Robyn's E News 22 July 2013

Hi All,

That was another awesome weekend in tri paradise with lots happening.  Members were out training the house down or just enjoying all the Top End has to offer at this time of year.

Many were in action or helping out at the Darwin Half Marathon yesterday so there will also be some tired bodies this morning!

Speaking of members, if you haven’t yet re-joined (or joined) the best club in Darwin, it’s an easy online process which you can complete here.

Thanks to those who have already completed our Member Survey.  It appears lots of you will be extremely happy we are back at Casuarina Beach for an open water triathlon this weekend. Not keen on open water?  We are also offering a duathlon option again.

We would like to encourage all of our newer members to attend our Presentation Night Dinner on Sat 10 Aug.  It’s a great way to get to know fellow club members … and to see what they look like minus the sweat and lycra!
