Melds - I think it's that WE don't know what we've let ourselves in for.

If I had known we would be dealing with two errant schoolboys on a regular basis, I would have hit the 'ignore' button after the first post

Oh, they will pay. In ways they have never thought possible

Ahhhh - you'd miss us too much

These are the two that are most wayward.

I have one other on the Retraining Programme. He is making progress, albeit slowly. I imagine he may be socialised by the end of 2013

U could hit ignore now though? We'd still talk about u though in our normal charming way...

'you'd miss us too much'

I reckon my aim would improve with firearms practice

Hello all, just been looking back over recent conversations and am a little confused. Firstly, isn't the kit thread usually a list of people buying kit?

Second I don't recall having any initiation / introduction / proof of intent test previously when ordering kit over the past few years. I fear I may have bypassed this when my good friend Kanga thrust me his Monaco for my first tri 2 1/2 years ago and told me to wear it as I'd get good support! (he's got a lot to answer for!)

Since then I've been building up to my first iron distance, doing a few ballbusters, Bala and various other bits and meeting a few great pirates along the way. Now really looking forward to the outlaw and becoming a 'proper' pirate if there is such a thing and meeting a load more, but having nagging doubts if when where etc I should be wearing kit.

I have largely refrained from wearing it for training as I understood this was frowned upon, but looking at the training thread seems some are wearing theirs everytime they venture out (don't blame them as it is pretty cool!). Can we have some clarity please for the sake of myself and others who are no doubt in the same position?

We're all here to challenge ourselves and make friends not enemies i'm sure! So, if there is a kit order in amongst this anywhere, do I qualify? Happy to give my life story if required!

BH..there is no interview, no life story needed or initiation ceremony.

Put your name on the list, get some kit and wear it...it really is that simple. I wear ,my kit when i want, i only have one cycle jacket so i wear that when i train....i work on the  basis i am mostly an adult and can make my own choices.

It looks to me like Schmunkee was trying to find out if that poster was A) a troll or B) someone that just wondered in and fancied some kit as they only have four posts to their name.

Schmunkee, how many tri tops are you waiting on before you have enough to put in an order?

BL...the Tri tops are the Moaco's.

Cheers FF, good to hear. Part of me quite likes not wearing the kit for training, at least til after I've gone the distance on jul 1st, adds to the specialness! but as you say most of us are mostly adults so that's my choice. But at the same time like you I only have so much kit so if I want / need to wear it it would be nice to know I'm not cheesing anyone off!

Let's not forget part of the attraction of being a pirate is the feeling of belonging to something, which you don't get if you feel uncomfortable in the gear!

Assume you'll be at outlaw, if so look forward to meeting you! Good luck with the rest of your training!
