Is it to early to start the debate?

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......

What was that  you were saying on Saturday FB

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

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....

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.....

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

Celtman! Have a look at the video below


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

Mouse - I think Mrs GOM should enter, maybe you should send her a text/email and say I have just put her name on the entry list....

Cougie - I have no idea what you mean..........

25/06/2013 at 10:56

GOM - I think you should do it together.  You could nip off the run course and put on your wedding outfits to cross the line holding hands.

I've not got her mobile number...

Cougs - that made me laugh.

I actually thought that we had a 2015 thread ...!  Spent half an hour looking for it 

I'm not sure starting one this early is wise as it will just fall by the way side througout this and early part of next year ... however, I have made contact with the Youth Hostel in Klaggers to see if they will take an early provisional booking considering the problems seemingly faced by those who have entered for next year, they seem fairly happy to take a provisional booking, they can only supply dorms of 4 or 6 which is what we had last time if I remember rightly.  I suspect 4 would be favourite over 6
I have no idea how many people we are likely to have and dont expect anyone to have to make a decision now
I would hazzard a guess of booking say 10-12 rooms now and that with a provisional booking it will be easier to add a few more if needs be ?

Nice one Meldy. Good idea!
