thanks for the responses.  like ditchy mentions i'll be looking for decent bottles like the SIS bottles or the recent cervelo bottles, not the use once and fall apart type bottles you get at an IM.  shiva i'll send you an email later on.

I'll find out what the domain name registration and anything else that's needed will cost.  it's peanuts really.  but it'd be nice to have it covered for whenever the website gets handed on one day.  also any excess monies could go to other things like pirate flags.

so, i'll do some searching later on and get back to you all some time soon.

wondering about postage, do you reckon it'd be ok just sending a bottle in one of those plastic mail bags?  i ship ebay stuff all the time in them.  would cut down costs alot and there won't be much difference in the level of protection offered.

JD  Do you have an idea of timescales?  Would expected delivery fit around any Pirate Massives? Could a person be nominated per area and hand deliver them/distribute them at further events?

Shouldn't think that bottles would crack in the post, only worry would be the lid splitting but should be ok. I've used them for ebay gear in the past as well.

cona, yeah i reckon a normal bag will be alright, maybe some packing around it.

schmunkee - i think it'll take a few months to sort.  hopefully have the bottles in our hands by spring.  if it's earlier then that's great.  would be cool if the bottles delivery would fit around and event.  but for the ease of my brain it may just be easier for me to ship them individually. we can see.

seen a few sites that do bottles for events but the quality looks a little off given it'd be nice if they lasted a couple of years.  i had a look at the bottle that came through the post from triathlete europe the other day, freebie with the subscription.  it's a SIS design type bottle, well made.  anyway, took a look at their website and it looks good.

 http://www.wildoo.co.uk/eu-bottle.htm

 was looking at 750ml bigmouth 64mm cap

the freebie i got was 800ml one, but the wider mouth will make it easier to get powders in i reckon.

if we went with this, what do you want on it.  simplistic large skull on the bottom section, garland of skulls on the upper bit?

Beat me to it !

As for the correct yellow... The yellow is the above file did NOT exactly match the colour given below:

From

Mister W's take on the Yellow in "The Piratesbuff thread".

"In case anyone cares........ the colour is Yellow 108c. That's the official word from a very nice lady at LG."

Looking this up here:

Pantone colours

This appears to give a rough RGB value of R=247 G=217 B=23 (HTML f7db17)

The picture I originally posted above had a slightly different yellow (a bit brighter). I've now corrected the linked image to the above values.

Note: It is likely that other sources will give slightly different conversions of the pantone to RGB values.

e.g. The Pantone web site sample for 108C gives is shown with an RGB values of: R=252 R=217 B=0 (HTML FCD900)

I won't worry about ordering any bottles. Just take up my usual strategic position at the back of the pack at Roth and pick up all the freebies that fly out of the aero cages  Sweeeeeet !
