I have no idea if we should go for 2014 or 2015

Personally I prefer the 2015 for the anniversary bash, entry fees will be needed June/July time and that aint gonna happen

If the ship sails somewhere warm and where I'm less likely to have white van man pull alongside and call me a fat slag at 70m on the bike, I might come out of retirement. Or maybe just support lol.

Although the spiders that have been living in my bike since last summer might be upset. Still, they're safe for a while.

I did a bit of goofling:

2004 - Candy/Mon did Austria
2005 - Switzerland

Though I think you probably knew that anyway.

I think we were thinking along the same lines Mousey .. we were questionning when the 'aniversary' should be and I suspect then that Austria 2014 would be the truer one?

In which case, as they say, I'm out, was aiming for a trip to Austria 2015 and may well still do, just less people around in yellow 'n' black

Symes that doesnt mean it cant happen ... why not have an anniversary a year later

01/02/2013 at 09:07

So options are 2014 Austria or 2015 Switzerland?


I have no strong feelings either way.

Me neither really ... I suspect 2015 was bandied around previously as a significant date as it was the first 'proper' group outing?

I guess we can talk about it for a few more months yet

If its not Austria 2014, my vote def goes to Sweden.  I think we need a big ticket race, look whats happened this year about Challenge Henley! will people get excited enough about something like Challenge Barcelona (which incidentally isnt in Barcelona)

IM Brazil 2016, to coincide with the Olympics then

Barlos - I agree we need a big ticket race for 2014, I agree that Sweden will be ace but I think that the cost of getting there and being there will prohibit a lot of people

If Austria is 2015 then do we need a vote for 2014??

I dont get why Sweden is apparently so expensive?

Just had a look, BA return to Copenhagen in September £104, its 100 miles from Copenhagen to Kalmar, there must be a train?  either that or hire people carriers.  Also the option to take a car if you want to get the Ferry over.

I cant see why it should be more expensive than anywhere else, how much does it cost to get to Barcelona?

Any European event is going to be relatively expensive.
