  7. The 2017 Very Famous Transitions Beer Mile

    Well, just an update on Beer Mile. I was hoping to snare a FREE entry to Kona for the winner of the BM, but the 10 lottery slots have already been given out. So, I tried for a FREE entry for IMOz 2018....again no success! However, our very famous and very generous Secret Sponsor is in again. So the SS is supplying the beer (for Trannie Members), the trophies for both the BM and the Half BM, and also more souvenir IMOz 2017 Beer Mile Badges. That's a cash donation of over $600. Thanks again Transitions Beer Mile Secret Sponsor. Anyway, I have been advised that IM will donate some merchandise. So, if you have any special requests send them through.I'm hoping that we might get some collector items like T shirts where "Anthing is Possible"....that is correct spelling! Maybe some finisher towels and merchandise from previous races. I'll let you know. But I do need an idea of how many entrants are coming. So, if you could register your intention to attend this training event, then list yourselves on this post. Whether you're doing the Beer Mile or the Beer Half Mile. Special guests.......TBA! See you at Port and if you've registered come and see me for your souvenir 2017 IMOz Transitions Beer Mile badge. OO ROO Pete
  8. Accomodation available at Port Macquarie

    Lotto winnings? You live in Russell Lea....must be worth a fortune. I'm just a poor country cousin. Room is still available. I tried to send you a message from the beach. If you're interested, give me a call on 0418665656. OO ROO Pete
  9. If you haven't found any Accom at Port Mac yet, I have an apartment on the bike and run legs overlooking the river, ocean and beaches. There is a bedroom with 2 single beds with BIR, TV and the use of the rest of the apartment. There is a good sized kitchen, verandah, lounge room, washing machine, dryer and a lock-up garage. Located on Stewart Street corner, just opposite the drinks station and penalty box. It's booked for the week and will cost $350 for the room. I have had this apartment for the last 5 years and I have the double room. PM me if you're interested. Thanks Pete https://www.stayz.com.au/accommodation/nsw/north-coast/port-macquarie/115215
  10. 2017 Port Beer Mile ?

    Hey Hoover, I just put the post up an hour ago. Thanks for being on the ball. See you there.....CoffsPete
  11. The 2017 Very Famous Transitions Beer Mile

    Woops, meant to post that it is time for me to step down as organiser of the Beer Mile and am looking for a replacement for 2018 and beyond. If you're interested then PM me and we can go from there. Just have to finish IMOz within the time, there is a lot of panache being the organiser of Beer Mile and there are lots of helpers. Thanks in advance, CoffsPete
  12. How's the training for IMOz going? Should be tapering about now? However, you should be looking at the main event at IMOz! So, it's time to get ready for the very famous 2017 Transitions Beer Mile to be held at Town Green on 8 May 2016 at 3:30pm in front of the pub at the finish area of IMOz. We are now recognised as part of the Finishers Celebrations and the Beer Mile will occur after the Roll Down Ceremony. I will contact our very special Secret Sponsor and hopefully they will be supporting the Beer Mile yet again....this is the 7th year that we have had this support from this amazing anonymous sponsor...Thankyou again. I believe that we will have some very famous IMOz Legends and Hall of Famers in attendance again....think Karen Pini, Ken Baggs OAM, DCM (DO Come Monday) and some more wonderful personalities, just like the 2015 30th Anniversary IMOz and accompanying Beer Mile. I would love to get some exposure on TV, such as Ch 8 (the Ch 9 equivalent for cities) and I have wriiten to Peter FitzSimmons several times to get a mention in the SMH and The Age (I expect). So, if anyone from Port Macquarie has any contacts with Ch.8 or Ch.6, then can you try to get some coverage for the event. I believe that we should also be part of the IMOz video highlights, that we used see at the Awards Ceremony, so let's try to swing them around for some footage. Anyway, for those that don't understand what the Transitions Beer Mile is about...It is the celebration and relief of having finished IMOz within the cut off time so that you qualify to race the Transitions Beer Mile the next day. It consists of drinking a can of beer, running 400M (440 yards), drinking another beer, running 400M etc etc, until you have run a mile (1760 yards or 1600M) and drunk 4 cans of beer. Your choice of dress is encouraged and we have the usual boys dressed up as girls, boys dressed up as dogs. Go Snoopy from 2015, there are also Fairies, Dinosaurs, German Beeren Hausen, ladies called Carrots, the Safari Suit Twins, the Stig, Angus from AC/DC, blokes wearing attire from their youth and the list goes on and on. However, you should look at some of the accompanying vids from previous Beer Miles. There is also the Transitions Mile Of Famers perpetual trophy and if you believe you should be on it for this year, then PM me and for $5 and a good record of service or participation in previous Beer Miles, I will get you on this year's honour list. Also, I see that there is a Half Ironman on the same day as IMOz, so we are having a Transitions Beer Half Mile for those from the HIM who want to enter. Also, as we recognise the Responsible Drinking of Alcohol we will allow those that want to compete and drink Chardonnays, Milk, Gatorade or even Soft Drink. Unfortunately, there is no award available for these responsible drinkers at this stage. We're hoping that Big Chris will come on board again with the Timing Guys to do the timing again and also set up the on-line registration for this 'training event'. So, look out for his link for registering. Here are some vids of previous Trannie Beer Miles and accompanying links to relevant items. 2015 IMOz Beer Mile Karen Pini... for those of us from Forster IM days, Miss Karen would welcome every finisher across the line and she is, like Ken Baggs an IMOz Hall of Famer. Ask some of your older IM mates for Karen's rise to fame, apart from Paul Hogan's show.

I knew my finishing performances would be adopted by the hierarchy eventually. Here is a clip of a typical turn around at the Finish Line! The reason for this is so we don't jeopardise the licensing of the area for IMOz. Our finishing area will be close to the finish line, but away from the designated licensed area. and finally http://www.youtube.c...bed/oXvJ8UquYoo As most of you city slickers go to gyms and train to music, here are some clips to help you with your Beer Mile Training.... https://www.youtube.com/embed/CZ85j6U2Fvs And finally if you want to lose some weight, have a look at this bloke's story..... http://www.nasvik.se/fat-to-fit/ I will post again in the next week with more info, but please post your intention to attend this 'training event'.

    Woops, just realised that I had better start training for the Big Day. So, I'm in for IMOz no 16 and IM no 35. I'm a bit worried with my Taper Hard Train Easy motto, that has given me 34 starts and 34 finishes. Sort of an enviable record that I don't want to tarnish...so help me along if you see me out there. Oh, of course the Very Famous Transitions Beer Mile will be on again and we have even been asked to be part of the celebrations on the Monday afternoon. See the post for the Beer Mile later today. So.... 15-276 is the number. Looking forward to catching up with you all.
