Only after the barmaid wanted to know if you had a room for the night

I'm surprise any of you remember! Lucky I was sober enough to make sure we got back to the campsite unscathed (apart from OC!) 

Mind you with the bad vibe in Henley about the whole race, we might have problems finding a suitable location! Cat - perhaps we should undertake some advance recces??


Don't remember what happened to OC? These supporters eh? Not much cop...

Count me in for advanced beerage!

I don't remember that! Did she want some Schmunkee love too?

Hmmm....last time it started shortly after 11am, and finished in the dark, with a hardy few, an audacious barmaid and a brave taxi driver.

I think the audacious barmaid may still need paying

Rafi got confused.... I had issues on the Saturday night staying upright on the walk home to the campsite...... too many beers and a slimy kerb = OC on his back!

I bailed early on the Sunday - Pirate post race parties when you dont race are hard...... everyone is so 'yehah!!!!', and if you dont race (but wanted to but couldn't then you are ..... 'hmmmph.... if only'....

Scuba
pirate post race parties are the +1 to racing as a pirate.
You sit around, eating / drinking beer, voting on silly conmpetitions, and celebrating the fact you did it!  Great fun a d a greatb way to finnish the race off

Note it helps to be known... so post lots on RW so poeple know who you are and introduce your self to any pirate you meet!
buy pirate kit to race in
buy pirate t-shirt (hollywoods site) with your name on it, then wear it all weekend so people know who you are

Excellent and well reasoned response from the organiser there. Some of the councillors comments seem to be libellous ? Well spotted Rafiki.

Its seem JustRacing are still getting a lot of grief according to the lastest article in the local rag - see link UltimateBadger posted!!

If they manage to get permission for 2013, I can see it being the last!!

IF (hopefully a big IF) it were to be cancelled, have you thought about which IM you might do?

My brother and his wife are coming to lunch on Christmas Day. We have been asked to invite (and gladly agreed) his parents in law, as otherwise they would be alone at Christmas. They live in Henley, should make for an interesting conversation if they turn out to be the NIMBYS on this I suspect they are!!

Well, if it is cancelled, maybe we should orgainse a Pirate IM, much the same as SA's DIY Half? Maybe, i don't know, say around Henley on perhaps 8th Spetember - nice and local for me. I've even got a route in mind

Maybe we could get some very large lorries to dirve around the route at about 15mph, who promise not to overtake any cyclists? Should keep it nice and safe, and as good as closed roads!

They can pretend they are on a purely coincidental fuel protest or something?!

Not really. I'm really hoping it won't be cancelled - not sure what I'd do if it was!

I can't see them cancelling it at this late stage. The councillors clearly have no idea of the scale of this thing.  

I'm sure the local hotels and restaurants want the business. Thats got to be worth more than some teddy bear shop.He's probably lucky if he sells one in a weekend.

Henley needs to get its head out of its arse quite frankly

Well said Meldy.

Is it me or do they seem unaware of the other races that challenge organise world wide? It reads as if they think their's is the only race challenge do?
