The 2014 Outlaw feedstation/supporters thread

Roll up! Roll up! Which of you lubbly pierights wants to volunteer for the pieright partay of the year?

The Outlaw feedstation is fast becoming part of pirate folklore and legend.  I'm sure all who have helped out (or used the feedstation as an athlete) will tell you what great fun it is and how much the athletes appreicate the banter and support as they pass through.  Meldy and I have offered to help Barlos and Schmunks out this year and give them a bit of a rest by doing the organisation.  We can't do it without you though, so, get your name down on the list to help out at the race this year (27 July) and let's show everyone how fantastic we are.  Again!

Yargh!

  • Can't commit this far out due to work, but if it's at all possible, i'll be there!

    lets be honest.... its all prep for an Ironman on my 100th birthday
  • Yayyyyy Outlaw time   image

  • Would it be okay for my wife and two children to help on the feed station. They were supposed to help last year but the car broke down does everyone remember. Yes get all your jokes in now.

  • Feck! Wrong profile!

  • Thank you Ladies for your kind offer to foster Barlos' baby for 2014 to give us a break image

    I am sure you will do a sterling job (and I am sure Meldy's strong arm tactics are more forceful than mine) but if you have any questions, please shout.

    I would have said to ask Barlos, but we all know he just 'turned up on the day' in the past image

  • Tea pot one will be up after she has done the relay swim. I imagine there may be the usual few that do this after watching the swim/doing it.

  • Schmunks - I'm not sure our spreadsheets will be as pretty as yours.

    BM - no problem for wife and children.  As FF mentioned, if family are racing then the supporters often come out after they have seen their athletes out of the water.  We wouldn't want that any other way (it does take a bit of thinking about logistically but isn't a problem.)  How old is smallest?  You may need to bring something for him/her to do if they get bored.  Get their names on the list!

    FF - awesome, are you racing too this year?

  • I'm in, but can't do the list thing cos I is on a Ipad image
  • A bit far out for me to commit at this point but if I can make it I will.

  • I can still see it  image

  • Mouse - sorry i am racing, at least the thong can stay at home this year.

  • FF - if you wear the thong on the bike it will certainly stop people drafting you! image

    wife and I will be along again this year.  We had a great time last year.

  • I'm in.

    iPads list issues though
  • I'm in - as long I can walk talk and function as I believe it's the week after ironman UK

    Also on ipad so can't create & add to list, sorry 

  • I can still see it image
  • Oh feck, and between saying I'm in and now I've had an exciting holiday prospect that's the last week of July!
  • I'd like to join in on the shenanigans... I'll bring beer...we can drink beer right?
  • I'd save the beer for when you get back....it's a rather busy little set up this feedstation thing.

  • Raf and FF - you will be missed but it will be fab seeing you whizzing through. Raf - we could organise you a takeaway sandwich?

    I had a lovely e-mail from OSB yesterday.  I'm really excited already.

  • Mouse, TP1 is planning on bringing the portable stove to make bacon sandwiches and kettle for tea and coffee for everyone again just in case you were building a list up of jobs.

  • Bacon butties? Mugs of tea?



    I may have to cancel my plans for the day and join you lot image
