REGISTER NOW FOR THE PEOPLE’S ASSOCIATION RACE | BRUSH UP ON YOUR VARNISHING SKILLS |
1) REGISTER NOW FOR THE PEOPLE’S ASSOCIATION RACE
The PA Race will be held on the weekend of 27th and 28th April 2013. The final details for this race are still not
confirmed and we’re not sure whether we’ll be racing on Saturday, Sunday or both days yet! But as it’s coming up we need to know who is available to race ASAP so that when the details are finalised we can get our registration in quickly! Please register online by Friday, 5th April (indicating any day you are not available in the message box).
Please note that as with all registrations you need to register YES/NO for your participation (so even if you are not taking part this year please take a moment to register a “NO” so that we know!).
2) BRUSH UP ON YOUR VARNISHING SKILLS
The gunwales and seats on the boats are looking a bit ruddy from exposure to the sun and water so Gill has decided that a re-varnish is called for.
We’ll have a varnishing session immediately after training at 10.30am on Sunday 14th April.
If you’re bristling with indignation about the poor state of the woodwork then grab a brush and lend a hand!
If you don’t feel confident enough with your painting skills then we can find you less exacting tasks with masking tape, sandpaper and opening tins to be getting on with with. And if you really don’t feel like getting dust or paint on yourself or working up a sweat at all then we also have one or two “Supervisory” roles on offer – this basically involves standing in the shade and pointing from time to time as you offer key motivational phrases such as “Look, you’ve missed a bit…” or “Careful, it’s dripping…” (and the only can you’ll be need for this role is a chilled can of beer in your hand as you, er, watch paint dry!).
If you’d like to volunteer for this “Varnish Squad” then please drop me an email to:
… and I will add your name to Gill’s list.
See you at training,
All the best,
Philip N. Morgan – Team Secretary
British Dragons – Singapore
