What would it take for the Pirates to end?

Just before Symes posted what he did on the emergency kit thread, I was wondering the same thing. Sort of.

Please don't get me wrong in any way shape or form, I'm not advocating the end but I was wondering, if ever the Pirates just weren't, why would that be?

People? Personalities? Kit sale? Too big? Too small? Fungal infection? What?

It never floated to begin with, it was always a sub. Ask Plum.

While there's a plentiful supply of people wanting to take on various distances within tri and an ever-growing number of events then I suspect their won't be an end to the Pirates. 

It will be a different beast from year to year as different personalities come to the fore and others fall back.

Actually, changing the kit to pink might wipe them out, but that is clearly a ridiculous suggestion

KK, getting the quote thing to work triggering a mass extinction event?

Running out of spare cash might do the job.

Apathy.  Those (very nice & generous with their time) people who do all the organising will, one day, stop doing it & others will need to replace them.

On a smaller level, the URWFRC stopped partly because those who had given up their time decided to stop and others - me included - didn't want to take over.

The world will end if that happens G.

OK something that'actually possible.

We gather everyone who has ever worn the pirate kit in one place and wait for the earth to implode due to the gravitational force.

I'm not saying there are lots of pirates, more there is a lot to a pirate
