Gafirs

As promised, we went down to Gafirs today to hand over a cheque.. Many thanks to Chris for being the catalyst, as we wouldn't have gone otherwise, and we wouldn't have had such a fun start to the New Year..

1. Holly handing over the cheque.
2. Launching the rib.
3. Yes, it's a diesel.
4. "Checking" the rib is working.
5. Yes, we were doing 10 knots.

Great photos and a job well done, Tony

Really pleased to see GAFIRS benefiting again from RIBnet. We had a similar presentation and tour earlier in the year GAFIRS - visit and presentation following the successful 2004 RIBnet Treasure Hunt.

Cheers Bogi and Richard..

When I mentioned to Joyce, (the fund raising lady,) that it was on behalf of RIBnet, she told me about your previous donation Richard..

I also have a feeling its where Holly is gonna be spending the summer when she turns 14 in a years time.. Even though she cannot be part of the rib team until she is 17.. She had originally set her sights slightly higher..

"oo, oo, I fancy being that winch thingy person when I am older"

"really? You know they are also trained paramedics."

"does that mean they deal with people who have cut themselves?"

"yes dear, and with people who have fallen down cliffs and have bones sticking out."

"oh.. maybe I don't want to do that.."

AND...Silly RIBee persons that have forgotten to connect their kill cords and are flapping about in the water .

Don't they have a youth training scheme for teenagers, or is this what you're talking of when you mention next summer?

Should be realy good fun.

Its the youth training scheme Andy.. I would guess 14 is the lower limit for insurance purposes..
