Coach is sorting it all out, apparently!

And we all know who will actually end up sorting it, don't we

Ah good!  Thanks Siggy. Am I right in thinking the IM is breast stroke, back stroke, butterfly and fc and in what order?  It could be a laugh. 

03/11/2012 at 12:22

Butterfly, back, breast then crawl, I think.  And, I'd imagine, no more than a 25m length of each stroke!  

I've not done any swimming since Outlaw, so I hope the life guard is up to speed on his first aid!!

This will be a hoot. Specially if Barlos is organising.

Soupy, sure Siggy will give you a tow.

But that would mean Siggy staying in front of me and I'm in this to win it!

Alas I'll be at Bike Science all afternoon, being Retulled and drowling over Bike Porn, so will have to give the swim thingy a miss!!

I know Mouse has organised a buffet, but are there any plans for dinner prior to the main evening's festivities??

Is a buffet not enough for you ? 

You can always top up with a bag of chips  !!!

There is a very good chip shop on Christmas Steps adjacent to Bike Science.  You could pop out for a snack.

I'm a proper athelete and need a balanced diet - if i going on a serious 10 hour drinking binge, I like to balance it with a good greasy meal beforehand

Looking at 11.50 per lane per hour, thats £45 for four lanes for an hour which I think will be the best option.

As there are 9 of us so far that means we could have 3 competition lanes and another lane for those warming up, cooling down and generally splashing about etc.

Im currently waiting for confirmation from Hengrove pool, which wont come till next week as the pool lane arranger coordinator thingy person is on holiday this week.

Did you want me to try an alternative venue, Barley or are you happy with that?

Im happy with that I think.  Im assuming its nearish to the centre/easyish to get to?

Hengrove says it's got a 50m pool! There's no way, at my current swimming fitness level, that I'd manage 100m of butterfly and live!! I'd be struggling at 50 tbh!
I'd probably struggle with the IM too! But everything else, cost, location etc looks good to me!

Hengrove has a 50m & 25m pool, im booking the 25m pool.

Re the butterfly, I cant even do 25m, 

The IM will be for a laugh, all events are optional, also there will be special dispensation to allow people to do doggy paddle instead of butterfly or mix and match between the two

I really fancy this swimming gala thing but I can't make the evening stuff.
