PDs Stuff

PD Member Since: October 08
How I Got Into Paddling: I was told I’€™d never make it as a pole vaulter.
Favourite PD Moment: Too many. Any given moment I’€™m paddling.
Three words to describe PDs: We Happy Few.
How Other PDs Describe Stuart: Maybe something like “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight….it’s the size of the fight in the dog”. Not infering that Stewie is a dog but he welcomes challenges latches on to them like a Bull Terrier and doesn’t let go. A fountain of (obscure) knowledge, Committed (to drinking), Expensive tastes (in sofa’s), Strong of heart, body and mind, Competitive, Smooth talker with a dash of panache with the ladies…, not there’s anything wrong with that! Viking warrior, Braveheart, fun, a good laugh, and a great friend. Keen, Grunter (makes some strange noises during a race), loves the “BLING”, quiet, demure, shy…. kidding! A tree hugger with with hot arms, sturdy boots, a top notch personality and gods gift to seat 10 paddling!
