Robyn's E News 19 October 2011

Hi All,

The School Sport NT Triathlon was held at Lake Alexander at the weekend. A huge thank you to volunteer RD Jason Jones and all those wonderful folk who assisted Jason on the day. The field was smaller than anticipated but the competition was on. Our juniors are developing excellent tri skills (as many of you will have noticed at our club events). From little things, big things grow so watch this space next year, this event will be back!

We are expecting another bumper crowd for our event this weekend. The 300/13/3 format is always popular and it’s a great way to spend Sunday morning and still have time to head off for coffee or the markets afterwards.

No late comers please, not registered by 6.45am = no race.
