I'm afraid the North London Sub Fun Run 2007 is hanging in the balance at the moment.
As reported earlier, we have had some water quality problems over the past few months, notably a thick green algae which has turned the pond water opaque. It was hoped that the winter months would kill of the algae, allowing us to dedge the pond of leaves and other rotting vegetation, but this hasn't happened.
I suggested draining the pond, however this is not an option, as the waterboard have handed the club a quote for two grand for refilling (pond holds about 40,000 gallons), ouch!
So we will have to find another way. No other members have any ideas, and no one has stepped forward to assist, which means it's left to me and my father to do the work, which sucks to be frank.
Compounding this, are a whole heap of club politics which are in danger of dividing the club, and have resulted in a lot of the 'doers' getting the hump and going on strike.
Suffice it to say I will do what I can, but I can't guarantee this years event will happen.
The pool run is still making progress however, and a glance at the events section will highlight that there are many events for model subbers to attend.
