September '07

OK, the easy bits. The Slithey Tove Trophy on 16th September currently has 13 entrants, including one from the USA and one from Sweden. There are probably another 4 entrants waiting in the wings. If you're really mean, we might waive the late entry fee! The post race dinner is free and is intended to be a whoopee for all. You bring the bottle, we'll make the stew. Hope you like garlic!

Demonstration Afternoon

On 29th September we have been invited to give a Footy demonstration at Two Islands MYC in Milton Keynes. If we can get it right, there is a good chance of Two Islands becoming another Footy club. If you can, turn up -- even if you do not have a finished boat. Help us to communicate to Two Islands members and the general public the joys of Footy sailing and building. If you do have a working boat or boats, please contact me to coordinate frequencies. Otherwise just turn up! Two Islands MYC's very energetic secretary is Jim Marsh, Contact him at
