    There will be a briefing for volunteers in Narberth Rugby Club at 7pm on Friday 30th September 2013. The Dynamos will be running the feed station again under the leadership of our Chairman, however, we will also be looking for marshals out on the course.

    There is a vacancy for a Bike Course Team Leader for the Lamphey Section. If anyone is interested please let me know and I will pass your details on to the organisers. If you want to know what it involves I can talk you through it.

    Why are they doing a briefing 3 weeks after the event?


    Valleyman, I’ll still be away but, I’d like to offer my services at the Narberth feed station. Oh and I’m a medium for the obligatory fetching T-shirt.

    Pete, I think you are confusing the long course week end with the Iron Man event?



    He means 30th August. Next Friday.

    Fellow Dynamos, allow me to explain the confusion.

    This Friday is actually the 30th of September if you are using the ValleyRoad calendar, which is a development on the old fashioned Gregorian calendar that the rest of us use.

    It differs in many ways.

    Firstly, the working week is restricted to four days, Monday to Thursday, with Friday being a day of rest or ‘working from home’. Strict adherents occasionally manage to reduce the working week still further but most HR departments see through this ruse and find it unacceptable.

    Secondly, as we all know, the hours are slightly different in that the o’clock is at 5 past the hour rather than when the big hand points to the 12.

    Thirdly, the Festival of Ironmann is celebrated. This is similar to our Ironman and often falls on the same day but, during the Festival of Ironmann, ValleyRoad calendar followers career wildly around roads closed to non-followers wearing visi-vests and mirror sunglasses whilst chattering excitedly to other believers on walkie-talkies.

    Hope this helps.


    Its a fair cop….


    Hey up, what time does the station in Narberth start and finish? Id like to help out for the duration if possible x


    We need to start setting up by 8 to half past. I`m told there is 300 more competitors this year so we will be busy.

    We are going to need between 20 and 25 helpers. So far about 10/12 have told me they are coming. If you can make it and haven`t told me yet can you post on here or give me a txt just so i know we will have enough help. Thanks


    Cool. I’ll be there, let me know if we’re running low and i’ll see if i can get some mates to help.


    I’m available to help in Narberth feed station

    Disgruntled Grockle said to me
