We've come to the conclusion that if put the the ka in the tent, a few adjustments - all good.

Schmunkee Is it alright if I help out on the Feed station and can I bring my two little mushrooms with me. I think slag is coming as well with his two kids is that ok He would like to help as well.

BM how old are the the Feed Station is a busy and potentially dangerous place for Miller's with bikes whizzing through st a rate of knots

button - thanks to you and Slag for offering.  Re children - I don't know what ages they are so I am not automatically dismissing the idea, but I don't think the feed station is a safe environment for very young mushrooms and Slagiatt's, so would caution against it if they are, for example, younger than 5 or 6.  If they are slightly older and more safety-aware, then I can see no problem as I am sure they will enjoy helping.  I guess what I am saying is, it's down to you and what you feel comfortable with, but there would be no objections from Barlos.

Ha ha!  I took so long drafting my reply to make sure it sounded ok, then RBM comes in and says it in two lines

she was trying to be tactful that young children and busy people and fast bikes don't mix.........

but you can't put an age on it can you.my middle son would have been responsible enough to do it at a fairly young age and not get in the way or bored or annoy people..........or run infront of bikes

my other two would have been dangerous at 13............

Yeah, thanks Seren, I guess I was trying to be tactful as it is basically up to Slag and button as to whether they think their children would be happy/safe, but also I respected that they had asked if it was ok.

So ner, Razor

Dog is obviously a request too far. Bananas and gels are really all anyone could ask for.

Perhaps OK for Ironman Korea

My kids are 13 and 10 years old and the same goes for slag is that all ok.

10/06/2013 at 05:23

BM as Seren said only you and Slag know your kids and how they will handle 6 odd hours st a feed station, at that ages I can't see it as a problem, there's lots to do and I reackon they will have a great time I do think the final word is down to Barlos who is organising the thing

10/06/2013 at 07:56

BM - were your kids at the DIY event? One of them did a fab job at the feed station there. The Outlaw is a whole lot busier of course and no chairs or chip butties/endless tea or coffee unless we can get Barlos organised with a chip and burger waggon. 

10/06/2013 at 07:57

We all know Barlos is so laid back he is virtually horizontal, so as long as you and slag are happy that your children will be ok, then I am sure he will not be at all concerned.

I can vouch for 1 of Slagiatts kids, did a great job at the DIY Half on the feed station
