  • Forgot that pointy brackets dont work

    Just imagine 'boggles' inbetween 2 pairs instead   image

  • It was a bit of a code message to TSA, so you're forgiven for boggling.

    Possibly, will they be bringing bike stands?

  • Im going long and velvet this year image

  • I'd heard TSA's a bit 'tall & smooth'!!  imageimageimage

  • Mrs SA.sound like a pint of guniess

     

  • I have to confirm with the venue today, so, any more for any more?????

    I think there's 30 of us.  I have to count up and double check.

     

  • I'm thinking of getting the train to Bristol. Can someone tell me if the swimming pool we are going to is anywhere near the station please? I don't want to miss out on the butterfly fun. image

  • No, no particularly. You'd have to research buses.
  • Here is the confirmed list of guests for the social.  If you think you should be on it and you're not, please shout loudly.

  • I thought Wifey was making an appearance?

  • Mouse - thanks.  I might drive instead in that case. I don't do busses. 

  • Swimming Champs should be confirmed tomorrow:

    Subject to confirmation we have 4 lanes from 3pm - 4pm at Hengrove pool (25m), total cost is £46 so thats about a fiver each. 

    Assuming there are 9 of us (which there are) thats 3 lanes for competion & 1 lane for general larking about, warm up, cool down etc.

    100 FC - 3 semi finals (winner goes through) and 1 final
    400 FC - 3 semi finals (winner goes through) and 1 final
    100 IM  - 3 semi finals (winner goes through) and 1 final
    150 FC  Relay (3x50m) - 1 final (3 teams of 3)

    List of interested participants:

    Barley
    Meldy
    Siggy
    7755Matt
    Cat
    SuperCaz
    Garr
    Ferret (who also can't swim fly)
    Soupy (never done fly ever)

  • Actually looking at the timings we could be tight so we'll have to turn around the events quickly.  400m x 4 events is going to eat the most time, instead of having a final we could just do it as a league table from 3x heats.

  • just looked and my cross country race should start at 12:45....so if the timetable remains the same i might be able to make the swim relays with my pullbuoy image

    So there is no assumption, is there image

  • Barley, due to my current level of swim fitness, I am more than happy to sit out the 400m FC!!  The alternative is to get the defibrulator ready and that may take up even more time!  image

  • I'm gettign scared about the swim too, as I'm crap at swimming image

    I may do the short one and let the rest of you crack on.

    I'd hate to hold up the party!

    Mrs Matt now has a lovely purpley velvety long dress for teh night.

    Mr Matt does not yet have DJ - but will be sorting it tomorrow (probably)

  • just to make it clear and can bring a signed doctors note to say that i need the pullbuoy as i need it for a life threatening problem............

  • I see my role in the whole swimming event , more as a holding towels and shouting encouragement sort of thing. image
    If I even tried to butterfly you'd be dragging me off the bottom of the pool with the big hook thingie

  • So we're definitely doing dresses then??

    **puts hot pants away** image

    You mean you'll be threatening Barlos life if he won't let you use it image

  • No rafiki..the life threatening problem is me drowningimage

    Hope.i bought a dress today...................might even think about buying some shoesimageimage

  • I was supposed to be going shopping tonight, OH was skiving off work early. Not happened yet
  • Firkin hell Seren ..... a dress!!!!    image


    So that leaves me and Barlos in the swimming challenge then??     He is toast.

  • I'm prepared to whoop your arse on any of the other events Meldy, other than the 400m!!  image 

  • SuperCaz is going to win this swim thing anyway. image image

    I'm just in it for the laugh. I'm an absolute cr@p swimmer but it will be a giggle.

  • Not necessarily Soup; being a good marathon runner doesn't make you a good sprinterimage
  • right then................after years of wearing trainers i went looking for shoes today...........

    i need to know how much walking will i have to do to get to this venue...........

    i was looking at heels from 1 inch to about 4 inches...................and i was struggling to stand in 4 inches.........

    i wpon't worry about the way back as i can just take the shoes off and walk barefooted.........
