Guests: Men's Coxless Four (2004 Olympic Games, Gold medal winners)
Being a rowing fan and a (very amateur) rower myself, I would have to have Sir Steve, Sir Matthew, Tim and James high on the guest list. I saw Tim Foster at Henley Royal Regatta last year. And Steve Redgrave turned on the Christmas lights in Meadowhall one year when I was at unversity in Sheffield. My dad saw Matthew Pinsent on Hod Hill in Dorset. Apparently his parents live near there. And a friend of mine did the Atlantic Rowing Race last year, the one that James Cracknell did, so she knows him. Lots of 'ins'. How exciting. Nice to have some tall men around. Plus they all know the Queen too. She's such a hob-nobber.
