I've got one about Lanyards. I was just reading over the AIDA rules on it.

I don't have one but I was looking at making one. Not sure how it will actually turn out. Any advice on this?

Thanks,
Morg

Yep... buy one. Far far easier, Sam will have some for sale.

They get heavily scrutinised at some comps and sometimes judges with big arms try and rip them apart.

In any case it's not just a lanyard to pull up a 70-90kg person, it's the 70-90kg plus all the water resistance plus it's going to get a hell of a jolt when the counterbalance catches up to the lanyard.

Cheers,
Ben

Hi Sam yeah my name is back up on the site now dont know what the hold up was but i am there in name anyway. Sam will i need the bfa card or is the fact that its on the web enough? I e-mailed martyn about it but not sure if the card will be out in time next week. He was away the past few weeks.I am heading for the ferry on Thursday night to catch it Friday morning.

Two questions Sam:

1) Will the floods affect the comp?

2) At the briefing can we all have access to a no-fins tag with the band around it so we know what to do with it once we grab it from the bottom?

Cheers,
Ben

At least you whinging Southerners have all stopped moaning about hose pipe bans ;-)

Global warming ..... bring it on. I've got all the electric on in the house, drive the long way to work and have stopped recycling.

Manchester is sunny!!! Yipppeeeeee

apparently this is Saturday's weather at Chepstow

anyone got any idea what this means???? other than - a bit of everything???

Bring the waterproofs.... :confused:
Yeah, it could be anything! We are still too far away to know, but a heatwave appears unlikely. And I won't be going up to Tewkesbury this weekend - at least I shouldn't have to explain to anyone ever again where Tewkesbury is!
