How about Florida? Apart from I don't know what date it's on.

Warm, flat, accommodation shouldn't be too expensive and we can all go to the Magic Kingdom afterwards.

Not a clue. The thought just struck me that maybe we should all go to America but then again, places over there are like rocking horse poop. As you say.

As IM gets all the more popular then I suppose you run the risk each time that not everyone will get in .. unless we get block booking like we did  *errrr ...* Switzerland?

Apart from Sweden is there an IM we havent done (discounting the ones Stateside)?

09/02/2013 at 18:28
I dunno. If we're sticking to Europe and closer to home then Sweden still strikes me as the obvious choice if the intention is to be brand driven.

I can't remember what the other keen choices were. Was it Barcelona and Vichy?

I'm secretly hoping you pick one I don't want to do so I can take my sabbatical.

If this is for 2014 id vote Barcelona, then Mrs Matt and I can go on after to visit family, make it into a proper holiday

Do you think it would help to get the big Pirate ship floating in a similar direction to reinvigorate the big Pirate gathering at Bala?

I think Bala was great as a 'secondary' Pirate gathering for the year and gave an early opportunity for people to camp together, meet fellow Pirates and discuss the next year's race.

I know it wouldn't work as a race for the Lanza racers this year but nothing to stop everyone coming anyway as it's such a great location for a break.

So, see you all there!

Slim my bruvs entered, i am waiting for an operation appointment which when it happens will stop me training for a few weeks so until i get a date i cant enter
Even if i cant race i will probably come down for the break and support you guys
Hope the weathers nice this year

Max - be good to see Dave and you of course if you can make it.  Be nice if it was a little less rain and wind then in 2011!

last obstacle is to explain to my wife where she's spending her birthday again this year 

10/02/2013 at 14:07
Think I might get a divorce and marry a woman with a more suitable birthday !
10/02/2013 at 18:47
bala has moved to Lanza this year!!!
except the eather is not moving to lanza
