Pirate outings in 2014



  • So it's definitely Sweden then?

    No, sorry, meant Austria image

  • M..o.useM..o.use ✭✭✭

    Naughty step.  Now.

  • Plus Austria is where I asked the good lady Mrs GOM to marry me, and she has never looked back since.....................


    Oh by the way I am not here.....

  • M..o.useM..o.use ✭✭✭

    Are you sure?  I got the impression from the good lady Mrs GOM that she was sending you here???


  • Cheers Mousey.

    Aw it'll be lovely to see GOMs smiley little face all over Austria.

    Slim i am having a major purge on my spending habits i waste tons of cash on relacing kit that is still usable just cos i fancy new stuff and buying tri gadgets that i do not really need i think if i am pretty strict with myself i could get a trip abroad sorted it will be to late for Roth but if IM France is still open and if i have saved sufficient cash??

    If i do not go abroad i have something in mind but dont know if i have the guts to go for its basically Norseman but with midges

    Celtman! Have a look at the video belowimage


    RBM you should defo do the Celtman one day image Guys from my old Tri Shop in Edinburgh help run it. Got great reviews last year.  Don't worry about the midges - you'll be too high up in the mountains for them image

  • Mouse - I think Mrs GOM should enter, maybe you should send her a text/email and say I have just put her name on the entry list....

    Cougie - I have no idea what you mean..........image

  • M..o.useM..o.use ✭✭✭

    GOM - I think you should do it together.  You could nip off the run course and put on your wedding outfits to cross the line holding hands.


    I've not got her mobile number...

    Cougs - that made me laugh.

  • You do now.......

  • Oohhh. It's going to be a good 'Un! 

  • I'm only going to Austria if I can have a word with the feckin DJ first

  • fat buddhafat buddha ✭✭✭

    I have no idea what that DJ was playing when I went past but I just remember telling him to shut the fuck up..... image

  • I actually thought that we had a 2015 thread ...!  Spent half an hour looking for it  image

    I'm not sure starting one this early is wise as it will just fall by the way side througout this and early part of next year ... however, I have made contact with the Youth Hostel in Klaggers to see if they will take an early provisional booking considering the problems seemingly faced by those who have entered for next year, they seem fairly happy to take a provisional booking, they can only supply dorms of 4 or 6 which is what we had last time if I remember rightly.  I suspect 4 would be favourite over 6
    I have no idea how many people we are likely to have and dont expect anyone to have to make a decision now
    I would hazzard a guess of booking say 10-12 rooms now and that with a provisional booking it will be easier to add a few more if needs be ?


  • Nice one Meldy. Good idea! 

  • M..o.useM..o.use ✭✭✭

    That sounds perfect. I'm in. Thanks Melds. 

  • Just to throw a spanner in the works - Austria sells out rather quickly I believe. The core group that are likely to want to go will be drunk in a bar in Nice when Austria opens - or so someone who's a lot more clever than me pointed out - so entering may be difficult image (assuming Austria 2015 opens the day after Austria 2014??).

  • Oh thats an interesting one Rafi ... That must mean that Nice and Austria are on the same day then ??

  • and having checked yes indeed they are, what I cant find out is when it opened although dated the 3rd July as 'sold out in record time'

    Either way we will likely have some issues being able to register ... unless we look at someone like Nirvana to guarantee the places?  I doubt Ironman will be as accommodating as Roth were when we blocked a load of places

  • Austria sold out in about 12 hours this year.  It opened at 11pm our time on the Monday after the race.

  • Thank you ..  I couldnt find that info for love nor money  image

    What we need is for each person who is doing Nice to nominate someone back in Blighty to do the deed for them   .... what could possibly go wrong !!

  • Or maybe someone in Austria who could buy 'vouchers' for everyone image

  • Why dont we just send someone to Autria to queue up at the door with a wedge of readies ....... now who do we trust with that ??   image

  • image  I have a very trustworthy face, or so i've just told you.  Send me the money and i'll head to Austria to queue image

  • M..o.useM..o.use ✭✭✭

    The Ibis has pretty good wifi. We'll all have to pop back for 10 mins. 

  • Sober?  !!!    

  • Ummmm.... maybe we could go proper Piratey and ALL have a year off image

  • I think we've missed a trick and the 2015 anniversary should be at Bolton and we should all qualify   image

  • Lol! That would be so cool! What a holiday that would be image

  • What? Bolton? image

  • Bolton's pretty darn exciting I'll have you know  image

    Why can't I win the Lotto and fly all my pals to Hawaii, why? *waaaaaaaaa*
