I won't be at the feed station because i'm a selfish pig.

And I'll have my two little nippers in tow.
Based on last year's experience, by far the best location to support on the run was the bank opposite the HP clubhouse, near the start/transition end of the lake. So our little crew will be based there, supporting the wonderful MuffinTop. Maybe see some of you there??

Rio, are you and The Bitch not camping?

My t-shirt arrived today  And also a hoody just in case - but looking at the weather forecast I think a pirate waterproof might have been a better idea!!

Am having a slight panic about what on earth to pack as it's been a loooooong time since I've spent the night under canvas - but I guess a tent, bed, sleeping bag & some lights will make a good start!!  Am heading off to Wimbledon tomorrow afternoon so that only leaves me Friday night to get organised - oops & eek!!  But looking forward to meeting everyone!!

Still waiting for my two hoodies and 4 t-shirts. A little worried that the email from spreadshirt still refers to them having "Crashie's Squawky Mate" on the back, even though I asked for it to be removed. We'll see.... i'm sure my kids would love Crashie.... if they met him... her 

28/06/2012 at 10:33

I hope Crashie is male, otherwise I shall be regarding Squish in a whole new light from no on !!!

Schmunkee - you should have received an email from me a couple of days ago, "un-volunteering" Mr plodder from feedstation duty. Very sorry, especially about the last minute notice, but having weighed it all up, it's better not to drag kids along, he wouldn't have been much use as a volunteer/marshall whilst looking after little ones.


They will be on the course, in pirate hoodies/t shirts, waving pirate flags

I seem to have been 'volunteered' to secure a Pirate camping area HPP (non electric hook up). So I plan to arrive early afternoon on Friday, so I will try and grab an area for anyone wanting to camp as part of the Pirate massive. Hopefully the guys on site will be happy to let us commandeer an area, otherwise I know Seren wil be there early as well, so I get her to scare people off , she is a DoubleIM afterall.

If you wish to come and camp with everyone else, it may be easier if you PM me and I'll send you my mobile so you can get in touch when you arrive Friday/Sat. This will also give me a rough idea of the size of area to grab.

In addition, Schmumkee has asked me (along with others) to go on the recce with her on Saturday so I know exactly where we need to go/be Sunday morning. So even if you don't want to camp with everyone (understandable!!) it might be worth coming to say hello or getting in touch so we can all meet and travel together Sunday morning (Schmunkee will leading people from the Hotel to the feedstation).

Just popping in to say to all the feedstation peeps that YOU'RE ALL ACE!

Thank you in advance
28/06/2012 at 20:56

Just sneaking in to say hello, as instructed by Meldy (whose instructions I dare not disobey, and who assures me you are all nice) 

I've dithered around so long I fear there's no hope of me being able to do anything useful  However, I'll be hanging around on the run course and at the end waving a WAISTER flag (if I manage to invent one before Sunday, otherwise it'll be a t shirt ) and cheering on Meldy and Podds especially, but all of you really  

Happy to lend a hand with anything is there's last minute things need doing As it stands I'm planning to arrive probably about 5pm (ish) and stay til the end, and I'll be coming in the car (last train back to Sheffield is 9.30 and I fear that may cause too much nail biting and a night sleeping on the train platform!)

However, I'm only coming that late because I don't know anyone at all and the whole day is a long time to spend hanging about on your own, however exciting things are! So - if I can be useful before that I'm happy to come earlier, just let me know  

Otherwise, if you see me hanging around near the end hovering (nearly said hoovering then - very unlikely) near a pirate looking shifty, please say hello

From what I can gather, all of the Pirates look shifty

Good - I'll fit right in then
