Mouse, Florida sold out in under 60 seconds this year and its in November plus its some 300 miles away from Disney
As IM gets all the more popular then I suppose you run the risk each time that not everyone will get in .. unless we get block booking like we did *errrr ...* Switzerland?
Apart from Sweden is there an IM we havent done (discounting the ones Stateside)?
I think they have all been keen choices ... too many to choose from !AlmereBarcelonaSwedenVichyWales
This year I'm going to Vichy with a couple of other pirates. Maybe even Squishy.
If this is for 2014 id vote Barcelona, then Mrs Matt and I can go on after to visit family, make it into a proper holiday
Do you think it would help to get the big Pirate ship floating in a similar direction to reinvigorate the big Pirate gathering at Bala?
I think Bala was great as a 'secondary' Pirate gathering for the year and gave an early opportunity for people to camp together, meet fellow Pirates and discuss the next year's race.
I know it wouldn't work as a race for the Lanza racers this year but nothing to stop everyone coming anyway as it's such a great location for a break.
So, see you all there!
Max - be good to see Dave and you of course if you can make it. Be nice if it was a little less rain and wind then in 2011!
last obstacle is to explain to my wife where she's spending her birthday again this year
It had better feckin not be
I loved bala the years i did it.would love to go back again some year
Yeh, but for us civilised people (with or withour skirts ) its probably quicker to get to Sweden than Bala!
