Its not a pirate team, its a team where made up of pirates...
Yes triathlete mag wants to get pirate subs and to use the pirates to do race reports but this all came off the back of me asking for a discount on xendurance and found out the guy who does this product in the UK is also the publisher for the mag and so an idea was born which I thought would be welcome (cheers Joddly) but obviously trying to pass on a bit of a deal is selling you all out.
So please return all you pirate kit to Barlos, he'll then emblazon it the appropriate logos and return it....
Don't like the offer - don't use - don't like that people that have / are /could be pirates have a team that only references them by saying they met within PSOF then I'm sorry. But that's the facts.
As Adam mentioned, I'm the tight Scot looking for free stuff, no one else on the team particularly likes the idea, possibly (read totally) my fault for using Freespeed as a bit of a template.
Who's keeping you quite? You find a lot your self-worth and identity through a club which is basically like any other tri club but without the organised training aspects and committee - it's just a virtual club with a strong social element, not everyone gets on, there's little cliques and sub-groups and there's a shared kit.
It does stand on it's own merits - it's not called the Pirate / PSOF race team - but we are who we are and most of them team choose to still race in pirate kit. There's no plans for new team kit.
Tell you what - I'll not post anything about the team here and if Cougie says so, I'll not post anything in the FB group either and people can find out info from the website when ready of the team facebook page.
