Be careful if you possibly think it is bilharzia, and get to a doctor quickly. This is nasty and you really dont want to see what it can do to you in the later stages, its not pretty.

I used to have a rubber duck on the front of my boat, and one day I gave it to someone to look after so it didnt get lost, and I forgot to get it back!

A friend of mine carries 1 shoe around, as he says that you will never lose both shoes, so they one may come in handy!

I think it has been a bit more difficult organising the series this year, as if I am not mistaken, the BCU pulled the funding.
