nice avatar slag
Yes fingers crossed here too.
Thank you for the reassurance 8Iron, I needed that after seeing FB and the messages on here. Always nice to know, even if you can't state the race will go ahead that what is due to be my first IM will at least be more than likely to be there when i get there! Hotel booking in progress and training well underway.
Good luck with sorting out the issues that i can only imagine must be massive when it comes to putting on an event of this magnitude even without inter organisational difficulties!
one word "shit"
Challenge Henley it is then
So will you have any involvement in this years IMW?
The Long course weekend is still all yours though I hope?

Well I'm really sad to hear about the way you're being treated. Last years event was truly awesome.
you guys were awesome - thank you.
it made a huge impact that you were prepared to listen to and engage with the athletes - good luck with future events
Very dissapointing to see how Activity Wales are being treated after the tremendous event they put on for us last year. Seems that the WTC have stuck there collective heads in the sand ( or somewhere else where the sun cant reach ) , and by deleting those facebook comments , rather than take any notice of the huge amount of feedback from those that were actually there spectating/competing/volunteering and responding with something constructive... are really letting a golden opportunity to cement IMW as the "must do" event for the European tour slip through their hands. epic fail IMO
I'll remain hopeful , seeing as how they have my money for 2012 already ... but it definately wont be the same without AW involvement ( did mumbles last year as well.. another great AW event so not basing this view purely on IMW ) ... Quite frankly this is gonna be bloody awful for us slow old huffers that rely heavily on the support and encouragement of the locals and other competitors if it doesnt get the Piratey stamp of approval and a good dose of AW management
Fingers crossed 8iron et al
looking for the silver lining ... i guess if IMUK are at the helm then at least i can look forward to a shorter marathon ??
Hey Slag, don't worry, I'm still heading down there with my mate Kathy who will cheerfully shout 'SLUUUUT' at you again .
hahahahaha ... yes that was a special moment in last years . Thanks Pingu
gutted for you IW
