Justin has very kindly offered to carry forward our entries from the B2C (that we couldn't fish) to the Goldrush in early October.

Nick, Yellow One in TO, will be at uni in England by that weekend, so I'm offering use of a basic kayak, a bunch of our own restrictive rules*, and a paid entry to someone who's prepared to have a go.

If we have more than one applicant, I have no idea how the hell to choose, but known expertise and past performance will count in some way, because despite our self-imposed limitations we're a competitive bunch and last is not a placing.

He's allowed clothing that's outside the team budget, so a shell suit and an external bra/pants set in leopardskin would comprise G1's fees.

Though we'll happily venture no further than a couple hundred metres from the shore, we'd absolutely destroy his present reputation as a fisherman, so I think George might decline.

Would someone please bring this thread to his attention?

Then they couldn't fish, isn't that one of team obsolete's rules - only one rod to be used at any one time?
