I am just popping in to fire a warning shot across the bows re Pirate Kit for Outlaw 2013

I am assuming the current order will be finished and despatched around Christmas/New Year.  In order for another order to go in and be ready for Outlaw, it would have to be signed and paid for mid/end April.

From a selfish point of view, I am not keen to be sorting out another order so soon after the current one unless there is sufficient interest in two or three items ie each item meets minimum order level of 16 units.

So this is a warning to say that if you are thinking about buying kit for Outlaw 2013 and want to guarantee getting it, it may be worthwhile considering getting in on the current order or run the risk that there will be insufficient interest by mid/end April

Lots of love

damn and blast... sore throat!  Must be coz I'm tapiring.

Shmunks - daft question perhaps, but can someone order something now from this years order...?  Someone I know at work is just embarking on the IM journey.  I promise I haven't been recruiting!

and @EricisBananaMan... the experts say 80+ but we are all different.  If you are soft pedalling at a cadence of 60ish then you probably need to up your game a bit....  the pro cyclists are spinning at 90+.  Experiment... but don't expect instant gratification.... changing your "normal" cadence isn't an overnight thing.

Another top tip... start getting used to tri bars if you are going to use them. Its good to do this when wearing winter woolies as protection... (only kidding). If you are inflexible then you've got loads of time to start stretching and core strength work so you can hold an aero position longer on the day.

Shmunks - don't panic, I've worked it out having read the kit thread.  Yes, is the answer..   And mighty impressed with the admin going on behind the scenes.

Mighty impressive entry list there guys,  slightly disappointed for the first time in 4 years not to be on the Outlaw list but delighted that it sold out so quickly that I didn't have time to change my mind and do it

GP,  Volunteering is the new racing for 2013

Agree, i'm fresh back from volunteering at IMW and had a fab time.  Really good way to get involved without having to get cold

Silent Assassin's DIY HIM in May is perfect timing for Outlaw, and Mr & Mrs SA put on a great event last year.

Even if they did, I don't think PSOF should accept the prize. I doubt there are many Tri clubs (apart from maybe TriTalk) who have the number of members we do, and so it would be a pretty forgone conclusion that we would win.  I get the impression most other Tri clubs only have a handful of members at each IM, but I may be wrong

AbsoluteTri came very close last year. Game on!
