Soooo, who is ordering what from the uniform shop?  Apart from the race kit and the free kit, I might get the run singlet and the visor - mainly so I have stuff to swap for stuff from other countries. 

I'd love to know what others have done!

Suit #1

Jacket

Crop top

Free uniform

trisuit,

(free stuff)

a hat (for my shiny head)

some bike kit (coz I want to replace my current kit as it's from a supplier I have ethical objections to)

one of those green and yellow jackets (coz it's a nice colour change from my other one (in blue from '09 ) (and '91 just doesn't fit anymore))

and a supporters shirt for my daughter as she is awesome :)

Was tiding up in my shed today and came across my accounting of expenses (letter to my club (HBTC)) from the 1991 ITU Worlds  (Gold Coast) for comparison:

Uniform (togs, singlet, run shorts, nicks, casual shorts, tracksuit) ...........     $279.15

Optional parade hat (akubra style) ...........    $40

Optional Team Aus t-shirt ........       $15

Entry fees (inc: carbo and awards banquet tickets (the latter at the Casino), & quality sports bag full of goodies (still using! )) .....   $100

Accom - 1 night across the road from the venue (now Griffith Uni I think) ......    $60

total:......... $494.15

With the current suits and sizing being a bit on the small side, there are a few comments. Might not be a bad thing! 

Plus somehow we have navy blue shorts and a dark charcoal tee with a solitary green sleeve stripe.  Not the greatest match.

Wonder if we'll have to walk the 1.5km from transition to the swim start...  Bag drop at swim start is strange unless they plan on transporting the bags to transition.

I might use a mobike (to get to the start).

And yes, I dont like the look of the bike course.

it will be interesting navigating the corners in a draft legal race where I would assume a significant portion are unaccustomed to this sort of racing...
