Right Then,

Our crew is getting organised at last so here we go:-

There will be nine of us onboard 'B.A' for the weekend (That will be somewhat interesting)

BBQ - SueW, we hereby pledge £90 cash (Handed to you on the day)

Beer Tent - RobinW, we hereby pledge £135 cash (Handed to you on the day)

Raffle - Captain joshie / Jaguar, we hereby pledge £200 cash (Handed to you on the day)

Steve n Vicky, we can bring down a petrol generator with fuel cans, 110v transformer and lighting if you wish, we also have a good gazeebo we can bring as well  -  Let me know please

We are trying for a 1/2 doz or so Lap dancers but sadly seem to be failing with this one, any volunteers???

Tug-of-War

We are struggling to find a 'proper' tug of war rope (G.C's fault)  anyroadup this event WILL take place as we will manage using our two head ropes tied together if we have to.

The Teams - Ladies and Gentlemen there is a weight LIMIT (Which wll be very easy for the ladies to comply with) the teams are to consist of 8 x persons pulling totalling no more than a MAXIMUN limit of 120 stone per TEAM,  PLUS a caller who is of course unlimited.

Referee – We NEED a referee please, anyone fancy initiating?  You get to guess the weight of all competitors!! (Could be a bit dangerous with the Ladies that one)

The 'B.A' crew will donate a suitable trophy that will be competed for year on year. The trophy will be named -

'The Norfolk Broads Forum Tuggers Trophy'
(Crazydavefour - you got a estimate / invoice for me yet?)

This years winners will of course be 'Griffs Growlers'

During the day 'Broad Ambition' will of course be 'Open to Visitors' and seeing as the organisers are doing the saily trip around the Broad, then 'Broad Ambition' can match that and do a 'Stinky' trip around the same Broad but in far more style of course.

Think that is all for now, Looking forward to seeing and abusing the lot of you/us

Griff

Edited for upgrading max weight limit of teams

100 divided by 8 equals 12and a half stone.

i bet griffs growlers weigh more than that!

Mike - Yep you are right, got my sums wrong there,

Better make it 120 stone = 15 stone average, we have to be carefull here as the lighter teams and of course the ladies will be disadvantaged. In fact I reckon the Ladies team ought to be allowed an extra tugger!!

How about.. instead of putting a weight limit on tugging competitors, make sure that each can get their entire body through a life-ring.
