Minimum order for LG is 12, but I have se our minimum order at 16 to allow for some people to drop out.

Kit is not ordered as and when each item hits the minimum order level. I have decided to do a kit order once a year, maybe twice depending on levels

FF was right re my motives in asking newbies why they want kit. I know people lurk and want to have a feel for what the Pirates are about, but I donk think it's unrealistic to say why you are interested in kit if you only have a handful of posts to your name.

As for when you wear it, that's entirely up to you. You've paid for it and it's yours to wear whenever you like. Personally, I only wear mine when I am with the Pirates whether that be for training or racing, but that's my choice

All, Just want to make it clear that anyone is welcome to order pirate kit, there is no vetting or acceptance process.

Id like to think that the pirates are open and inclusive, theyre not an official club, neither are there any rules. This works both ways, in such that if someone is asking for kit then I think its fair and a demonstration of our interest to ask them why what races theyre doing, maybe where theyre based etc. Its not a case that theyre being judged on this basis.

Also, sorting out the kit order can be an onerous process, collecting order confirmations and payments from dozens of people takes time. If someones asking for kit with their first post on the forum, I think its fair to ask them a little more about themselves. If that's their only communication with us how will we get in touch with them in a couple of months when the kit order is being organised.

As has been said about minimum orders, if we get to 16 and that comprises 6 people that have only posted once and arent contactable, change their mind etc then the order process gets postponed.

Everyone thats ever wanted/paid for pirate kit has had it collected.

I'm going to stick my head above the parapet (    ) and ask if I may order my very first bit of pirate kit?

I did the Kindrochit quadrathlon last year, am doing my first tri (oly) at the end of July, and IM next year (still to decide between IMUK or Outlaw).  It's all gastank's fault.  He made me do it.

I'd like a girl's tank top (if that's the one with the racer-back) please, whatever size equates with UK 8-10.

Let me know how to pay and what happens re delivery

Hi nurse.....i cant advise on kit size as I am  of the chunkier nature......but I love your symbol......what does it stand for......

let us know which race you do next year and you might find other pirates doing it......and all newbies ordering kit and wanting kit...........try and get to the outlaw this year to support..its going to be the biggest pirate get together ever and you are bound to find at least one pirate who can talk sense........also check out the non training kit which can be ordered whenever to show support.......

part of the pirate spirit in my opinion is to have a laugh and not take yourself support and help each get stuck in an join in the banter...or at least come and shake those pompoms at a race...........

Hi Seren

Unfortunately, I can't make Outlaw this year .  (Shhhhhhhh, don't tell gastank or he'll come looking for me).

The pirate attitude of not taking yourself seriously is right up my street, and I'm looking forward to meeting you all at some point.  Don't suppose anyone else will be doing Gullane Beach Tri?

Schmunkee, you do a brilliant job with the task of getting us all kitted out!
I don't think a little intro is too much of a bother, especially if it's someone who hasn't posted before.

Welcome Nurse Ratched.
And to any lurking newbies, don't be put off by dodgy dynamics between certain forumites. We are a very welcoming and encouraging group and you'll be guaranteed phenomenal support racing in the yellow and black.

Nurse, have a quick look at this link for what LG think their sizing is?!?!?. Not sure about the lady's, but as Schmunk's says the boys stuff is certainly on the small size! According to this I should be a small, but a med fits perfectly!!

Thanks, Raf, have just been looking at that very thing! Don't want to order a top then find it doesn't fit.

Sizing is a wierd thing - my Altura bike top is XXS, Nike running tops are S, but in Asics & Adidas I need a M.

Really, I'm surprised they fit someone who's 6'4" and 20 stone
