This is a general call for written and pictorial contributions relating to the theme of ‘boat’. We’ll accept canoe, kayak, dinghies, rafts, pleasure craft, fan-boat, house boats and cruise ships and those pushing the envelope. No word limit, and multiple images are allowed. Judges yet to be determined, but brace yourself for the subjectivity of the occasion. Do it for the love first and foremost and allow your competitive nature to play second fiddle. It can be descriptive, emotional, deep or funny, or whatever you want essentially. Gutter language will be frowned upon but not necessarily excluded. Dave Roberts, you’ll be happy to know the t-shirts are of better quality these days, but you are going to have to earn it all over again. Closing date: end of April.
