Great, Sarah! We've got a Team Australia that would be perfect for you. You're bib 194:


Robynne- of course I didn't even think of that! Will add that to my to-do list for after the event :)

Hi Abby - I've just found out there is a Dutch team (Team Flying Dutchmen-Vliegende Hollanders), would I be able to join that as that's where most of my work is focused these days?

That's great, Sarah! We'll update our notes.

Hi Sarah ! And welcome to the team, it's possible we are going to work with two Flying Dutchmen teams, because team one in fact is full already, so we'll split things up a bit and create a second team and added you to Team Flying Dutchmen two now ;)

Hi John

I have taken myself off the Musty Dusty Clean-a-Thon page, as I will not be participating with that team - I'm leading Team GB-Gen!  Unless you wanted to create a totally new page (in which case I won't be on it, I'm afraid)?  I have several Pre-1500 people on my team who might like to change over to yours.  Here's our Thon page so you can check with them:
