  • Gathering Gazebo Appeal

    If you were at Salhouse this year, you will remember that we were lucky with the weather, which was a relief for those of us sorting tentage.

    Now we are trying to make sure future meets stay snug and dry even if it rains, and although we have a good tent, we admit it's a bit too small for our numbers.

    So we decided to launch an appeal for 'Gathering Gazebos'. We'd like to raise enough fund two pop-up gazebos, with sides, at about £100 each. Anyone who would like to contribute is asked to kindly donate through our Gathering Gazebos button.

    If we manage to raise more than this amount, funds will go to purchasing a £96 Tug O' War rope, which Griff plans to use to good effect at future gatherings...you have been warned

    Mud Wherry Cast Off

    The BA work boat moored at somerleyton over the last 3 months was never chained up , the river flows quite fast there too , that said they should be chained I even carry and use a chain for my boat if there's any history of this stuff in a certain area it is most defiantly on and that's every time in Norwich for sure having been untied 3 times there , as for insurance that's difficult now , BA say it was let loose that kinda get them off the hook though had it been chained someone would have had to have a set of bolt croppers to do the job n that's not going to happen really , who knows exactly what happened n even BA don't know that though they are quick enough to say its someone else that caused it to float off , had it not bit others they might not have done , but since there is damage to other vessels then they ate a bit too quick IMHO to blame someone else , vessels of that size and weight in that location and many others where the flow rate is high need securing properly and had my vessel been damaged then that's exactly what I'd expect BA to prove .

    Travelling Up, And Then More.

    We wake early, haveing all slept like logs. I was enjoying a lye i, but had to get up to turn the heating off. God knows why it started, none of us switched it on. We really enjoyed our evening at the Beccles lido moorings, so peacefull, and with amazing sunsets, which we were lucky to witness, and the beautiful cloudless morning wad equally as good. We went into the village centre for some needed medication, and for breakfast. We filled with water and got underway, but had no issue with the bridge at this state of the tide. We have plenty of time, as our intended destination is WRC, which is a short cruise, so keep to about 4 mph all the way along the waveney, and decide to take a turn around Oulton Broad to ware away the time. By now the wind is gusting, and we really feel it in Oulto Dyke and Broad, but eventually make our way bake to WRC. Good job too, as we hadn't been there long, and a number of boats also arrived, one of them being Ranworth Breeze, with owner Jim on the helm, and struggling with such a high topped boat in strong winds. We help him to moor, and get to know our neihhbour, what a really decent guy. We're eating in the restaurant tonight, especially after Jims recommendation, but for now, i'l leave you and get changed for dinner.

    Me too! The first few words of Granny chairperson's comment intriegues me though, Sacked Chair, what does the militant pike know that we don't? Has Granny been a naughty old girl? Is she paying the price for the Peer Review? Almost as gripping as 'who shot JR'? Sacked Chair Granny Burgess expressed her excitement at the prospect of spending nearly a million pounds for no reason. “We have no idea how many visitors we might get, or how much money they might spend, or really what the benefit is at all. But we still believe it represents strong value for money” she said.

    BSS doesn't really care if the boat is sinking, as long as it don't explode.

    On that note , im not so sure they enjoy getting caught at anytime, and would probably prefer we just left them alone all year The pike I have caught in the summer months have been landed and released promptly without any obvious ill effects.

    England V Tunisia

    Then it will be a penalty shoot out, though I think a better way to resolve draws in football matches would be to line all the players up in a row and make them run from one end of the pitch to another. Meanwhile the opposing team throw wet sponges at them. The team with the most players that reach the end of the pitch without falling over and acting like they've been shot with an elephant gun wins.

    Opening Day Reports

    Yeh I've found at least 3 biting critters around. Mozzies are the worst for me as I have some sort of reaction when I get done, they end up like boiled eggs. There's also some blackish delta winged jobbers about 5mm that give a good account of themselves and there’s the minute buggers that are all over the place at the moment, certainly in Cheshire and Norfolk that give a little nick that hours or a day later start itching like billyOh! I’ve been mullered recently but I must say the Cheshire mozzies are the SAS of the fly world and the size of Crane flies

    I had that, but once I cleared my cache it was all good. I note that the forum has recently switched to using https (which is much more secure), so that may be confusing some browsers? A cache clear fixes it though.

    Whoo hoo! £170 with a further donation in the system;and a lovely gazebo from Paul! We are therefore up to the second gazebo needed, and tug-o-war rope is the next on the list. Thanks so much for donations so far. Another £60 will sort it by my reckoning.
