Notice dated 13th November 2002:
Request for help after cancellation of Thames region training day:

"My single is already at Dorney, but I was wondering if you knew of any Tideway-based clubs who are coming up whom I could contact about the return journey as, at the moment, I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to get my boat and blades back to London!"

Many thanks,
Zoe Gullen
