E News 9 April 2014

Hi All,

Congrats to all our members who competed in the Ray White NT Sprint Triathlon and the junior events at the weekend.  

We are so lucky to have this top tri venue right on our doorstep.  Having traffic management in place for the weekend along with flashing lights on Sunday, made for awesome races and there is no doubt this event just keeps on getting better and better every year.  

Thanks to Korgan Hucent and the team at Ray White for their continued support of this event, which also acts as Race #3 of our Sprint Series.

A huge shout out to Triathlon NT’s event committee headed up by Anna Goat, the junior development team guided by Tim Ellison, Sprint RD John Arrigo and all the wonderful volunteers who worked their butts off over the weekend. Good job!!

We can’t name all volunteers for fear of inadvertently overlooking someone, but you are all very much appreciated.

1.  Disappointment for Clare Labowitch on Sunday.  Clare had mechanical problems on the first lap of the bike. Better luck next time Clare!

2.  No names, but one of our competitors got a costly rules wake up on Sunday.  We recommend all our members have a read through the Race Competition Rules.  If nothing else, regularly refresh your memory regarding General Conduct rules. 

3.  Steve Goat, Bryan Hopkins and John Arrigo head to Malaysia for Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya this weekend.  Good luck guys.

4.  Don’t forget to lend a hand with packing up after events.  Many hands make light work and everyone gets home quicker if we all help out. 

5.  On volunteering, there are a number of events coming up that require volunteers in a number of positions (in some cases, including Race Director).  For these events to go ahead we need to have the key volunteers in place.  Please check the calendar and if you can help out please let us know.
