I'll go whatever's decided, assuming I get permission

I really don't mind but based on the facts presented to me, I get the impression Austria is the better race.  After doing Lanza, Wales and spectating at Nice, ahem, I'd probably prefer the flattest.

Democratically, having re-read the thread, more people want Austria.

Austria 2015!

What time of year is Austria?  Can we go back to Bala too?  If we did that, I'd probably go off pop with excitement.

Yes, three in total


Should mean a prize for everyone at the Pirate party

NR it's still on my list somewhere but Nice 2014 has shifted over its the need for a support crew and accompanying runner that's a pain

Austria. Awesome.

just to throw my weighty presence in

2014 was blown out as the 10th anniversary as it was "agreed" (as much as you fuckers can agree on anything) that 2015 really represented the 10th anniversary of the first pirate ship sailing.  sure 2004 was a start to an extent but the PSOF thing came about as a consequence of that exploratory trip.  it's like saying who discovered America - Columbus is credited but Erik the Red got there a few 100 years earlier in reality.

and I really can't see why IMCH needs to be the 10th anniversary trip - it's been done twice, yet the Austria 2007 trip was one of the best and it has yet to be done again as big group.   

even we could be tempted to come out of retirement - stop fecking sniggering at the back  - for Austria 2015.  Petal has a score to settle there and I haven't but wtf...   note the key word - tempted - that is not a committment.  other things would need to happen to make it a commitment......

I missed Austria the first time round so I'd vote Austria. Your photos made it look beeeeauuutiful.

What was that  you were saying on Saturday FB

25/06/2013 at 09:47

the temptation is always there TL - it's the need that isn't 

25/06/2013 at 10:06

Cougs/FB - as far as I can tell, the voting is over.  It's been called several million times that it's Austria 2015, nobody is strongly arguing in favour of Switzerland.  I think it's really funny that we've swapped them as there's something distinctly piratey about not quite managing to agree on the anniversary year nor race so this seems a perfectly pirately solution.

I think Barlos or Meldy should just start the thread now....

No, sorry, meant Austria

25/06/2013 at 10:35

Plus Austria is where I asked the good lady Mrs GOM to marry me, and she has never looked back since.....................


Oh by the way I am not here.....

25/06/2013 at 10:41

Are you sure?  I got the impression from the good lady Mrs GOM that she was sending you here???

Slim i am having a major purge on my spending habits i waste tons of cash on relacing kit that is still usable just cos i fancy new stuff and buying tri gadgets that i do not really need i think if i am pretty strict with myself i could get a trip abroad sorted it will be to late for Roth but if IM France is still open and if i have saved sufficient cash??

If i do not go abroad i have something in mind but dont know if i have the guts to go for its basically Norseman but with midges

RBM you should defo do the Celtman one day Guys from my old Tri Shop in Edinburgh help run it. Got great reviews last year.  Don't worry about the midges - you'll be too high up in the mountains for them
