Given the late decision for the 2017 pirate championships, makes sense to start the discussion early.
Decisions used to be made around the campfire (pile of beer cans and pizza boxes) at Bala. With Lanza around the same time as Bala and a relatively large number participating/supporting this year, I suggest the final decision is made there. Also serves to ensure there is a critical mass of support committed to the chosen event.
Ive no strong opinions but would welcome suggestions and a good rationale for the reason an event should be chosen or support for someone elses suggestion.
One off the wall idea I have (but would take some organising), Pirate DIY Ironman, we could investigate hiring a location and facilities (accom, camping, lake) like Avon Tyrell where Enduroman takes place each year or one of the South Cerney lakes? Could run a single on Sat & Sun (option to do the double), and awards/essential pi$$ up on Monday.
