Congratulations Chas, Mark is waiting for a mail from you; let him know your address and a t-shirt will soon be in your possession (perhaps in time for Christmas).
Wow, thanks Heather, the Pentax Optio WP in the BA pocket wins the day;
Paddler Simon Lloyd on the Upper Tryweryn.

And now we all know what those green & white poles are for above ski-jump.. to catch the auto focus out.

And if you think my photography skills are bad, you should see me paddle!

Will PM T-Shirt details on.

I've received your details, Chas.

Did I mention the other prize? Your photo will be used for the cover of 'Paddles Magazine' for five consecutive months.

I'm just glad that he was so bad with his camera that he failed to even take the picture of me going down. LOL

You cheeky rapscallion, Rainsley.

I've got some good entries for this - and i don't mind that I won't win the prize, but once more I have totally forgotten how to upload images. Again.

Here is one which I believe provides an accurate representation of the overall appearance of Mr. Mark Rainsley.

I thank you.

"As painted by Edvard Munch..."

I sometimes wish someone would steal Hopper and hide him away from the world.

You should be so lucky Councillor Redding.

With your luck whoever stole me would probably hide me in the North West of England près de Chester - as nobody would ever think to look for me there...


Laters,



Ed.

P.S. I feel that more people could back me up on the small dog looking a lot like Rainso. Come on, he won't bite (Mark, that is. The dog would probably have your arm off).

Bad Photo Prize

Post by Lambs to the Water »

Given that some thieving scumbag seems to have nicked the bad photo comp prize. Lambs to the Water will donate a pair of Level Six Neoprene Pogies to Chas to for his stunning effort.

Chas - If it's OK for Mark to let me have your details I'll get them in the post to you tomorrow - should arrive before Xmas even with the slow post at the moment.

They will not look very good in the pub but will definitely keep your hands warm while paddling on winter days.

Cheers
Tim

Many thanks for stepping into the breach there, Tim - everybody say, 'Thank you Tim' and remember to buy something from LTTW in the near future.

Aw Shucks; what can I say Tim except Thanks!
And I'll try and put them pogies into immediate action in Wales over the New Year.

Guidebook, really sorry to hear your own T's ended up on scummy backs...I share your pain; at least they didn't nick the laptop.

I don't think anyone has got it in for Level 6. Mendip is sponsored by them so I doubt that he is being rude about them and Mr Waverley's pogies certainly did look very nice and a lot less restrictive than other brands. He certainly seemed happy about them (in fact the only thing he was happy about that weekend :-) )

In for L6

Post by Lambs to the Water »

Rick

Thanks for the concern but I think you got the wrong end of the stick.

I don't think anybody on the guidebook forum has it in for Level 6. Come and have a look at the kit yourself at the Canoe Exhibition in Birmingham in March where hopefully Mr Mendip will also be around.

Cheers
Tim

Rick do you mean there lightning paddles? I thought they just had normal shafts (cranked and strait) I did not realise they had grips as such or is it that you have somehow managed to confuse Lambs to the Water with Seven 2?
Seven 2 have recieved a lot of flack on this forum, an awfull lot of flack in fact, so much flack that Tom (Memdipmammoth) has agreed not to mention them again (he provided a lot of the flack) and I am not going to go into reasons agian but if you are interested then you will have to search the forum (try using Saga as a key work).

Brief History

Post by nwilko »

1) Seven 2 (make & sell paddles) had poor customer service and upset a customer (who was right to be piss** off).
2) Seven 2 got lots of flak on the forum as a result.
3) Seven 2 in the PR coup of the year offered to give some new paddles in a photo comp (not the one run on this site)
4) MendipMammoth wins the photo comp.
5) MM gets very narked about the long long long delay in getting his prize.
6) MM gets 2 paddles in delivery mix-up upsetting another paddler, but its all sorted (without seven 2's assistance) by said paddlers meeting via this forum.
7) Mark runs a photo comp on this forum, T-shirts are the prize, prize gets knicked at the dart weekend. Level6 offer some pogies as prize, prize is given to winner, winner reports on forum hes happy with the pogies.
8) MM's paddles get used a few times and start delaminate.
9) MM gets upset - suprisingly so.
10) As a New Year gesture MM promises never to complain about the paddles ever again.

Summary > Level6 (from whom ive bought nothing/had no contact) have nothing whatsoever to do with Seven2, but ive no reason for not dealing with them in the future (when i need kit and have money).

Seven2 > i neither have anything nor want anything from them.

The only links that can be established are :-
Both companies offerd their wares as prizes in photo comps.
MM recieves support from Level6
MM was involved in the Seven2 saga.
Number Seven follows number 6.
Number 6 is before number 7.

The only thing missing from this thread is now DK offering to sell to Level6 the website rights LevelSix.com etc..

If this were to occur i would believe in aliens for sure.

Just about right. Gem ended up with 2 sets of paddles.

For a while I had a set of lightning paddles, but now dont. Lightning and Level 6 both come from LTTW, thus confusion reigns. Or not.

And yep, apparently I will be at the Canoe show with level 6. :)
