at work). If you can help please drop me an email and I'll explain more...
Thanks (5 replies...)
BOP REQUESTS by KSS - Mon 28th Feb 2005, 1:50pm
Anyone got any NEW beats they want to feature in the JPD Lent Bop mix? Rupert will be there so the more we get, the less likely S-Club Juniors will be to appear.

As ever JPD and I will read your requests with interest and then totally disregard them in favour of our own tastes. (4 replies...)
Multicultural crews by Just wondering... - Fri 25th Feb 2005, 10:18am
I'm one of two home students in the 2nd Lent VIII, leaving seven overseas students and a total of six countries represented in the boat (or seven if you count Wales...). Has FaT ever produced such a mutlicultural boat before? (8 replies...)

Bit of a test by Martin - Tue 8th Feb 2005, 3:33pm
Apologies for random posting - just trying out browsing & posting from my new phone. Seems we could be expanding the bumps coverage this year!

Incidentally, my new phone number is 07813 711665 and should be working... (1 replies...)
Women's 'VIIIs' by Bryn - Mon 7th Feb 2005, 3:34pm
Am I the only one surprised by the number of people in all but the 1st women's VIIIs?

Crossing over by Lilie - Sun 5th Dec 2004, 10:38pm
After nearly being crashed into by a city VIII at the cross over point [well ok it wasn't that close but it could have been!] Can I just ask - why? Why, at an arbitrary point in the river do we have switch sides? Seems a bit odd.. and dangerous, to me. (2 replies...)

T-Shirts by Becca - Sun 31st Oct 2004, 1:09pm
This is primarily for the benefit of Tom and John, and relates to a conversation about t-shirt slogans that we had several yrs ago...:
I'm currently rowing with a girl from Oriel. They did come up with the t-shirt slogan: 'L'Oriel, because we're worth it'
ARA library by Simon - Fri 27th Aug 2004, 12:31am
The ARA has copies of old British Rowing Almanacks available for people to look at in Hammersmith. Some of the older ones (e.g. early 1900s) have detailed descriptions of races at Henley and on the Cam involving Trinity boats. If anyone in the club is keen enough to come and look through these and get information (e.g. for this website) then let me know and I shall try to arrange something.
strokesider (female) for S4 eight by Sarah - Mon 9th Aug 2004, 10:26am

I'm currently coaching and coxing the Mortlake intermediate squad. We are going to Stourport Regatta this weekend, but one of the girls is ill so won't be able to come.
the main problem is the eight - on saturday we have a straight final (non-qualifying) at 3.50pm
so is there ANYBODY out there that knows a female with less than 4 points who could help us out?
we could probably manage if you are a bowsider as we have someone who can swap.
Stourport is just south of Birmingham, we could probably pick up someone anywhere en route from SW london

please email me asap if you can help? (3 replies...)
2nd VIII clip by ipe - Wed 30th Jun 2004, 3:24pm
I've put up a video clip of the 2nd Men's VIII doing a practice start, taken by Chris Stone during the May bumps.

It's a 7.3mb mpg file, here (1 replies...)

The Stomp by Anna - Tue 15th Jun 2004, 12:59pm
The Stomp, come to it. Please. I know it means getting up early but you can go back to bed and it's really poor that we're outnumbered by a bunch of tree hugging muppets when there's so many of us.

Tomorrow and Saturday are our chances to make it up so get your arses out of bed and get stomping.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen and GOOD LUCK to all our crews today. (19 replies...)
