Flanman, If you see a really tall guy working to set up the place, say hello to him from me, Tony Delisser. His name is Angus and he's running the show as far as setup is concerned. He's an incredible guy, and we cut our teeth together on Triathlon up here in SEQ.

He was one hell of a triathlete in his day too.

Actually we suggested that logo back in the early days. They used it and put it on the IM stickers ( I have one at home).

Looks like he’s slammed his nuts in a drawer and wormed himself. So he should be fine come race day :lol:

Good to be back in Port after 8 years. Things are looking a bit changed.

Talking about bikes, I had a problem with my back wheel.  With no Shimano tent, I turned to experience. AP told me how to fix - thank AP. All done and dusted.

Well, looks like I may have a problem and hopefully it won’t flare up. Just noticed I’ve lost part of a big tooth filling. The tooth is only 60% original - the rest was filling. Didn’t feel it go. No pain yet but I am away from home for 3 weeks. Damn. 

Funny, I was only chatting to Peter Vaughan yesterday about his practice. Should have talked about something else  

Hopefully it will be ok until Monday. Looks like I will miss the Beer Mile and head to the dentist.

If you trained in the rain it wouldn’t have happened.

Tyno- it’s nice of our state governments to work with Wanda on getting the public holidays sorted. Qld Monday labour holiday for Port Mac, NSW Monday holiday for Cairns. Helps with travel 😉
