E News 2 April 2014

Hi All,

You have probably noticed that it is very busy in local tri-land right now.

We had our juniors in action at Lake Alexander last Sunday (a huge thank you to Luke Hansen and parents who helped clean up the party mess prior to the event).  Most of the juniors were brushing up their skills prior to the Kids Triathlon on this Saturday. Thanks to Luke and all whose wonderful volunteers for giving up their Sunday morning to assist with our junior program.  Thank you all.

Many of our members will be participating over this weekend in Triathlon NT’s Ray White Sprint weekend. 

The weekend after we have our very doable 300/13/3 triathlon coming up which has Try A Tri spots available for those wishing to have a go before joining Darwin Triathlon Club.

And wait there’s more.  New members can join now and get up to 15 months membership for the price of 12.  Details here.
