Annie Venables has put out a call for anyone spotting her lost oars:

"Dear LBT Members - can you help! ......
I lost my oars  in the river (Saturday 29th June) at Franklin, whilst taking Aotea alongside near the Cartela.

Putting it out there for anyone that uses the river to keep an eye out. They are much loved wooden oars, well varnished, black rubber oar stoppers for the rollocks, and a copper tip on one of the blades. They have been with the boat for many a year and I am devastated to think I may have lost them.

If anyone finds them please let me know– then take them in LBT or hand to Dave Nash. There will be a reward! And huge amounts of gratitude. Please share with anyone you know that uses the river. Living in hope......and some lessons well learnt.

And big thanks to Pete Laidlaw for rescuing me so I didn't have to swim ashore!!!! Annie Venables. 0438 602 502
