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

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.

Sorry

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

CAMPING AT OUTLAW

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).

Cheers

Raf

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

AN URGENT PLEA FOR HELP ON THE FEED STATION

I have just done a quick count up of bodies who have volunteered for the feed station and I am sorry to say that I don't think I have enough people to fulfil our responsibilities whilst the bike is taking place.

These include filling bottles, handing out said bottles, clearing out the bottle dump, handing out gels and bananas, as well as marshalling 5 traffic hot spots out on the course and be in charge of the Special Needs Bags

I have 16 (kind) volunteers for the feed station which is not enough to fulfil the extra responsibilties we have as well as covering the swap over of marshalls out on the bike course

It would be great if friends/family could spare a couple of hours whilst you are on the bike ride to lend a hand and ensure the Pirate Feed Station is a success.

So please can I ask you to ask your supporters if they can give us a couple of hours of their time on Sunday whilst you are out on the bike course. It would be very much appreciated

Your Pirate Team needs you (well, needs your family and friends )

Thank you

you wont be alone!!

Wear something yellow and black, help help help at feedstation and then cheer me on later since i'll be doing the "run"

P.S. I've never met any of these nutters other than Raf yet, so really I only know one more person than you and i'm spending a whole weekend with them!

See you sunday!
