Sorry, a nag from me.

Most people should be being paid this week, Friday at the latest.  It would be really fab if I could get a few more tenners in and I can go and confirm our booking at the weekend.

Please would people PM me for my bank details.  From next week I'll start working my way down the list.

It should be really quite nice. They've reserved us a space at the back of the bar, and we'll have the buffet along one side and seating elsewhere.  They will then clear the food so that we have a bit more space to chat. 

The pirate Christmas dos have always been fabulous affairs.  A lot of us do know each other and banter online but we are also very welcoming and I know I enjoyed meeitng new faces last year.

I'll second what Mouse says about encouraging anyone to come along.  Would be great to meet some new people who are maybe entering races next year or thinking of doing a Tri.  Please feel welcome to join us.

Yeah, how can we support you at next years races if we don't know who you are building

I love it when a plan comes together.

I've had a flood of monies over the last couple of days.  My internet banking shows it coming in but doesn't tell me who it's from until 24 hrs later.  Everyone who has messaged me via FB or here, I will confirm receipt of funds so that you know it's come through.

I'm going to go to Antix today or tomorrow and hand over the wonga to secure the booking.

I'm really looking forward to this and I already have a choice of two outfits.  I just can't work out if the shoes go with the second option!

If anyone is looking for a slightly cheaper hotel there's The Washington.  Slightly further than the Travellodge but an easy walk.  Rooms going for £48 at the moment.  It's ok, I've stayed there before, nothing fancy but does the job.

Dresses not compulsory for men.

I'll check. I think jeans and trainers will be ok.

Oooh Raf, I shall keep an eye out for you on the Portway as I am there in a supporting capacity.  Are you wearing the yeller and black?

Yep - yella and black!

The venue is closed for a refurb - maybe someone should have told them to book that for the 2nd Dec???
