Martin Dougal, Nelson and Myself are considering a cruise saturday, probably from the Strand in Gillingham up the Medway to Allington Lock for a pint at the malta inn.

Low tides 10am, so want to kick off around then.

Give me a buzz of you'd like to bring you nicely tried out, reliable hover along! http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Hi Russ,

The Medway is nearly in flood today!!

The tributaries are over flowing already from the rain this week!

Flow is much more than normal!

Keep an eye on the weather forecast!

Enjoy your cruise!

For those not familiar with the Medway have a look at this guide to see what the Medway is like!

Hi Russ,

The weather was far better than I expected!

Did you make it from The Strand up to Allington?

Hope to see you tomorrow at the S.E Branch meeting.

Hi Martin,

Glad it went well.

My day went like this.

Supported my son at his football matches.

Sucessfully glued the glass base back on your glass trophy that I collected for you from the Ramsgate Coastal Races.

Printed the Agenda in readiness for Sunday's South East branch, hope you can make the meeting arrive 7:45pm for 8:00 start.
