Not sure of this link will work / men's masters 200m grand final / we came 4th -
Drama early this morning moving new boats on the trailer when the bracket holding the front wheel broke and took out one of the marshals - an ambulance arrived and he was treated for a bleeding head, hip and squashed foot. Amazingly by the arvo he was back working again at the regatta centre!!
Just chillin' - we came 9th so just missed out on the mixed 500m grand final πŸ˜–

Arrived at car rental and thereafter followed 75 mins of to-ing and fro-ing and calling my bank twice to increase the limit on my debit card for the $1000 bond and the bank did that but the card still didn't work and I had a splitting headache and then I had the brain wave and used my British debit card which was accepted ! Arrived at the Princes Lodge more than an hour late - pfffff
My lodging for the next few days
Adelaide !
Arrived Sydney airport to a 20 minute delay and a splitting headache! Oh well - paddler spotting - they're everywhere ! Lol
