I would look twice at the postage rates....i think it will be more than a pound.......with the new sizing rules.........it will not fit in the size for a small or large letter so will have to be as a parcel.............I seem to remember that the lightest rate was £1.21 last summer ( might have increased) .also the quality of envelopes needed to ensure a safe delivery will come in at maybe 20p at least........so i think postage would have to be at least £1.50 over cost...might be worth getting a couple of bottles and putting them in a suitable envelope and taking them to th PO for a rate before fixing the final price........might work out ok if sent in pairs

I know I underestimated it for the buffs but lucky a number were hand delivered or sent in pairs so it evened out in the end.

thanks for the responses. like ditchy mentions i'll be looking for decent bottles like the SIS bottles or the recent cervelo bottles, not the use once and fall apart type bottles you get at an IM. shiva i'll send you an email later on.

I'll find out what the domain name registration and anything else that's needed will cost. it's peanuts really. but it'd be nice to have it covered for whenever the website gets handed on one day. also any excess monies could go to other things like pirate flags.

so, i'll do some searching later on and get back to you all some time soon.

wondering about postage, do you reckon it'd be ok just sending a bottle in one of those plastic mail bags? i ship ebay stuff all the time in them. would cut down costs alot and there won't be much difference in the level of protection offered.

JD Do you have an idea of timescales? Would expected delivery fit around any Pirate Massives? Could a person be nominated per area and hand deliver them/distribute them at further events?

Shouldn't think that bottles would crack in the post, only worry would be the lid splitting but should be ok. I've used them for ebay gear in the past as well.

cona, yeah i reckon a normal bag will be alright, maybe some packing around it.

schmunkee - i think it'll take a few months to sort. hopefully have the bottles in our hands by spring. if it's earlier then that's great. would be cool if the bottles delivery would fit around and event. but for the ease of my brain it may just be easier for me to ship them individually. we can see.

seen a few sites that do bottles for events but the quality looks a little off given it'd be nice if they lasted a couple of years. i had a look at the bottle that came through the post from triathlete europe the other day, freebie with the subscription. it's a SIS design type bottle, well made. anyway, took a look at their website and it looks good.

As for the correct yellow... The yellow is the above file did NOT exactly match the colour given below:

From Mister W's take on the Yellow in "The Piratesbuff thread"."In case anyone cares........ the colour is Yellow 108c. That's the official word from a very nice lady at LG."Looking this up here:Pantone coloursThis appears to give a rough RGB value of R=247 G=217 B=23 (HTML f7db17)The picture I originally posted above had a slightly different yellow (a bit brighter). I've now corrected the linked image to the above values.Note: It is likely that other sources will give slightly different conversions of the pantone to RGB values.e.g. The Pantone web site sample for 108C gives is shown with an RGB values of: R=252 R=217 B=0 (HTML FCD900)

750ml bigmouth 64mm capthe freebie i got was 800ml one, but the wider mouth will make it easier to get powders in i reckon.
