Yeh, but for us civilised people (with or withour skirts ) its probably quicker to get to Sweden than Bala!

That all depends on what you drive

Bala isn't that far away. I've driven to race there several times and I would 100% endorse that it's worth the effort. I wish we did all still go and do it.

The problem for me is that it's sat poorly on the calendar for the last couple of years.

Its not sitting well for this year either but we should make a concerted effort to make it happen next year  

Doesnt it sell out around Christmas time?

I don't know Melds. The last time I did it, it didn't sell out at all. The downside of such an excellent race being it's become very popular I guess.

It normally clashes with Enduroman

I appear to have killed the thread

So, has a decision been made on where I am holidaying next year whilst watching you lot suffer?

Is it Sweden? Is it not?

Nah not Sweden ...  ;-)

I did chat to the coach the other day and he seems to think we have ages yet to sort out when/where, I am of the inclination that people need to know and to book holiday time and to sort out pennies and what have you

If you take it as read that 2015 is Austria for the PSOF Anniversaire Champs - entries will need to be done as soon as poss after the openning date or hour which is likely to be July ??
2014 (IMO) needs to be one that doesnt fill or that people can enter fairly late in 2013/early 2014 and then have time to find the funds for the big 'un

Outlaw we have done and that will still always get the crowds of newbies as I think it will become the longdistance version of Bala
Henley we will have done this year
Most of the European ones have been covered
At the risk of a few gasps there is still the IMUK option and there is the IMWales option for 2014, neither of which are beginner friendly but as has been pointed out previously any IM that has a Pirate presence is newbie friendly

There are a plethora of new Ironman distance races in the UK springing up but (and again IMO only) the best atmosphere is where the majority are

I think we should make an effort to get a big group to Bala 2014 for the middle distance
and I think unless there is huge opposition we should do
IMWales in 2014

IMAustria 2015

Please discuss

as I have mentioned before in this thread - you need to factor in that 2014/15 MAY see a new UK IM event.  Both Bolton and Wales only have a licence for another year I believe and my source says, WTC might can both events and just have one UK IM event but not based at either of those venues.   

but like many things WTC there are facts and rumours and that one is still in the rumour mill

If there is a new one for 2014 then they need to announce fairly soon I would have thought & 2015 is spoken for

I disagree with Meldy. I think it should be Sweden.

Mousey wants a sabatical and if we go to Wales then she wont be able to resist !!!   

21/02/2013 at 19:42
Ha ha ha!!!

Not at all. I just thought that the champs have been in the UK for two years now and I would be nice to actually *go* somewhere!
21/02/2013 at 19:44
It would be nice. Auto correct on phones is a bitch!

Sweden would be a new flag on the Admirals tattoo I think ?
I like the sound of Sweden.

C'mon, get out your wallets and passports and come play in Oz. Port Macq is May time, WA/Busso is December, or IMNZ, Cairns, Challenge Wanaka.

You know it makes sense ...

Lol yes it would be Cougs !!!

I'd need more than my wallet Kanga  

Mousey, so you are not having a year off then? !

21/02/2013 at 20:09

Mouse is having this year off i thought?

I'm doing Wales this year, I'm not IM next year apparently so i've been told.
