Aww ... thats a lovely race 

Will we see you in a supporting role at Nice ?

Unfortunately Meldy at the moment we cannot commit to it due to shop and event commitments, although it would be really good to be there.

Toucs, I have been goaded into agreeing to sign up by a mate who was annoyingly close to qualifying for Kona in his first outing at Ironman UK 2011 (albeit with a shortened Marathon!).

He has my cash and instructions to get up at crack of sparrows fart on 01 July to enter both of us and hopefully a couple of other mates currently perched comfortably on the fence.

Any idea of how quickly it usually sells out?

about 10 mins - seriously....

one tip to guarantee an entry to IMA, is to volunteer the year before as a marshal/helper as they are given preferential entries for the following year.  we know a couple who do that - volunteer one year, race the following.  I think they've done IMA 3x that way.

and that's why it sells out so quickly - all the preferential entries leaving fewer for Joe Public.  happens that same way at Florida

anyway - I thought Austria was the front runner for the pirate's 10th birthday trip in 2015??

Can't the Pirate 10th birthday be Sweden?  We fancy that one (yes i said we)

Talking of which, I think 'Pirate Championship' is the most valid reason to call 2015 the 10th anniversay.

Lets make a call and say Austria 2015 then?

That just leaves next year

Never let Barlos have the final word ...   



We need to be careful with the 2015 choice for the exact reason FB points out, either that or go via a company/package deal and guarantee our numbers

I thought it was already agreed to be Switzerland and the revisiting of Austria is confusing me. I may just trawl the discussion thread in a fit of pedantry to prove my point.

I think it was agreed Switzerland as well, the trouble is we have had this conversation many times and have come up with the majority of IMs as an answer

Last I heard it was IMCH.

I think that Swizerland was agreed also because we stand more chance of getting every one in !

IMCH would be fab for 2015.  

We'd love to do IM Nice with the pirate crew but it clashes with one of our events.  so hopefully Austria it is

I was going to post something but decided not to cos it was bound to be misinterpretted by certain people who don't have my best interests at heart

14/06/2013 at 12:38

Sorry - male with more than one thing to think about monent - is IMCH Swizerland or Austria?

IMCH is Switzerland and probable Pirate championship event for 2015

A mate turns 40 in 2015.  Stupidly he is in love with the idea of tackling an Ironman (his first) and a landmark one at that.  Lanza it is!

Haha Trogs you're busted
