What a good idea Meldy
Feck right off !!!
I'll be in the support crew!! Sits back and waits .... ;)
Okay, I'll stand up for some battering.I think this is a good idea. The Pirates is becoming globally recognised - I spoke to a random Yank in Kona who organises European IM tours, and he knew all about us. This would be a two way street - the Team would benefit from some form of sponsorship/free or discounted stuff, but the idea would be to make sure there were discounts associated with any companies that sponsored us, that applied to ALL Pirates. The Team would benefit from the brand, recognisability and support of the Pirate massive.
They could be a pirate elite sorta like our version of the SAS
What as, ballast?

Flyers, totally agree, its all about evolution.This would be an extra dimension and can still be fun
I think it's a good idea, guessing it would be done on an invite basis, ie show some potential and get brought into the group.?
Ohh errr we are a " brand" I suppose we are getting that way come to think of it
Nah ... pink
Max if a brand is something that is instantly recognisable then yes !
FF sort of groomed?
I am warming to the idea altough my personnal Kona plan doesnt need speed just a dogged determinstion to outlive the opposition
Melds i think the danger is in a brand as in has a marketable value rather than identity
Pirate hit squad Max???!!!
I think we are both, we choose to be just the one ?
