  1. I'm planning to drive up on the Friday, staying at "Aquarius on the Beach" on the Strand - looks like walking distance (I hate porta loos)

  4. Yeah I'd have thought Shooting would have been on the limited alcohol list but it isn't just: Flying, Motorsports, Powerboating and, Archery. (BTW: WADA's value of 1 g/L is about 0.02 BAC - so stricter than our road rules for Open drivers). Remember though that TA rules have a .05% BAC (as per local road rules).
  5. Luckily diazepam is permitted at all times.... but I'd rather my back would articulate so I could make use of the beautiful weather this long weekend
  6. Can we ditch that horrible OD course (though it migh be better without the roadworks) and use the 1991 one instead for the OD?
  7. Looking but have not found a copy of the ad you seek as yet.... but some of the photo's in those mag's should probably never see the light of day again ....
  8. At least the swim is flat....
  9. Aim is for only one day off work. A 3hr drive after work on thursday (to a mates place in tannum) then on to townsvillle on the friday morning with an afternoon arrival for the sat race. Still a bit financially compromised after the HBT / 2XU fraca so air BnB (or offers) will be the way to go (getting on a bit for sleeping in the back of the car). Wanna join us in a campaign for Gold Coast 2018?
  10. Ditto no chocolate
  11. Remember to have something for "Swap night" as well (like a spare team Aust jersey usually goes well)
  12. Anyone going to the Townsville Triathlon Festival August 18 – 20, 2017. Thinking about the OD event and considering travel and accom options for a flying (by car from H.Bay) visit. Drive up thur night (via tannum sands stop over) /friday, race sat, drive home sun (or even home sunday via an overnight on sat night somewhere). thoughts? Any done this even before? What is the water like? etc
  13. 2018 ITU WTC (Gold Coast) - Australian team policies and selection page
  14. So TA have released the selection races and policy (and six weeks early than they had promised ). A ten race series eh? Cashing? Best three to count, March next year is going to be busy for some.....and two on the same day (Victor Harbour & Mooloolaba, where a first in an AG would equate to a 14th place in the sunshine) - some savvy people might do well to fly south after studying the poinstcore.... maybe I'll give it one more go
