In the spirit of too many Port threads is never enough, I'm just wondering who's heading to Port to watch? I see on FB that Mrs Chat, Roxii, Oompa Loompa and a few others are heading up. Let us know if you're going and where you'll be.

 

I'm sure there's an opportunity for a little get together somewhere. Some group encouragement for those wearing the new Tranny race bibs might be just the ticket.

No tortoises this year. Mr T is having his follow-up eye surgery the Tuesday after. Cataract, triggered by the detatched retina surgery last year.

You should have come to the Challenge Half last November. It felt like being home. There is almst nothing like running across that bridge a couple of times then finishing.

 

Then again, Port I feel is so much better for spectators. Yes sure, the shute at Forster (all 300 mteres of it) was phenominal plus Head Street and parts of the Lakes Way. Port is so much better as you run and ride along Clarence/Stewart Sts and Pacific Drive. Town is really abuzz.

 

The crowds have got bigger each year at Port with a better club/family feel. Stewart Street is getting to be an absolute hoot with the tents set up and the crowd. I reckon last year there would have been 500 people on the hill (including the bloke in red undies, socks, hat and Mr squiggle nose from PIS). I am just devastated I cannot make it this year.

 

Try it, you will like it.

Rattie and I wish to invite you and Sunny to an evening of Tim Tam, Nutella and chocolate filled indulgence and delight at Port.

 

Since our last gathering of this nature at Port, you and Sunny have gone on to qualify for Kona whilst Rattie and I have gone on to bigger and better things, mostly bigger now that I think about it.

 

We look forward to the pleasure of your company.

 

Rattie and TGL

Did someone put it on Facebook?

 

 

Just over on the biggest loser thread.

 

 

It was a gate crashing joke

 

Never mind...

 

Yeah sorry, I was trying to be a smarty pants.

 

Instead of putting it on Facebook, put it over on the Biggest Loser thread, where we all obviously have a problem with TimTams. You might get some gate-crashers from there!

 

or maybe it was a different facebook joke i didn't get....oops

Putting it on facebook generally attracts hundreds of young kiddies who proceed to trash the joint, you see

Post it into Transitions FaceAche page and then link to that URL.

(That's what I did with the Tranny bum bib photos.)

 

And Coffs Pete, and Flanman, and Catcam and Pot, and Plugga and many other Trannies I cannot recall right now...

Would love to- 2016 ........if all goes to plan :)


What... Now you tell me! I'd have started training months ago if you told me we all had a date in Kona next year!!! :sleepy:.

Maybe we can just import some Palm Trees and enjoy all the Red Wine, Nutella & Tim Tams we like while sitting around some cheap resort pool somewhere else. Much easier that way ! :smile1:.
