Bosun Battles on...
As many of us know Dan Earthquake has been in training for the Battle of Arms (as he has beaten every single one of us who tried to beat him!). Have a good look at the poster and see if you can see him. Dans performance wasn't too shabby at all taking out a couple of opponents before being ultimately beaten by the medalists for each arm. I guess that means we will need to help him train ready for next year now!. And what has Dan done to celebrate - what Dan often does during the summer - he gets up at 2.30 in the morning and drives a support boat for English channel swimmers. What a guy - makes me tired just thinking about it!
I must make a correction that I haven't won them all at the club: Stu Caley beat me on the right decisively at the fitting out dinner & Guy Mason is my toughest opponent - regular exhaustive draws. Thanks to all of you who have lent me your arms for resistance: John Ling, Leighton Hargreaves, Steve Ward, Jeremy & Imogen Higson, Kerry & Rowena Webb, Mark Rolfe, Simon Hardiman, Richard Voaden, Stu Caley, Derek Campbell, Colin Stait, Alvaro Vallejis, Jeremy Shinton, Robin Pitt, Giles Kusack, Guy Mason, Chris Bownes, Ollie Ridgeway, Usman Muhammed, Ben Freeman, Paul Birch & Ian Clarke. Every second of resistance helps!
