  • We are now heading towards 30 people for the pirate gathering.  So if you are unsure, don't be shy.  There will be a lot of people to mingle with.

    It's just a tenner a head for the buffet.  Simply add your name to the list (wherever that's gone!) or if you want to be a surprise guest, send me a message for details of where to transfer the money to.

    Then you can start planning your pirate party outfit.  The person who most looks like Johnny Depp or Kiera Knightly wins a prize.  Ahoy me hearties.

    As long as you promise to be do a proper job, what we need is someone who has a head for detail and stats!

  • You not swimming Schmunks?

    Meldy, I've not done butterfly properly since I was a schoolboy.  So, it will be fun watching us both have a go!!  image

    Why do I get this picture and song when I think of Coach standing at the poolside?!!

  • Always bringing up the rear me!  image

    Not due to this 'unforseen' event is it?  image

  • i thought the fancy dress was to see if anyone actually owned clothes that weren't made from lycra..

    I may have a paddle, but I won't be doing the champs.

    Being poolside with a clipboard is more my thing (if only to check out the variety of thighs image)

  • This swimming thing - how is going to work?  Do we have to do all 4 or is it an option of distances?  And how many in the relay? In my new spirit of JFDI I'm up for this even though I'm a cr@p swimmer.

  • Soupy, there's no way I'd be doing everything! So, I'd say just do the ones you think you can!

    Relays usually have 4 in a team so will probably be made up of whoever turns up?

    Coach is sorting it all out, apparently!image
  • i think i haver cross country on the saturday afternoon.........................its in bristol.

    And we all know who will actually end up sorting it, don't we image

  • Ah good!  Thanks Siggy. Am I right in thinking the IM is breast stroke, back stroke, butterfly and fc and in what order?  It could be a laugh. 

  • Butterfly, back, breast then crawl, I think.  And, I'd imagine, no more than a 25m length of each stroke!  

    I've not done any swimming since Outlaw, so I hope the life guard is up to speed on his first aid!!

  • This will be a hoot. Specially if Barlos is organising. image

  • Soupy, sure Siggy will give you a tow.image
