I have been trying to get hold of Mark the last couple of days, be he doesn't really answer txt messages. What i'm after is the email he sent out about the 1* river trip tomorrow. He did send it to me but my work firewall bounced it back, Is there any chance of anyone forwarding it onto me at

Not sure if we have to bring packed lunch and what time it finishes etc etc.
