Henry and Jordan gatecrash the Mens C party
Ian and Stu Interclub virgins (so to speak) wonder what the 'eck they've let themsleves in for (keep smiling...)
Nettie preapres to race..or is that racing to prepare? Dunno
Lizzie tests the temperature and reports it ..."warmish". Which is nice.
The Ricmond pogo stick championships commence. Spyce starts with a comendable 104.
Brett, considered a "no-hoper" before the event surpises everyone with his 25
Richard wonders if he'll make the Pogo final
Spyce's fottwear may be giving her an advantage
Becs laughs at Nicks pogo attempt (harsh but fair)
Juniors takeover camera

Ha! Ha! no no...we're not hiding the only No 3 board left, are we Raite?
Daan doing unnecessary draw strokes (huh)
Lizz n' Kath test the conditions
Y'see it was an accident I thought it was a number 4 board, easy mistake, not deliberate at all, Y'see?
Raite extracts himself from under the pontoon
Mens C K4 home in triumph
I'm just looking for my boat, I'm sure I left it under the pontoon
Ah, there it is, some idiot has filled it with water
Good job I found it, could've sunk
Graham tries out new boat extension
Peter & Raite back from smuggling number boards

Exactly how deep is this?

Start on the right...left?...no the other right...GO!
A successful outing..great stuff boys
No, I haven't got a sideline in number boards...I always carry a full set, who doesn't??
Anna complains about smock..."Like a kite" says she. Very fashionable at Richmond CC says I
Evetta pretends its windy...not really that bad tho' we did have to nail her feet to the pontoon for this shot
Racing is suspended...disbelief is...not
Wots yellow and black with funny coloured boots?
Jordan lets slip that it's his birthday (schoolboy error)

Richmond stand around on pontoon...other people leave
Pogo championships begin...Jordan with an underwhelming 4 hops
Lizzie with 104!!
Ulrik doesn't appear to trouble the scorers with his effort
Trevor after "Terrible Legs" emergency surgery. Not successful apparently
Nick does a creditable 4.5 hops taking him to second place
