Topic : Salcombe Week - Thompson Paddle

Not that anyone really wants to win it but.................................

The Thompson Paddle has been missing for a few years - whoever won it last obviously wants to keep it?

If the paddle is lurking on your trophy shelf please can you bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!

Think Frank has won it the most in recent years, be good place to start. Otherwise the reports on website may give a clue.

Tried all the obvious ones! 

The problem is that for the last 4 years or so it has been a virtual trophy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Possibly a walk to the boating emporium in Island St is called for and seeing if MrS has a old paddle, life ring, paddling pool or something else equally suitable......................

I've tried hard, but have only achieved runner-up spot on about 3 occasions...

Alan and I got it for the moored boat incident and then the year after Frank and I were the rpod recipients, something to do with hoisting the kite at Gerston with a 200 yard lead only to find I had forgotten to tie on the sheets. Now after that I remember it made it to the Fort but after that I'm afraid I cou;ldn't say what happened to it.
