will be on Saturday 10 January... keep it clear!

usual procedure:

Dive (compulsory, brief and in fancy dress)
Dinner (at the Boat)
Debauchery (with presents)


Details on the Facebook Group
Sign up here or there or both if you'd like to come. Yes you can bring partners. No you can't bring offspring (it's just not appropriate and I only point it out cos someone asked last year).

Good looking, non smelly, friendly canines like that grey one with the silly name might be acceptable

Hey Sam,

Count me in. I am off to Oz for 3 months on saturday but back at the end of Dec, so will come down and attempt to put a toe in the water after the lovely warmth of Sydney.

Have a fun few months, see you in the new year.

Tim

we have an extra little activity planned for the Christmas party weekend

On Saturday our dive may very well involve taking part in a Guinness World Record for Extreme Ironing - more soon

Saturday night could well be another WR in eating and drinking

On Sunday, we'd like to invite you to our very own Saltfree Demolition Derby. We're looking for volunteers to work off their hangovers on Sunday morning by helping us destroy the pontoon (sorry, that should read, carefully remove the wooden decking from the pontoon so we can rebuild it).

If you have a crowbar, hammer or other weapon of mass destruction that may well come in handy

Anyone? Anyone? ........

would you like me to send you a bit of the salt free pontoon so you can join in the fun ....benny ? you could nail it to something solid ..then prise it off and smash it up ......... might be considered as some kind of coping therapy for your natural longing to be back in the land of the green stuff.

If you'd like to take part in the Extreme Ironing World Record - which we're doing instead of a proper freedive for the Christmas Do day (as the pontoon will be out of action) - please tell me as I need to give them a list of names. You'll need an old iron, shirt, ironing board and £20 for the RNLI

See the facebook group for it here: Welcome to Facebook! | Facebook

Are first timers allowed? I'm a virgin to saltfree but eager to meet all you guys and this would be a perfect chance for me to get involved.

Eager and awaiting my virginity to be broken (and spend lots of cash on courses next year!!)

Thanks
Chris..

Living the dream
Now I am rather confused are we Extreme Ironing at the bottom of the lake instead of the fancy dress freedive or are we doing the Extreme Ironing in fancy dress.

I suppose my main question is should we all try to be sharks this year and have another competition to see how long our cardboard fins last?

Or should we all have to wear something different to last year? (I'll have to since I lost my feathers).

Missing that cool green lake (although the water is feeling rather nippy here right now and I have moved into a full suit again) and all of you guys.

LOL

It seems like we need an invitation email to join the NING group.
In the mean time I dont have any tools but I have 2 good arms so I suppose I can carry the bits and pieces you guys will destroy...
Cheers,
Kat
PS I am likely to need a lift from and to London
kat. Where in london? I could drive no problem.
