Robyn's E News 1 July 2013

Hi All,

That’s half a year gone already.  How are you doing with your goals or New Year resolutions for 2013?

3.  Monica Stewart recently wrote to DCC regarding conditions at Lake Alex.  As a result, showers have been unblocked and DCC advise that the tidal pump has been fixed. Way to go Mon.

4.  Many of you will be up an age group from today.  Your age is calculated as at 31 December 2013 & it remains same until 30 June 2014.

5.  Should you participate in an away event, for example those run by WTC Ironman or IM 70.3 or compete in an ITU event, your age is calculated as at 31 Dec in the year of competition, so it is possible to race in two different age groups depending on events you enter.  Check individual event details.

6. Why is it so?  Different tri seasons in different hemispheres!  USA & European tri season is middle of the year whereas Australian triathlon races traditionally take place Oct – March. 

7.  Enjoy the fireworks tonight!!  Don’t forget to lock up the dog.
